John David Washington saves the world from AI in “The Creator” trailer

In a future world devastated by a war between humans and artificial intelligence (AI), a new action/sci-fi film called “The Creator” delves into the ethical dilemmas surrounding AI and its impact on humanity, as the just released trailer indicates.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, known for his work on Rogue One, the movie follows the story of Joshua, an ex-special forces agent played by John David Washington.

The plot centres around a nuclear warhead detonated in Los Angeles by AI robots designed to protect humans, sparking a relentless conflict between humans and AI. 

Joshua is recruited by Colonel Howell, portrayed by Allison Janney, to join a team of operatives on a mission to hunt down the elusive Creator, the architect of advanced AI and the potential end of the world.

However, there’s a twist: the world-ending AI superweapon takes the form of a cute child, played by Madeleine Yuna Voyles, who possesses strong opinions about humanity and the freedom of robots. This predicament raises profound moral questions and adds complexity to the mission. The film explores the tension between the threat posed by AI and the human desire to humanize and understand it.

From what can be gleaned from the trailer, “The Creator” promises to be a thought-provoking and action-packed film that tackles the dangers and morals of AI in a post-apocalyptic setting. 

With its talented cast and the direction of Gareth Edwards, it has the potential to be a standout movie in the AI era. Audiences can expect a thrilling journey as Joshua and his team venture into AI-occupied territory to confront the Creator and the world-ending weapon.
