Unveiling of “Mickey 17” at CinemaCon

During the Warner Bros. panel at CinemaCon, Robert Pattinson and director Bong Joon-Ho, introduced their upcoming science-fiction drama, “Mickey 17”. The novel based film features Pattinson in a unique role that sees his character die 17 times.

Plot and Unique Narrative

“Mickey 17” offers a daring narrative of danger and rebirth. Mickey, played by Pattinson, is the go-to person for highly risky missions. Following a dangerous task, a new body is born with butterflies of past memories. The unique selling point of the story is Mickey’s seventh death, where he understands the circumstances of his deal. Interestingly, Pattinson’s character is cloned each time he dies and sent on yet another near-impossible mission.

Star-Studded Cast

The film doesn’t shy away from flaunting its star power. Apart from Pattinson, the movie stars big names like Steven Yeun, Tony Collette, Naomi Ackie, and Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo, popularly known for his role in Hulk, plays the antagonist. While the unique narrative provides a fresh twist to the plot, the commanding performances will undoubtedly make the viewing experience more immersive.

Comedic Approach

JoBlo’s editor-in-chief, Chris Bumbray, was quick to highlight the film’s comedic touch. Scored by “Ain’t that a Kick in the Head” by Dean Martin and Nelson Riddle, the trailer was jam-packed with humor. It showed Pattinson, the expendable man at a space station, performing various suicide missions. Multiple versions of Mickey end up alive simultaneously, making for comedic chaos.

Praise from Pattinson

Robert Pattinson has addressed Bong Joon-Ho as a hero. He believes the filming of “Mickey 17” had been one of his most enjoyable experiences. According to Pattinson, the film’s uniqueness lies in the lack of external appearance changes for different Mickey clones, keeping them uncannily similar. This characteristic feature adds an intriguing twist when Mickey 17 meets Mickey 18–a version with frontal lobe damage and absolutely no impulse control.


“Mickey 17” is a bold step in the realm of science-fiction dramas. From its riveting storyline to its top-tier cast, it certainly offers something different in the genre. The clones, high risk missions, and comedic touch blend to create an original and engaging narrative. As the film prepares for its IMAX release, fans eagerly await what promises to be a memorable cinematic experience.
