ChatGPT Theatre; Unleashed Fury: Zorb of Destiny

I asked ChatGPT last night to write a synopsis of a fictional film starring Nic Cage. The prompt asked ChatGPT to include co-stars, the director, production company and even a fictional review and box office numbers for the film.

This is what I got.

Gary Thompson (Nicolas Cage) is an eccentric inventor and thrill-seeker who stumbles upon a clandestine government research facility while zorbing down a mountainside. Little does he know, the facility is conducting experiments involving a powerful mind-altering substance known as “Zorbonium.” A chance collision ruptures the Zorbonium container, engulfing Gary and his zorb in a cloud of the experimental substance.

As Gary’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic and his zorb transforms into a devastating weapon, a team of government agents is dispatched to capture and contain him. Agent Smith (Jason Statham), a no-nonsense operative, takes the lead in the mission to neutralize Gary’s rampage and uncover the truth behind the Zorbonium experiment.

Meanwhile, Dr. Evelyn Hartman (Charlize Theron), a brilliant scientist, becomes fascinated by Gary’s unique abilities and offers her expertise to Agent Smith’s team. Alongside them is Agent Carter (Idris Elba), a skilled field operative who brings a mix of intuition and adaptability to the mission.

Caught in the midst of the chaos is Lucy Thompson (Chloe Grace Moretz), Gary’s resourceful teenage daughter. As the situation escalates, Lucy becomes an unexpected asset, utilizing her intelligence and quick thinking to navigate the dangerous landscape created by her father’s zorbing-induced powers.

General Jonathan Porter (Kurt Russell) oversees the operation, providing strategic guidance and wrestling with the moral implications of the government’s experiments. And in the shadows is Professor Adrian Miles (Benedict Cumberbatch), a brilliant yet eccentric scientist who holds vital knowledge about the dangers and potential of Zorbonium.

As the battle between Gary and the government intensifies, the lines between hero and villain blur. Unbeknownst to all, the Zorbonium not only grants extraordinary abilities but also unlocks Gary’s latent power to manipulate reality itself. The climactic showdown between Gary and Agent Smith, amidst a world where buildings shift and gravity defies logic, sets the stage for an epic conclusion that will leave audiences speechless.
