25 best robot movies ever
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
The internet’s Star Wars quota may already be full, but that doesn’t mean we can’t tip a hat to George Lucas’s first instalment for the introduction of two of the best known robots in film, inspired by the bumbling peasants Tahei and Matashichi from Akira Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress (1958). The gloriously camp C-3PO buddied up with beeping projector-on-wheels R2-D2 for the first time in A New Hope. Robotic banter at its best.
