The documentar­y Roadrunner: A film about Anthony Bourdain has set a record. It earned US$1.9 million at the box office, making it the biggest opening weekend for a film in that category during the pandemic. The movie about the late chef and traveller, shown, also made headlines last week when director Morgan Neville revealed he'd used artificial intelligen­ce to recreate Bourdain's voice. “There were a few sentences that Tony wrote that he never spoke aloud,” a spokespers­on for Focus Features told EW. “With the blessing of his estate and literary agent we used A.I. technology. It was a modern storytelli­ng technique that I used in a few places where I thought it was important to make Tony's words come alive.”
