I, Robot Meets the Subcontinent

So there was the Red Eagle trailer yesterday and today we’ve got India’s answer to I, Robot, The Matrix and Austin Powers in the form of Endhiran which translates as “The Robot.” If a new trailer for Space Battleship Yamato hits tomorrow we’ll hit some sort of Asian sci-fi trifecta for the week.

This might be the most insane trailer I have ever seen for a movie. There are choreographed dance scenes with golden robots, a giant robot cobra eating cars, an android running sideways down the side of the outside of a train, a robot drawing and firing approximately fifty machine guns all at the same time. And sun glasses. More sun glasses and leather than have been seen since The Matrix.

The first clip is a new one minute trailer, while the one below it is a stitch-up of a different one minute trailer and a few 15 second spots.

My brain just melted right out of my nostrils. If there was some sort of index for the art of being so terrible that you wrap right back round to awesome, then this film would be the gold standard.

Oh, did I mention there are some production stills? There are some production stills.
