Tau trailer: Gary Oldman is smarter than your average house
For anyone confused by the title to this post, so you should be. What it actually means is Gary Oldman voices a smart house in tech sci-fi thriller Tau. It's another new release from Netflix that will land on the platform soon and going by the trailer it all looks a little ropey. It's a one location story that looks like an episode cut from the last series of Black Mirror, barely giving off the look and feel of an actual film. Give the trailer for Tau a go above and see what you think of it.
Kidnapped by an inventor who uses her as a test subject to perfect his robotic AI, a street-smart young woman tries to escape her high-tech prison. It becomes a choice between either doing as the smart house says, or facing the terrible consequences. Not much of a choice when all is said and done.
First time Uruguayan director Federico D'Alessandro has head storyboard artist and animatic supervisor for a number of Marvel films over the past decade, and Oldman is joined by Maika Monroe and Ed Skrein in the small cast.
Tau lands on Netflix on June 29nd 2018.
