The trailer for Limitless has been revealed, starring Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.
Eddie spends much of his time convincing others that he could be the Next Big Thing, and very little time actually writing. His life appears to be going nowhere, until he bumps into an old friend who tells him of a new wonder-drug, NZT.
As promised, the drug appears to allow Eddie to make full use of his brain, whereas most humans function using just 20%. He is able to learn a language, analyse complex data and, of course, finish his book in record time, becoming ‘the perfect version’ of himself.
He’s seemingly taken under the wing of Carl Van Loon, played by Robert De Niro, but the side effects of NZT begin to take their toll, and Eddie soon begins to question the truth about the mystery drug’s origin and purpose.
Bright Star‘s Abbie Cornish and London Boulevard‘s Anna Friel will also join the cast of this thriller, which certainly seems to be full of potential. In fact, you might know more about this film than you realised, as Cooper has been taking part in a spoof viral campaign for NZT in order promote the film for some time.

The film is directed by Neil Burger, the man behind the critically acclaimed period drama, The Illusionist.
