To save humanity from itself, John Cusack unleashes a powerful and deadly supercomputer in the trailer for the apocalyptic sci-fi thriller "Singularity."

Cusack appears in this highly ambitious, digital effects-heavy indie film as Elias Van Dorne, the head honcho of the world's largest robotics company. The year is 2020. And Van Dorne has taken upon himself to create the "first, true, artificial intelligence" called "Kronos." But as soon as Kronos is activated, it launches a global robot takeover, annihilating most of the human population.

Now fast-forward a hundred years, and the film follows two young teenagers (played by newcomers Julian Schaffner and Jeannine Wacker) trying to survive an apocalyptic Earth governed by giant robotic killing machines.

Written, produced, edited, and directed by 25-year-old Switzerland-born filmmaker Robert Kouba, "Singularity" is out in select theaters, today, November 3rd. It's also currently available on Digital and will arrive on DVD December 5th.

synopsis:
In 2020, Elias van Dorne (John Cusack), CEO of VA Industries, the world's largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention--Kronos, a super computer designed to end all wars. When Kronos goes online, it quickly determines that mankind, itself, is the biggest threat to world peace and launches a worldwide robot attack to rid the world of the "infection" of man. Ninety-seven years later, a small band of humans remain alive but on the run from the robot army. A teenage boy, Andrew (Julian Schaffner) and a teenage girl, Calia (Jeannine Wacker), form an unlikely alliance to reach a new world, where it is rumored mankind exists without fear of robot persecution. But does this world actually exist? And will they live long enough to find out?
