Let’s face it; only a god-like human could successfully take part in a Robopocalypse. Or at the very least an actor who knows how to play someone who’s god-like. Read on for the heavy hammered latest on Steven Spielberg’s new film!
According to Deadline, Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman) will be working with Spielberg on his next helming effort, Robopocalypse, the big techno-thriller which is sure to become the director’s next big global popcorn film. The Disney-Fox-DreamWorks actioner is releasing worldwide on April 25, 2014
Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) penned the adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s epic novel about the human race’s attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising. Disney will release domestically, and Fox will distribute the film overseas.
Roughly twenty years from now, our technological marvels unite and turn against us. A childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online…and kills the man who created it. This first act of betrayal leads Archos to gain control over the global network of machines and technology that regulates everything from transportation to utilities, defense, and communications. In the early months, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans – from a senator and single mother disconcerted by her daughter’s “smart” toys to a lonely Japanese bachelor to an isolated U.S. soldier – but most are unaware of the growing rebellion until it is far too late. Then, in the span of minutes, at a moment known later in history as Zero Hour, every mechanical device in our world rebels, setting off the Robot War that both decimates and – for the first time in history – unites humankind.
