New clip and featurette delve a little deeper into Alex Garland’s ‘Ex Machina’


Alex Garland is well known, and well respected among the sci-fi and challenging movie genre, and he is about to explode with his directorial debut, Ex Machina.

Previously Garland has written films like Sunshine, 28 Days Later, The Beach, Dredd and Never Let Me Go, with Ex Machina (which he has also written) see’s Garland finally stepping behind the camera. The results, based on the films first trailer, look stunning. Ex Machina looks highly intelligent, powerful and thought provoking sci-fi which could be one of the best of next year.

If you are still wanting to know more then we have a treat for you tonight. A new clip has been released from the film, along with an in-depth two minute featurete which poses a number of questions about artificial intelligence, robots having a conscience, and moral responses to those emotions. Like I said, intelligent stuff. Check out the videos, and a reminder of the trailer, below.

EX MACHINA is an intense psychological thriller in which Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a 24 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, wins a competition to spend a week at a retreat belonging to the company’s reclusive CEO, Nathan (Oscar Isaac). But when Caleb arrives he finds that he will have to participate in a fascinating experiment with the world’s first true artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot woman, Ava (Alicia Vikander). Truths, emotions and motives are blurred as the relationship between Caleb, Ava and Nathan intensifies.

Written and directed by Alex Garland and starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander, EX MACHINA will open in UK cinemas 23rd January 2015.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
