20th Century Studios, New Regency and Entertainment One have released the first trailer for The Creator, a new sci-fi action thriller from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards, starring Tenet's John David Washington.
Aside from the initial title announcement last year, we haven't heard much about this one at all until now. This is obviously not always a great sign, but the trailer does look pretty good.
The story focuses on Washington's ex-special forces agent, who has a chance to rid the world of a potentially catastrophic AI... if he can bring himself to kill a child to achieve his mission.

“Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua (Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war… and mankind itself.
Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory… only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.”
The Creator also stars Gemma Chan (Eternals), Ken Watanabe (Inception), Sturgill Simpson (Dog), newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles and Academy Award winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya), and is set to hit theaters on September 29.
