“Star Wars” star Oscar Isaac can't be trusted in “Ex Machina.” The first trailer (above) for the science fiction thriller makes it abundantly clear that Isaac's character is keeping secrets from a young programmer, played by Domhnall Gleeson, who is selected to evaluate the human qualities of a breathtaking female robot (Alicia Vikander).

The first trailer for Ex Machina has debuted online.
However, things soon take a dark turn as the men realise that Ava is far more sophisticated, seductive and deceptive than they realised.
Gleeson and Isaac will also star alongside each other in Star Wars Episode VII, which is expected to complete filming in early November.
Ex Machina will be released in UK cinemas on January 23, and will arrive in the Us on April 10. »
We need more science fiction like Ex Machina. Alex Garland’s new film has a new trailer and it looks like it could be a compelling and thought provoking sci-fi thriller. There are no explosions or fast ships, but there are bold ideas about humanity’s near future and questions that blur the line between man and machine. IMDb describes the film’ plot as “a young programmer is selected to participate in a breakthrough experiment in artificial intelligence by evaluating the human qualities of a breathtaking female A.I.”. The film stars Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac (both of whom will be starring in Star Wars Episode VII), and Alicia Vikander as the A.I. and will be released in the Us on April 10th, 2015.

"To erase the line between Man and Machine is to obscure the line between Men and Gods." A24 Films has premiered the first teaser trailer for screenwriter Alex Garland's directorial debut from his own script, a sci-fi called Ex Machina starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis, Drive, Star Wars) as the CEO of a company who invites a young prodigy at his company to meet with the first true artificial intelligence. Ava is played by Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina, The Fifth Estate, Son of a Gun), and Domhnall Gleeson (Frank, About Time, Dredd) plays Caleb. I've been anxiously awaiting footage from Garland's feature debut and this looks absolutely great, even for just a teaser trailer. It's intense and mysterious. Watch below now! Here's the first official teaser trailer for Alex Garland's Ex Machina, direct from A24's YouTube: And here's a completely different international teaser trailer direct from »

I really one to see Alex Garland’s “Halo” movie. If anyone could abolish the video games-don’t-make-good-movie myths, Garland was a likely candidate. His science fiction writing is heady without drowning in self-importance. “28 Days Later” is a great film. “Never Let Me Go” flirts with all the right ideas and tones, even if it’s too dour for its own good. “Dredd” trounced low expectations with its tangibility and streamlined focus. Garland wrote a draft of “Halo” nearly a decade ago. It still sounds like the perfect match of writer and blockbustery source material. There’s little chance we’ll see his take, but it’s relevant because the first look at Garland’s directorial debut, “Ex Machina,” will only make you wish someone with this control over the genre could step into a mega-budgeted action movie. This trailer proves that Oscar Isaac yammering about Turing tests can be »

After years of scripting and producing sci-fi movies, Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine) is finally trying his hand at directing one. Ex Machina features Star Wars Episode 7 castmates Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson as two men working on an artificially intelligent robot played by Alicia Vikander. As is always the case in movies about AIs, […]

In 1978, there were two things on the minds of boys ages 5 to 16. Ok, maybe three. They were Kiss, Star Wars, and girls. You pick the order they were in for you personally. I was 6, so girls really hadn't figured into the equation yet.
Girls were on boys' minds for the obvious reasons. Star Wars was popular because it had just been released the year before and blew everyone away with its groundbreaking, never-before-seen special effects and imagery. After only being around since 1973, Kiss was the hottest band in the world because of their shockingly explosive on-stage spectacle and look. They had already released several best-selling studio, live, and solo albums. They had t-shirts, stickers, belt buckles, and everything else you can think of with their logo and likenesses plastered on them. The band even had a comic book that featured the members as superheroes that was published through Marvel Comics. »

Alex Garland, the author of The Beach and screenwriter of 28 Days Later and Dredd, makes his directorial debut with Ex Machina, which features two next-generation Star Wars actors in a thriller about an artificial-intelligence experiment. Domhnall Gleeson plays a low-level programmer who's selected by his internet company's reclusive CEO (Oscar Isaac) to take part in a unique Turing Test with Ava (Alicia Vikander), an alluring and sophisticated creature who might be more advanced than both men can fathom. "One day, the AIs are going to look back on us the same way we look at fossils," says Isaac's genius. A »

The Dubai Film Festival is downsizing drastically due to budget cuts, doing away with its Dubai Film Connection co-production platform, which is the cornerstone of its market, and also scrapping its key Muhr Asia/Africa Awards section, and axing its Interchange lab/fund.
While rumors of these developments, which could lead to the demise of the entire Dubai fest, had been swirling, confirmation — and some, albeit scant, specifics — about the cuts came from Dubai Film Market manager Samr Al Marzooqi. He confirmed them without comment, on the sidelines of a panel the Abu Dhabi Film festival.
The Dubai Film Connection was the only bona-fide co-production platform in the Middle East; Dubai’s Muhr Asia/Africa Awards made the fest a gateway to Asia and Africa, besides the Middle East; the Interchange lab/fund, set up in 2012 in tandem with the Torino Film Lab, served as a bridge between the Arab and European film industries. »

In 1978, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS. It quickly became one of the most infamously horrible pieces of Star Wars history. (Until the prequels, that is, hey yo!) Aside from a cartoon that introduced us to Boba Fett, the television special was notoriously bad, showing us Life Day on the Wookiee home […]

The Star Wars: Battlefront series is one of my favorite games of all time. The third one in the series has had many false starts with multiple studios and was completely scrapped after Disney acquired LucasFilm.
In 2013, EA/Dice were tapped to bring a new iteration of Battlefront to PS4, Xbox One, and PC, completely skipping an entire generation of consoles. A teaser trailer shown at E3 2013 gave fans of the series a lot of hope. But with no ship date we had to wait and wonder.
EA has announced that the reductively titled Star Wars: Battlefront will be launching holiday 2015. Which, as many Star Wars fans know, is right around the release of Star Wars: Episode VII. Dice has previously confirmed that the game will feature events from the original trilogy. I'm hoping for at least one Episode VII inspired battle.
I'm bewildered and excited by this news. »

Ezra always seems to get the most difficult jobs on Star Wars Rebels, and in the next episode titled, 'Breaking Ranks,' the young informal Padawan goes on his first undercover mission in the heart of the Empire's military forces.
In a callback to the clone training facilities on Kamino in Attack of the Clones, Ezra has joined a Stormtrooper Imperial Academy on Lothal in order to gain inside access to their facilities. Note that the cloning facilities are no longer in use and apparently the clones themselves have been shutdown, so the Empire recruits children and young adults into its Imperial army.
Check out Ezra in his Ralph McQuarrie-inspired stormtrooper training gear in the Star Wars Rebels 'Breaking Ranks' clip below. The new episode airs this upcoming Monday, November 3 at 9/8c on DisneyXD. You can also online stream episodes via the Watch Disney Xd app and website. »
A puzzling quiet blankets Imax’s sprawling Santa Monica complex on a recent October afternoon. Trailers for “Dracula Untold” and “Jupiter Ascending,” screaming, “See it in Imax!” play in a loop, but most of the company’s employees are absent. Stacks of film canisters for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming “Interstellar” line the hallway, outnumbering the executives and technicians on hand.
There’s a reason for this veritable ghost town. The Imax crew is overseeing a Universal CityWalk screening, for theater owners, of Nolan’s space adventure. In their absence, Greg Foster, CEO of Imax Entertainment, and the company’s ambassador to Hollywood, is jittery. He’s desperate to know how the pic played.

Having injected life into the zombie genre with the bold and high-octane thriller, 28 Days Later, before guiding Judge Dredd to the screen in style back in 2012, Ex Machina marks Garland’s first foray behind the camera, and it’s certainly shaping up to be an eye-catching debut.
In essence, the film follows a young coder named Caleb (played here by Star Wars Episode VII star, Domhnall Gleeson), who is invited to the lavish home of his reclusive boss to partake in an experiment that would see the world’s first artificial intelligence planted into the body of a woman. Oscar Isaac plays the part of the reticent CEO.
Expect philosophical questions aplenty when the film hits in the early stages of next year, »

Artist Brock Hofer redesigned Boba Fett as a cool nightmarish looking creature. It's a very different take on the character than we're used to seeing, and he did an awesome job bringing his creepy vision of this iconic character to life. Here's what the artist has to say about it:
"A commissioned piece of Boba Fett with a bit more organic flare. I usually don't get to draw Star Wars characters but had a blast messing around with the armor design, trying to keep him looking cool while throwing in my own weird ideas."
I really like the weird ideas that he threw in here!
