I, Robot

Prop Chicago Tribune Newspaper

Stock #40516

A newspaper used in the production of the sci-fi thriller I, Robot. Police Detective Del Spooner (Will Smith) is a cop in Chicago assigned the investigation of Dr Alfred Lanning (James Cromwell), who falls from a balcony under dubious circumstances. His investigation leads to the implication of the robot Sonny (Alan Tudyk), not realising the plot behind is death is far more deadly to the human race.

This style of newspaper can be seen being carried by the people of Chicago as Detective Spooner makes his way to work through the city’s thronging populous. The front cover of the Chicago Tribune newspaper features a photograph of Lance Robertson (Bruce Greenwood) with the headline “USR Hopes To Have NS5 In Every Home”. The front-page story details USR’s efforts to market the robots, with secondary stories below the fold. The internal pages are filled with filler content, while the back page has weather reports and a futuristic advert for Source Water.

Lightly used with only minor wear and creasing, the newspaper remains in very good condition. The newspaper measures 56cm x 32cm (22" x 12.5") when unfolded.
