“The future of humanity is in her hands,” the opening subtitle reads during the trailer for Atlas, Netflix’s  Sci-Fi thriller starring Jennifer Lopez, for which we can share the first trailer above.

The pic, which opens May 24, follows Atlas Shepherd (Lopez), a brilliant but misanthropic data analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence, who joins a mission to capture a renegade robot with whom she shares a mysterious past. But when plans go awry, her only hope of saving the future of humanity from AI is to trust it.
