Adam meets the titular character from the new film 'I Am Mother', and surprisingly, this robot is actually an incredible practical costume fabricated by Weta Workshop. Luke Hawker, the lead on the build who also performed as Mother, shows us how this complex suit works and what it takes to transform into a mechanical character.

Lol i could tell someone was in the suit the first time it started running. You could kind of see between it but that didn’t make it any less terrifying

i thot it was someone wearing a green screen suit then put on a costume then green screened it to make the arms disappear then replace it with cgi so it looks thinner

I thought the scene where Mother is stuck in the door was CGI and her other scenes were practical.

Hey Adam I have a question were has Mith busters sorry for the bad English my auto correct is strict AF

Genuinely thought, watching the film, that Weta had pulled another photo-real CGI character out of the bag. So this is just... Weta really is top of their game.

Great suit. It's a shame the movies storyline was shit and predictable like every other hostage movie.

What's so terrifying about the way Mother runs?

2 days ago

I didn't think the robot running was that scary, although I was holding onto the faint hope that Mother wasn't evil.
