TRAILER: “HENRi” – a Film Where Dave Bowman Voices the AI

HENRi is a crowdfunded film by Eli Sasich about a derelict spaceship that becomes self-aware and builds itself a mechanical body in order to feel alive. A cool premise that’s been done before, sure, but the director openly cites “his love for the sci-fi films of the ’70s and ’80s, as well as the classic novels of Philip K. Dick and Isaac Asimov” for inspiration.

of meta-interest to SciFi fans is that it stars Supermans Margot Kidder and, as the voice of the AI, Keir Dullea, who played Dr. David Bowman in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  1. That looks and sounds promising.

  2. Wow, the atmosphere and emotion here are amazing. Sometimes I don’t care if I’ve seen or read it before if it’s done again really well.
