After watching the trailer for Automata I had the same feeling I had when watching the trailer for District 9 years ago; awesome! It just has that feel to it that it can be a truly special Sci-Fi movie and I for one really hope so. Some people familiar with The Animatrix might find some similar parallels in this trailer. However lets not let the story similarities take away from how beautifully shot this film looks and the robots not only looking real but having a seemingly interesting storyline behind them.
The story for Automata goes like this: 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.Automata Directed by Gabe Ibanez Written by Gabe Ibanez, Igor Legarreta and Javier Sanchez Donate Starring Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott, Tim McInnerny, Andy Nyman and Robert Forster Release: October 10, 2014
