Melissa McCarthy headlines the romantic comedy “Superintelligence,” directed by Ben Falcone, and starring Bobby Cannavale and James Corden. Nothing extraordinary ever happens to Carol Peters (McCarthy), 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 artificial superintelligence has chosen to study and observe Carol’s attempt to romantically reconcile with her former boyfriend to better understand the human condition. Soon, the all-powerful entity takes over her life…with ominous plans to take over the world. Now, Carol is potentially humanity’s last chance before this AI-with-an-attitude decides to pull the plug. The starring cast also includes Brian Tyree Henry (TV’s “Atlanta,” “Widows”), and Jean Smart (TV’s “Fargo,” “Life Itself”). McCarthy and Falcone are producing, alongside Rob Cowan, whose credits include the Falcone/McCarthy comedy “Tammy,” “Aquaman” and the “Conjuring” films. “Superintelligence” is written by Steve Mallory. Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Mallory, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Cloth are the executive producers. Falcone’s creative behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Barry Peterson (“22 Jump Street,” “Game Night”); editor Tia Nolan (“How to be Single,” TV’s “Angie Tribeca”); production designer Jefferson Sage, who has worked with McCarthy on several films, including “Spy,” “The Heat,” and “Bridesmaids”; and costume designer Louise Mingenbach (“Life of the Party,” the “Hangover” and “X-Men” franchises). The music is by Fil Eisler, who most recently scored Falcone’s “Life of the Party.” New Line Cinema Presents, in Association with BRON Creative, an On The Day Production, a Ben Falcone Film, “Superintelligence.” It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and released in theaters beginning 19 December 2019.
