A.I. (movie)

Redirected from A.I.: Artificial Intelligence

A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001) was the last project that filmmaker Stanley Kubrick worked on.

Kubrick had long planned to film A.I. but had been putting it off until he was confident that the effects could be handled convincingly, all the while working on the script in close cooperation with Steven Spielberg. After many years of exchanging ideas about the project Kubrick became convinced that this film needed Spielbergs 'different kind of sensitivy' and urged him to direct the film. Spielberg finally accepted, using Kubrick's storyboard, and writing the script[?] himself.

Kubrick died before the film shooting started.

The movie stars:

It was adapted by Kubrick, Ian Watson[?] and Spielberg from the short story Supertoys Last All Summer Long by Brian Aldiss.

It was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Effects, Visual Effects and Best Music, Original Score.

The movie had an unusual publicity campaign consisting of a "game" involving approximately 30 interlinked websites. The websites purported to be sites for a number of organisations (universities, businesses, and personal home pages) set in the fictional world of the movie in the 22nd century. Hints to the websites' existence were contained in posters, trailers and other movie publicity materials. This type of game is known as an Alternate Reality Game.

By studying the information on the sites, a story set in the world of the movie involving the murder of one Evan Chan became apparent. Solving various puzzles and hints, some involving email, physical meetings in New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago, telephone calls and telephone answering services, allowed the unlocking of more websites which gradually revealed the story of whodunnit and why.
