Today I was thinking about awesome robots and began to realize that we have had some pretty cool robots appear in movies in the past few years. So I decided to make a quick top-5 list. Here is a list of my favorite robots from movies that came out in the 2015 – 2016 time frame.
Movie: Rogue One: A Stars Wars Story
By far my favorite robot on this list is K-2S0. K-2S0 is an Imperial droid that in the move Rogue One was working for the Alliance.
Chappie is a damaged police robot in the self titled movie that takes place in Johannesburg sometime in the near future. Chappie is programmed by his creator, Deon Wilson, with a computer program that can simulate consciousness.
Movie: Stars Wars: The Force Awakens
BB-8 is Poe Dameron’s droid in The Force Awakens. BB-8 is given a map which contains the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker. BB-8’s mission, to deliver the map to the Resistance.
Movie: Terminator Genisys
This robot needs no introduction. He is once again sent to 1984 by Skynet to kill none other than Sarah Connor.
Movie: Avengers: Age of Ultron
In the Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ultron is created by Tony Starks. Starks intent was for this artificial intelligence robot to protect Earth from alien threats. Ultron had other ideas however, and determined that the greatest threat to Earth was humanity itself.
