For decades we’ve talked about human and machine coming closer and closer. In the UK Trailer for sci-fi thriller Archive, Theo James is empty and Lost. What do you do? resurrect the one you lost.
The film comes from Gavin Rothery, a slick sci-fi thriller that looks at the future of artificial intelligence and its impact on the universal human experience.
James plays George a scientist living in the middle of nowhere in a Japanese forest. He’s on the brink of an breakthrough working on a true human-equivalent AI. A few years before he lost his wife, is he about to be reunited with her once again?
It’s a terrifying era in humanity as we takes steps closer to human and machine becoming one. This looks an interesting prospect that will test your morality and ethics in the way ex-Machina did. Does also remind me a little of Netflix‘s I Am Mother too but is science going too far?
2038. Two and a half years into a three-year research contract, George Almore (Theo James) is on the verge of a breakthrough. Stationed halfway up a snow-capped mountain near Kyoto at a secret facility codenamed ‘The Garden’, he has been working on a model that is a true human-equivalent android. His prototype is almost complete. But this most sensitive phase of his work is also the riskiest. Especially as George has an ulterior motive for his work that must be hidden at all costs: Being re-united with his dead wife, Jules (Stacy Martin).
