Is Netflix’s algorithm actually creating the movies now, too? Following in the overwhelming success of Extraction, already the streaming service has another generic, rote, comic book-based action movie clearly created by machine learning. Have a look with the trailer for The Old Guard.
Charlize Theron stars as the leader of a group of immortal, centuries-old mercenaries able to heal from any wound. Bad guy Chiwetel Ejiofor and his cronies want to capture the Old Guards and exploit their powers. Honestly, it all feels well below Theron’s pay grade, but this is what the AI kicked out, so that’s what we’ve got.
The Old Guard hits Netflix July 10.
