On Screen: Ryan Reynolds in an Endless Pool

In the taut thriller

Self/less
, the Endless Pool® scored a featured role in a suitably high-tech environment.

The movie combines an intriguing premise with some spectacular action sequences for a slick, escapist summer entertainment! You can see an extended preview in this video. The Endless Pool pops up around the 1:17 mark.

In the film, a dying real estate mogul (Ben Kingsley) has his consciousness transferred into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds) in a process that could potentially give him immortality. As the older man adapts to his new body, he uses an Endless Pool to develop coordination and stamina. While the movie clearly fits into the science fiction genre, using an Endless Pool for physical therapy and stroke training certainly qualifies as science fact!

The Endless Pool has been developing its Hollywood resume for some years now. In

Saving Mr. Banks
, starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, six off-screen Fastlane® swim-current generators created the raging river current from which a young girl saves her mother. And in the cult favorite
Gattaca
, starring Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, the Endless Pool helps establish the swimming theme, which plays a key role throughout.

In both

Gattaca
and
Self/less
, filmmakers depict the technology of tomorrow by employing a current-model Endless Pool. We take that as a compliment!
