The Creator is one of the most exciting original blockbusters coming our way this year, and the new trailer is promising one wild ride. Golden Globe nominee John David Washington takes the lead in this gripping tale about the profound impact of artificial intelligence on our world.

Washington portrays Joshua, a hardened ex-special forces agent trying to come to terms with his wife’s disappearance when he’s called upon to track down the Creator—the mastermind behind advanced AI that has the power to end the war…and humanity itself.

He must join forces with an elite team of operatives and journey deep into AI-occupied territory, only to find out that the mysterious world-ending weapon isn’t a destructive device but an AI entity, taking the form of an innocent young child.

The film also stars Gemma Chan, Ken Watanabe, Sturgill Simpson, Madeleine Yuna Voyles, Allison Janney, Ralph Ineson, and Marc Menchaca, while Gareth Edwards (GodzillaRogue One: A Star Wars Story) was in charge of directing it from the script he wrote with Chris Weitz.

The first look at The Creator was unveiled at Comic-Con this spring, and its release date was moved up a week during this event, to September 29.
