Toby Stephens and Caity Lotz star in new sci-fi movie The Machine. Check out the new poster that states “They Rise, We Fall”. Gloomy indeed and somewhere on level with a Terminator type plot I suppose but may be a gem waiting to be watched. A U.S. distributor has picked up the movie but no word has been officially announced on who just yet.
Synopsis: With an impoverished world plunged into a Cold War with a new enemy, Britain’s Ministry of Defense is on the brink of developing a game-changing weapon. Lead scientist Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens) provides the answer with his creation, ‘The Machine’- an android with unrivalled physical and processing skills. When a programming glitch causes an early prototype to destroy his lab, McCarthy enlists artificial intelligence expert Ava (Lotz) to help him harness the full potential of a truly conscious fighting machine.
Directed by Caradog W. James
Official Synopsis: Two artificial intelligence engineers come together as they work to create the first ever self-aware artificial intelligence. A veteran AI engineer secretly hopes to develop technology to help his diseased daughter, even if it means funding comes from the powerful Ministry of Defence (MoD). His new partner, a young woman gifted in the field of AI, is brought on after her breakthroughs are recognized by the MoD. Things go wrong when the MoD takes over and advances the researchers' work to the next level, teaching the AI to kill and follow MoD instructions with its new and nearly indestructible body.
