Spike Jonze has an upcoming 30-minute short film named I’m Here that will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The trailer for the film showcases love between robots, but I would prefer to see a Mac vs. PC Gangs of New York-style brawl. Sadly, it’s really expensive to just throw PCs and Macs at each other, and certainly not as compelling as what Jonze can create. His movie also has a slightly bigger budget; it’s funded by Absolut Vodka so there will be some product placement, but that company gives a lot of leeway to directors (e.g. their commercials with Zach Galifianakis, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim). I also imagine that Jonze wouldn’t do the film if there was the directive, “The robots must get absolut-ly fucking hammers in every scene. Robots love vodka.”
I’m Here debuts tonight at 8:30pm at the Egyptian Theatre. Steve posted three images from the film, which you can check out here.
