This looks fascinating!



Have you heard of it? It seems to be a mash up of Asimov's robotics ideas, and much truer and grittier than the earlier I Robot interpretation. These robots don't look all cute and human; they look like robots.

I'm intrigued and excited by this, and I hope the release in Aus isn't much delayed after the release in the north.

(And also...Antonio Banderas! :wooper: )

That looks muuuuuch better than the I Robot movie. And more unsettling.

That I Robot film may well be the worst so-called adaptation in the history of filmmaking.

Except it never really claimed to be an adaptation did it? It was more like an "inspired by".
