Sounds like it was generated straight from the Netflix algorithm (i.e. MBB, Chris Pratt, Russo Bros, sci-fi, robot companion, etc.)

The same algorithm that can't tell me what I want to watch tonight

It's based on an ArtBook by a Simon Stalenhag, a Swedish artist.

It's Suitably weird to be a new IP

"In late 1997, a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot travel west through a strange USA, where the ruins of gigantic battle drones litter the countryside along with the discarded trash of a high tech consumerist society in decline. As their car nears the edge of the continent, the world outside the window seems to unravel at an ever faster pace, as if somewhere beyond the horizon, the hollow core of civilization has finally caved in."

You mean Chris Hemsworth. Pratt is on Amazon.

Hot take but I don’t think MBB is a good actor. Like at all.

all it needs is Ryan Reynolds and a popular comedic actor

There is no algorithm.

It’s Cartman in a cardboard robot disguise.

Chris Pratt is more in Amazon's algorithm. I saw a trailer for his new show(movie?) and just assumed it was that other show he's in where he plays a generic soldier type guy

The Electric State:

The story centers on an orphaned teenager (Brown) who traverses an American west that is reminiscent of a retro-future with a sweet but mysterious robot and an eccentric drifter in search of her younger brother.

Chris Pratt is also in talks to join and the budget is over 200 Million (Source)

I've got the book. They damn well need $200m.

Imagine it like annihilation. But it's the entire US and it's all technology stuff, not biological.

Netflix really needs to rethink their strategy if it includes continuing to pay 200 million dollars a pop for shit like Red Notice and Russo Bros movies.

I feel like we need less Chris Pratt. His movies have been pretty weak lately. I feel like ever since that one (can’t remember the name) on Amazon where he goes into the future to fight aliens, he’s been on a decline. Jurassic World was ass, and I’m hearing that the terminal one he just put out is awful too. Not sure if it’s him or the movies just not being good, but I’ve gotten kinda burnt out on seeing him in stuff lately lol and it sucks because I actually like him.

for those looking for a comparison (and im sure there are better ones, but just off the top of my head)..Dunkirk's budget was 100 mil. And the first season of Westworld was 100 mil.
