New trailer for EX MACHINA is a reminder of how cool it is – in other words GO SEE IT


If you’ve somehow overlooked Alex Garland’s directorial debut EX MACHINA, take some time to look into it, as it’s one of the smartest and most interesting Sci-Fi films to come along in a while. You can read my review here. It stars Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander, and in many ways feels like a throwback to some of the colder and more suspenseful genre films of the early 1970s. The newest trailer spotlights many of the glowing comments its received from critics, and all of those are indeed earned. Check it out below, and if you see the film let us know what you think in the comments.

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. 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––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.
