The idea of humans being dicks to the advanced technology we make isn’t exactly new, but it’s a story that at least looks to being used to particularly spooky effect in Morgan, the feature debut from director Luke Scott (son of Ridley Scott).
The titular Morgan is a rapidly-maturing synthetic being, played by The Witch’s Anya Taylor-Joy, and after the scientists behind her creation suddenly decide that this rapidly-evolving being shouldn’t be treated like a human being, Kate Mara’s “troubleshooter” is called in to investigate. Naturally, things go awry, because when will you learn, supposedly smart scientists!? Still, this looks like it could be a fun ride, despite the familiar premise. Morgan hits theaters September 2.
