A second trailer for sci-fi thriller The Creator has dropped, courtesy of 20th Century Studios, New Regency, and Entertainment One, teasing a chilling tale of humanity’s war against artificial intelligence.

Gareth Edwards co-writes and directs the feature, which stars Tenet actor John David Washington in the lead role alongside The Eternals star Gemma Chan, Inception’s Ken Watanabe, Sturgill Simpson, Allison Janney, and newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles.

Per the logline: Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua (Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself.  Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.

We dare not think what would happen to sci-fi cinema if audiences ever stopped fearing artificial intelligence taking over.

The Creator releases in cinemas on September 29th. Check out the trailer below:
