It looks like a scene out of a "Star Wars" spoof: Frank Langella and a Storm Trooper-esque robot.

However, this is far from the intergalactic space tale. Instead, its "Robot & Frank," a film that takes place in Cold Spring, New York in "the near future" where robots aid humans in everyday tasks. Here, the titular duo start off as adversaries -- the robot is programmed to help Frank have a healthier life -- and end up as partners in crime. Literally. They plot out heists all around the neighborhood.

In this exclusive clip, which you can watch above, you can watch the beginning of this beautiful friendship.

"Robot & Frank," starring Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon and Peter Sarsgaard hits theaters August 17.
