With Transformors: Age of Extinction at the top of theater box offices this weekend, let’s take some time to look back at some other famous robots in film.
The robots in this list are both intelligent machines that can easily be a human’s best friend or worst enemy, and advanced technology that aren't self-aware.
In Transformers, we see robots that are trying to destroy the human race and those who are willing to save it. They can make great sidekicks or tools, as long as they don’t turn against us. Robots can also take on any shape, size or form. Some robots take a humanoid look while others can take the form of giant dinosaurs. Don't forget about the robots who can provide comic relief. Who doesn’t laugh at the robot duo C3PO and R2D2 in Star Wars?
Not all of these movies are centered around robots, but they include at least one robot who is worth mentioning on this list. Whether they choose to help the humans or try to destroy them, we still love to watch them on the big screen.
Here are the droids you are looking for.
