Ex Machina Trailer: Oscar Isaac Builds a Female Cyborg

By Brian Gallagher — March 3rd, 2015

Following the first trailer released back in October, A24 Films has released the second trailer for Ex Machina, arriving in theaters April 10. Before Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson can be seen in December's highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actors play much different roles in this sci-fi thriller about the world's first truly-advanced piece of A.I. technology. 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.

In addition, A24 Films has also released a new poster for Ex Machina, which co-stars Corey Johnson, Deborah Rosan, Evie Wray and Sonoya Mizuno. For those heading to the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Ex Machina will have its world premiere out of competition on Saturday, March 14. Take a look at the latest traielr and one-sheet below.
