Ten filmmakers whose skills would be well-suited to television

10 June 2015 8:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Rian Johnson

The migration of filmmakers from the big screen to the small one is not a new phenomenon, but another team was formally inducted this weekend, with the Wachowskis’ Netflix series Sense8 making its debut. The duo join the ranks of others such as Steven Soderbergh, and they are far from the last ones, as Steve McQueen, Baz Luhrmann, and Amy Seimetz are among those who are poised to make the creative leap as well. There are some filmmakers, however, who have displayed a set of talents that make the idea of them moving to television an exciting one. Here are ten filmmakers who would be a great fit on the small screen in charge of a tv show.

1) Alex Garland

With a writing filmography that includes 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and Dredd, Alex Garland has proven that, no matter the genre, he is capable of telling a compelling story. »

Matt Damon Is Stranded on Mars in Intense First Trailer for 'The Martian'

8 June 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Never mind little green men, there's only one man we need to worry about in "The Martian": Matt Damon's astronaut Mark Watney. During a manned mission to Mars, he's left behind and presumed dead. But he's not dead. He's just stuck there. So he's forced to use Bourne-level smarts to survive and signal home that he's still alive.

20th Century Fox just released the first 3-minute, 17-second trailer for "The Martian" and -- prepare to cringe at this, but dammit it's still true -- it's out of this world. Just watch:

"The Martian" is directed by Ridley Scott, so it's already off to a great start, and it's based on the novel by Andy Weir. Matt Damon is the headliner, but he's joined by A-listers Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Donald Glover, and ... Kristen Wiig? Yeah, she's branching away from just comedies, »

A "28 Months Later" Is In The Works

12 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Writer/Director Alex Garland, coming off the success of "Ex Machina," is not a major fan of sequels. Yet one of his earliest writing efforts, Danny Boyle's acclaimed zombie drama "28 Days Later," may be getting another one it would seem.

Garland was not involved in the first sequel "28 Weeks Later" and had no interest in a third for several years. However, he now tells The Playlist that a third film is moving forward with producer Andrew McDonald and it came about due to a random idea:

"The rights to '28 Days' were frozen, effectively, because they were shared between Danny [Boyle], [producer] Andrew [McDonald], myself, and Fox. After the second one, none of us really wanted to do another. Fox may or may not have, I don't know.

[Then] about two years ago, Danny [Boyle] started collaborating on the potential to make 'Trainspotting 2,' another sequel. In that conversation, an idea for '28 Months' arrived. »

Fear The Walking Dead: Production Begins on AMC’s Horror Spinoff Series

11 May 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

AMC has announced that production has begun on The Walking Dead spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead. The show takes place in Los Angeles during the initial days of the outbreak. “We're going to show people all the insanity of civilization crumbling that Rick Grimes slept through,” says creator Robert Kirkman.  “Buckle up.” At least that’s a moderately interesting distance from The Walking Dead, and they’re not just showing what’s going on with another small group struggling to survive in a rural area. Filming in underway in Vancouver, and I’m curious if the spinoff will stick to cities as a way to mark its distinct personality, or if, like The Walking Dead, it will eventually try to move away from urban landscapes. Click here to watch the creators talk about the new series, and check out the press release below. Fear the Walking Dead premieres this summer, »

Exclusive: Edgar Wright Interviews 'Ex Machina" Director Alex Garland

8 May 2015 4:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For film enthusiasts, there are few people working in the medium today more interesting than either Edgar Wright or Alex Garland.  So when the auteur of the Cornetto Trilogy told us he wanted a place to interview his friend, the director of the just-released "Ex Machina", we were thrilled to give him a home. You can hear the pair's conversation in the video above.  It's a fascinating, free-flowing discussion of filmmaking, the craft of the screenplay, technology, the themes in Garland's film as well as the surprising pick of the writer/director who has had an outsized influence on them both.  A stunning amount of the great film work of the past decade has emerged from the minds of the two participants in this conversation – "Shaun of the Dead," "Hot Fuzz," "The World's End" and "Scott Pilgrim vs the World" are among Wright's credits.

Natalie Portman in Talks for Ex MacHina Director’s Enviro-Horror Thriller Annihilation

7 May 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As a screenwriter, Alex Garland has been doing impressive work for years on films like 28 Days Later, Sunshine, and Never Let Me Go. He recently made his directorial debut on a character-driven sci-fi film called Ex Machina which, if you haven’t heard already, is the best movie of 2015 so far. As a result, many have been curious to see what Garland will do next, and it appears that his adaptation of the excellent Jeff VanderMeer novel Annihilation is shaping up to be the winning candidate, with an Oscar winner circling the lead role. Per Variety, Natalie Portman is in early talks to star in the Paramount Pictures film, which is best described as a chilling enviro-horror thriller. The story follows the expedition of four women who are sent into the mysterious “Area X”, a portion of land in the United States that has been secretly quarantined due to abnormal activity. »

Alex Garland Eyes Sci-Fi Adaptation Annihilation, Has No Intention Of An Ex Machina Sequel

7 May 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alex Garland’s break into mainstream filmmaking was on the cards for some time before the arrival of his excellent and cerebral sci-fi, Ex Machina. As the screenwriter behind 28 Days Later, Sunshine and the beloved Dredd reboot, Garland had been honing his skills from behind the camera for quite a while, and his talent is apparent in every frame of his critically-acclaimed debut.

Not one to rest on his laurels, the British director is already eyeing up potential candidates for his next project, and one that has risen to the top of the pack is an adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s novel, Annihilation. Remaining in the genre of science fiction, Garland’s latest is currently in the embryonic stages at Paramount; nevertheless, the filmmaker was able to share a few tidbits about VanderMeer’s concept in an interview with Deadline.

Ex Machina writer-director Alex Garland on machines, A.I., and finding the perfect cast

6 May 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The lines between man and machine are blurred in the sci-fi thriller Ex Machina.  Starring Oscar Isaac,Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander, the film explores the notion of the Turing Test, pitting programmer Caleb (Gleeson) against Nathan’s (Isaac) machine Ava (Vikander) in an attempt to prove – or disprove – her artificial intelligence.

Ex Machina has steadily been gaining buzz as one of the year’s must-see sci-fi films since it debuted at the SXSW Film Festival.  A familiar face is behind not only the script, but the camera.  Alex Garland, author of The Beach and its subsequent screenplay, as well as the screenplays for 28 Days Later… and Sunshine made his directorial debut with Ex Machina.

Cineplex sat down with the affable writer-director to find out more about machines, the collaborative world of filmmaking, and working with some of the biggest up-and-comers in Hollywood (and future Star Wars: The Force »

Interview with Alex Garland, writer/director of Ex Machina

24 April 2015 8:57 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Alex Garland’s résumé reads like a laundry list of recent sci-fi and horror cult hits, with screenplay credits including 28 Days Later (2002), Sunshine (2007), and Dredd (2012). His latest, Ex Machina, may stand to follow that same path of cult adoration – although hopefully for Garland, its box office will follow more in the footsteps of 28 Days Later than those of Dredd. The sparse, character-driven sci-fi film follows Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), an office drone at a major tech company who wins the opportunity to spend a week at the secluded home of his employer, Nathan (Oscar Isaac). Caleb discovers Nathan has recruited him to test the behavior of an android, Ava (Alicia Vikander), that Nathan has developed. As Nathan begins to display a more megalomaniacal side and Ava proves even more emotionally developed than expected, Caleb’s big week with the boss starts to slide unsettlingly south.

Movie Review – Ex Machina (2015)

24 April 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ex Machina, 2015.

Written and Directed by Alex Garland.

Starring Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Alicia Vikander and Sonoya Mizuno.

Synopsis:

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.

Desire, lust, and love are undoubtedly some of the strongest emotions that humans come equipped with, but can artificial intelligence become so sentient that it can experience those feelings too? Ex Machina (the directorial debut from Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine) asks this and many more bold questions that raise so many provocative thoughts about the society we live in today, that it is hard not to call this one of the most intelligent and thought-provoking sci-fi thrillers of the current generation. You could probably go one step further and argue that it is one of the most original films ever made.

Ex MacHina – The Review

23 April 2015 6:07 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s hard to find smart, thought-provoking science fiction stories these days, with current trends dictating  bigger is better. Writer-Director Alex Garland’s Ex MacHina is small-scale, slow-paced, and breaks no new ground in terms of ideas. Yet thanks to a terrific script, exceptional characterizations, and one super-sexy robot, it’s the best new science fiction film I’ve seen since Under The Skin. Like Garland’s earlier scripts, which gave us fresh takes on the zombie genre (28 Days Later) and the space-flight-to-save-the-earth genre (Sunshine), Ex MacHina takes a familiar sci-fi concept, in this case the replication of human presence via artificial means, and makes it new.

Ex MacHina tells the story of Caleb (geeky Domhnall Gleeson from Unbreakable), a low-ranking worker bee at Bluebook, the world’s “biggest internet search engine”. The film opens with him winning an in-company competition for the opportunity to spend a week at the »

New Ex MacHina Trailer Is Creepy, Sexy And Serves As A Warning!

22 April 2015 10:31 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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 company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test – charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined. Ex Machina marks the directorial debut of Alex Garland, the screenwriter behind 28 Days Later, Sunshine and a 2012 Cbm favorite Dredd (the reboot, Not the Stallone flick). The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac who will appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens  this December. The clip ends with the »

Ex Machina Finally Releases Obligatory A.I. Scare Tactics Trailer

22 April 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It’s hard for serious cinephiles to look forward to anything more than an Alex Garland film about A.I. that stars Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson.

But, in case you aren’t sold simply on the premise of Ex Machina, and the critical buzz of the last few weeks isn’t enough either, the movie would like to take a shot at freaking you out about the general threat of the existence of a true A.I.

There’s Serious Implications In The New Ex Machina Trailer

22 April 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Undoubtedly one of the year’s most talked about titles, Alex Garland’s exploratory sci-fi film Ex Machina has been showered with praise since its global release in January. Mining the genre for its traditional tropes of postmodernism, identity and of course, sentient robots, Garland has furnished us with one of the most awe-inspiring cinematic experiences in years. With the film’s U.S. run soon expanding to a wider theatrical release, a brand new trailer has dropped to clue you in on just what you’ve been missing.

Based upon an original idea by Garland, Ex Machina orbits around genius inventor and CEO Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac), whose reclusive nature has allowed him to make a phenomenal technological breakthrough. Included in this newest preview is a deeper look into Nathan’s process. Specifically, how he designed and created his beautiful, self-cognisant android Ava (Alicia Vikander). It’s yet another »

Watch: 2015’s Best Dance Scene & The New Trailer For ‘Ex Machina’ With Oscar Isaac & Domhnall Gleeson

22 April 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re calling this one early. Unless some serious competition comes up later in the year, the best dance sequence of cinema in 2015 will go down as a scene performed by Oscar Isaac in “Ex Machina.” If you’ve seen the movie, you know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t, it’s a perfect example how this cerebral and stylish science fiction thriller from Alex Garland (writer of “28 Days Later” and “Sunshine,") contains some brilliantly absurdly funny moments out of nowhere. A24 mashed up the scene with the second best dance scene of the year, which is from another one of its films, Noah Baumbach's “While We’re Young.” “Ex Machina” stars two upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” leads, Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, along with Alicia Vikander (who we’re told came really close to bagging a role in “Star Wars: Rogue One »

Final Trailer for 'Ex Machina' Cautions Against Artificial Intelligence

22 April 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The sci-fi thriller Ex Machina has been in limited release for a couple weeks now, but this weekend the film featuring future Star Wars actors Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac expands nationwide to theaters everywhere. And with that comes one final trailer to convince audiences to see this worthwhile flick. There's not much new footage, but the trailer uses quotes from respected scientific experts such as Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about how much of a gamechanger true artificial intelligence would be, though not necessarily for the better. It's something that's on the verge of not being science fiction. Watch! Here's the final trailer for Alex Garland's Ex Machina from A24: You can still watch the previous second trailer for Ex Machina right here. Ex Machina is written and directed by Alex Garland (writer of Dredd, Sunshine, 28 Days Later). Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a 24 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, »

Quiz: Artificial Intelligence in the movies

20 April 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Artificial intelligence has long been a topic of interest in movies, going all the way back to the late 1920s withFritz Lang’s Metropolis, featuring A.I. in the form of “False Maria”. The use of A.I. characters has persisted since then, cropping up in everything from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Transcendence.

It’s becoming harder and harder to go to the theatre these days without seeing some form of A.I. playing a role, whether that be villainous, heroic, or somewhere in between. We can’t help but notice how much of the on-screen A.I. seems to be getting more and more human… is something like Her’s Samantha on the technological horizon?

This month’s Ex Machina features Alicia Vikander in the role of Ava, a very human-esque form of A.I. The film follows Domhnall Gleeson’s character Caleb as he is recruited to »
