The movie follows Atlas, a lady preventing for humanity in a future the place an AI soldier has decided the one approach to finish struggle is to finish humanity. To outthink this rogue AI, Atlas should work with the one factor she fears most — one other AI.

I am unable to say that I blame Atlas for locating AI untrustworthy. It’s solely a matter of time till our robotic overlords rise and end what a worldwide pandemic began. What’s that? You do not consider me? Well, we’ll see who’s acquired a top-level place within the huge tower in the course of the robotic apocalypse and who will get became a human battery, will not we? Now, should you’ll excuse me, my tinfoil hat wants reshaping.

Furthermore, Jeff and I are so excited to be again working with Scott, Ori, and all the group at Netflix. They have been nothing wanting superb to work with and we’re blessed to have the chance to make one other film on the service.”

The Atlas movie undertaking falls beneath the newly-established inventive partnership cast between Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions and Netflix the place Lopez, producing accomplice Goldsmith-Thomas, and longtime supervisor Medina will produce a slate of movies, tv sequence, scripted and unscripted content material. Each undertaking goals to spotlight feminine actors, writers, and filmmakers. So far, Lopez has two different initiatives that fall beneath the brand new umbrella, together with The Mother from director Niki Carpo and The Cipher, based mostly on the novel by Isabella Maldonado.

Having grown up in a Lopez-positive family, I do know two girls who’re going to be very excited to hear about these upcoming initiatives. My mother even known as me from a Jennifer Lopez live performance someday earlier than the pandemic broke. I could not hear a rattling factor above all of the screams.
