Marina Antunes [Celluloid 10.30.14] United Kingdom scifi thriller



It was only a matter of time before writer Alex Garland made the leap to directing. With writing credits that include 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd (review), we know what Garland is capable of in the story department (though his scripts often suffer from third actor problems) and from the looks of this trailer for his directorial debut Ex Machina, he’s got a hell of an eye as well because this trailer is looking spectacularly good.

Ex Machina stars Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb Smith, a programmer who wins a competition to spend a week at the mountain retreat of his employer’s reclusive CEO Nathan Bateman, played here by Oscar Isaac. Caleb has been selected as the human part of a Turing Test for Bateman’s most recent experiment, an artificial intelligence named Ava (Alicia Vikander).


Ex Machina opens in the UK January 23 and in the US April 10, 2015.

I hope it doesn't turn out that Caleb Smith is really a machine. That last bit in the trailer with him cutting his own arm and him "winning" the trip to the retreat.

If it is, then it would be like another Adam and Eve story line. They would be the first pair of a new species.

Looks like it will be tragic and emotional.
