Antonio Banderas Sci-Fi ‘Automata’ Gets A Trailer, Posters

Automata Header Image

A trailer and a pair of posters have been released for Automata, an upcoming sci-fi flick starring Antonio Banderas.

The movie is set in the year 2044, at a time when the robots we’ve created have evolved past set protocols—never harm any life form, never alter itself or others—to a point where they’re at the same level of intelligence as humans, and a takeover as the dominant life form on the planet is unfolding. It centers on an insurance agent accident investigator (Banderas) who finds himself caught in the middle of this conflict between human intelligence and artificial intelligence.

While the idea of robots rising up and taking out humans is nothing new, Automata looks pretty darn awesome, like Blade Runner fusing together with a Neill Blomkamp movie, and should appeal greatly to sci-fi fans. You can see the two posters and watch the trailer below.

Movie Review: Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus Has FallenOlympus Has Fallen
Director: Antoine Fuqua
Screenwriter: Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt
Cast: Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Melissa Leo, Ashley Judd
Millennium Films
Rated R | 120 Minutes
Release Date: March 22, 2013

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), Olympus Has Fallen stars Gerard Butler (300) as former U.S. Army Ranger Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent assigned to Presidential Detail.

After a tragic accident, Banning is demoted and re-assigned to a desk job in Washington. When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a North Korean terrorist and President Asher (Aaron Eckhart) is held captive, House Speaker and Acting President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) is forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert a nuclear crisis.

Written by Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, Olympus Has Fallen is a Tea Party recruitment video disguised as an action-packed Movie For Guys Who Like Movies. It’s the cinematic equivalent of a Freedom Ain’t Free bumper sticker – a shameless, disgusting movie that uses 9/11 imagery to promote xenophobia.

In the film, President Asher meets with the Foreign Minister of South Korea to discuss the ever-present threat of North Korea. Unbelievably, North Korean terrorist Kang Yeonsaka (Rick Yune) has disguised himself as a South Korean ministerial aide and infiltrates the meeting, murdering the Prime Minister and taking the President hostage.

Movie Review: The Campaign

The Campaign PosterThe Campaign
Directed by Jay Roach
Written by Chris Henchy, Shawn Harwell
Starring Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 85 Minutes
Release Date: August 10, 2012

Written by Eastbound & Down‘s Shawn Harwell and Chris Henchy (The Other Guys), The Campaign is a delightful concoction of political commentary and buffoonish man-child shenanigans. The film, which follows two rival politicians who are trying to win an election, is the perfect project for director Jay Roach.

Roach, whose comedic film credits include Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and Meet the Parents, has also directed HBO political dramas like Recount, which earned him two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Made for Television Movie, and Game Change about the 2008 McCain/Palin campaign, one of the most watched films in HBO history.

In The Campaign, long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) is caught with his pants down before an upcoming election, entangled in an embarrassing, John Edwards-esque sex scandal that could potentially ruin his career. Cue a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs (John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd) who plot to manipulate a dummy candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district so they can building sweatshops and ‘insource’ low-wage Chinese workers to double profits.

American Horror Story (2011)

American Horror Story
Season 1, Episode 1 – Pilot
Directed by Ryan Murphy
Written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk
Starring Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare
FX
Air Date: Wednesday, October 5, 2011 10pm

American Horror Story, the new series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, seems to be heading in a potentially interesting direction if the pilot episode is anything to go by. But I won’t be going along with them.

First off I’m not exactly the biggest fan of Murphy (whose other crimes against pop culture include creating Nip/Tuck and writing and directing Eat, Pray, Love) or any members of the American Horror Story cast, including Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton (although she was good on Spin City and Friday Night Lights), and Jessica Lange. It’s a mixed bag of overrated talent that grates my nerves whenever any of them are on screen and it doesn’t help the actors that the characters they play are unsympathetic and the material dull and pretentious. By the way, this is supposed to be a haunted house story.

American Horror Story

If there is one thing that this Fall is going to be, it’s going to be chock full of scares, particularly in the world of television. With the likes of The Walking Dead returning, the biggest player this season may in fact be a newcomer, from a storied name in TV.

Created by Glee‘s Ryan Murphy, American Horror Story stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, and Jessica Lange, and has been slowly building anticipation through cryptic teasers and even more cryptic viral marketing (like the bloody wedding cake delivered here to Doom HQ). The show features an awesome cast, so it has to be great, right? Well, if these five minutes are to be believed, then that statement is true.
