Check out the first trailer for the British thriller The Machine, about two researchers who develop an intelligent gynoid — only to have the British government try to turn her into a weapon. And you know how well that usually turns out.

The Machine will be in theaters April 25 and on VOD on April 8.

Here's the synopsis:

Two computer programmers fall in love as they create the first-ever piece of self-aware artificial intelligence, designed to help humanity. But things go terribly wrong when the British Government steals their breakthrough and teaches it to become a robotic weapon.
