The trailer opens with a shot of robots destroying the world in search of the last humans. The Mitchells then approach these robots in their 1993 station wagon, ready to fight and save the world. Then we meet Katie, the daughter of the family, who was a bit of the black sheep in the family before the robot uprising. It’s a mix of light-hearted, apocalyptic action and a heartwarming story about family bonds. There’s also a lot of humor in the shots. Not to mention a pug who is destined to become a rising star.

The Mitchells vs. The Machines has the creative Katie Mitchell at the helm. She’s been accepted to the film school of her dreams and can’t wait to leave home. But her nature-loving father insists on taking her to school with the whole family on one last forced road trip to bond. Just when things don’t seem to be getting any better, the family suddenly finds themselves in the middle of a robot uprising. Everything from smartphones to room bass to mechas are used to capture every person on the planet. It’s up to the Mitchells, including cheerful mom Linda, quirky little brother Aaron, their pug Monchi and two friendly but simple robots, to save humanity.
This film was originally produced by Sony Pictures and was scheduled for a theatrical release. However, when the cinema closed for most of last year, Sony decided to sell the film to Netflix. Sony was planning to release a movie called Connected. Netflix has decided to go back to the original title. The deal is worth more than $100 million and includes the rights for China. Mitchells vs. Cars comes out on the 30th. April.
