Where to Watch & Stream ‘The Creator’

With the discussion of humans versus Artificial Intelligence more prevalent than ever, Gareth Edwards‘ latest film, The Creator, is coming at the perfect time. Edwards is known for his direction of Rogue One, an instant hit when it premiered in 2016, grossing over a billion dollars worldwide. His latest flick has had its own share of hype, not just because of Edwards’ direction, but because of its all-star cast and the filmmakers behind it.


The film centers around Joshua, played by John David Washington, as he fights against “The Creator,” an AI possessing a weapon that could end the entire human race. Things take an even darker turn when Joshua learns that this weapon, the key to destroying The Creator, is an AI in the form of a child, played by newcomer Madeleine Yuna Voyles. John David Washington has had quite the film career so far, which gained momentum after his role in 2018’s BlacKkKlansman, and continuing as he starred in Christopher Nolan’s 2020 spectacle, Tenet. The film also stars Gemma Chan (Eternals) and Academy Award winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya).

i, Robot (2004) – The 2004 box office hit i, Robot was an exploration of Artificial Intelligence in the not-so-far future, giving viewers an eerie look at a world that didn’t seem too far off from the one they were already living in. The story follows cop Del Spooner (Will Smith) who is so anti-technology that he refuses to own one of the human-like robots that every family has to serve them. His bias runs deep, as he once saw one of these robots refuse to save a drowning girl because she had less of a chance of surviving than the other person in the accident, Spooner himself. When one of these robots is accused of doing the unthinkable – killing its master – Spooner is put on the case and is forced to see just how dangerous Artificial Intelligence can be.
