Giant robots from another galaxy arrive on Earth with more on their minds than disguising themselves as our vehicles and rocking out to Linkin Park. Can Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson save us from Robot Overlords?
Grabbers director Jon Wright and writer Mark Stay are the overlords behind this new sci-fi action adventure thriller from the UK’s Embankment Films that sees the world as we know it enslaved by colossal machines from outer space.
Oscar winner Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson (“Hannibal,” “The X-Files”) appear to be leading the adult resistance against intergalactic tyranny, but from the looks and sounds of this one, Robot Overlords seems to be aimed at more of a teen audience.
Callan McAuliffe (The Great Gatsby) and Ella Hunt are the two younger heroes adorning the quite impressive poster art.
Earth has been conquered by robots from a distant galaxy; survivors are confined to their houses and must wear electronic implants, risking incineration by robot sentries if they venture outside.
In robot-occupied Britain, city centres are devastated and a gang of teenagers live in a seaside town constantly under robot threat. Intimidating sentries patrol the streets; snipers are merciless death machines. The Mediator is deceptively childlike but unnervingly coercive. The robot base is The Cube, a massive mother-ship that dominates the horizon.
And I for one welcome our new robot overlords. I’d like to remind them that as a trusted internet personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.
