Emilia Clarke’s Pod Generation to arrive in U.S. theatres in August

The Pod Generation first premiered earlier this year at Sundance 2023, and stars Emilia Clarke alongside Oscar-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor. The Sci-fi Romcom arrives in theaters in the US on August 11th and in the Netherlands on August 24th.

What is the Pod Generation about?

Pod Generation is a sci-fi romantic comedy in a world where artificial intelligence is taking over everything. And the newest technology allows couples to share their pregnancy through an artificial womb. Rachel (Emilia Clarke) and Alvy (Chiwetel Ejiofor) are a couple who wish to start their family. Rachel’s employment allows her to experiment with new tools. This futuristic technology allows couples to share a pregnancy by using pods, which are detachable artificial wombs.

How Pod Generation raises ethical questions about artificial pregnancy?

The writer-director, Sophia Barthes, states that the “idea of the artificial womb as either doom or liberation for women is inherently comedic material.” Fionnuala Jamison, managing director of MK2 Films, which is handling the international distribution of the film, told Variety that The Pod Generation is a “captivating near-future story with a distinctly feminine twist that really haunts as much as it entertains.” She added that it’s “raising ethical questions about where technology is taking us, like once the womb has been commodified, what’s next?”
