Ahead of the Script To Sreen session on Saturday, we are deliughted to announced a special industry screening of ‘The Machine’, introduced by the filmmakers.
With an impoverished world plunged into a Cold War with a new enemy, Britain’s Ministry of Defense is on the brink of developing a game-changing weapon. Lead scientist Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens) provides the answer with his creation, ‘The Machine’- an android with unrivalled physical and processing skills. When a programming glitch causes an early prototype to destroy his lab, McCarthy enlists artificial intelligence expert Ava (Caity Lotz) to help him harness the full potential of a truly conscious fighting machine.
‘The Machine’ made an exclusive list compiled by Variety of top films for sale at Cannes!
‘The Machine’, was selected from over 6000 films to premiere in this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Reviews described it as:
‘Perfect, heartbreaking… The best film of Tribeca 2013′ Sound on Sight
‘Slickly designed and beautiful… great prosthetics, VFX designs… a pro-science, anti-war fable.’ Fangoria
‘The Machine is a strange and gorgeously shot sci-fi thriller with an intriguing thematic undercurrent about the ever-blurring boundaries between people and machines.’ The Week
‘Slick and thought-provoking… James’ direction captures the feel of a still hopeful dystopia with flourishes of stark, foreboding imagery that shows an eye for what makes a particular shot look epic even when it’s just a close-up. It’s Zen and the Art of Sci-Fi’ Dread Central
