First Look! Concept Art For Steven Spielberg's Postponed Robopocalypse

Get your first look at concept art for Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse.

In January of 2013, it was announced that Steven Spielberg's film adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's best-selling sci-fi novel Robopocalypse was indefinitely postponed. Reason for the delay? Spielberg felt the script, penned by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods), wasn't ready and there were budgetary concerns that needed to be addressed.

Many people were caught off guard by the news as Robopocalypse had been set to film in the spring of 2013. It already had Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Anne Hathaway (Interstellar), and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) lined up to star. 

Synopsis - In the future, robots have been created to serve Mankind. Archos, the 14th version of an advanced Artificial Intelligence developed by the U.S. government, continuously deleted for displaying hostility towards humans, escapes from being destroyed and soon becomes a virus, downloading itself into every piece of A.I.-controlled technology in the planet, leading to a worldwide robot uprising where the humans caught in the chaos struggle to survive.

  1. I'm looking forward to this movie and the concept art is compelling. I'm afraid, though, the format may not translate appropriately into a movie. Won't it turn out to be a World War Z disaster all over again? I'm teasing the idea of what I'd want to get from a movie adaptation. The book was so entertaining and maybe it's best kept in my imagination. That being said, I'd love to see it come to life on screen. I don't want to it to become a movie staring Chris Hemsworth and only about the Brightboy Squad. The Cloud Atlas adaptation really spoke to me. How can the adaptation seamlessly tell a half dozen stories and still make money. Cloud Atlas was a high-quality film yet didn't succeed at the box office. What's the balance here?
