Recent movie releases like Ex Machina showed us how the relationship between humans and AI can be tricky, eventually leading to unsatisfactory results. Morgan, a new film directed by Luke Scott (Ridley Scott’s son) once again explores this theme and the trailer shows what we can already expect when humans try to play God with a creation they can’t fully understand.

A corporate risk-management consultant, played by Kate Mara, must evaluate and see if a potentially dangerous AI named Morgan must go on to exist or be terminated. Needless to say, a few of the AI child’s buttons are pushed in the process and she reacts in a way like anyone would when tested in an unpleasant manner. There’s also one big problem the scientists and consultants must deal with. Morgan has some special abilities that could make shutting her off quite the problem. Ideas of nature and nurture also come to play in this original take on the artificial intelligence genre and it will be exciting to see how new director Luke Scott will tackle these subjects on film.

Watch the first trailer here. Morgan is set to open in theaters on September 2.
