The Creator confirms digital release date20th Century Studios

The Creator is set for digital release next week in the US, after welcoming over $101 million at the box office.

Directed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Gareth Edwards, "the most stunning sci-fi in years" finds John David Washington in a technologically war-torn future as special forces agent Joshua Taylor, tasked with disposing of an artificial intelligence which is taking the shape of a young child.

20th Century Studios, New Regency and Entertainment One will launch the movie on digital platforms on Tuesday, November 14, before it becomes available in 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD formats on Tuesday, December 12.

At the time of its theatrical release, Edwards himself (who broke big in Hollywood with his 2010 indie Monsters) explained The Creator's concepts to The Wrap, focussing on the sequence where memories can be resurrected for digital viewing.

"One of the concepts in the movie was trying to create an AI brain. When I was writing it, it felt that we were very far away from doing that. I felt like it would maybe make sense that you could scan a brain and digitally recreate it without understanding how it worked, you could basically copy and paste a person," said the filmmaker.

"The second you have that technology, there's some interesting things you can do with it. Like, could you scan someone who had just passed away and paste them and get them working again? I liked the idea that you can do that, but you only get 10-20 seconds."

For those fans of an eagle-eyed nature, there's a Star Wars Easter egg in the movie worth looking out for.

"We have an Easter egg of K-2SO in the movie as well," revealed VFX supervisor Jay Cooper when speaking to The Direct, in reference to the security droid first introduced in Rogue One.

The Creator is still in cinemas.
