Radio 1's Zane Lowe re-scores Drive: A brave gamble, but did it pay off?

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Of all the great movies the Oscars have shunned over the years, Drive's snub in 2012 was a tough one to take.

Ryan Gosling stars as the Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver in his most mesmerising performance since he was a Jewish neo-Nazi in 2001's The Believer. Carey Mulligan is the struggling single mum who Gosling falls for, and a between-Breaking Bad seasons Bryan Cranston plays his mechanic partner in crime.

Nicolas Winding Refn's direction is suave and daring; he follows the blood, sweat and tears of The Driver's journey with total badassness and ends up with something in between Taxi Driver and Michael Mann's Thief... And then there's the soundtrack. What a soundtrack.

So when Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe announced that he was curating a score of new music for the film masterpiece, you can understand the anger and confusion it sparked. But »

‘Ex Machina’ Trailer: In the Future, Oscar Isaac Will Dance

10 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Alex Garland is an excellent writer. The screenwriter behind Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd has tremendous range, and the fact that he can go from breaking your heart with a tragic Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation to writing a ridiculously good action movie shows he has discovered few limits so far. Some may argue he has a problem landing third acts, but those final 30 minutes of Sunshine are completely built up to and valid. Seriously. Garland tackles high-concepts with real humanity, and his characters are generally as fascinating as his big ideas. He may strike that balance once again with his directorial debut, Ex Machina. The sci-fi film stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Domhnall Gleeson (In Time) and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina). Gleeson plays Caleb, a coder who wins a contest to spend time with a private CEO, Nathan (Isaac), and his A.I. creation. When Caleb arrives at Nathan’s home he’s »

First Trailer For Alex Garland's Ex Machina

14 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The directorial debut of screen writer and novelist Alex Garland (Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and 28 Days Later), Ex Machina sees Domhnall Gleeson play Caleb, a programmer for an internet search giant, who wins a competition to spend a weekend with the company's reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). But upon meeting Batemen, Caleb realises he has been selected as the human component in a Turing Test to evaluate whether or not his latest experiment in artificial intelligence, Ava (Alicia Vikander), possesses a human consciousness. This story is nothing new, but Garland has always had the knack of offering unique twists on sci-fi concepts. The first trailer does promise a tense thriller in amongst the sci-fi trappings, with some great performances from our three leads. Released: 23rd January 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ 10th April 2015 (U.S.) »

Oscars: Actor Race Favors the Trophy-Less

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a school of thought that says actors have to “earn” an Oscar nomination — voters are more likely to reward them if they’ve broken into the exclusive club with a previous nom. While such a theory didn’t apply to this year’s winner, Matthew McConaughey, it certainly doesn’t hurt for people to think a contender is “overdue.” But this year’s unbelievably tight actor race just might be made up of five gentlemen who have never been nominated before.

Right now, there are widely considered to be four likely nominees: Steve Carell (“Foxcatcher”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”), Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) and Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”). None has ever been nominated for an Academy Award.

In the actress race, by contrast, the three frontrunners have a total of 10 nominations among them. Reese Witherspoon, a lock for a nom for “Wild,” won for “Walk the Line. »

New Trailer For Ex Machina Blurs The Line Between Man And Machine

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this week, high-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk likened humanity’s involvement with artificial intelligence to summoning the demon. For him, without imposing regulations on the proliferating advancements in the field, AI would quickly become the biggest existential threat that the human race has ever faced. What happens when the line between man and machine is blurred?

It’s a concept that is fascinating and unnerving in equal measures, and one that underpins Alex Garland’s upcoming sci-fi film, Ex Machina, which recently debuted its international trailer.

In the film, a young coder named Caleb (Domhnall Glesson) stumbles upon the opportunity of a lifetime when he wins a competition to spend a weekend with his reclusive boss (Oscar Isaac) at his lavish home. While there, the CEO introduces him to an experiment he has been working out to create an artificial intelligence that is housed in the body of a beautiful woman — a world’s first. »

At long last, the yet-to-be-seen science fiction film "Ex Machina" has been picked up for Us distribution. A24 Films will release the film on April 10, 2015. Starring Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, this is the hotly buzzed-about Brit debut of Alex Garland, who has penned scripts for director Danny Boyle including "The Beach," "28 Days Later" and "Sunshine." Centered on a young programmer tapped to take part in a cutting-edge artificial intelligence experiment, "Ex Machina" has yet to land even at festivals (we hoped Fantastic Fest, but, alas) but is slated to premiere in the UK on January 23, 2015.

The Ex Machina Trailer Is Brilliant, Makes Us Want The Movie Immediately

15 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

"To erase the line between man and machine is to obscure the line between men and gods," warns the trailer for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Ex Machina. And the dangers that tagline implies are teased in a chilling promo that's as beautiful as it is unnerving. Star Wars: Episode VIII's Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac star as two men involved in an experiment that could forever change man's interactions with machine. Isaac is the creator of the artificial intelligence machine Ava, played by Gleeson's Anna Karenina co-star Alicia Vikander. But rather than your typical robot becomes sentient, robot turns on human overlords narrative, Ex Machina suggests Ava is not the one to fear, setting up one of the strangest and most compelling love triangles we've ever seen teased. With creepy music, clever cuts, and sneak peeks at some dazzling visual effects and a compelling story, Ex Machina's trailer has »
