Gareth Edwards’ highly-anticipated return to the world of science-fiction is only a few short weeks away from hitting theaters. To celebrate the upcoming release, ScreenX has unveiled a new poster for The Creator, starring John David Washington, Gemma Chan and Ken Watanabe, that puts the film’s AI-centric plot front and center.
The film follows Washington’s Joshua, who is tasked with destroying an advanced form of AI, only to realize the program appears in the form of a young child (Madeline Yuna Voyles). The new ScreenX poster teases this strange new dynamic, with Voyles’ character looming large in the background over Washington’s ex-Special Forces agent. Also appearing on the poster are Chan, Watanabe, and Alison Janney, whose full involvement in Joshua’s story remain shrouded in mystery, at least for now.
For fans looking to fully immerse themselves in Edwards’ unexpectedly topical sci-fi story, the experience promised by ScreenX might be the way to go, with the sophisticated film format promising viewers the opportunity to enter the world of The Creator and “discover the amazing locations, all brought to life with the immersive, story-enhancing, exclusive 270-degree panoramic ScreenX imagery.”
What’s In a Name?
Though The Creator has been a long time coming, keen fans will remember that it didn’t always have such a sci-fi sounding title. Originally, the film went by the working title True Love, which Edwards admitted might be confusing to potential audiences. He did go on to tell Collider’s Perri Nemiroff, however, that he hopes the original title will make sense to people after they’ve seen the film, saying:
“I’m very glad we changed it now. It’s strange when you have a child who’s identified as one name, and then suddenly you have to get used to calling it something else. I’m just over that now. Now I find myself accidentally saying The Creator all the time, but for a while it was True Love. But when you see the movie it’ll make sense.”
The Creator hits theaters on September 29. Check out the poster and the synopsis below:
From writer/director Gareth Edwards (Rogue One, Godzilla) comes an epic sci-fi action thriller set amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence. Joshua (Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child (Voyles).
