Sci-fi thriller ‘The Creator’ trailer release was one of the most intriguing, most unexpected buzz-makers at the 2023 CinemaCon.
The cast —John David Washington (Tenet), Gemma Chan (Eternals), Ken Watanabe (Inception), Sturgill Simpson (Dog), and Allison Janney (I, Tonya), plus newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles—and the script is by Edwards and Chris Weitz (the latter of whom co-wrote Rogue One with Tony Gilroy), from a story by Edwards.
Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua (Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself.
Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.”
Directed by Gareth Edwards, the film’s screenplay is by Edwards and Chris Weitz, from a story by Edwards.
The movie arrives in theaters on 29 September.
