BigDog goes to the movies in the Sundance sci-fi drama ‘Young Ones’

Here at Sundance, a new sci-fi drama from writer-director Jake Paltrow is joining that movement. But when it came time to imagine what the machines of tomorrow might look like, Paltrow enlisted the masters of modern robotics: Boston Dynamics. Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) plays Ernest, a widower trying to raise his daughter and son (The Roads Kodi Smit-McPhee) while protecting their tiny water supply at all costs. I’ve always been interested in robotics, Paltrow says, and while I was writing it I went up to Boston Dynamics and got to spend a little time with Marc Raibert and his team. This was back in 2008, when the script was in its early stages and BigDog was the company’s flagship robotic beast.
