Plot Summary

Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominees Johnny Depp ("Pirates of the Caribbean," franchise, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory") and Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Charlize Theron ("Monster," "The Italian Job") star as the perfect all-American couple--astronaut Spencer Armacost and his beautiful schoolteacher wife--so passionately in love they can sense each other even while he floats in space and she is two hundred thousand miles below. But in two minutes it all turns to inexplicable terror. For two minutes, Armacost completely loses consciousness while on a space mission, returning home just barely alive. His wife senses something amiss from the moment he lands on earth. She begins to have strangely violent dreams--dark, paranoid thoughts--and the sensation that her husband is not the lover, or the man, he was.

are you kidding me johnny depp is so hot and the best actor ever and charlize is the best actress ever this movie was great


You know I don't know why this movie has such bad ratings I just watched it for the first time today and I thought it was a great movie & for another plus johnny depp is super sexy and a great actor the ending kinda blew me but I still love the movie.

Not a great movie, but...

if you want to have a few laughs, watch this back to back with Trancendence. It’s almost as if they reworked the plot of this movie and made it work.
