The first official trailer for Automata, a sci-fi flick starring Antonio Banderas, is out, and it’ll tickle the fancy of Isaac Asimov and Philip K. Dick fans alike. The movie’s plot seems to draw equally from Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and Isaac Asimov’s short story Runaround, which introduces the Three Laws of robotics. In Automata, set in year 2044, robots are far more advanced than today, but they also have to follow some basic rules, one of them forbidding them to alter themselves in any way. Amidst all that is Antonio Banderas, who plays Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent for the ROC robotics corporation. He follows a case of two robots being altered, which leads him to discover that robots are already a couple steps further than he imagined. The movie is set to hit theaters on Oct. 10, 2014.
