Welp. This is how it starts, isn’t it? First the machines do our bidding, then they learn to repair themselves, then they’re repairing each other, and before you know it, they’re trying to squash us like bugs. That may or may not be what’s in store for the humans of Gabe Ibáñez’s “Automata,” but are you really willing to take that chance? I say kill all the robots now and save ourselves!!!!
Ahem. Check out the first trailer for “Automata,” which is apparently directed by the very “visionary” Gabe Ibáñez. Remember the days when publicists didn’t call every director to come down the pipe “visionary”? Oh, those modest good ol days.
An insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.
Starring Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, and Robert Forster.
The robots rise in theaters and OnDemand this October 10th.
