HOBOKEN, NJ - Greetings, normal humans.

The robot apocalypse gets a sneak preview here in Hoboken, as Netflix is executing a promo takeover of the Valero 425 Newark Street (at Observer) for their upcoming release, The Mitchells v. The Machines.

The Mitchells v. The Machines is an animated film in which a family on a cross-country road trip is left to fight an army of machines in a struggle for world dominance—think Vacation meets Terminator, as a cartoon. Starring Danny McBride, Abbi Jacobson, Maya Rudolph, The Mitchells v. The Machines will be released on Netflix this Friday, April 30.
