UK’s Embankment Films and director Jon Wright (Grabbers (2012)) just released the movie poster for his new sci-fi movie Robot Overlords (2014). The synopsis seems interesting and to get Anderson and Kingsley involved means that the film should be really good on paper, hopefully it translates to film the same. The new film has a magnificent cast including Gillian Anderson, Ben Kingsley, Ella Hunt and Callan McAuliffe.
Synopsis: 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.
