In an internet full of movie trailers, it takes a very special kind of movie to stand out. While the idea behind the Automata seems recycled (that is wordplay because we are talking about robots), it wont take long for you to realize that this movie seems to be doing something most sci-fi doesn't get right. A mix between the fantastic and the believable. Granted, some may think it is just another "I-Robot" type of movie, there seems to be a lot more here than just shiny action going on here. It looks like Automata is, essentially, science fiction done right.
Yes, it seems the typical "we build smart robots to help us only to have them evolve beyond what we expected" storyline, but its visual look (think classic Ridley Scott) mixed with the old-school design of the robots has got my interest piqued about this one.
While it may not have Nic Cage in it (< sarcasm font), it still looks like a science fiction film geeks may want to keep their eyes peeled for. Set to be released in October, expect to be hearing more about this movie the closer we get to its release date.
