Movie About the Devil, that Made $666,666 at Box Office, Under Fire for Using AI


by Alana Mastrangelo, Breitbart:

The indie horror movie Late Night With The Devil raked in $666,666 on Sunday at the box office in the United States, despite facing boycotts over the use of AI-generated imagery in the film.

Late Night With The Devil made that exact amount on March 24, with the film’s overall earning since its opening last week reaching $2.8 million, according to a report by Dazed.


The horror flick, meanwhile, is frightening people in more than one way, as those who work in entertainment worry about the future of filmmaking and what their roles in the industry will look like in the wake of AI.

Watch the trailer below:

Late Night With The Devil, starring David Dastmalchian, is about “a live television broadcast in 1977 goes horribly wrong, unleashing evil into the nation’s living rooms,” according to the film’s IMDb page.

Notably, the movie has been facing boycott calls and review bombing — not due to its devilish vibes, but because of the use of AI technology in the film.

Viewers have pointed out that AI detectors flagged some of the imagery in the film’s fictional live television broadcast as AI-generated, citing a dancing skeleton and a “We’ll be right back” message displayed during the fictional show’s commercial breaks.
