14 years ago today (June 29) Steven Spielbergs Artificial Intelligence, based on a story from Stanley Kubrick, went on general release in the US (after two premieres in New York (June 26, and Los Angeles June 28).
Artificial Intelligence deals with 11 year old David, a human cyborg adopted by Henry and Monica Swinton, two people who are still in mourn over the loss of their own son (who had an incurable disease and has been stored in cryo-stasis, untill that day his desease can be dealt with)
Starring as David is Haley Joel Osment, who, at that time was one of Hollywood's hottest child-actors, espescially since his success with/in The Sixth Sense.

As we had come to expect, the Special Effects Steven used didn't let us down either...
But one of the most amazing effects (as far as I was concerned) must have been Teddy (voiced by Jack Angel).
Happy Birthday A.I.
And don't forget: Steven isn't done with Artificial Intelligence yet: Starting this wednesday (July 1st.) the second season of Extant is about to be launched...
