Antonio Banderas investigates robots in this trailer for Automata

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

For those of you who enjoyed seeing Antonio Banderas back on the big screen in EXPENDABLES 3, you’ll get to check him out again in just a few months in the Sci-Fi/Thriller AUTOMATA. In the film, Banderas will portray Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation who investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity . . . and his hair.

This film looks like an interesting cross between BLADE RUNNER and I, ROBOT. I think the practical effects used for the robots lend the film a lot more weight than that of I, ROBOT, although whatever looks and charm Melanie Griffith had are long gone. Yeesh.

AUTOMATA will see a limited theatrical release on October 10, 2014.
