Antonio Banderas’ new movie, Automata, opens in October, but a teaser trailer was released this week. Here’s the synopsis from IMDb:
“Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation, routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.”
Excuse me for asking, but isn’t that just about the same story told in Will Smith’s 2004 film, I, Robot? Here’s that movies synopsis from IMDb:
“In 2035 a technophobic cop investigates a crime that may have been perpetrated by a robot, which leads to a larger threat to humanity.”
I’m sorry, they’re different. Antonio’s an insurance agent. Will was a cop. Plus, Automata is set in 2044.
What was I thinking? Check out the trailers for both films – see what you think…
