Nowadays, AI has become more present than ever – AI-generated art, storylines designed for fun (for now), acting performances, and more. In the next feature from 20th Century Studios The creator, AI takes on an even more dangerous form: a technology fully capable of waging war on humanity. So it’s up to one man (John David Washington), to find the mind behind the AI. Ahead of the film’s September 29 release, 20th Century Studios released the first trailer.
The trailer opens onto a vast space surrounded by water and futuristic-type buildings. A young child asks Washington’s character, Joshua, about heaven and if Joshua will ever go there. His response, “it’s a peaceful place in the sky”, stands in stark contrast to a raging war, with explosions, gunfire and an intense rendition of Aerosmith“Dream On”. As the trailer continues, it reveals that humanity has been at war with the AI for a decade and there are no signs of it slowing down. Eventually, however, Joshua finds a significant weapon, sending him into a crisis of conscience. While said weapon is an AI, it looks like the film will also ask the question of just how capable the AI is of humanity – and whether it should be destroyed.
As the trailer shows, The creator largely focuses on Joshua, a former Special Forces agent who mourns his wife (Gemma Chan) gone. In the midst of his grief, Joshua is recruited to track down the elusive mind behind the advanced AI, known only as “The Creator”. But The Creator not only created the technology for war, they also have the weapon to end war for good. So, Joshua and his fellow humans set out to find the weapon, but they soon discover that the weapon they are meant to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.
