The debut trailer for forthcoming dystopian sci-fi movie Automata was just launched on YouTube. Set in the near future, it depicts a world in which humans and robots live alongside each other, with robots governed by a set of core protocols that dictate the limits of their behavior – until, at least, they go wrong. If that all sounds a little I, Robot, that’s because, well, it is – perhaps with a sprinkling of Blade Runner and a dash of A.I. thrown in for good measure. Still, with Antonio Banderas in the Will Smith role things are already looking more promising, and given that the movie was produced by independent studio Green Moon (their first ever film) we’re hoping it will offer a fresh take on the themes first penned by Isaac Asimov some 70 years ago. The film hits theaters later this year.
