Stop Everything And Watch This Trailer for Android Flick The Machine


I was lucky enough to see The Machine at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and with only one month left to go I still count it as one of my favorite films of 2013. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that director Caradog W. James was heavily inspired by Blade Runner to craft his sci-fi flick about the intersection of science and humanity. Arrow fans: That’s Caity Lotz, who plays Black Canary, as the main android.

    Looks spectacular; I wonder if the deliberately light, washed out look is a conscious reaction to the noir of Blade Runner? Anyhow, nice to see my distinguished relative, Wedge Antilles, getting plenty of work.

    Not gonna lie, as an inveterate Rogue Squadron fangirl I FREAKED OUT when Denis Lawson’s name showed up in the opening credits. And then, as a bonus, the movie was amazing.

    Well, this looks right up my alley. Fiction involving synthetic personhood is important to me.

    …and another awesome, easy to make cosplay for me :)

    Visuals look stunning. A bit worried by the robo cliches (“Let go of my arm!” and catching a knife before it hits your eyeball…). Love the Tron Legacy-esque music in the trailer though!

    See…this is what I want SHIELD to be like…

    But hot DAMN, this looks awesome!! Interesting that they made the AI feminine; she looks intense. VERY, very cool.

    But wait, isn’t Caity Lotz lisping? I guess they made her robot from the same factory as Arnolds terminator.
