Sony Pictures

Blumhouse Productions and Sony Pictures has released the trailer for “Afraid,” a film that can best be described as a contained thriller involving John Cho and his family vs. a Siri-esque A.I. assistant.

In the film, Cho’s Curtis and his family are selected to test a revolutionary new home device: a digital family assistant called AIA.

Taking smart home to the next level, once the unit and all its sensors and cameras are installed in their home, AIA seems able to do it all.

She learns the family’s behaviors and begins to anticipate their needs. Soon she starts to overstep her boundaries, from bribing the children to wiping the internet of a leaked private video.

As things escalate, she makes sure that nothing – and no one – gets in her family’s way.

Katherine Waterston, Havana Rose Liu, Lukita Maxwell, David Dastmalchian, and Keith Carradine co- star in the film which has been written and directed by Chris Weitz.

Weitz, Jason Blum and Andrew Miano produce. “Afraid” is set to arrive in cinemas on August 30th.
