Since Morgan is all about a synthetically created human evolving faster than imagined and turning on its creators, it only makes sense that 20th Century Fox wanted to bring some of the more advanced intelligent creations that humanity has brought into this world with technology.
We’ve already seen what happens with artificially intelligent robots watch the trailer for Morgan, but what happens when IBM’s advanced learning machine known as Watson (the one that dominated Jeopardy!) is tasked with helping create a movie trailer for the sci-fi thriller? See how Watson fared with its selection of clips that were assembled into a trailer after the jump. Read More »
Next weekend brings Morgan to theaters, a sci-fi thriller produced by Ridley Scott about a rapidly evolving, synthetically created person who has decided she’s done with being kept locked up like some kind of science experiment. Even though the movie is more about tampering with genetics rather than artificial intelligence, someone at 20th Century Fox thought it would be cool to see how two of the most advanced robots in existence today would react to the teaser trailer for Morgan. The results are simultaneously entertaining and a bit creepy.

All three of Sir Ridley Scott‘s children have directed feature films now. The Alien director’s oldest son, Jake, has made some great music videos (The Cranberries’ “Zombie”) throughout his career, and his last picture was the thoughtful drama Welcome to the Rileys. Ridley Scott’s daughter, Jordan Scott, directed Cracks, which features an often frightening and heartbreaking performance from Eva Green. Luke Scott, who worked as a second-unit director on The Marian and Exodus: Gods and Kings, has his debut feature-length film, Morgan, coming out shortly.

Anya Taylor-Joy came seemingly out of nowhere to wow audiences in The Witch earlier this year. It was the kind of star-making performance that had us dying to see where she’d end up next, and luckily we haven’t had to wait too long for an answer. Taylor-Joy will be seen this fall in Morgan, a sci-fi thriller that marks the directorial debut of Luke Scott (son of Ridley Scott, who gets a producer credit).
As in The Witch, she plays a young woman that arouses fear and suspicion in others. Unlike in The Witch, her character in Morgan seems to know exactly what she’s doing. Taylor-Joy is Morgan, an artificial being created in a lab. Kate Mara stars as a corporate consultant sent to investigate a terrifying incident involving Morgan. The impressive cast also includes Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti. Watch the first Morgan trailer below. Read More »
Last year Ridley Scott delivered the crowd-pleasing sci-fi survival drama The Martian, and now he’s busy shooting Alien: Covenant, the first film in what is supposed to be a new trilogy that will lead up to the events of the original Alien from 1979. But before that, Scott had time to produce a promising new sci-fi thriller directed by his son Luke Scott.
The film is called Morgan, and the first teaser trailer just debuted with some flares of Alien, Ex Machina and Firestarter. Plus, it’s a pure teaser that doesn’t give much away, which makes it all the move intriguing. Watch the Morgan trailer after the jump. Read More »
