Watch: Antonio Banderas Gets Gritty in First 'Automata' Sci-Fi Trailer
"If you want to survive, you must stay with us." Just recently, we highlighted two teaser posters for an upcoming sci-fi flick called Automata, starring Antonio Banderas. Now the first trailer has arrived, and it definitely has our attention. It seems like a mix of Isaac Asimov's I, Robot mixed with Blade Runner and a hint of District 9. It's gritty, with practical robots, and some impressive visuals for such a low profile sci-fi project. Of course, the question is whether or not the big ideas teased in the trailer are effectively transferred to the big screen, unlike the Will Smith attempt to adapt Asimov's classic work. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Gabe Ibáñez's Automata, originally from Yahoo:
Automata is directed by Spanish filmmaker Gabe Ibáñez (Hierro) from a script he wrote with Igor Legarreta and Javier Sánchez Donate. The film, set 50 years in the future, follows Antonio Banderas as Jacq Vaucan, 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 as he uncovers a truth that is far more complex than the make or model of any machine. Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott, and Robert Forster also star in the film which hits VOD and limited theaters this fall on October 10th. Interested?
