In life, I think that we often find out that life is usually not greener on the other side. Being unhappy with your situation usually just makes the other side look mighty appealing. In the film science-fiction/action/thriller Zone 414, we see just that dilemma with two characters. One is a wealthy girl that is looking to escape her feelings and the life she’s lived. While the other is an advanced A.I. equipped with the same emotions, feelings, and dreams as a human being. She (as you may have guessed) is looking to further explore her emotions and is looking for the true meaning of freedom.
Zone 414 from Saban Films and Paramount Pictures is directed by Andrew Baird. Based on a script by the very talented Brian Edward Hill. The film stars Guy Pearce, Matilda Lutz, Jonathan Aris, and Travis Fimmel.
Here is the synopsis for Zone 414
Guy Pearce, Matilda Lutz and Travis Fimmel star in the sci-fi thriller set in Zone 414, a dangerous, dark colony of humanoids known as “the city of robots.” The colony’s creator (Fimmel) hires private investigator David Carmichael (Pearce) to track down his missing daughter. David teams up with Jane (Lutz), a highly advanced A.I. equipped with the same technology of her fellow humanoids, but with all the emotions, feelings and dreams of a human being. They travel through the city uncovering clues and a crime that calls into question the origins and true purpose behind the city of artificial humans
With the release of Zone 414 this week, LRM Online’s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with Andrew Baird. In our conversation about the film he tells us how fortunate he feels he was with the cast that worked with him on this film. He had kind words about each of them. He also talks about setting up the grungy world of Zone 414 that he set up. We discussed the challenges in creating and filming actors/actresses playing AIs. It was a great conversation that you can check out down below!
Saban Films’ Zone 414 will be in theaters, On Demand, and Digital on September 3rd, 2021.
