Since Denis Villeneuve's Dune, we hadn't had the feeling of discovering a new universe of SF as ambitious and innovative as the one proposed in the trailer for The Creator. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards (Rogue One, Monsters) and it already looks like a festival of thrills and ambitious sequences unlike any other.
Alert on the dangers of AI
The official synopsis reads: “In the near future, humans and artificial intelligence (AI) are waging an all-out war. Joshua, an ex-special forces agent weakened by the disappearance of his wife, is recruited to hunt down and neutralize the Creator, the elusive architect of an advanced AI behind a weapon that could end the war. …and destroy all of humanity. With the help of an elite unit of operatives, Joshua breaks through enemy lines and penetrates deep into their dangerous territory. He will soon discover that the deadly weapon he is tasked with destroying is none other than a superior artificial intelligence that has taken on the features of a young child”.
The Creator, September 27 at the cinema
The Creator's story was imagined by Gareth Edwards himself and co-written by Chris Weitz, already co-writer of Rogue One. In the cast, John David Washington (Tenet), Gemma Chan (The Eternals), Ken Watanabe (Inception), Allison Janney (Me, Tonya), Sturgill Simpson (Killers of the Flower Moon) and the young Madeleine Yuna Voyles, whose it will be the first appearance on screen.
The Creator will be released in France on September 27th. Let's hope it fulfills all the promises that this trailer conveys.
