Jennifer Lopez Is Hell-Bent on Ending Simu Liu's AI Villain in Netflix's 'Atlas' Trailer

The 'Shotgun Wedding' actress plays Atlas Shepherd, a brilliant but misanthropic data analyst who is at odds with artificial intelligence and shares a mysterious past with a renegade robot.

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez is humanity's last hope in the first trailer of upcoming Netflix movie "Atlas". Making its way out online on Tuesday, April 23, the video introduces Lopez's titular character, who is hell-bent on ending an artificial intelligence going rogue known as Harlan, who is portrayed by "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and "Barbie" actor Simu Liu.

"Agent Atlas Shepherd has spent years of her life hunting the artificial intelligence known as Harlan," Mark Strong's character explains to another person in the trailer. Of the AI, he says, "Originally engineered to advance humanity, he instead nearly ended it."

The footage shows massive destruction and battle ongoing at what looks like a war zone as Atlas insists, "If you wanna try to capture Harlan, you need me on that mission." They soon come under attack, forcing Atlas to get into a war machine and trust an AI to fight against the main villain, who threatens to end humanity.

"Don't worry. We're simply the better versions of you," Harlan menacingly says. "If we don't stop Harlan, all life on Earth is doomed," Atlas warns with her shaken voice.

According to the official synopsis, "Atlas Shepherd (Jennifer Lopez), a brilliant but misanthropic data analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence, joins a mission to capture a renegade robot with whom she shares a mysterious past. But when plans go awry, her only hope of saving the future of humanity from AI is to trust it."

The trailer features Sterling K. Brown, with Abraham Popoola and Lana Parrilla also joining the cast. The sci-fi action thriller is directed by Brad Peyton with the script provided by Leo Sardarian and Aron Eli Coleite. The movie is scheduled to be released by Netflix on May 24.
