Following its North American premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival, A24 Films has released the third trailer for Ex Machina, which hits theaters on April 10. Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, who will next be seen in the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, are joined by Alicia Vikander (Seventh Son) in this sci-fi thriller that has been getting rave reviews at SXSW. Screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine) makes his directorial debut with this stylish and cerebral drama.
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.
The supporting cast is rounded out by Sonoya Mizuno, Corey Johnson, Chelsea Li, Deborah Rosan and Evie Wray. Check out the latest trailer, which includes some high praise from several of the nation's critics. Will you check out Ex Machina when it hits theaters next month? Let us know what you think below.
