Watch the Trailer for What Might Be the Most Touching Robot & Human Buddy Movie “Brian and Charles”
While some see the singularity, the theoretical point in time where artificial intelligence over takes humanity, as an oncoming annihilation akin to The Matrix, there are other possibilities where the future allows for AI and humankind to co-exist peacefully. In fact, we may even up being friends. Think about all the iconic droids from the Star Wars universe and how that might potentially be more likely?
Well, while pondering that endless quandary, take a gander at the trailer for Brian and Charles, the Sundance hit that shows how an amateur inventor ends up Frankenstein-ing his own robot and, subsequently, his best friend. The trio of David Earl (Kev on Ricky Gervais’ Derek), Chris Hayward, and Louise Brealey, who all star in the movie, wrote such a charming, much more hopeful vision of the future with the washing-machine-bodied robot known as Charles. Again, while Black Mirror prescribes a future where robots hunt us, Brian and Charles seems like it has a bunch of heart between human & AI friends.
See for yourself with the first trailer for Brian and Charles here, then look for its release on Jun. 17th.
