EXT TROPICAL ISLAND- MIDDAY

From our vantage on the beach we can see an eerily calm sea and hear the wind blowing the palm trees behind us. In the sand we can see a long shadow of a woman walking slowly along the beach Just behind us. gradually over the sound of the waves gently lapping and the trees in the wind we begin to hear her footsteps in the sand. The camera pans to slowly to the right and begins to turn to face into the trees. The noise of the slow footsteps becomes louder.

The camera continues its long pan. We see the woman is in fact a robot, over 6 feet tall, as she now stalks directly past the camera. She is carrying a heavy automatic weapon at her side and wearing a bikini. We also see, along way behind her, in shimmering heat, walking along the beach close under the trees like her, a trail of at least a hundred more robot Amazons. They continue on like this for another long moment, the camera tracking alongside the robot at the head of the group.

Then the sudden sound of helicopters, at first distant but rapidly approaching. The pans left to follow as the robots in the long march react to the sound of the helicopters by running towards the trees.

HEAD ROBOT:

No! Not the trees, girls! Into the water! The water, now!

MARCHING ROBOTS:

[squeals, shouts]

The marching robots begin to change direction and run quickly and elegantly into the water. The head of the pack is the first to reach the water, and dives in gracefully. The others follow and in seconds the beach is cleared as the helicopters come flying just over the treeline.

The helicopters trace the beach. We see the now the sea, still calm, and tiny bubbles come to the surface. The helicopters retreat. A few moments later the head robot begins to surface, followed by the rest of the robots.

int. a cave

shannonfitzpatrick - on 07/12/2010

The cave is gloomily lit, through a combination of flaming torches and sunlight at the entrance. We hear the ocean crashing outside, and the sounds of tropical wildlife, and running water from somewhere close by.

In the cave we see the Head Robot from earlier.

Off-screen voice:

Were any units sighted?

Head robot:

It does not seem so.

OFF-SCREEN VOICE:

Excellent.

Cut to speaker. Another Killer Amazon Robot - a statuesque brunette machine with its back to us.

Beyond we see other Robots engaged in maintenance. The running water is a series of pools the Robots use to cleanse. For sake of efficiency they often work in pairs, scrubbing each others machinery.

The speaker turns towards the camera. We see that although her body is perfect, her face has been ripped apart. Instead of the pleasing symmetry on all the other robots this one is melted, and fizzing.

disfigured robot:

Perhaps we still have the element of surprise in our arsenal?

Once again the pulsating whir of helicopter blades can be heard. The Head Robot spins to face the cave's entrance.

shannonfitzpatrick - on 07/12/2010

Head robot:

It does not seem so.

HEAD ROBOT: (CONT'D)

(shouting) MAN YOUR STATIONS!The robots all leap out of the pools and springs, replacing their bikinis, shaking off any excess water, picking up an array of weaponry.

Montage: killer robots arming selves with a variety of automatic firearms, grenades, rocket launchers etc.

ext. a clifftop in brilliant sunshine.

We see the helicopters circle the forests in the distance as the robots stream out of the cave and climb up the almost vertical cliff face, before assuming positions behind outcrops, boulders, and camouflaging themselves with leaves, etc.

One helicopter does a 180, returning in the direction it came, straight towards the camera and the waiting Amazons. When it is overhead the robots open fire. We see them sweat and their muscles ripple with the effort of controlling the guns.

shannonfitzpatrick - on 07/12/2010

The helicopter spins crashing to the ground where it explodes.

shannonfitzpatrick - on 07/12/2010

The robots cheer and laugh, a celebration strikes up around the flaming wreck. They wave their weapons, dance, hug, and take off their bikinis, as the fire casts flickering light across their sweaty, disheveled bodies.
