The science fiction thriller leaps into a new realm with JUMPER, which begins the epic adventures of a man who discovers that he possesses the exhilarating ability to instantly teleport anywhere in the world he can imagine. From New York to Tokyo, from the ruins of Rome to the heart of the Saharan Desert, anywhere is possible for David Rice (HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN), until he begins to see that his freedom is not total, that he’s not alone…
But when David discovers another young man like himself, a fiery, globetrotting rebel named Griffin (JAMIE BELL), the truth of his existence begins to dawn. He is not just a lone freak of nature, but part of a long line of genetic anomalies known as Jumpers, none of whom are safe. Now David has been identified by the secret organization sworn to kill him and all Jumpers. And he is about to be relentlessly pursued in a chase that will literally bound around the planet – as he becomes a key player in an unseen battle that has been raging, invisible to most of humanity, through the ages.
Director Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity” and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”) brings the mythic fantasy of JUMPER to life with a mix of state-of-the art special effects, international intrigue and a savvy twist on a modern-day superhero in the making. The film stars Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, Samuel L. Jackson, Diane Lane, Michael Rooker, AnnaSophia Robb and Max Thieriot.
