[Tribeca ’13] First Clip From ‘The Machine’ Sliced Open!


The Machine will be world premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday. The film, directed and written by Caradog James (Little White Lies), looks like an intriguing dystopian riff on Frankenstein. We shared some stills the other day and now we have a clip (via Yahoo) that unveils the Machine itself with a surgical razor.

With an impoverished world plunged into a Cold War with a new enemy, Britain’s Ministry of Defense is on the brink of developing a game-changing weapon. Lead scientist Vincent McCarthy (Toby Stephens) provides the answer with his creation, ‘The Machine’- an android with unrivalled physical and processing skills. When a programming glitch causes an early prototype to destroy his lab, McCarthy enlists artificial intelligence expert Ava (Caity Lotz) to help him harness the full potential of a truly conscious fighting machine.” Toby Stephens, Caity Lotz, Denis Lawson, Sam Hazeldine and Pooneh Hajimohammadi all star.

Content Media is handling sales at the fest. Head inside for the clip and some new stills!

    The story alone sounds interesting so I definitely want to see this. Besides, I love Caity Lotz she was great in The Pact.
