VOTD: Yelchin Is An Android In Short Film”Rise”

“Star Trek” actor Anton Yelchin and frequent film baddie Rufus Sewell have lent their talents to “Rise,” a five-minute short piece from filmmaker David Karlak which serves as a proof-of-concept work that could be turned into a feature.

The story is set in a near future when sentient robots become more advanced than the human race and end up fighting against them. Karlak has reportedly been working on developing “Rise” at Warner Bros. since 2012 and have only just allowed him to debut this short to the world.
