The Creator trailer previews the next science-fiction epic from Gareth Edwards, starring John David Washington, Gemma Chan, and more.
From the beautiful mind of Rogue One and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards comes another science-fiction epic that’s as thought-provoking as it is visually splendiferous. 20th Century Studios, New Regency, and Entertainment One have released a trailer for The Creator, opening in theaters on September 29. The Creator trailer depicts a world ravaged by a war between humankind and machine. If anyone wants to survive, they’ll need to adapt, fight back, and question what kind of world they want to live in.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Creator:
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.
John David Washington (Tenet), Gemma Chan (Eternals), Ken Watanabe (Inception), Sturgill Simpson (Dog), newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles, and Allison Janney (Juno) lead the cast. Gareth Edwards directs from a screenplay he wrote with Chris Weitz, based on a story by Edwards. Edwards produces alongside Kiri Hart, Jim Spencer, and Amon Milchan. Yariv Milchan, Michael Schaefer, Natalie Lehmann, Nick Meyer, and Zev Foreman executive produce.
Gareth Edwards agreed to direct The Creator in February 2020. Filming began in Thailand in January 2022, with Greg Fraser and Oren Soffer in charge of cinematography. The first look at the film debuted at CinemaCon 2023, winning over a crowd eager to witness the filmmaker’s next endeavor.
The team’s hard work results in a sprawling apocalypse that pushes humanity’s survival instincts to the brink when artificial intelligence rebels, setting up a world-ending event that could bring about the end of days for beings made of flesh and blood. When salvation arrives in the form of a small child, plans for retaliation could change.
