Hard core sci-fi always seems to be few and far in theatres these days. But this year we’ve had a few gems, between EDGE OF TOMORROW, SNOWPIERCER, and, yea, I’ll even put GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY in the bucket of “hardcore sci-fi”, and thankfully this trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down with the release of AUTOMATA this October!
Check out the trailer after the jump.
AUTOMATA is directed by Spanish filmmaker Gabe Ibáñez (Hierro), 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.
This one should hit theatres on October 10th.
