Millennium Entertainment just unveiled the official trailer for its upcoming "Automata" sci-fi film, starring Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott, and Robert Forster. Check it out below.
Plot: Set 50 years in the future, the story follows Jacq Vaucan (Banderas), an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation who routinely investigates cases of manipulating robots. 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.
The new movie is directed by Spanish helmer Gabe Ibanez (Hierro) and is set to be released on VOD and in select theaters on October 10th.

Throwing robots into a movie is a cheap way to make science fiction, and from what I can tell there doesn't seem to much of a humanistic message as is the case with the best science fiction films. I also don't care for Banderas as the lead because his accent is annoying and he has little range.

Cool CGI, bad acting, sill corruption of Asimov's three laws of robotics, but I'll say this: it's no worse than Will Smith's I, Robot, although I could have without the exploding car chase.

You hate his accent. Women I love it ...

You're over analyzing a bit there mink. It looks decent enough to be comparable to Edge of Tomorrow and Elysium and Oblivion.

So, it's basically Mexican/spanish version of iRobot.

irobot meets elysium.

This all looks fairly derivative of various sci-fi movies from roughly the past decade, but it also looks technically well put together and, at least from the trailer, not as left-winger obnoxious as that Elysium bullsh*t.
I also like Banderas and think he makes for an interesting lead, simply by virtue of being Banderas (The 13th Warrior f*cked your mothers) but holly God does Melanie Griffith look like a robot herself with rubber skin stretched over its face.
