A.I. Artificial Intelligence is a 2001 sci fi film, dvd and Blu-ray are set for release on April 12, 2011. The film is directed, produced and co-written by Steven Spielberg based on Brian Aldiss' short story "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long", the film stars Haley Joel Osment, Frances O'Connor, Jude Law, Sam Robards, Jake Thomas and William Hurt.

Plot: Global warming has led to ecological disasters all over the world, and a drastic reduction of the human population. Humanity's best efforts to maintain civilization have led to the creation of new robots known as mechas, advanced humanoid robots capable of emulating thoughts and emotions. David (Haley Joel Osment), an advanced prototype model created by Cybertronics, is designed to resemble a human child and to virtually feel love for its human owners. They test their creation on one of their employees, Henry Swinton (Sam Robards), and his wife Monica (Frances O'Connor). The Swintons have a son, Martin (Jake Thomas), who has been placed in suspended animation until a cure can be found for his rare disease. Although Monica is initially frightened of David, she eventually warms to him after activating his imprinting protocol, which irreversibly causes David to feel love for her as a child loves a parent. As he continues to live with the Swintons, David is befriended by Teddy (Jack Angel), a robotic teddy bear, who takes upon himself the responsibility of David's well being.

Martin is suddenly cured and brought home; a sibling rivalry ensues between Martin and David. This includes Martin telling David to cut off a lock of Monica's hair in the middle of the night, and that Monica will surely love him then. When David does this, Monica and Henry wake up and are very upset. At a pool party on Martin's birthday, one of Martin's friends activates David's self-protection programming by stinging him with the point of a knife. David clings to Martin, after which both of them fall into the swimming pool, with David sinking to the bottom while still holding Martin in his arms. Martin is saved from drowning, but Henry in particular is shocked by David's actions. Henry convinces Monica to return David to Cybertronics, where David will then be destroyed. On the way however, Monica decides to abandon David in the forest (alongside Teddy) to live as an unregistered mecha so that he will not be destroyed. David is captured for an anti-mecha Flesh Fair, an event where useless mechas are destroyed before cheering crowds. David is nearly killed, but the crowd is swayed by his realistic nature (David, unlike other mechas, pleads for his life) and he escapes, along with Gigolo Joe (Jude Law), a male prostitute mecha on the run after being framed for murder.

The two set out to find the Blue Fairy, who David remembers from the story The Adventures of Pinocchio. He is convinced that the Blue Fairy will transform him into a human boy, so Monica will love him and take him back. Joe and David make their way to the decadent metropolis of Rouge City. Information from a holographic volumetric display answer engine called "Dr. Know" (Robin Williams) eventually leads them to the top of the Rockefeller Center in the flooded ruins of Manhattan, using a flying submersible vehicle called an amphibicopter they stole from police, still hot on Joe's tail. David meets his human creator, Professor Hobby (William Hurt), who excitedly tells David that finding him was a test, which has demonstrated the reality of his love and desire. It also becomes clear that many exemplars of David are already being manufactured, as well as girl versions, causing David to realize that he is not unique. A disheartened David attempts to commit suicide by falling from a ledge into the ocean, but Joe rescues him with the amphibicopter. David tells Joe he saw the Blue Fairy underwater, and wants to go down to her. At that moment, Joe is captured by the authorities with the use of an electromagnet. David and Teddy take the amphibicopter to the fairy, which turns out to be a statue from a submerged attraction at Coney Island. Teddy and David become trapped when the Wonder Wheel falls on their vehicle. Believing the Blue Fairy to be real, David asks to be turned into a real boy, repeating his wish without end, until the ocean freezes.

2000 years later, Manhattan is buried under several hundred feet of glacial ice, and humans are extinct. Mechas have evolved into a highly advanced alien-looking humanoid form. They find David and Teddy, the only two functional mechas who knew living humans. David is revived and he walks to the frozen stiff Blue Fairy statue, which cracks and collapses as he touches it. Using David's memories, the alien-looking humanoid mechas reconstruct the Swinton home, and explain to David via a mecha of the Blue Fairy (Meryl Streep) that he cannot become human. However, they recreate Monica from the lock of her hair which has been saved by Teddy, but she will live for only a single day and the process cannot be repeated. David spends the happiest day of his life with Monica and Teddy, and Monica tells David that she loves him and has always loved him as she drifts to sleep for her final time. David lies down next to her, closes his eyes and goes "to that place where dreams are born".
