Watch an Exclusive Clip From Robot and Frank

In the slightly futuristic Robot and Frank, out August 17, Frank Langella faces off with a robot (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard and henceforth known as the SarsBot) hired by his son (James Marsden) as a newfangled domestic caregiver. As it turns out, robot sidekicks are fairly common in the future — or common enough that Susan Sarandon, local librarian and love interest to Frank, works with another bot named Mr. Darcy. SarsBot and Mr. Darcy meet for the first time in this exclusive clip, which teaches us that robots are far more interested in ruining dates than in socializing with each other. (Also: your mini-fridge will someday be useful again.) Enjoy!
