Atlas: Netflix scifi movie (full trailer).

Hold onto your tin hats and keep your AI assistants in check, because coming this May is the film that promises to reboot your trust issues—not with your ex, but with artificial intelligence! Atlas, starring the ever-glamorous Jennifer Lopez and an ensemble cast featuring Simu Liu, Sterling K. Brown, and the intensely formidable Mark Strong, is set to make a splash on Netflix, ready to stream into your living room and possibly take over your smart home.

The plot thickens faster than a black hole’s gravity as Atlas Shepherd, played by Lopez, navigates a world where AI is as trustworthy as a chocolate teapot. Shepherd, a data analyst with the people skills of a hermit crab, finds herself on a mission to chase down a renegade robot. Yes, you read that right—a robot gone rogue! And who does she share a mysterious past with? This same silicon scofflaw.

Directed by Brad Peyton, known for making viewers grip their armchairs a bit too tightly, “Atlas” is a film that marries suspense with sci-fi, sprinkled with a dash of existential dread. Imagine needing to trust the very thing you fear to save humanity—sounds like trying to befriend the office printer, doesn’t it? As Shepherd wrestles with her trust issues, the audience will be at the edge of their seats, questioning every beep and boop. With a backdrop that shifts from the sprawling cityscapes of Los Angeles to the rugged terrains of New Zealand, the film promises eye candy not just in the form of its star-studded cast but also with breathtaking cinematography.

Expect thrills, spills, and possibly a philosophical quandary or two, as “Atlas” challenges our fears of the future. Will AI be our salvation, or are we just one update away from our toasters turning against us? This cheeky, action-packed thriller will not only entertain but also leave you pondering whether to give your Alexa an extra goodnight kiss, just in case.

Mark your calendars, set your reminders, and prepare for an evening of high-octane action and speculative science fiction. Atlas drops on Netflix on May 24th, 2024—be there or be square (like the old-school computers we once trusted implicitly). Let the countdown begin!
