The Creator — Official Teaser
The synopsis for The Creator illuminates more of the plot we see in this trailer. Apparently, the movie is about the following:
Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua (John David Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Gemma Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.
I’m getting The Golden Child meets The Matrix with a dash of A.I. Artificial Intelligence vibes set in a science-fictional future. So, somewhat original. This movie looks cinematic while still retaining the necessary amount of heart. At least, that’s what I’m getting from the teaser.
I suspect AI will be the bad guy in science fiction movies coming out over the next few years. Skynet… here we come. HAL says hello.
However, I would like to point out that I am tired of the remixing of classic rock songs for the trailer trope. I’m over it.
