The film stars John David Washington, Gemma Chan, Ken Watanabe, Sturgill Simpson, Allison Janney, and Madeleine Yuna Voyles (in her film debut). Set in 2055 after a nuclear detonation in Los Angeles and a war against artificial intelligence, an ex-special forces agent is recruited to hunt down and kill the “Creator,” who has developed a mysterious weapon with the power to end the war. In this episode hosts Michael Shields and Douglas Grant discuss the film tributes that Gareth Edwards employs within The Creator while tipping their hat to the gifted director’s science fiction worldbuilding prowess. They talk about the remarkable film debut of Madeleine Yuna Voyles, Allison Janney’s foray into action films, the thoughtful social commentary present in the film, the best use of Radiohead’s music in film and television, and so much more.
