Villains in sci-Fi movies.
And this one’s no exception.
Villains are a staple of Hollywood sci-futures, but the genre has also seen a proliferation of movies with less than stellar plot, but with a strong sense of humor and a strong desire to explore its ideas.
That’s what “Villas Maya” does.
Written by a team of writers, the film follows a young woman named Eva as she seeks to make it in the world of artificial intelligence and artificial intelligence research.
Eva is the son of a computer programmer who has a family fortune in tech stocks and wants to get in on the game, but she’s also struggling with her own complicated relationships with her family and her own future.
She’s not alone.
She also happens to be a woman of color who wants to make a difference in the future.
The story is told through the lens of Eva, and that lens is a bit different than that of most sci-fy movies.
The stories in sci/fi tend to be set in a future that is set in the 21st century, which is why we’re seeing so many movies with a female lead.
And it’s why “Vills Maya,” a sci-tech movie from the writer-director of “Scooby-Doo” and “The Last Unicorn,” was the first sci-fu movie to get a female cast.
It’s a big deal to see women get the chance to play major roles in sci flicks, especially when you consider that the majority of Hollywood films about women in science fiction are directed by men.
That means the casting of a woman to play a key part in a sci fi film is more often than not met with a lot of resistance.
But in this case, it’s a sign that a sci fiction movie about technology has made a big step forward.
“Villas maya,” which will be released in theaters on April 25, is based on the novel by Miguel Sapochnik, and features an all-female cast, including Eva.
And that’s a pretty significant development.
A movie about a woman taking on the world’s biggest corporation, and taking on it head on?
This is sci fi movie heaven.
