Are you starved for some smart sci-fi this summer? Us too. Sure, "Edge of Tomorrow" had a fair amount of brains, but always coming second to the explosions, and other than "Under the Skin," not much has really scratched the brainy, emotional science fiction itch that things like "Moon" and "Upstream Color" managed to in recent years.

I Origins

Are you starved for some smart sci-fi this summer? Us too. Sure, "Edge of Tomorrow" had a fair amount of brains, but always coming second to the explosions, and other than "Under the Skin," not much has really scratched the brainy, emotional science fiction itch that things like "Moon" and "Upstream Color" managed to in recent years.

But in a few weeks, that might change, because after the film premiered at Sundance back in January, Fox Searchlight are opening "I Origins," Mike Cahill's follow-up to his cult hit "Another Earth," in theaters, and it's right up that sort of street. To mark the build up to the release of the film, which our Sundance review called "heady and deeply moving," we've been given some exclusive images, as well as details to the soundtrack (by Will Bates of Fall On Your Sword and Phil Mossman with tracks by The Do and Radiohead also included). Take a look below, along with the official synopsis for the film. 

I ORIGINS, the second feature film from writer and director Mike Cahill, tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye. He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen (Brit Marling), they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory. Also starring Steven Yeun and Archie Panjabi, the film is produced by Mike Cahill, Hunter Gray and Alex Orlovsky.

Starring Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Steven Yeun, Archie Panjabi

Fox Searchlight will release "I Origins" on July 18th in NY and L.A. and a rollout to additional cities will follow it. The soundtrack arrives July 15th via Milan Records.
