“I stand before you to announce the first true artificial intelligence, Kronos. Tonight, this night enter a new age.” In ‘Singularity’ the year is 2020 and Elias van Dorne (John Cusack), CEO of VA Industries, the world’s largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention–Kronos, a super computer designed to end all wars. “You know what Kronos is capable of?” “Capable of saving earth from self-destruction.”
“A century ago they were activated, super machines programmed to eradicate a pledge that was destroying our planet. Us, 8 billion people lost their lives. I am a survivor, but I am not alone. There must be others out there, others who are good.” When Kronos goes online, it quickly determines that mankind, itself, is the biggest threat to world peace and launches a worldwide robot attack to rid the world of the “infection” of man.
“He is awake. He’s stronger than the others.” “Evolution’s run its course.” “How did you get here?” “I don’t know.” Ninety-seven years later, a small band of humans remain alive but on the run from the robot army. A teenage boy, Andrew (Julian Schaffner) and a teenage girl, Calia (Jeannine Wacker), form an unlikely alliance to reach a new world, where it is rumored mankind exists without fear of robot persecution.
“Let it begin.” “If I didn’t know any better I’d say you want the machines to find us.” But does the world they seek actually exist? And will they live long enough to find out? Directed and written by Robert Kouba, ‘Singularity’ with a cast that also includes Carmen Argenziano and Eileen Grubba will be released in limited theaters + on VOD November 3, 2017.
