The upcoming sci-fi thriller MORGAN is like a younger-skewing EX MACHINA, so the producers decided that their newest trailer should be designed by someone tuned into that kind of storyline: an actual IBM AI. The scientists used experimental Watson APIs to analyze hundreds of horror movie trailers, assessing what kind of shots scare people the most and then using that information to pick out ten of the scariest scenes from MORGAN itself.

Is it just me, or does teaching computers what scares us not seem like such a great idea? I'm getting definite Skynet vibes here. But you can see how far that technology has progressed by checking out the trailer below and seeing if it freaks you out!

Directed by Ridley's son Luke Scott from a screenplay by Seth Owen, MORGAN centers on :

a corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) who is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.

MORGAN also stars Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The film is set to reach theatres on September 2nd.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think computers could really understand what scares us?
