I, Robot-- looks like a Matrix Prequel-- is it?

Have you seen the preview for the new Will Smith movie "I, Robot"?

For those of you that haven't, click on the link below and watch it:

http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/i_robot/



Those of you that have seen the Animatix know that this movie (I. Robot) looks an awful lot like the part of the Animatrix where the servant robot rebels against his master. I believe it was called The Second Renaissance... Anyways, this seems to be too much of a coincidence. What do you think about this?

It isn't being portrayed AS a Matrix Prequel, it just seems very similar...

looks like a good movie. a lot of people will tie it in with the 2nd ren just like striel said. it actually looks promising. and the robots kinda look like B166ER.

Asimov's Robot series was far, far better than the cliched dross that was Second Renaissance. It took a far more intelligent view of the troubles of AI creation.

That's pretty ironic/cool Will Smith was in the list of being Neo, but he turned it down to play in the big blockbuster movie flop wild wild west.

Right, this is weird, too weird to be a coincidence. Although I, Robot is a Fox Film. I highly, I mean, HIGHLY recommend LISTENING to that trailer again. In particular, the music.

Just believe me when I tell you: that is no "ordinary" music.

Yes, it's Navras. Music is almost always borrowed from previous movies' soundtracks... but this is interesting. After viewing the trailer, it looks more and more like The Animatrix all over again.... wouldn't it be a kicker if at the end, the screen just turns to matrix code, and fades to black? Although that won't happen.. since this is 20th Century Fox and Matrix was WB

yes, really weird on the part of neo. Maybe once he found out that matrix was a huge hit, he looked back and said, "man, my bad." laughing So maybe this new movie is somewhat a revelation to matrix and would make a reasonable amount of money as done matrix. But you never know...

Errr, no... 'I, Robot' was the book that founded the idea of AI exploration in sci-fi which has now simply become an established piece, in 2001: ASO, Terminator, and more recently Matrix. It would be like saying it is weird that the Lawnmower Man involves cyberspace just like the matrix, despite being written at different times.

It is, of course, from Asimov that the three 'Asimov's laws' of robotics behaviour was developed, which Asimov said humans would need to build into all AIs precisely to prevent robotic rebellion.

However, people do rather quickly forget that the entire Robot series was Asimov's explorations of the meanings, limits, and failings of his own laws.

The Robot series also went into great depth to explore what it would MEAN if we developed intelligent AIs who serve us, and its effect on human culture and development. All very interesting but not much to do with something like the Matrix, and that extent of his storyline is not worth filming, even though they are interesting books.

...and seeing how the W brothers took much of their stories from many different sources, the second rennaissance was probably based on the Asimov story

Sorry for the off-topicness. embarrasment

But yes, 2nd Ren. may be based off of Asimov. And Asimov is a brilliant man.. I've read several of his works. smile
