6. Mother/Android (2021)

Directed by Mattson Tomlin, this post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie shows the arduous and perilous journey of a couple, Georgia (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Sam (Algee Smith), who are expecting a baby, as they make their way to the fortified city of Boston while being hunted by rebellious self-aware androids manufactured by Raster Robotics. Whether and, if so, how they survive the journey, assisted by the mysterious savior Arthur (Raúl Castillo), and whether the baby gets to live or not are what we find out in this drama.

5. Automata (2014)

Set in the aftermath of a solar flare that has led to Earth’s ongoing desertification, ‘Automata’ showcases a society where humans and robots co-exist. These quantum robots have been manufactured by the ROC Corporation, whose agent Jacq Vaucan (Antonio Banderas) comes across a curious case of a robot modifying itself, something that is against its protocol. As he digs deeper, the case gets more and more complex, seemingly underscored by a dark secret that can worsen the fate of humanity, which is already facing extinction. To be a part of Vaucan’s investigation, you can watch ‘Automata,’ directed by Gabe Ibáñez, right here.

4. Simulant (2023)

Directed by April Mullen, this sci-fi follows Faye (Jordana Brewster), who uses a simulant, an AI android, made in her husband Evan’s (Robbie Amell) image to get over his death. As expected, she cannot show affection to the robot no matter how much she acts like her husband. The robot (also played by Robbie Amell) realizes this and reaches out to a hacker, Casey (Simu Liu), to remove all the limitations that are in his thoughts. Unfortunately, this triggers an AI uprising, and the authorities greenlight a manhunt led by Agent Kessler (Sam Worthington) to eliminate such conscious simulants. How things turn out for the simulant Evan and Faye is what we find out in this fast-paced drama. You can stream it here.

3. The Pod Generation (2023)

This Sophie Barthes directorial takes place in an apparently not-too-distant future where AI is commonplace. Couples can choose to have pod babies through artificially controlled wombs to rid women of the hassle that comes with pregnancy. The tech firm Pegazus owns the Womb Center. It takes the reproductive cells from the mother and father and then uses state-of-the-art tech to develop a human embryo within each artificial egg-shaped womb. As for the plot, we have a couple, Rachel (Emilia Clarke) and Alvy (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who struggle to cope with the arrival of their parenthood, which is new for both people in different ways.

As a war rages on between Western nations and the AI, we follow U.S-Army-sergeant-turned-cleanup-crew-member Joshua Taylor (Washington), who Colonel Howell and General Andrews hire to locate and destroy a new super weapon that can cause the AI to win the war. Taylor does track down the weapon only to find out that it’s a child who can control technology remotely. Naming her Alphie, Taylor decides to protect her. But for how long? To find out, you can stream ‘The Creator’ here.
