Genetically Engineered Superhuman in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Morgan’

Produced by Ridley Scott, “Morgan” opens in cinemas nationwide on September 7 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros. Check out the film’s trailer here at ClickTheCity.

Luke Scott, son of highly acclaimed blockbuster maker Ridley Scott (“Alien,” “The Martian”) debuts as director (full-length film) in the sci-fi thriller “Morgan” starring Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Paul Giamatti, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook and Michelle Yeoh.

“Morgan” tells the chilling tale of a creation that escaped in a tightly-guarded facility for artificial intelligence.  A corporate troubleshooter, played by Kate Mara, is sent to the remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.

Scott, from his previous interview with EW reveals that “Morgan” eventually becomes greater that the scientists who created her.  “What Morgan really alludes to is human beings becoming, in a sense, the creator. Not in a traditional religious sense, but an idea that we have the capabilities to become our own creator. And what I suspect could happen — we’ve seen it in all these movies, whether it’s Frankenstein or Metropolis — it’s the creation of a being that is greater than the creator.  That is fascinating to me, and it definitely feels like a next stage of evolution in the real world.”
