First official trailer for Automata, the new sci-fi movie from spanish director Gabe Ibanez. I had different impressions after watching – I think the look of Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium comes very close to Automata. But in the face of the story it’s very familiar to the visionary film Blade Runner.
These two movies are good examples for using practical effects in larger scales. The practical stuntwork of Spiderman swinging looks incredible.
