Headed our way this weekend is the Luke Scott-directed and Ridley Scott-produced Morgan, and 20th Century Fox has decided to whet our collective appetite by literally tasking an AI device with creating a new trailer for the psychological thriller. Technology, man. It continues to blow our minds wide open.
“Utilizing experimental Watson APIs and machine learning techniques, the IBM Research system analyzed hundreds of horror/thriller movie trailers,” they told us. “After learning what keeps audiences on the edge of their seats, the AI system suggested the top 10 best candidate moments for a trailer from the movie Morgan, which an IBM filmmaker then edited and arranged together.”
Check out the high-tech trailer below!
Based on a script by Seth W. Owen, Morgan stars Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Toby Jones, and Paul Giamatti.
Ridley Scott produced alongside Michael Schaefer and Mark Huffam.
A corporate troubleshooter (Mara) 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.
