Well this looks like fun…part Bladerunner, and part I Robot, the upcoming movie Autómata (October 2014) from Gabe Ibáñez explores the emergence of consciousness in robots by (loosely*) exploring Asimov’s laws of robotics:

Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation, routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.

I like the fact that the robots aren’t made to look super-futuristic…plenty of grunge tin-can about them and their voices, rather than slick, smooth CG:

Starring Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Melanie Griffith, Robert Forster and an almost unrecognisable Dylan McDermott, Automata opens on October 24.

(* One of the ‘protocols’ in this movie seems not to be one of Asimov’s laws, but in fact address a potential problem with the laws: the ability for robots to modify themselves and their programming)
