French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet has made some extremely well-regarded movies like Delicatessan, The Metropolis of Misplaced Youngsters, and Amélie (and he additionally directed Alien: Resurrection, about which the much less mentioned the higher), nevertheless it’s been practically a decade since he final wrote and directed a film. That may change this February, when Jeunet’s colourful, offbeat sci-fi comedy Bigbug a few robot uprising involves Netflix.

Now, there are unusually—or maybe appropriately—two completely different synopses for the movie, and I’m going to offer each to you:

1) “A bunch of bickering suburbanites discover themselves caught collectively when an android rebellion causes their well-intentioned family robots to lock them in for their very own security.”

2) “People have ceded most duties to AI in 2045, even in nostalgic Alice’s residence. So when robots stage a coup, her androids protectively lock her doorways.”

If you happen to watch this trailer, it looks like among the androids are staging a revolution, whereas the robots try to guard the bougie folks inside Alice’s gaudy home. However perhaps among the robots have gone rogue as properly? Look, right here’s the trailer, make your personal name:

I’m unsure it actually issues which inorganic beings are doing the revolting, on condition that all the pieces proven on this trailer is completely weird. In addition to the actually fascinating and distinctive robotic/android designs, there’s some naked backside spanking, a Catwoman outfit, and I feel I even noticed a few aliens in there extraordinarily briefly? And the colour palette of the film is simply pretty; even when the plot finally ends up being incomprehensible, it could be value expecting the visible artistry alone.

Bigbug stars Elsa Zylberstein, Isabelle Nanty, Stéphane De Groodt, Dominque Pinon, Youssef Hadji, André Dussolier, Alban Lenoir, Claud Perron, and Claire Chust. It premieres on Netflix on February 11.
