Simu Liu and Sterling K. Brown Rave about Jennifer Lopez in ‘Atlas’

In a recent interview, lead stars Simu Liu and Sterling K. Brown had nothing but praise for Jennifer Lopez, calling her an “icon” and a “treat” to work with on their sci-fi action film “Atlas.” The film is set in a not-so-distant future where Lopez plays a brilliant data analyst who must use artificial intelligence to save Earth from the first-ever AI terrorist.

Liu, known for his role in “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” portrays the renegade android Harlan, while Brown, who has starred in “American Fiction” and “Black Panther,” takes on the role of Colonel Banks. The movie, which is now available for streaming on Netflix, explores themes of trust, technology, and the role of AI in our lives and work.

During the interview, both actors shared their favorite scenes with Lopez. Brown recalled a vulnerable moment they shared on screen, while Liu mentioned a memorable ad-libbed line from Lopez. Both actors expressed admiration for Lopez’s dedication to her craft and her ability to bring depth to her character.

When asked about their thoughts on AI, Liu emphasized the importance of using AI as an enhancement rather than letting it make decisions for humans. He highlighted the potential dangers of relying too much on artificial intelligence and emphasized the importance of human emotion and creativity in art.

“Atlas” also stars Mark Strong, Gregory James Cohan, Abraham Popoola, and Lana Parrilla, and is directed by Brad Peyton. The film offers a timely exploration of AI and its impact on society, making it a must-watch for fans of sci-fi and action films.
