The Creator First Reactions Are Overwhelmingly Positive
The first press screening for The Creator took place in Hollywood on Monday.
While the full reviews are still coming in, the consensus from the initial reactions to the film are very positive. The film is being called one of the best films of 2023. First reactions also indicate that The Creator could become a science fiction classic.
The film stars John David Washington as Joshua, a retired special forces agent and widow, who is grieving the recent loss of his wife Maya (played by Gemma Chan). Joshua is tasked with finding and killing ‘The Creator’, an elusive mastermind who has developed advanced AI with the power to destroy the world. The cast also includes Ken Watanabe, Allison Janney and Madeleine Yuna Voyles.
Early impressions of the film praise The Creator's originality, which is largely attributed to Gareth Edward's innovative and masterful direction.
The Creator will premiere in UK cinemas on September 29, 2023.
