“For almost as long as there have been ‘Jumpers’ there have been those that hunt them.” Tune in to RT on Wednesday for the exclusive premiere of the sci-fi thriller Jumper, starring Hayden Christensen and Samuel L. Jackson!

Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) is directing the upcoming Fox sci-fi actioner, which is adapted from Stephen Gould’s novel and the first in a film trilogy. Hayden Christensen stars as David, a teenager who discovers he has the ability to teleport, or “Jump,” and becomes involved in a longstanding war between Jumpers and a secret society committed to hunting them down.

From the Jumper official site:

“For almost as long as there have been “Jumpers” there have been those that hunt them. These people are called Paladins — an ancient sect that has long recognized the threat that Jumpers pose to the world, the Paladins have evolved into an elite organization of warrior-like individuals who find and kill Jumpers around the globe.

Over the years, the Paladins have cultivated a special skill — the ability to sense when a Jumper is about to Jump in the vicinity. This heightened awareness gives the Paladins a much needed tool to use when battling the Jumpers. Today, Paladins are so good at killing Jumpers that few make it to adulthood. When Jumpers start Jumping around age 5, their youth and inexperience makes it easy for Paladins to track them.”

Playing the leader of the Paladins is Samuel L. Jackson, whose character (as you can see here) is equipped with special Jumper-catching weapons.

More on the Paladin weapons:

“Over time, the Paladins have also created special weapons that help in the capture and extermination of Jumpers. Primary among these are tether weapons, which are shot out of a special kind of gun. The tethers have the ability to harness Jumpers and an electrical charge running through the tethers prevents the Jumper from jumping while the Paladin moves in for the kill. Paladins also use special electrified nets to contain Jumpers.”

As he learns more about his powers, David (Christensen) meets other Jumpers, like fellow teenager Griffin (Jamie Bell), a veteran Jumper who’s been fighting the Paladins for a while. Jumper also stars Rachel Bilson as Millie, David’s childhood friend, and Diane Lane as David’s mother, who abandoned him as a child. The script is adapted by Jim Uhls (Fight Club), Simon Kinberg (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), and David S. Goyer (Batman Begins).

Jumper teleports into theaters February 15, 2008.
