Gillian Anderson to promote Robot Overlords at MCM London Comic Con

Robot Overlords (Gillian Anderson and Callan McAuliffe)Taking part in an on-stage panel for the British sci-fi film Robot Overlords at MCM London Comic Con this May will be the film’s star Gillian Anderson, and the writer/director Jon Wright.

The film tells how humans are left confined to their homes after losing the war against robots. The humans are implanted with a tracking system so that the robots can keep an eye on everyone. If anyone steps outside, it could result in being killed by a huge Sentry. Amid the ruins a small group of kids led by Sean Flynn (Callan McAuliffe) have found a way to temporarily power down their implants. They then start a human resistance. But hot on their heels is their former teacher turned robot collaborator Mr Smythe (Ben Kingsley), and his captive Kate Flynn (Gillian Anderson).

Gillian Anderson is most known for her role as Dana Scully on The X-Files (which she is also set to reprise later this year). She has also starred in the series Bleak House, The Fall and Hannibal and appeared in the films The Last King of Scotland and Johnny English Reborn.

Writer and director Jon Wright won a BBC Talent Award for his short film The Librarian’s Dream, and went on to make the British horror film Tormented. He then followed that up with the horror-comedy Grabbers.

The Robot Overlords panel will take place at MCM London Comic Con at 5pm on Friday 22 May.
