Superintelligence

In cinemas soon
Melissa McCarthy headlines the action comedy “Superintelligence,” directed by Ben Falcone, and starring Bobby Cannavale and James Corden.

Nothing extraordinary ever happens to Carol Peters (McCarthy), so when she starts getting snarky backtalk from her TV, phone and microwave, she thinks she’s being punked. Or losing her mind. In fact, the world’s first superintelligence has selected her for observation, taking over her life…with a bigger, more ominous plan to take over everything. Now Carol is humanity’s last chance before this artificial intelligence-with-an-attitude decides to pull the plug.

The starring cast also includes Brian Tyree Henry (TV’s “Atlanta,” “Widows”), and Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “Life Itself”).       

McCarthy and Falcone are producing, alongside Rob Cowan, whose credits include the Falcone/McCarthy comedy “Tammy” and the “Conjuring” films.  “Superintelligence” is written by Steve Mallory, who additionally serves as an executive producer alongside Aaron Gilbert, and Jason Cloth. 

Falcone’s creative behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Barry Peterson (“22 Jump Street,” “Game Night”); editor Tia Nolan (“How to be Single” TV’s “Angie Tribeca”); production designer Jefferson Sage, who has worked with McCarthy on several films, including  “Spy,” “The Heat,” and “Bridesmaids”; and costume designer Louise Mingenbach (the “Hangover” and “X-Men” franchises). 

“Superintelligence” is filming on location in and around Atlanta, Georgia.

The film is scheduled for release on December 25, 2019. 

A New Line Cinema presentation of an On The Day Production, “Superintelligence” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
