Be afraid, the machines are taking over. Strike that, the machines have already taken over. Forget what you've seen in the movies about artificial intelligence leading to the ruination of all humankind, artificial intelligence is here and already has taken over the movies themselves. Don't think so? Then check out what IBM has done in creating the new trailer for the upcoming sci-fi film, Morgan.
IBM Research has teamed with 20th Century Fox on the first movie trailer ever created by artificial intelligence. The program analyzed hundreds of horror/thriller trailers to find out what shakes audiences to their core, using that research to create its own. Appropriately enough, Morgan is about an enhanced artificial life form (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) investigated by a mysterious corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) to see if the innocent-looking girl is a danger.
Check out the trailer below and let us know if you found it effective. Morgan is directed by Luke Scott and co-stars Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Boyd Holbrook, and Paul Giamatti. Look for our review tomorrow ahead of its release on September 2nd.
