Been really digging what I have seen lately on the the upcoming “Automata” trailer starring Antonio Banderas! Can you believe it?

The only problem is after an hour inside the body it’s immune system will be able to detect them. Now imagine this movie made in 1966-no cg. You might think it’d be a simply ridiculous looking movie.
