R.U.R.: Genesis


A sexy, retro-futuristic take on the classic Karel Capek tale, starring Chase Masterson, Kipleigh Brown, and Vic Mignogna. Set in the style of an alt-history 1969, this teaser for a full-length feature currently in development depicts a world populated by genetically engineered workers (“artificials”) — perfect, made-to-order people who lack fundamental rights.
