Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.12.14] United Kingdom scifi action thriller adventure



Toplined by Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley (and, of course, some UK teens), Robot Overlords might just be the popcorn movie to watch out for in 2015. Oh yeah, and another thing, it's directed by Jon Wright who's last film, Grabbers (review), was easily one of the best monster comedies in recent memory so this just rocketed to the top of my must-see list.


Synopsis:
Earth has been conquered by robots from a distant galaxy; survivors are confined to their houses and must wear electronic implants, risking incineration by robot sentries if they venture outside.

In robot-occupied Britain, city centres are devastated and a gang of teenagers live in a seaside town constantly under robot threat. Intimidating sentries patrol the streets; snipers are merciless death machines. The Mediator is deceptively childlike but unnervingly coercive. The robot base is The Cube, a massive mother ship that dominates the horizon.



Robot Overlords hits UK cinemas next March. Still no word on US or Canadian distro, but we'll be sure to let 'ya know!

Always amused by people with psychic powers that can only use them with hand gestures.
