Robots are the way forward in this near-future science fiction movie from the director of Amelie: here’s the trailer for BIGBUG.

Academy Award-nominated director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, director of Amelie, hasn’t directed a feature film since 2013. But he appears to be back in style, if the  trailer for the upcoming Netflix sci-fi movie BIGBUG, is anything to go by.

The film takes place ‘a couple of decades into the future, in the year 2050, where artificial intelligence has been made widespread and available to the common citizen, and humanity has grown to rely on it for almost everything. In the trailer, robots execute a variety of different chores for the humans, from opening cans, to playing with children, to cooking, to giving massages, to less mundane and more wicked tasks.’

The cast of BIGBUG includes Dominique Pinon, Elsa Zylberstein, André Dussollier, Isabelle Nanty, Alban Lenoir, Claude Perron, Claire Chust, Stéphane De Groodt, and Youssef Hajdi.

Jeunet reportedly ran into difficulties financing the film, telling the press that Netflix would be his last resort, a measure that has indeed come to pass, and will hopefully introduce the director of the charming Amelie to a wider audience. The film is set to release on February 11th, so pop it in your diary and in the meantime, check out the trailer below.
