The very first trailer for Saw and Insidious architect Leigh Whannell‘s anticipated new sci-fi thriller Upgrade has emerged.

Starring Logan Marshall-Green, Rosco Campbell and Richard Cawthorne, Upgrade revolves around the story of a “technophobe” who aims to avenge his wife’s murder and cure his own paralysis with an experimental, dangerous computer chip implant known as STEM.

“I just had an idea about a computer that was controlling a human, puppeteering them but the human was still in there and was involuntarily having to do these things,” Whannell previously told Deadline, explaining the back-story and inspirations behind his latest project. “It took a while to develop the story and each beat of the story to get it where it was but as I was doing that I was reading a lot about the singularity and the fact that computers being a part of our bodies is right around the corner. So it’s started becoming more and more interesting to me and I started becoming more obsessed with it.”

You can check out the lead trailer for Upgrade above. The film is set to hit theaters on June 1.
