Spanish filmmaker Gabe Ibanez has dropped the first trailer for his upcoming sci-fi movie Automata, which stars Antonio Banderas, and it looks pretty awesome.
Banderas stars as an insurance agent living in the year 2044, where robots are now a common sight. To keep these metallic slaves under our control, there’s a law that expressly forbids them from modifying themselves – but nothing, it seems, can stop the rise of artificial intelligence.
The robots themselves seem to have a gritty, rigid feel to them, reminiscent of Neil Blomkamp’s robotic characters in District 9 and Elysium.
Check out the trailer below:
