SUPERINTELLIGENCE (2020)
Starring Melissa McCarthy, James Corden, Bobby Cannavale, Brian Tyree Henry, Sam Richardson, Sarah Baker, Karan Soni, Usman Ally, Michael Beach and Jean Smart. Directed by Ben Falcone.

Nothing extraordinary ever happens to Carol Peters, so when she starts getting snarky backtalk from her TV, phone and microwave, she thinks she’s being punked. Or losing her mind. In fact, the world’s first superintelligence has selected her for observation, taking over her life...with a bigger, more ominous plan to take over everything. Now Carol is humanity’s last chance before this artificial intelligence-with- an-attitude decides to pull the plug.
