Ex Machina Trailer

check-out-the-first-poster-for-alex-garlands-sci-f_7p82_1920Gearing up for its nationwide debut, A24 has released a new trailer for Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller Ex Machina. View trailer below.

Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test – charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive–and more deceptive–than the two men could have imagined.

I remember hearing positive things on the internet about this movie when it was screened at several festivals earlier this year and was hoping to get a chance to see it. I have to say that I am very curious to see Ex Machina, looking to be chilling story with a poignant theme. With the film being released in a couple of days, be sure to check back soon with my full review of this movie.

“Did you know that Nathan brought me here to test you?”

Ex Machina has already been released in select theaters and expanding nationwide on April 24th, 2015.
