When Apple's Jony Ive wanted to bring curves to computers and software, I am not sure this was the end-game.

Oscar Isaac Shows Off His Moves In Latest Clip For Alex Garland’s Ex Machina

3 March 2015 10:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having dabbled in acclaimed entries into the genre such as Sunshine, 28 Days Later and the beloved Dredd reboot, Alex Garland’s directorial debut was always going to be met with an air of excitement. When Ex Machina made premiered in the UK last month, sci-fi fans were treated to an intelligent thriller that matched brains with brawn, and its overly positive reception has left us longing for the film’s North American release in April.

Essentially, Ex Machina revolves around one key question: what happens to a machine — and indeed humanity in general — when an artificial intelligence becomes sentient? Starring Domhnall Gleeson as budding programmer Caleb, the film will see him travel to the luxurious home of his reclusive boss, Nathan. As the CEO behind the largest Internet search engine in the world (cue the comparisons to Google), Nathan has engineered what he hopes is the most advanced AI in history through Ava, »

Watch the New Trailer for Alex Garland’s Ex Machina

3 March 2015 10:24 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"You... are dead-center of the greatest scientific event in the history of man." From the Rage Virus to a sun-baked suicide space mission to a gritty adaptation of Judge Dredd, Alex Garland has penned screenplays as thought-provoking as they are suspenseful. In Ex Machina, his directorial debut, he explores the remarkable potential of artificial intelligence in an eerie, post-modern setting where both cabin fever and experimental trickery could be at work. Ex Machina makes its North American debut later this month at the SXSW Film Festival, and a new trailer for the film teases machine-induced mind games.

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

Watch: Meet Eva in Second Us Trailer for Alex Garland's 'Ex Machina'

3 March 2015 9:30 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You are dead center of the greatest scientific event in the history of man." After writing sci-fi favorites such as Sunshine and 28 Days Later, Alex Garland is behind the camera this time as the director of Ex Machina. The sci-fi thriller stars Oscar Isaac as a reclusive technology CEO who invites Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) to his massive estate and hidden research facility to test out a new artificially intelligent android named Eva (Alicia Vikander). But soon Caleb doesn't know whether he trusts the creator or the creation as he's manipulated by both. It seems a bit derivative, but pretty intense with solid performances. Watch? Here's the second Us trailer for Alex Garland's Ex Machina from A24: You can still watch both the Us an international teaser trailers right here.

3 March 2015 9:22 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Today sees the release of a brand new trailer for the upcoming science fiction film, Ex Machina, from the mind behind 28 Days Later, and I simply cannont stop watching it.  Come inside to check it out for yourself!

To be honest, I was entirely, utterly, sold on Ex Machina after seeing the first trailer for the movie.  While the concept of artificial intelligence is nothing new, the approach this film seems to be taking with it, feels unique and like something that will keep my mind spinning long after the credits roll.  Today sees the releas of a new trailer, and it's even more amazing:

Watch: Sexy Robot Alicia Vikander Wows Two 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Stars In New U.S. Trailer For ‘Ex Machina’

3 March 2015 8:57 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Screenwriter Alex Garland has had a kind of Midas touch — he’s written and created a string of genre classics including three films directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (“The Beach,” Garland’s first novel, then the screenplays for “28 Days Later” and “Sunshine”) and one by Mark Romanek (“Never Let Me Go”). Safe to say that looks pretty good on a resume. But Garland's output suffered with the 2012 adaptation of “Dredd” — a box-office flop that couldn’t gross more than $35 million worldwide. Perhaps because of that bomb, Garland decided to take matters into his own hands with “Ex Machina,” his directorial debut that he also wrote. Set in a far future, it centers on a reclusive genius CEO, a A.I. robot and a young tech employee who wins a contest to spend private time with his isolated boss. The movie stars two upcoming actors from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

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

2 March 2015 9:02 AM, PST | 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. »

Dornan, Murphy To Join "Anthropoid"

2 March 2015 5:11 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jamie Dornan ("50 Shades of Grey") and Cillian Murphy ("Sunshine") are to lead the cast of Sean Ellis' WWII thriller "Anthropoid".

Much like "Valkyrie," the title refers to the code-name for an Allied operation to assassinate a key Nazi official. In this case Reinhard Heydrich, the head of the SS and one of the main architects of the Holocaust.

Two soldiers (trained by British forces) from Czechoslovakia’s army-in-exile were parachuted into their homeland to lead a mission against the Nazi nicknamed “The Butcher of Prague”.

Ellis helms from a script he co-wrote with Anthony Frewin. Leonard Glowinski, Anita Overland and Chris Curling will produce. Filming gets underway in Prague in July.

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
