Here's What Steven Spielberg's 'Robopocalypse' Would Have Looked Like

Dec 27, 2013

Robopocalypse coverSteven Spielberg’s adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s novel Robopocalypse was delayed indefinitely earlier this year – mainly because Spielberg wasn’t happy with Drew Goddard’s script and the cost of making the feature as he envisioned it was going to be exorbitant even by Hollywood blockbuster standards.

However, we can get a glimpse of what the Chris Hemsworth vehicle might have looked like thanks to these nifty storyboards.

Comic Book Movie has been kind enough to share some of artist Michael Anthony Jackson’s visual designs for the feature. In them, we see some giant, spiderlike Mechwolves chasing down humans. Will we see any of this in an updated take on the story should Spielberg ever get it off the ground? Only time will tell…

Read an unofficial synopsis for the film, then check out some of the storyboards for the film. You can find more over at Comic Book Movie.

In the future, robots have been created to serve Mankind. Archos, the 14° version of an advanced Artificial Intelligence developed by the U.S. government, continuously deleted for displaying hostility towards humans, escapes from being destroyed and soon becomes a virus, downloading itself into every piece of A.I.-controlled technology in the planet, leading to a worldwide robot uprising where the humans caught in the chaos struggle to survive.
