‘Marjorie Prime’ Trailer: Jon Hamm stars in a Black Mirror-esque look at mortality and technology

This trailer is some straight-up Black Mirror shit, and I mean that in the best way possible.


Jon Hamm as a hologram sounds like a future I want to live in. He stars alongside Lois SmithGeena Davis, and Tim Robbins in director Michael Almereyda‘s (Experimenter) science-fiction drama, Marjorie Prime. The movie was well-received at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

In the future, there’s a company providing holographs of the deceased. Jon Hamm is playing one of those holograms, Walter, for Marjorie (Smith). At the age of 86, Marjorie isn’t doing well and wants to piece together the past with her deceased husband. Marjorie and her children, played by Robbins and Davis, go through some painful history together to give Walter, Marjorie’s “Prime,” an understanding of the man he was.
