MOVIEGOERS TO CHAT WITH THE FIRST AI MOVIE CHARACTER TO MAKE THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA DEBUT AS TRUE AI

New technology enables global fans to interact with a fictional character in multiple languages

In anticipation of the worldwide release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Sony Pictures Releasing International (SPRI) is teaming up with artificial intelligence (AI) agency IV.AI to bring the world’s first movie character powered by true AI to social media platforms with the #ChallengeTheRedQueen Messenger Experience.

As the experience launches today, Facebook users can match wits against The Red Queen by messaging the Facebook user The Red Queen on Facebook Messenger. In Russia, the feature will be available on Telegram.

True to the character that fans know and love, the Red Queen's dismissiveness and attitude have been embedded in the personality profile of the experience using AI, so that the audience can have genuine interaction with the character.

In the experience, The Red Queen AI challenges fans of the franchise to test their Resident Evil knowledge and share their accomplishments. This unique messenger experience utilizes automated AI with built-in natural language processing in multiple languages, across a variety of social media platforms enabling fans of the films to interact with the Red Queen character in real time.

Using IV.AI’s sophisticated artificial intelligence ingestion system, the online experience has been created using Resident Evil scripts, films and writers from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Alongside this, IV.AI's natural language processing algorithms and emotional analysis based machine learning transforms this data into a natural feeling, interactive artificial character online.

Sony Pictures, EVP International Marketing Sal Ladestro explains, "As digital marketers and filmmakers, our goal is to find new ways to push the boundaries of emerging technologies in entertainment IP. Seeing the power of artificial intelligence collaborating with talented scriptwriters and filmmakers is just the beginning. We always strive to enable moviegoers to have unique experiences with our characters and this will set an industry standard of how to use messenger platforms to market our movies.”

IV.AI CEO, Vince Lynch describes the bot as, “A new way of approaching entertainment via social media. Using customized AI, we can better understand the nuances of a character and allow fans to play along in real life." Explains Lynch, "I like that we're taking fictional AI that is normally portrayed as dark and tweaking the sentiment to make it fun and entertaining."

The #ChallengeTheRedQueen experience will go live today and be available to fans in the US, Australia, United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, and Russia. Fans can find the experience through Facebook Messenger and Telegram by following links –
◦ English: m.me/TheRedQueenBot/
◦ Spanish (Latin America): m.me/LaReinaRojaBot/
◦ Spain (Castilian): m.me/LaReinaRojaES
◦ Russian: https://telegram.me/ObitelZlabot


Resident Evil: The Final Chapter picks up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, in which Alice (Milla Jovovich) is the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead. Now, she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. The film is written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
