Adapted from a novel by Daniel H. Wilson, the plot revolves around mankind's creation of artificial intelligence.

The new intelligence, called Archos, then takes steps to destroy the human race to protect the Earth, with small pockets of resistance fighting to survive.

It's set for release in April next year.

The Australian actor has landed a clutch of top roles in a very short time, appearing as Thor in the Kenneth Branagh comic book adaptation for Marvel, and then in 'Cabin In The Woods', 'The Avengers' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman'.

He's currently filming Thor sequel 'The Dark World', due for release next year.
