Ex Machina Releases Uncomfortably Sexy Poster

2 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Ex Machina is hitting on April 10th, with its North American premiere right around the corner at SXSW on March 14th, and the brilliant-looking mind-bender has released a poster designed to make you slightly uncomfortable.

With basically a three-person cast, and a great choice of those three people, Ex Machina plays out the ultimate Turing test, as a young programmer has to decide if an A.I. passes as human… or something.

Check out the poster below, stay tuned for a new look at the film hitting tomorrow, and mark your calendar.

Written and Directed by Alex Garland

Starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, Ex MacHina. 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 »

New Poster for 'Ex Machina' Today, New Trailer Tomorrow

5 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the films I am most looking forward to at this year's South by Southwest Film Festival is Ex Machina, the directorial debut of writer Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Never Let Me Go). I know it's not a world premiere, and it has already opened in plenty of territories, but the word coming out of the places it has already played has me quite excited. The film features a trio of actors I think are terrific: Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, and Oscar Isaac. Seeing these three tackle a science-fiction drama written by a guy who has previously given us very thoughtful genre films is very interesting to me. So, it will be one I will make sure I do not miss during my jam-packed festival. Ex Machina has a new poster for you all to admire below. It's a fairly simple one, featuring Alicia Vikander front and center. It's »

Meet Ava In New Ex MacHina Poster; A24 Will Debut First U.S. Trailer On Tuesday

6 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Wired UK says Ex MacHina “is easily the best on screen depiction of AI – its promises, challenges, and its philosophical implications – in years.”

The Telegraph UK calls Alex Garland’s film “a bewitchingly smart science fiction film of a type that’s all too rare.”

The Guardian writes, “Alicia Vikander’s note-perfect depiction of ever-so-slightly unnatural movement (think of Yul Brynner’s walk in Westworld dialled down by about 99%) triggering unsettling responses. Blending balletic physical performance with Double Negative’s excellently rendered computer graphics, Vikander’s Ava beautifully blurs the line between “mecha” and “orga” (in the lexicon of Spielberg’s AI), inflecting the most natural gestures – a tilt of the head, a roll of the wrist, a flicker of a smile – with a hint of artifice, subtly accentuated by a whispered symphony of gyroscopic noise.”

What happens if Ava fails your test? Find out tomorrow at Noon Est when A24 debuts the new trailer. »

New rumours of Luke Skywalker’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and flashback sequences

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – Potential Spoilers Below

We’re less than 300 days away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but the reports and rumours are still coming in thick and fast. We’ve already had rumours that Darth Vader would be in the film in some capacity (possibly in a flashback) and now we have new rumours that back those claims up.

According to Making Star Wars, Robert Boulter (not announced in the cast list as of yet) has joined Star Wars: The Force Awakens to play a young Luke Skywalker in a flashback sequence. This would play into the opening of the movie, in which Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) go to Rose’s Bar, owned by Rose (Lupita Nyong’o) who is a puppet similar to Yoda.

Below is a breakdown of the flashback:

Dead bodies lay on the floor of a Jedi Academy. »

U.K. Soap Star Ben Hardy Set To Join X-Men: Apocalypse

25 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that the recent headline-grabbing live episodes of U.K soap opera Eastenders have provided something of a showcase for series regular Ben Hardy, as The Wrap reports that he is now in talks for a significant role in X-Men: Apocalypse. While Hardy has 188 episodes of the soap under his belt, he had apparently screentested for the X-Men role of Cyclops, before being rumoured for the role of Angel. The part he may ultimately play in the movie, however, is described as “key” and “important.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is the upcoming sequel to 2014’s box office hit, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and is the newest instalment in the X-Men franchise. Based on the Marvel comic series, the titular superhero team are comprised of mutants – born with superhuman abilities and spurned by humanity – who fight for peace and equality. The franchise currently comprises of five films, with two spinoff films »

British TV Actor Ben Hardy Gets Mystery Role in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

25 February 2015 7:52 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another mutant has joined the ranks of X-Men: Apocalypse. Just after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Kodi Smit-McPhee was hired to play Nightcrawler in the next installment of the X-Men series, albeit in a new timeline, The Wrap reports Ben Hardy, the British television star of the UK series "EastEnders," is in talks for a key role in the film. Funnily enough, Hardy was up for the role of young Cyclops before it went to Tye Sheridan, and there have been rumblings that he might play a young version of Angel. However, the source notes that other insiders say that he's playing another mutant, though specifics are under wraps. Hardy joins a big cast that includes returning X-Men franchise stars Hugh Jackmanm Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy and Evan Peters, not to mention the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert after sitting out »

Ben Hardy circling X-Men: Apocalypse mystery role

25 February 2015 3:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to TheWrap, Bryan Singer has found yet another young cast member for X-Men: Apocalypse, in the form of EastEnders actor Ben Hardy.

Unfortunately, we have no idea who Hardy will be playing, as the role is “another important [one] that is being kept under wraps.”

Hardy was one of the actors who tested for the role of Cyclops, which ultimately went to Mud‘s Tye Sheridan. The new report claims that while he was rumored to be playing Angel, “insiders” claim that that’s not the case. Whether or not Angel is actually in the film is, like a lot of things surrounding this project, still a mystery.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, »

EastEnders actor Ben Hardy is joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse.

Hardy's exact role in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past sequel is unknown, but Variety hints that he will play a well-known character.

This will be the first major Hollywood part for Hardy, who announced last November that he would quit his role as Peter Beale in BBC soap opera EastEnders.

His EastEnders exit scenes were screened in the UK on Tuesday (February 24), as Peter chose to move to New Zealand with his girlfriend Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) following the Bobby Beale murder reveal.

The next X-Men movie will introduce younger versions of established characters Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm played by Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner and Alexandra Shipp.

Oscar Isaac has been cast as the megalomaniac villain Apocalypse, while franchise veterans James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence will all return.

24 February 2015 3:05 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tye Sheridan may have landed the part of the younger Scott Summers in X-Men: Apocalypse, but it seems director Bryan Singer was impressed enough with Ben Hardy's audition to cast the young Eastenders actor in another role. Who will be be playing? Well that seems to be a mystery for now, and the only other details we have on the character is that he's "significant to the X-Men universe." The Wrap does also report that he was at one time rumored to be up for Warren Worthington/Angel (so that may at least confirm the winged mutant's appearance in the movie) but that insiders now say it's another "key role" that's being kept under wraps. Whoever Hardy is playing, he joins Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
