Kill Switch (2017) Script

[ Helicopter whirring ]

He is looking better already.

Maybe.

Still hasn't said a word.

It's gonna take time.

They've got the best doctors in the world here.

It's gonna happen.

Nervous? No.

Maybe... a little bit.

No.

Are you turning soft on me?

No, I can't. I'm on call.

I thought this was a celebration.

It is, kinda.

NEWSCASTER: The world awaiting anxiously for Alterplex to launch what the company claims to be the final generation of energy solutions.

If you're joining us now, we are less than a minute away from entering a new future.

This is really big for me.

I want it to be good for you guys, too.

You know? I know.

And I'm proud of you.

I think.

NEWSCASTER: Alterplex gives the green light.

Hey, Donny?

Donny, come stand here.

T minus 15.

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six...

Thanks for being here.

Are you kidding?

Two...

[ Zapping ]

[ Dishes rattling ]

Oh, it's okay.

[Sighs]

What's it doing?

[ Chuckles ]

It's working.


[Whooshing ]

[Will panting]

[Alarms sounding ]

[ Hydraulics hiss]

[ Readout beeping ]

[ Grunting ]

[ Groans ]

[Thrumming and alarms fade]

[ Hydraulics hiss]


[ Static ]


Okay, okay.

Ooh, shit.

Ah, I'm exiting the lab.

Oh, ah.

Unidentified male body.

Identified as Dr. Klintsen.

Oh, God.

[Sighs]

Shit.

This is Will Porter, mission log one.

Uncertain as to my coordinates.

The jump was most likely successful, but I can't confirm.

Personal BCI non responsive.

New BCI procured, but battery depleting.

Writing is mirrored.

Either I'm in the echo, or I've sustained serious cerebral damage during jump.

The lab appears critically damaged.

Destruction appears recent.

Multiple deceased scattered among the rubble, including Dr. Klintsen.

Heading outside to try and confirm coordinates.

This is mission log two, outside of lab.

More deceased here.

Oh, God.

[Thunder crackling ]

I have a visual on the tower.

Before executing the objectives, I need to verify if this is really the echo.

[ Beeps ] Shit!

Sorry, buddy.

[Sighs]

[ Ringing tone]

Will? Abby?

Oh, my God, Will! What...? What happened?

We thought you were dead. Where are you?

We'll come and get you.

Wait, Abby, I need to know what happened.

Where have you been? The lab was attacked, Will.

The box was destroyed.

We moved to a camp on the outside of...

Wait, back up. What'd you say about the box?

I said they destroyed the box.

Destroy it? How? Who's "they"?

They shot the place up, Will. I saw it.

Are you sure the box was destroyed?

I'm sending you our coordinates.

What the fuck is going on?

[Thunder rumbling]

[ Gentle piano music playing ]

WOMAN: Alterplex cares.

We understand.

The future of mankind is not out there.

It is in here, and we have found the solution.

We have developed a clean and simple way of converting mass into pure energy.

In just a few more months, we will launch our energy tower, powering our world for millennia to come.

Alterplex Energy. Clean. Simple. Safe.

[ Drone whirring ]

ABBY: Mr. Porter.

Abigail Vos, Chief of Alterplex Operations.

Welcome. Thank you.

I believe you're familiar with my partner.

Dr. Klintsen! This is a great honor, sir.

You know, I was researching at NASA when you introduced duplicate matter theory.

That was the finding of the decade, sir.

You're a rock star down there.

We are very excited you're here, Will.

Mr. Reynard apologizes that he couldn't be meeting you in person.

Sure. Hi.

I have a lot of questions.

Your people were very good at keeping me in the dark.

Well, these people are in the dark, too.

[ Camera beeps ]

So... A physicist who can fly.

It's no wonder NASA poached you from the Air Force.

It's impressive.

Thank you. Sorry, what's going on?

These NASA assessments claim you have little to no risk aversion, a similar view held by your flight school instructors.

Those assessments are classified.

Wait, is this some kind of a job interview?

'Cause, you know, I appreciate the mystery flights and everything, but I could've saved you all a lot of time and trouble.

I... I am not interested, thank you.

You haven't heard our offer.

I have a number of obligations back in the United States, personal ones.

We are aware of your sister and nephew and your new surrogate father role.

And the surrounding circumstances.

It's very noble of you, Will.

Mr. Reynard respects your position, which is why our generous relocation package includes all three of you.

Donny will have access to world-class private school...

It's a little more complicated than that.

And the finest trauma specialists in all of Europe.

With the compensation we're prepared to offer, your sister would never need to work.

Will, this is not a job offer.

This is the opportunity to explore... impossible frontiers.

Well, I've already been to space, so...

Space is possible.

Then, what are we talking about?

Well, for that, I'm gonna need your signature.

[ Ringing tone]

Hi! You've reached Mia and Donny.

We're not here right now, so please leave a message after the... beep!

[Beep]

Mia, it's Will. Just call me when you get this.

This is Will Porter, mission log three.

I can now confirm that the jump was successful.

My location is the echo. Unprecedented.

This is amazing.

[ Panting ]

[Thunder rumbling]

Echo diagnostics is still loading, currently at 57%.

Answer on gravitational stability forthcoming.

Eight kilometers from the tower.

ETA, just over an hour.

[ Panting ]


What the fuck is going on, man?

Oh, my God. Just get out of here.

Okay, just get to the tower. Just get this done.

You can get out of here and go home, okay?

Oh, crap.

Oh, my God. What the hell is going on?

WOMAN: It was them. There was a lot of shouting.

A lot of confusion.

And then they just starting shooting!

At first, it looked like they were shooting, and they were going after Alterplex guys, but I saw a woman hit just getting out of her car, and I'm pretty sure they had nothing to do with Alterplex.

NEWSCASTER: The leader of the militant environmental group calling themselves the Rebels, put out a statement today justifying their assault on the Alterplex laboratory and tower, accusing the energy plant of endangering the entire planet by turning on its tower a week ago, citing the subsequent destabilization of the system.

Meanwhile, Alterplex, which has been allowed to deploy its own security drones after issuing the controversial Alterplex Security Act, made a joint announcement with the police that the evacuation zone surrounding the tower has been increased to 75 kilometers.

[ Thunder rumbling] [ Gasps ]

[ Gasps ]

[ Rumbling ]

Oh, my God, what the...?

[ Boat crashes ]

Mission log four.

Just had possible visual on a gravitational anomaly.

And the box is still loading.

[Wind rustling]

Approaching anomaly.

Definitely some sort of gravitational portal at the base of the cloud line.

Seems to be active still. Lots of static charge, a tendril or a jet, like a tornado, but ionized.

Moving towards the anomaly now.

Looks like a small... boat?

Numerous deceased birds surrounding the anomaly.

All right.

[Engine humming]

Uh, the boat is mainly intact, so maybe inverse gravity portal is still really active.

It seems to be sucking the atmosphere...

[ Blasting ] Shit! God!

[ Distorted ambient noise ]

Oh, ITTY...

Ow!

Shit.

[ Panting ]

[ Heart beating ]


What are you doing?

[Alarm blaring ]

[Wind rustling]

[ Gunfire]

[ Rebels shouting ]


MAN: Drone down! Drone down!

HUGO: Everybody regroup! Come on!

Who's that guy? What? Where?

Take him out now! Wait, wait, wait.

It's all right. It's okay. Move away from the door!

I'm just trying to find a way...

That's right, hold your hands high.

[ Gunshot] Don't shoot! Don't shoot!

[ Indistinct shouting]


Stop! Stop it!

I know you're in the house! I know you're there!

Give you three seconds!

[Beep]

[ Charge beeping ]

[ Explosion ]

[ Indistinct shouting]

[Gunshot]

[Wind blowing ]

[ Scattered sniping ]

[ Panting ]

Michael?

Will?

Why are you shooting at me?

You want to put that gun down and tell me what the fuck is going on?

What are you doing with these psychos?

You're Alterplex!

You're alive.

That... that's not possible.

Why not? Why not?

What happened?

Michael, talk to me. Tell me what you saw.

Tell me, did something happen to me? Michael?

What the hell is happening here, man?

Wait, wait wait... What the hell is happening?

Put the gun down. Put the gun down.

I'll tell you what's happening, but first, you gotta answer me!

Bullshit.

How did you survive? How did you survive?

[Alarm blaring ]

Shit.

[ Drone whirring ]

Warning, citizen, you are trespassing in a restricted area.

You are violating Alterplex Security Act 7.1.

Stop, or we will engage.

You are trespassing in a restricted area.

Stop, or we will shoot.

I work for Alterplex. My name is Will Porter.

Remain where you are.

We have that name listed as deceased.

Take four steps forward and lay face down, arms and legs spread.

Wait, wait, wait. Let me prove it to you.

Let me prove it to you.

[ Sensor whirring ]

Positive identification. You are under arrest.

Remain where you are. A transport is on its way.

It will escort you to Alterplex Command in a few seconds.

Remain where you are.


[Birds squawking]

[ Rumbling ]


WOMAN: Since the dawn of humankind, we have reached for dreams beyond our grasp.

We gazed at the birds and built planes to fly.

We gazed at the moon and built rockets to reach it.

Throughout history, we have transcended our evolution with technology, pushing through to new frontiers.

Now, Alterplex's visionary CEO, August Reynard, asks you to gaze at the energy challenge we face and once again push through to a new frontier.

After decades of research we are proud to finally unveil the future of energy harnessing and realize our dream for a better tomorrow, powering us for millennia to come.

PA: This is a notification for all Alterplex personnel.

Reminder. Due to the increased violent protests, the emergency security policy will now also include sectors five...

ABBY: Yes! Seven, and ten.

Uh, no, we are not ready at all.

We're still waiting on the diagnostics report.

Well, I'll check on in. I'll check him.

Yeah. Okay.

[ Indistinct PA chatter]

So glad you're here, Will.

I'm sorry, launch logistics clock is ticking.

How are Mia and Donny adjusting?

Well, little up and down, to tell you the truth.

You know, new city and everything.

They have a lot of questions.

And, frankly, I still don't fully understand what I'm doing here myself.

Oh, before we go any further, this is for you.

It's not a gift, I'm afraid.

It's a locator. Keep it on at all times.

Once we're live, you're on call 24/7.

24/7? Exactly. Shall we proceed?

All right. Reminder.

As we close in on our launch date...

Ms. Vos, beautiful day, isn't it?

You must be Will. Michael.

Welcome to Alterplex.

[ Rumbling ]

You can't stay here. Should keep movin'.

Look at what they've done!

WILL: What about what you did, Michael?

We raided the lab.

WILL: What happened to you?

There's a lot of dead people.

You can't be here. There's just no way...

WILL: Why is there no way? You asked me how I survived.

You said it's not possible I'm alive. Why?

I saw you die, Will.

I saw you die.

Come on.

[Chimes]

What is this?


What in hell is really going on down here?

Run it, please.

WOMAN: After the end of fossil fuels, mankind is faced with its greatest challenge yet.

With world energy consumption tripling in the last decade alone, a new form of sustainable energy is needed, a system that outshines solar, wind, and even nuclear energy.

After years of research, we at Alterplex have found the answer to this energy crisis by leveraging the immense hidden power of M-theory, first proposed by Edward Widden in 1995, and enhanced by Peter Klintsen's duplicate matter theory.

M-theory unifies all consistent versions of superstring theory.

By deconstructing space time into a higher number of dimensions, our tower is able to create a mirrored echo of our local universe...

You're copying the entire universe?

Following its symmetry down to every last quantum particle, with one crucial difference:

The echo universe will be devoid of organic compounds.

Instead, it will be a lifeless cosmos, providing a limitless amount of matter that can be transformed into power.

Acting as a dimensional conductor, the tower will create multiple gravity portals which will harvest the echo's mass and convert it into pure electromagnetic energy.

This energy will then be transferred cleanly and safely into our world, powering it for millennia to come.

I had the exact same face.

Parallel universes? An echo universe.

And this here is where you come in.

This is the gate.

It sends you into the echo a safe distance from the tower.

You will be carrying this box.

The box will counterbalance any instabilities that might occur in the echo. Instabilities?

Very simple, though it plugs right into the echo tower.

Someone needs to get it there.

Huh. May I?

And just plug it in?

That's it?

That's it.

There's a terminal at the base of the echo tower.

You jump over, take the box to the tower, plug it in, and jump back in time for dinner.

[ Michael grunts ]

WILL: Michael, nobody was supposed to have been copied, no living thing.

This was supposed to be a sterile world, devoid of carbon life.

I don't know what went wrong.

So you're saying that...

WILL: Hmm?

They've copied the entire world.

Well... kind of. The entire universe.

How's that even possible, man?

WILL: You really don't want to get into that right now, but, effectively, yes. Yes.

So there's two of me.

Possibly.

Of everyone. Well, not everyone.

Not me, anymore, I guess, but I'm here to fix that.

I have to get this to the tower.

Huh...

"Redivider." What does it mean?

I don't know.

They didn't brief me on Redivider.

MICHAEL: What about shit like this, man?

They never briefed you about trains falling out of the fucking sky.

WILL: Listen, the system should've been one way, harvesting energy from the echo, from this universe into the real world, but maybe the echo is fighting back somehow?

It's sucking stuff back?

Heavy objects from the real world...

Maybe it's balancing out what's lost.

Jesus Christ.

No one's going to believe this.

Because no one is gonna know.

What do you mean? Can you imagine the panic?

Look what's happening already. People would freak out.

We have to say something.

No, we don't have to say shit.

Goddamn!

Look, if you really want to end this, you have to help me get the box to the tower.

[Vehicle approaching ]

Shit! Who's this? Michael!

Michael, put the gun down.

Abby. Abby! What the...

Michael, easy. Easy.

This is crazy. They destroyed the lab, Will.

You destroyed the goddamn wor... Shut up!

Shut the fuck up!

We cannot trust her, Will. Don't trust her.

Reynard is waiting with what's left of the team.

We're regrouping. No, no...

The plan failed, Will, badly. I know.

Come with me, and we will fix this.

Abby, no. Abby, I can't.

- Gotta go. You have been identified.

Lie on the ground and place your hands over your head.

Hey, it's me! What the fuck is wrong with you?

I'm bringing him in!

WILL: Go, go, go! Run!

We see you. Lie on the ground and place your hands over your head.

This is your last warning.

[ Gunfire]

Come back! No!

Get in the car! Come on, get in!

Abby, let's go! Come on!

Run! Come on!

[ Object crashing]

Goddamn you!

He's coming in!

Shoot!

Come on!

MICHAEL: Shoot it!

Oh, God, it's damaging the hull!

Are you out? It's out. It's out.

My pack. Use the grenade.

Throw the grenade! Throw the grenade!

[ Screaming ]

Get to that bridge faster. Faster!

Shit!


Unmute.

The disappearance is the latest in a line of recent reports of vehicles gone missing, a bizarre pattern which seems to be linked to abnormal weather behaviors surrounding the sites, according to some experts.

Some skeptics believe the events are linked to the Alterplex Energy tower launch last week.

He wanted to wait up for you.

Yeah, I know. I'm sorry.

We'll get to it this weekend, I promise.

They're giving you weekends off now?

[ Groans, chuckles ]

I think he's a little homesick.

Yeah?

Well, it'll get better.

And I swear I'm gonna do something about all this stuff.

Okay?

You should get out and enjoy the city a bit.

Have you taken him on the canals yet?

We'll be fine, Will.


[Groaning]

[ Grunting ]


[Car door opening]

You Okay?

Bleeding. Shit.

It's fine. It's fine.

You all right?

[Sighs]

We have to bring you to Reynard. He'll know what to do.

Reynard and his team just tried to put us in a coma!

Because you attacked us!

Will? They were aiming at me, Abby.

Why? You're one of us.

WILL: Not anymore, Abby.

Just get me into the tower.

The tower. What are you gonna do without the box?

They destroyed it!

WILL: Just trust me. I can fix this.

He can fix it.

But without Reynard and Alterplex.

Without them!

WILL: We're getting in there, Abby.

I can end this, all right?

He can end it.

Okay.

Will.

[Thunder rumbling]

Hi! You've reached Mia and Donny.

We're not here right now, so please leave a message after the... beep!

[ Beep] Mia, it's me again.

Please call me as soon as you can.

Okay? I love you.

They evacuated.

I made sure of it myself.

Drone patrolling the building.

[ Drone scanner whirs]

Shh.

Fuck.

We have to move out of the open. Go!

[ Drone flying closer]

Shh.

[ Drone scanner whirs]

[ Panting ]

Safe.

Let's go!

[ Indistinct TV chatter]

AUGUST: We are not the military.

We are an energy corporation.

Now, the rebels, they're anarchists!

NEWSCASTER: This statement given by Alterplex CEO August Reynard condemning the environmental group which attacked...

If you find any water, take it.

Viewed as highly controversial.

News reports from the city are hard to verify due to the strictly enforced exclusion zone.

Vehicles seemly appearing out of thin air and dropping from the sky sound like ideas out of science fiction, yet many eyewitnesses have reported these phenomenon.

The authorities are taking these accounts very, very seriously...

Jesus Christ.

WILL: Oh, my God.

Who moved these bodies here?

Oh, God.

MICHAEL: Alterplex. Alterplex Security, for sure.

I've seen similar sites.

At first, we thought it was just a freak thing, but then they kept coming and coming.

After a while, just gave up.

I didn't even know about this one.

Too many bodies. That's when I quit.

WILL: I don't blame you.

[Sighs]

On the other side...

is it like this?

N0, just these vehicles went missing.

That's why Alterplex sent me.

So, it's not...

I'm not...?

Like I said, as far as I know, the other you is alive.

[Sighs]

I don't know. Jesus.

You Okay?

[ Alarm blares] Shit!

MICHAEL: This way, this way!

We got a drone!

He spotted us! Aw, shit!

WILL: Let's get in the plane! Let's go! Come on!

Let's go, let's go! Come on!

Require ground support at grid two.

Require ground support at grid two.

Stay down. Stay down.

[ Garbled radio chatter]

Stand by for final position.

On red and shoot to kill.

Repeat, shoot to kill.

Visual on targets. Engaging.

[Grenade charging]

[ Grunting ]

You okay? Yeah.

Okay. Goddamn.

We have to go.

[ Panting ]

Go. Let's go.

Move! They know where we are.

ABBY: You okay?

We're clear.

Whew!

Goddamn it.

[ Alarm blares] Drone! Drone!

Face the drone and place your weapon on the ground.

Back me up, Will! Back me up!

Shit! I'm out.

Charge your rifle, Will! Fire the charge!

[Whirring ]

Look out!

[ Groans ]

[ Electrical humming]

[ Thunder rumbling] [ Sighs ]

What's it doing?

[ Chuckles ]

It's working.

Hey, Donny, you see that? See that beam of light?

That is pure energy that has been sucked down into the tower.

That's gonna power the whole city here, maybe the whole country.

Sucking it from where?

Well... [ Transponder tone]

Will Porter, you are now on call.

NEWSCASTER: The group's leader, Hugo Romein, in an interview this morning ensured that his movement will be monitoring the situation closely.

Expressing grave concerns about the tower initiation, he went on to vow that his group would take action at the first sign of trouble, although he did not say what form that action would take.

[ Beeping ]

[ Abby, distorted ] Will...

Will, listen, stay with me.

Stay with me. Shit...

We've gotta pull it out, okay?

Abby, we pull it out.

The blood'll be worse.

One, two...

Stop, stop. He'll bleed to death if you pull it out.

You think that you can walk?

There's no way he'll make it to the tower.

We need to get him real help.

Will, Will, Will, stay with us.

Wait, wait, wait. Wait, I know a place.

It's just a few blocks from here.

A place?

[ Heavy door opening ]

No, no, no, it's me. It's Michael.

I got an injured man here.

Carry him.

ABBY: You brought us here?

I had no choice.

Okay?

He's bleeding to death.

Weapons down, please.

Weapons down, come on!

His name's Will. Where's Hugo?

Will.

Come on, all your weapons down.

Where's Hugo?

HUGO: That's not my problem.

I'd tell you, but we need the medic before he bleeds out.

I'm telling you, Hugo! Okay.

Come on, leave her alone.

Don't you fucking touch me.

Shit... She's unarmed.

Okay. Take them inside.

Clear the table, come on!

Sit down, Will.

Look out for your leg. Up!

Please be careful with him. We need him.

Is the muscle damaged?

Give him a shot of propofol and IV floxacillin.

Okay.

Fixate his leg. Okay, now, gently.

One, two...

[Will screams muffled ]

Yeah, it's not working.

We need to apply side pressure.

Okay, try it again.

WILL: Oh...

[ Screams ]

Shit. Oh, it's out. Okay.

Try to relax, bro. Try to relax.

Hand me the scissors? Trust me, you're gonna be okay.

I'll prepare the leg, make sure he doesn't lose too much blood.

Yep, prepare the leg.

On my count.

Gauze. Nurse, gauze, please.

[Whirring ]

Couple of minutes, you'll be as good as new.


HUGO: Who will stand up for her?

Who speaks for Earth when multinationals exploit her resources for profit?

Who speaks for our planet when...

Mia? Rape her while pulling the wool over everyone's eyes?

Mia, what are you watching this for?

Mia, what's the matter? [ Sniffling]

Nothing, I'm... I'm fine. I'm sorry.

Donny wrote this today.

Are the kids still teasing him at school?

It's not the teasing, Will.

It's this whole place, this situation, these things that are happening.

[Sighs]

You've been so good to us, and you don't owe us anything, and I think maybe it's time that...

No.

Come on.

I don't want Donny and I to stand in the way of something that's so important to you.

Mia, if he misses home, we'll go back on a trip.

[Sighs]

Let me go talk to him, okay?

[ Knocking ]

[Thunder rumbling]

[Sighs]

[Will groans]

Hey! What happ... what?

How long have I been out?

Who are you?

N0, we have to... we don't have a lot of time.

[ Panting, stuttering ]

[ Smack ]

Hey. Whoa, easy.

Who are you?

You have to let us go.

We need to get out of here right now.

You work for Alterplex, just like her?

You need to let us go now.

Tell him.

Tell him. Yeah, tell me.

Who do you work for? What? Come on, Michael.

Tell him. Michael. Michael, come on.

We need to go. We need to get out of here.

Who is this guy?

What are you doing?

N0, no, no. Don't. What are you do...?

Are you listening to me? We have to go!

We have to get that thing to the tower!

Redivider?

What is this?

That's impossible.

What is not possible?

What is this? Come on.

You bring these people in here, and you can't explain what this is?

Hugo, he told me he could help.

Did you sell us out, Mike? No, I swear.

Did you sell us out? No, I didn't.

Trust me, I know what I'm doing.

WILL: Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa! MICHAEL: They can help.

Hugo, trust me. HUGO: They can help?

Help bring us this tracking device here?

Help us all get killed?

What is this?

[ Explosion ]

MAN: Shit!

[ Hugo screams ]

Where's the box?

[ Rapid gunfire] [Yelling ]

WILL: Michael, come on. We gotta get out of here.

Let's go, go, go, go, go!

Come on, guys, move! Move!

Move! Move! Come on, this way.

WILL: Michael, let's go. Let's get the fuck out of here!

MICHAEL: I don't believe they won't believe me.

WILL: Abby, come on!

[Gunshot]

Let's go. 90. 90!

Come on, move in! Michael.

"DRONE". Attention, you're harboring a wanted individual.

You are in breach of the active Alterplex security order.

[ Sighs ] Shit.

Stay down, stay down. Okay.

Yeah. Let's go.

Go, go, go, go, go! Abby, come on.

Clear!

This way!

Abby. Abby! I couldn't tell you about the box.

I know an escape tunnel nearby!

[ Shatters ]

Shit. Let's go! Come on!

Drone left!

Give me the box, Will.

MICHAEL: Gotta move! We gotta move, come on!

Why are you standing there? Come on! Come on!

We gotta go down. Come on in, quick.

WILL: Abby. Abby! What was I supposed to do?

Abby, what was I supposed to do?

I couldn't tell you about the box once I knew I was in the echo.

You weren't even supposed to be here!

Nobody was supposed to be alive here. Stop!

No, you stop. Redivider...

What is Redivider?

Huh? What is it?

You sent me here. You sent me here.

Now, you tell me what is Redivider.

It's a classified protocol, a last resort.

When restoring balance is impossible...

the box disables one side altogether.

It destroys the tower.

And this universe.

There's only one option left.

Redivider aborts one universe to ensure the other survives.

Jesus Christ.

This thing is a goddamn kill switch.


[ Knocking ]

Hey, bud.


I got your note.

And I miss home, too.

Truth is, Don...

I don't even really know where home is anymore.

[Transponder beeps ]

Will Porter, please call in as soon as possible.

[Sighs]

You know, Donny, there are a lot of very important, very smart people in these towers.

And they wanted Uncle Will to move halfway across the world...

Move our home halfway across the world... to be part of a very special project.

It's something that could help a lot of people, you know?

Maybe even change the world.

And I thought maybe I could help you and your mom, too.

That's a big responsibility.

It's maybe the biggest responsibility of my life.

[Transponder beeps ]

Will Porter, please call in as soon as possible.

Really?

For me?

Thanks, man.

[Thunder rumbling]

So, you sent me on a suicide mission?

I am tired of being fucked around, Abby.

I am done!

Where did my family go, huh? Where are they, Abby?

Will, where are you going? [ Rumbling ]

Oh, shit! What's happening?

[ Loud bangs ]

ABBY: Where are you going?

You said they evacuated, right?

Donny, my sister, they evacuated.

Will, this is a bad idea.

I am too close to home.

ABBY: No, you're not thinking clearly.

This is a bad idea.

[ Objects clang ] MICHAEL: It's getting worse.

[Wind blowing ]

Oh, my God. Oh, my God!

It's... it's like it's coming apart at the seams! What the...?

[Hull creaking]

Holy shit! I gotta get to them!

Don't go!

Please stay with us.

Get out of my way!

No, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Oh, my God. Mia!

Mia! Donny!

I should never have dragged you guys here.

[Sighs]

I am done.

Done? Yeah.

I've been so selfish.

[ Ringing tone]

[ Phone ringing ]

We're gonna get through this.

I don't wanna just get through this, Mia.

You and Donny deserve way better.

Please, I didn't mean for this to become a big thing.

Mia, it's a huge deal.

You're my sister, and I promised to look after you.

I... I...

I don't feel like I've done a very good job.

We're going home, all of us.

Are you sure?

First thing in the morning.

I'm gonna quit and... we'll get on the first plane out of here, okay?

Thank you.


What kind of person are you?

You said they evacuated.

You said you made sure of it yourself.

You lied to me.

[Transponder beeps ]

What's that? What's it doing?

I'm sorry.

Wait here.

[Alarm blares ]

MICHAEL: Shit!

[Whirring ]

What the hell's going on?

Critical failure of protocol! You're going in!

Will!

I guess that resignation'll have to wait. I'm sorry.

Where are they taking you?

Porter, you have to go now!

Will!

Will!

[ Groans ]

Traitor.

We got Porter.

KLINTSEN: What about the box? Is it safe?

[Will groans]

Yeah, it's safe.

Good. Good.

Don't let it out of your sight.

What should I do with him?

Just like we discussed.

COPY-

[ Thud ]


Take him up front.

[Whirring ]


Hello, Will.

Whatever he says, don't listen to him.

[ Indistinct radio chatter]

Don't trust him.

Jordan, let's go.

[ Engines revving]

It's an interesting...

strange...

beautiful paradox.

Those two worlds conjoined like twins... just from the womb.

We have to sacrifice one... so the other may endure.

WILL: You're going to sacrifice the original universe.

You're destroying my world so you can live?

Fuck you.

We need your help, Will.

There is still time.

Time for what?

You think I'd actually help you?

With everything I know now?

I know.

This is a difficult decision.

Difficult? Difficult?!

Killing my family is difficult?

That's why going back is the only solution.

You can see them again.

You're the only one who can pilot the jump.

There is no third option.

If we remain here in this stalemate, both worlds soon cease to exist.

We have to sacrifice one to save the other.

Yes. Yes, Mr. Porter, your family will die.

I'm only offering you the opportunity to be there.

Hold their hands in the end.

One must be sacrificed so the other can live.

WILL: That works for me.

Michael, hold on to something now!

[ Beeping ]

[ Cracking ]

[Warning beeps]

[ Crashing ]

[ Muffled ambient noise ]


[Tires squealing]


There.

[ Michael groaning ]

What happened?

Where is Porter? [ Groans]

Where is the box?

Where is the box?

MICHAEL: Shoot me. Shoot me.

[ Gunshots]

[ Grunting ]

[ Grunting ]

[Will groaning]

[ Metallic thud]

[ Michael panting ]


Take this. We gotta move.

You know what I need to do, right?

Exactly what you've gotta do.

You know what this means?

Kill switch. That's okay.

I need to right some wrongs, anyway.

[ Gunfire]

[ Bullets ricochet ]

He's still shooting!

Drive! Drive!

Hold on!

Michael, you okay?

Oh, shit, I'm hit! I'm hit!

Stop the car.

Here, you take the wheel.

Let's go.

Let's go! Move!


MICHAEL: Will! Will, are you okay?

Will?

Shit!

Shit, drones!

Shoot!

Will, shoot the nose. Shoot the nose!

Shoot the nose!

It controls the other drones. Come on, Will!


Look, we're almost there.

[Thunder rumbling]

[ Electrical rumbling]

[Wind blowing ]

Oh, shit!

You get to the tower, Will, and you end this!

You end this, Will!

[Wind blowing ]

[ Heart beating ]


WILL: Truth is, Donny, they wanted Uncle Will to be part of a very special project.

It's something that could help a lot of people, you know?

Maybe even change the world.

And I thought maybe I could help you and your mom, too.

That's a big responsibility.

It's maybe the biggest responsibility of my life.

MIA: I don't want Donny and I to stand in the way of something that's so important to you.

WILL: I've been so selfish.

MIA: You've been so good to us, and you don't owe us anything, and I think maybe it's time...

WILL: If he misses home, we'll go back on a trip.


You're my sister, and I promised to look after you...

I don't fee! Like I've done a very good job.

We're going home, all of us.

I promise I can fix this.

[Gunshot]

[ Distorted ambient noise ]

I can't let you do it, Will, I'm sorry.

I can't let you destroy this world.

WILL: This world is already dying.

This cannot be the end.

Do you realize what you're doing?

WILL: Yes. I'm keeping a promise.

[ Buzzing lowers in pitch ]

[ Clicking ]

[ Rumbling ]

[ Buzzing rises in pitch ]

ABBY: Shit.

What the fuck.

You've killed us all!

Son of a bitch!

[Gunshot]
