It’s been a hectic couple of months and I have to admit that I haven’t paid too much attention to any of the news about Ex Machina. That said, I caught the new trailer that hit today and I’m very intrigued.
The film which stars Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Oscar Isaac, Domhall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander, appears to be a moder retelling of Frankenstein in the age of artificial intelligence.
Check out the trailer below:
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, seductive––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.
