First Look At Steven Spielberg's Postponed ROBOPOCALYPSE (Storyboards)
Robopocalypse was supposed to be Steven Spielberg's next sci-fi action tentpole, but it has been postponed for an indefinite time. It would've starred Chris Hemsworth ("Thor: The Dark World") and Anne Hathaway ("The Dark Knight Rises"). Come see storyboards!
At the beginning of this year, Steven Spielberg ("Minority Report") announced an indefinite postponement of his big-budget sci-fi adaptation of Robopocalypse. Based on the 2011 book by Daniel H. Wilson, Robopocalypse would have starred Chris Hemsworth ("The Avengers"), Anne Hathaway ("Interstellar"), and Ben Whishaw ("Skyfall"). The script was penned by Drew Goddard ("The Cabin in the Woods"). Why was production halted? Steven Spielberg's spokesman Marvin Levy said back in January that Robopocalypse was “too important and the script is not ready, and it’s too expensive to produce. It’s back to the drawing board to see what is possible.” Even though the film is in hiatus, let's take a look at some storyboards that artist Michael Anthony Jackson created for it.
Unofficial Synopsis - In the future, robots have been created to serve Mankind. Archos, the 14° version of an advanced Artificial Intelligence developed by the U.S. government, continuously deleted for displaying hostility towards humans, escapes from being destroyed and soon becomes a virus, downloading itself into every piece of A.I.-controlled technology in the planet, leading to a worldwide robot uprising where the humans caught in the chaos struggle to survive.
