Watch a chilling trailer for Star Trek writer's robopocalypse pic

We all know the robopocalypse is coming, what with us foolishly teaching machines to walk, to read and even to duel with lightsabers. But since it'll be a while until that armageddon gets here, it's up to movies to show us what's in store.

Christopher Hatton, who wrote a couple of episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, has both written and directed the upcoming movie Robotropolis, which is about (according to imdb):

A group of reporters are covering the unveiling of a new facility that is completely maintained by robot prototypes. When one of the robots goes haywire, the reporters find themselves not just reporting on the malfunction, but fighting for their lives.

We're not sure whether the full-length movie will be able to live up to the promise of the scary trailer, but we can always hope.

We're also not sure when the film is due to be released, but when we find out, we'll let you know. Meanwhile, check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
