TRAILER: Automata

I, for one, welcome our robot overlords.

Well, I would if they the were the ones shown in the new trailer for Automata, an upcoming film starring Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott and Robert Forster. (And especially if any of them were voiced by Javier Bardem, like one is in the film.)

The trailer indicates that the film’s robots adhere to their own version of Asimov’s Laws of Robotics. Hopefully this makes for a more interesting story. Even so, this is a movie I’d like to see.

  1. Alas, the uploader has not made the trailer available to the UK. What an odd thing to do.

  2. Apart from cinematic convenience, why on earth should AI’s be put in human-shaped bodies?

    And why should it be seen as “bad” that the AI’s are considered dangerous? True AI’s actually -would- be dangerous.

    Hell, other human beings are dangerous.
