Watch out, nasty robots! BigBug, the new film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, is revealed in a crazy trailer. This futuristic satire will be available on February 11 on Netflix.
Eight years after his last film The Extravagant Voyage of the young and prodigious TS Spivet, Jean-Pierre Jeunet returns with a new feature film which promises to make sparks. In production since early 2020, BigBug can finally see the light of day thanks to Netflix after the refusals of other producers and distributors suffered by the director of the Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain.
With Guillaume Laurant as co-writer, Jean-Pierre Jeunet tackles robots and offers a hilarious comedy on artificial intelligence, its faults but also the humanity that sometimes emerges from it. BigBug is set in 2050, in a strangely vintage world but resolutely advanced in terms of technology.
Humans swear by artificial intelligence allowing them to satisfy their every need and desire and rely on their indoor robots to make their lives simpler. But when the last generation of androids revolt and wreak havoc in the city, the interior robots of a small residential area decide to protect their humans by locking them in their homes …
According to the trailer unveiled by Netflix, BigBug will follow the forced cohabitation of an atypical family and their intrusive neighbors. This satirical comedy seems especially to focus on telling the real madness of humans when they are trapped and they sink into collective hysteria. All under the bewildered gaze of the robots.
For BigBug, Jean-Pierre Jeunet brought together a hell of a cast: Dominique Pinon, Elsa Zylberstein, Isabelle Nanty, Stéphane De Groodt, Claude Perron, Youssef Hajdi, Claire Chust, François Levantal, Alban Lenoir, Sébastien Gill and the voice of André Dussollier .
BigBug will be available on Netflix on February 11.
