A scene with robot spiders

I'm not certain it's a movie. There's a scene, CG I believe, with a number of robot spiders. At least 15-20, I think. I want to say they hatch somehow, then they are walking across a cold hard surface. You can hear all the little legs clicking against the surface. They moved quickly like they are on a mission. Maybe they had their sights set on a target. Any help?

The closest I can get is "Minority Report." Unless there's a clip of them that's not the one available, I don't think they are the ones I'm thinking of. The other possibility is that my imagination is patching together a scene.
I remember that there was a film where someone breaks into metal nanobyte style spiders, or they create someone from pieces. Does this sound right?
There are metallic spiders in "Lost in Space" (movie):

There are robotic spiders in "Runaway" (movie):

There are the Replicators of "Stargate SG1" (TV series):
I'm not really sure. The memory is very hazy. It may have been a random show. Maybe some foreign movie. I want to say they look similar to this one:

Two possibilities that I can think of.

1. Lost in Space movie, not really robots, but they were metal of some kind.

2. Runaway with Tom Selleck.

Those are the two movies I know of with mechanical spiders.
