Human and machine take a step closer to becoming one in the critically acclaimed sci-fi drama Archive starring Theo James.

After a successful digital release earlier this year, Dazzler Media are set to give Gavin Rothery‘s film a Blu-Ray and DVD release next month.

James (Divergent films) plays George Almore a scientist living in isolation in a Japanese forest. He’s on the brink of an breakthrough working on a true human-equivalent AI. He also lost his wife a few years before and thanks to his breakthrough is he about to be reunited with her once again?

2049. A roboticist, George Almore, is on the verge of a breakthrough. Stationed at a remote, secret facility, he has been working on a model that is a true, human equivalent android. His latest prototype, J3, is almost complete.

Development of J3 has been achieved through two earlier prototypes, J1 and J2. Each prototype is an increasingly advanced version of his wife, Jules, who died in a brutal car crash. Driven by love for Jules, George has secretly skewed the focus of his work: developing the robots towards the goal of creating a simulacra of Jules.

As his work approaches its final and riskiest stages, external forces threaten to discover and shutdown his facility while the introduction of the highly advanced J3 collapses the delicate ‘family’ balance inside the facility.

Written and directed by Gavin Rothery, Archive also co-stars  Stacy Martin (The Serpent), with a top supporting cast including Rhona Mitra (Doomsday), Peter Ferdinando (Hyena) and Toby Jones (Uncle Vanya).

Dazzler Media will be releasing Archive on Blu-ray & DVD in the UK and Ireland from 12th July.
