Superintelligence featurette reflects on the one that got away
Just a week ahead of the film’s debut on WarnerMedia’s streaming platform, HBO Max has unveiled a new featurette from the forthcoming action rom-com Superintelligence starring Melissa McCarthy which sees the cast explore the concept of the one that got away and its tie to the plot of the film. The featurette can be viewed in the player below!
In the film, when an all-powerful Superintelligence (James Corden) chooses to study the most average person on Earth, “Carol Peters” (Melissa McCarthy), the fate of the world hangs in the balance. As the A.I. decides to enslave, save, or destroy humanity, it’s up to Carol to prove that people are worth saving.
McCarthy and Corden lead a cast that also includes Octavia Spencer, Bobby Cannavale, Brian Tyree Henry, Jean Smart, Sam Richardson, Ben Falcone, who’s also directing and producing with wife McCarthy, Sarah Baker and Karan Soni.
With a “20 for 20 in 20” initiative, HBO Max will highlight and donate $20K to a different good cause daily for 20 days while encouraging others to lend their support along the way. In addition, AT&T helped kick off the campaign with a $1 million contribution to Girls Who Code.
In addition to media appearances by Melissa, on November 13, World Kindness Day, the campaign will celebrate acts of kindness shared across social media. Content can include a post, tagging someone with a kind word, or showing a short video of a random act of kindness. Talent and influencers will help launch the program, encouraging others to participate using the hashtag #20DaysOfKindness.
Users can go to 20daysofkindness.com for more information and to follow the different charities daily. As part of the #20DaysofKindness campaign, Melissa, Ben & HBO Max are also launching a Prizeo charity sweepstakes, giving away a Tesla, a hangout with Melissa & Ben and chances to attend the premiere with all funds raised benefitting Conservation International, World Central Kitchen, and Make-A-Wish.

AT&T helps family, friends, and neighbors connect in meaningful ways every day. Its contribution to Girls Who Code will enable computer science summer programs across the U.S. in 2021, as well as pipeline programs that support girls throughout their educational journey and into the workforce. The AT&T family of companies has supported Girls Who Code and its computer science summer programs since 2012, with financial and in-kind contributions now totaling more than $17 million.
