Michael Bay (ARMAGEDDON, PEARL HARBOR) directs this futuristic action thriller THE ISLAND, starring Ewan McGregor (STAR WARS: EPISODES I & II) and Scarlett Johansson (LOST IN TRANSLATION, GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING).
Lincoln Six-Echo (McGregor) is a resident of a seemingly utopian but contained facility in the mid 21st century. Like all of the inhabitants of this carefully controlled environment, Lincoln hopes to be chosen to go to "The Island" - reportedly the last uncontaminated place in the world following an ecological disaster that reportedly took the lives of everyone on the planet...except them.
However Lincoln soon discovers everything about his existence is a lie. He and all of the other inhabitants of the facility are actually human clones whose only purpose is to provide "spare parts" for their original human counterparts.
Realizing it is only a matter of time before he is "harvested", Lincoln makes a daring escape with a beautiful fellow resident named Jordan Two-Delta (Johansson). Once they are on the outside and away from the prying eyes of the institute, the innocent friendship they shared, begins to develop into something deeper. However relentlessly pursued by the forces of the sinister institute that once housed them, Lincoln and Jordan engage in a race for their lives to literally meet their makers.
