In late 2023, the entire nation became aware of a chatbot that could answer all your questions. Many people feared that AI tools like this could lead to job loss.

In 2024, there is an upgrade in AI technology where AI can create videos. OpenAI's new AI tool, Sora, has again created fear among people in the movie and video creation industries.

This AI tool can generate stunning one-minute videos from natural language prompts, showcasing high-definition visuals. The emergence of such advanced AI videos has prompted questions from netizens about whether AI will take over the movie industry. 

Here are six real examples of movie trailers created using AI tools. Take a look:

The first video in the four-minute-long series, titled 'Chaos Oblivion – Warhammer,' is created by Gregory Mandarano, an AI artist and filmmaker. It has been uploaded on YouTube and starts with the dialogue, 'In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only War, endless war.' The video features stunning visuals and real-time sound effects, achieved through AI tools such as Midjourney, Runway AI, Magnific.AI, and Eleven Labs, as reported by the Indian Express.

The second video trailer, 'World on Fire,' created by Nicholas Neubert, showcases Hollywood star Jared Leto. Neubert, a storyteller who uses AI to create visuals, presents a 1-minute 5-second trailer that begins with space scenes and the dialogue 'Thirty Seconds to Mars.' The visuals and music create a realistic experience, blurring the line between fiction and reality.

Another notable video is the dark comedy short film 'This Is the Plan,' created by digital artist Christopher Fryant. This nearly three-minute-long video uses AI tools such as Midjourney, RunwayML AI, Blender 3D, and a new lip-sync feature from Pika Labs to deliver stunningly realistic dialogue and visuals.

The AI-generated video titled 'FREAKSHOW' by Dustin Hollywood, a photographer using Runway AI, Midjourney, and his imagination, is approximately 1 minute 8 seconds long. The trailer's visuals and sound are so immersive that it is hard to distinguish between reality and AI-generated content.

Lastly, the AI-generated horror movie trailer 'Another,' helmed by Dave Clark, uses stable diffusion and Midjourney to create a chilling atmosphere. The combination of sound, scenes, and camera movements evokes fear and showcases the capabilities of AI in creating captivating visuals.

These videos demonstrate significant advancements in AI video processing models and highlight the potential of AI-backed tools in filmmaking.

While AI can accelerate imagination and execute ideas, human creativity remains integral to filmmaking, making AI a valuable assistant in the industry.
