AI has been in the news a lot lately – so kudos to the PR department at 20th Century Studios for their timing – and while THE CREATOR certainly appears to be more Sci-Fi than horror – we all know that the two genres can easily share the same bed – and it looks like director Gareth Edwards is more than comfortable making that bed.
The storyline breaks down as follows:
“Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua (Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.”
Pretty much sums up the trailer as well – have a look.
John David Washington, Gemma Chan, Ken Watanabe, Sturgill Simpson, Madeleine Yuna Voyles and Allison Janney.
In case you weren’t paying attention above – Sept. 29th is when this hits theaters.
