Just based off the one clip I'm curious enough to see the flick. Considering how intriguing the tease is they'd have to drop just an awful trailer to screw up the hype around it.

So like if Nu-Metal fucked Metallica? Sounds like that's what they're going for. Very djenty of them commiting that hard to the worship of the almighty open top string, I dug it.

Eh, I don't mind it. They're efficiently making sure everybody knows that song is still being enjoyed in current day. Eventually that comment will reach peak efficiency when it becomes just a thread of people typing the last two digits of the current year over and over.

Nationwide UBI will likely require a tax on all companies creating or employing AI. Also keep in mind UBI would be replacing welfare and possibly foods stamps creating a massive pool of cash to begin with. A dream scenario would see those funds supplemented even further by a tax on cannabis in conjunction with recreational use being legalized at the federal level.

As for the "life has no meaning without work" argument I just disagree with that completely. First there's the fact that loads of people would still be working even after AI takes over all the knowledge work and even after AI-infused robots take over all the physical work. People would still find meaning in creating art and music despite the fact that AI would also be involved in art and music, people would find meaning in improving themselves physically and mentally. There could be a whole renaissance of people getting back to face-to-face interaction with family and friends given all their free time. People would still want to explore (on Earth, in space and philosophically), science will always have a bleeding edge some folks will want to be on the cusp of. Sports and hobbies, building things there's unlimited potential outside the confines of the wage slavery system we've been shackled to for so long.

Soon enough most knowledge work degrees will be worthless. Personally I'm hoping we can get to this "job-free, UBI for all" future already. Living through the transition is gonna suuuuuck for a lot of people if the usual suspects fight giving people universal basic income while the short-sighted anti-AI luddites keep up with the "AI ain't taking mah jerb!" bullshit at the same time.
