LOS ANGELES, Nov 6 — Voltage Pictures has released a new trailer for its sci-fi thriller Singularity that stars John Cusack.
Cusack plays a powerful tech CEO who has created a super computer called Kronos that apparently has the ability to end all wars. Of course, things will go wrong and the computer determines humans must be eradicated, unleashing an army of robots upon the world.
The film also stars Julian Schaffner, Jeannine Wacker, Eileen Grubba, and Carmen Argenziano.
The synopsis of the film reads: “n 2020, Elias van Dorne (Cusack), CEO of VA Industries, the world’s largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention — Kronos, a super computer designed to end all wars. When Kronos goes online, it quickly determines that mankind, itself, is the biggest threat to world peace and launches a worldwide robot attack to rid the world of the “infection” of man. Ninety-seven years later, a small band of humans remain alive but on the run from the robot army. A teenage boy, Andrew (Schaffner) and a teenage girl, Calia (Wacker), form an unlikely alliance to reach a new world, where it is rumored mankind exists without fear of robot persecution.”
Singularity is set for release sometime this month.
