Ex Machina photo gallery features exclusive first look at Oscar Isaac’s dance moves

16 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s a good year for those of us who are fans of both Oscar Isaac and pulpy, dramatic sci-fi. In 2015, we get a double dose of the Inside Llewyn Davis actor sharing screentime with robots and Gleeson children in the next Star Wars sequel, The Force Awakens, and this month’s Ex Machina.

Isaac joins Domhnall Gleeson – son of Brendan – and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina) for the directorial debut of Alex Garland, the screenwriter of 28 Days Later and Danny Boyle’s Sunshine.

In Ex Machina, a computer programmer (Gleeson) and a tech CEO (Isaac) partner up to perfect the artificial intelligence installed in a cyborg named Ava (Vikander). Anyone who is well read in A.I. movies knows that somebody’s going to get too attached to the walking and talking computer. This time, it’s Caleb (Gleeson) who falls too hard, and he plans to rescue Ava before her memory is wiped forever. »

Our Favorite Films From SXSW

25 March 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Kelly and Aaron both had the chance to go to SXSW this year and cover it for Cinelinx, here's their top movie recommendations that they had the chance to see and you need to see once they're released.

Kelly's SXSW Top 3

1. The Final Girls 

This film took me by surprise, in all honestly I was debating on not going but decided last minute to see it and I am glad I did. I was expecting it to be it a little entertaining because it does have an all star comedy cast including Adam Devine and Thomas Middleditch but i was blown away. With hilarious diagloue and a great meta storyline about modern day teens getting stuck in a 1980's sleep away camp horror, be sure to keep this one on your radar for it's release date. It's one of the most original movie concepts I have seen in a long time, »

'Ex Machina' (2015) Movie Review

21 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've made no secret about my love of theater on this website. Granted, a lot of that love has been reserved for musicals, but the love really stretches beyond that. Theater has the ability to put two people in a room and let dialogue and acting dictate a story in a way I find endlessly engrossing. Movies that employ this kind of storytelling are often dinged for being "too stagey" or "not cinematic enough". People want plays and musicals opened up for a more visual, less aural experience. It's not necessary, and can actually hurt what makes the piece interesting to begin with. Ex Machina isn't adapted from a stage play, but it employs the stage tactic of simply sitting two people in front of one another to hash out their ideas and emotions verbally. The result is intelligent, entertaining, pulp science fiction at its best. The questions proposed in »

Review: Alex Garland's 'Ex Machina' Asks Provocative A.I. Questions

20 March 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Artificial intelligence seems to be a popular topic in science fiction these days–between giving life to a robot in Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, to extending life in Wally Pfister's Transcendence. The latest A.I. tale is Ex Machina, the feature directing debut of sci-fi screenwriter Alex Garland, whose past work includes 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go and Dredd. How does he fare bringing to life his own script? Better than expected. Ex Machina is an engaging, amusing sci-fi thriller that literally asks provocative questions, with smart lines of dialogue that touch upon fascinating, honest topics. Garland digs deep with this movie, bringing up questions and concerns about artificial intelligence that not many others have really addressed. There's no question that Garland is a very capable science fiction storyteller, and his expertise in writing is obvious as the script for Ex Machina is sleek and sexy. Essentially, »

See Michael Fassbender As Steve Jobs In New Promo Poster

17 March 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Christian Bale exited Danny Boyle’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, many believed the project to have lost its driving element. Bale’s resemblance to the Apple founder is perhaps greater than the man who would actually go on to play him; Michael Fassbender. Regardless, in this first leaked poster it appears as if Fassbender is right at home in the shoes of the technological pioneer.

The poster is a replica of the original promotional ad for Jobs’ NeXT computer. In the snap, Fassbender occupies the same space that Jobs did during that round of marketing and while he doesn’t look remotely like the man, this is a movie. Disbelief has to be suspended just a little.

For those of you who may need a refresher, the movie is scripted by Aaron Sorkin who has repeatedly affirmed that the finished feature won’t resemble a traditional biopic. Instead it »

Ex Machina Is An Early Frontrunner To Be 2015's Best Film

14 March 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Within the film world, a year is a very long time. There are approximately 52 weekends between the start of January and the end of December, and each of those typically not only feature multiple wide-released movies, but also a number of limited releases as well. It now being mid-March, this means that there are still hundreds of films left to be seen in the next nine and a half months. That being said, I’m confident that by the time December 31st rolls around, Ex Machina - which just had its North American premiere at SXSW – will still be considered one of the best movies of the year, potentially topping the list. The directorial debut of 28 Days Later and Sunshine screenwriter Alex Garland, the story begins as a young programmer named Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is selected as the winner of a lottery at his company, and his reward »

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

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.

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, »

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.

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.
