WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Earth has been conquered by an army of robots from a distant galaxy, with all human survivors confined to their homes or risk incineration. Of course, this rule is soon tested by a group of young fighters…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Jon Wright continues his reputation as the most interesting British sci-fi director you haven’t even heard of (seriously, check out his previous film Grabbers – it’s pretty fun) with this giant robot film that aims to show Michael Bay how it’s truly done.
