Limitless, The Movie - Now a TV Series

Limitless, The Movie
Have you ever seen this movie? Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, and Robert De Niro are the stars.

The movie has now morphed into a TV Series carrying the same title as the movie 'Limitless'.

Perhaps you managed to catch the TV Season opener this past week (September 2015)? It was entertaining, and I'll be including this one on 'my fave new fall shows' list. 

Although the stars of the TV Series are Jake McDorman and Jennifer Carpenter, fans of Bradley Cooper will still see him in several episodes playing the character he becomes in the Movie, 'Senator Edward Mora' ... enough of a reason to watch!

In the movie, Bradley Cooper plays Eddie Morra, who's a struggling artist with a case of writers block that essentially spirals him into a less than stellar life.  

He runs into the brother of his ex-girlfriend who introduces him to a drug that is designed to take the human brain from 20% usage to essentially 100% usage. The movie offers a lot of twists and turns and certainly keeps your interest all the way to the end. 

I've always been fascinated by the untapped power and mystery of the human mind and wondered what society would be like if our brains worked at 100% capacity. If every living soul operated at maximum potential, would that generate more good, more evil, or both?
In the movie, Eddie Morra is learning at light speed, working at maximum capacity - he learns to play the piano in three hours, he learns new languages almost instantly and he becomes a financial genius. 

Here's the 2011 Movie Trailer for Limitless:



Can you imagine having that kind of brain power?

  1. I am always on the look out for good movies to see. I don't recall seeing this trailer when the movie was out so I'm very glad you shared it. This looks like something I need to add to my "to see" list.

  3. I haven't seen it at all so I very much appreciate the recommendation. My husband and I are always looking for shows that we both will enjoy. Limitless looks like it would be a great fit for us.

  4. Looks like a movie I would like very much. Remember that John Travolta movie Phenomenal? Reminds me of that premise and I love that movie. Going to add it to my list.

  5. We watched the premiere of the new Limitless television series and I was surprisingly impressed. Not sure what I expected, but both my husband and I were glued to the screen and that doesn't happen very often. I hope the rest of the series doesn't disappoint. I had no idea there was a movie!
