A trailer for new sci-fi thriller Simulant starring The Flash's Robbie Amell and Avatar's Sam Worthington has landed, and fans are in for an action-packed AI adventure.

Set in a world where humans cohabitate with human-like AI robots, the trailer opens up with Evan (Robbie Amell) looking lovingly at his wife Faye (Fast & Furious' Jordana Brewster) as they set out for the day in their car.

Their tender moment is cut short as the car is involved in a fatal car crash.

The trailer cuts to Evan waking up in bed, seemingly like nothing has happened, but we soon learn that he is now a humanoid AI hybrid.

On his journey to reunite with his wife and try to become his former human self, he finds himself in an all-or-nothing battle with government agent Kessler (Sam Worthington).

Kessler wants nothing more than to stop the rise of the machine consciousness, but will he be able to stop Evan and any other humanoids who get in his way?
