But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not — but he’s on a mission to find out.”
Guy Pearce, Eliza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan and Toby Kebbell also star in the movie, which is based on characters from the Valiant Comic Universe.
