‘Automata’ – Trailer looks awesome

Have you heard about this movie named ‘Automata’? At least, until yesterday I had not heard about this but now after watching its trailer, I can only wait for October 10th when the film is finally going to be released.

Another interesting thing is that it stars one of my favourite actors Antonio Banderas. Automata is set in the near future, precisely the year 2044. While it may look like another robot movie, it seems very interesting with some kind of twisting around in Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics.

In the trailer itself, you will be introduced with those laws. Nevertheless, in most of the science fiction films, many a times, promising and relatively genuine ideas somehow get lost on the screen. This film might be a bit different considering those three laws and our possible imagination and futuristic vision beyond those.   

Automata is a sci-fi film that attempts to explore the potential dangers and complexities when mind and machine merge. As rightly explained here Spanish Writer/Director Gabe Ibanez was driven to tell a story that blurs the lines between science fiction and reality.


Fast forward fifty years into the future, planet earth is in the midst of gradual desertification. Mankind struggles to survive as the environment deteriorates and the slow regression of the human race begins in AUTOMATA. On the brink of life and the reality of death, technology combats the prevailing uncertainty and fear with the creation of the first quantum android, the Automata Pilgrim 7000. Designed to bring support to society’s plight, man and robot reveal what it means to co-exist in a culture defined by human nature. 

The descent of civilization is juxtaposed by the rise of ROC, the corporation at the helm of robotic intelligence. Despite the demise of humanity, the company has set forth security protocols to ensure mankind always maintains control over the manufactured population. As ROC insurance agent, Jacq Vaucan (Antonio Banderas) routinely investigates cases and complaints surrounding defective androids, he begins to uncover the secrets behind who is really manipulating the Automata Pilgrim 7000. Jacq’s own suspicions propel the mystery— uncovering a truth that is far more complex than the make or model of any machine.
