We’re about to be up to our waists, maybe higher, in artificially intelligent robot movies. Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie drops next week, Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina hits in April, and Marvel gets in on the act in May with Avengers: Age of Ultron wreaking havoc all over the globe. While those films are all getting relatively wide releases (Age of Ultron’s release is obviously going to be massive), Eva, a similarly themed film is flying in under the radar, but looks no less intriguing than the others. And a new trailer has surfaced for the film.
Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds, A Most Wanted Man, and he’ll also appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) plays a near-future engineer who, while working on an artificially intelligent robot child, reunites with his former lover, who is now shacking up with his estranged brother. From this trailer you get a good sense of the film’s mixture of hard science fiction and interpersonal, familial, relationship drama.
