Netflix has released the official trailer for South Korean filmmaker Yeon Sang-ho’s latest project, “Jung_E,” showing a more in-depth look at the highly anticipated sci-fi film.
On Wednesday, the streaming giant shared a two-minute clip about Jung_E, who is described as an “A.I. [artificial intelligence] combat warrior“ and “humanity’s hope and ultimate weapon.”

According to Netflix, “Jung_E” will take place “in a post-apocalyptic near-future” and follow the story of an AI researcher who tries to stop a civil war by cloning the brain of her military soldier mother.
