    Nice concept, though the one of the episodes in the Animatrix had an almost exact story. You know, the first homcide committed by a robot. This lead to the machines revolting. Anyways, this still looks cool. Kind of reminds me of Minority Report as well.

    Pardon my ignorance, but I saw the trailer for the 1st time yesterday, and I thought: "hey, looks like they're using a novel by Assimov I read a long time ago...", am I wrong ?

    Sorry, I mistyped, I indeed meant Isaac Asimov (thank you Sazar).
    So, is the story in the film taken (freely or not) from Asimov's books ?

    It was certainly an Asimov story - and since they are using the same title I imagine it must be based on it. I think it was a short story originally maybe and then I believe it went on to become a trilogy or maybe a series he worked on - thoguh I have forgotten the name of that. I am sure someone else will know it in detail though. ;)

    I remember now, the main plot of the movie (if I may say so) must be based on Asimov's novel The Cave of Steel (Les Cavernes d'Acier in my mother tongue), I really loved this novel and its continued The Naked Sun, I hove the movie will be true enough to the books... :)

    The concept of the film is taken from the books, the concept of the robots as part of human lives and the three laws of robotics, but the content of the film will be nothing like that of the books, as said by the director and stars

    Yeah, I didn't think the movie would follow the books.
