These movie UI's always overwhelm me, in the best way possible. So many details, so much going on, UI kid in a candy shop.
It would be funny to see a side-by-side comparison of movie UIs next to what the actual software used for robotics/engineering/fancy scientific stuff looks like right now…

Here is the official video by the creators if any of you are looking for it. Some cool answers in the comments.
Great find! Wish I would have found this official one first; they do offer some cool insights!
