Following the two posters released yesterday, A24 Films have released domestic and international trailers along with a third poster for the sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, which marks the directorial debut of Alex Garland, the writer behind 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd 3D.
Domhnall Gleeson stars as Caleb Smith, a talented a programmer at a massive internet-search company, who 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.
A24 Films picked up the domestic rights to Ex Machina yesterday, with the film set for an April 10, 2015 release. Universal International Pictures will release the film in the U.K. on January 23, 2015. Take a look at the first footage and the one-sheet below as A.I. becomes a reality in Ex Machina.
