The Creator | Teaser Trailer | 20th Century Studios

John David Washington (Tenet) stars as Joshua, an ex-special forces agent mourning the loss of his wife (Eternals’ Gemma Chan). Joshua believes he is not a good person, telling a small child in the trailer that he will not go to heaven. Joshua is recruited to destroy the Creator, the mastermind behind AI that created a deadly weapon. However, Joshua becomes conflicted when he learns the true origins of the weapon.

The official synopsis reads, “Amidst a future war between the human race and the forces of artificial intelligence, Joshua (Washington), a hardened ex-special forces agent grieving the disappearance of his wife (Chan), is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war … and mankind itself. Joshua and his team of elite operatives journey across enemy lines, into the dark heart of AI-occupied territory … only to discover the world-ending weapon he’s been instructed to destroy is an AI in the form of a young child.”
