Thoughts: Gosh, so many other movies raced through my mind as I watched the trailer for this futuristic sci-fi flick starring Antonio Banderas (The Expendables 3). Visions of Minority Report and, most vividly, I, Robot were dancing around in my brain and perhaps that wasn’t quite a bad thing. Both are solid films with some interesting social messages to them and if Autómata has something to add to the conversation then I am all ears. Banderas hasn’t led a film in quite some time so I’m curious to see how this one turns out for him, especially considering his estranged wife Melanie Griffith (Working Girl) is part of the cast as well. I’ll never turn my nose up at a slick slice of life look at robots in the future so my battery is cautiously charged for this one.
