Full Trailer For Gareth Edwards’ ‘The Creator’ AI Film Promises Epic Sci-Fi Adventure

With the rise in all things A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) in the past year or so, there is no better time for a post-apocalyptic thriller involving a future impacted by a war between humans and AI. The Creator is a sci-fi epic directed and written by Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). The film stars John David Washington (Tenet), Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Gemma Chan (Eternals) and Ken Watanabe (Godzilla: King of Monsters).

First teased on 17 May via 20th Century Studios’ YouTube channel, which came under the radar for most, it immediately caught our attention with its use of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”. The teaser trailer was filled with captivating sci-fi visuals, biblical references, and a protagonist tasked to destroy an AI android in the form of a child, but ends up protecting her.
