Robot Mind Games Abound in ‘Ex Machina’ Trailer
A trailer for the directorial film debut from Alex Garland (writer of Sunshine, 28 Days Later, and the upcoming Halo film) is now up. Looks like Terminator: Genisys won’t be the only robot movie in theaters next year. Coming out next April, Ex Machina stars Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb, an internet programmer who wins a competition to spend a week at an out of the way mountain compound to meet with Oscar Isaac‘s robot scientist Nathan Bateman. Nathan has chosen Caleb to test his latest AI specimen, Ava, played by Alicia Vikander (with some Her-like smooth talking).
From there it looks like this ultra intelligent, and emotionally cognitive, robot messes with the minds of the men as Caleb tests (falls in love with) her. The movie looks to be filled with some great technicolored tension.
