Exclusive Interview: Alex Garland Talks Ex Machina

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The science-fiction genre can be a hard one to embrace. As screenwriter and director Alex Garland can teach us, it is more important for the characters and ideas to resonate with the audience than the groundbreaking visual effects. Garland wrote a variety of acclaimed sci-fi films, including the zombie thriller 28 Days Later, the Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation Never Let Me Go and recent cult favorite Dredd. In all of those titles, plus his newest film – the brainy sci-fi thriller, Ex Machina – the characters trump the concept.

Ex Machina has been one of the year’s biggest art-house successes, after two weeks in limited release. It tells the story of Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a tech programmer who gets the chance to test out the new work of reclusive genius and company figurehead Nathan (Oscar Isaac). That new creation is a female A.I. named Ava (Alicia Vikander), which soon proves to be more than it seems. »

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.

Watch: New 'Testament of Youth' Trailer Starring Kit Harrington and Alicia Vikander

24 April 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you haven't yet seen Ex Machina get out there and do so as it expands even further this weekend. Along with an overall great film you'll also get to see a great performance from Alicia Vikander whose name first came to most people's attention with A Royal Affair a couple years later, but after Ex Machina and this summer's Testament of Youth her stock is likely to continue to rise and, who knows, maybe an Oscar nomination in the near future. Today we have a new trailer for the latter film I mentioned there, Testament of Youth, a World War I feature adapted from the memoir by Vera Brittain played here by one Alicia Vikander opposite Kit Harrington ("Game of Thrones"). Here's the plot: Vera, irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded, overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown, to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she »

Alicia Vikander on Playing a Robot in 'Ex Machina'

A very deep conversation with Alex Garland about his new Sci-Fi classic 'Ex Machina'

9 April 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For a man whose directorial debut has earned almost uniformly stellar reviews, Alex Garland seems slightly pessimistic about what might come next.  It's likely because of his experiences writing "Sunshine," "Never Let Me Go" and "Dredd."  All three earned some heaping of critical praise, but either disappointed or had middling success at the box office.  "Ex Machina," which has already had success on the other side of the Atlantic, may break that trend. A contemporary science fiction thriller, "Machina" finds a young programmer, Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), dropped off at the remote estate of his company's mysterious and genius founder, Nathan (Oscar Isaac).  Caleb has won a contest at their Google-like company to spend a week with this powerful, Steve Jobs-esque figure, but he soon learns, however, that he's been recruited for a specific experiment.  Nathan has secretly been developing an artificial intelligence that "lives" within a walking and talking robotic body. »

A Royal Affair, Ex Machina star to voice documentary set for Cannes Film Festival.

Fast rising Swedish actress Alicia Vikander is to be the “voice” of legendary star Ingrid Bergman in Stig Björkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman - In her Own Words. 

Speaking to ScreenDaily, Björkman described Vikander as “the Bergman of today”.

The film, sold by TrustNordisk, receives its world premiere at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in mid-May prior to its Swedish release on August 28 - the day before the centenary of Ingrid Bergman’s birth. Cannes will also commemorate the centenary by featuring the late Casablanca star on its poster.

Vikander (A Royal Affair, Testament Of Youth) was apparently eager to join the film.

Björkman has unearthed unique personal records of Bergman - including home movies, films of her as a child, diary entries and many letters.

“I’ve met Alicia a couple of times over the years and I like her very much »

Exclusive Interview With Mads Mikkelsen On The Salvation

27 February 2015 9:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of Denmark’s greatest cultural exports, actor Mads Mikkelsen, has been dazzling (and frightening) North American audiences for more than a decade. He is best known domestically for his portryals of Le Chiffre in 2006’s Casino Royale and his chilling turn as Dr. Hannibal Lecter on the NBC drama, which is heading into its third season this spring. Foreign film lovers likely know his face from a variety of movies that have found modest success here, including three Danish Oscar nominees: After the Wedding, A Royal Affair and The Hunt.

Mikkelsen’s latest effort is a gritty western called The Salvation (you can read our review here). In the thriller, which premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, the actor plays a Danish settler out for retribution against a gang leader after his family is brutally murdered.

Earlier this week, we sat down with Mikkelsen to discuss his new role. »

Ex Machina: The making of Alex Garland's science fiction thriller

23 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Alex Garland's taut, tense directorial debut Ex Machina is many things: it's a claustrophobic thriller, a high-concept science fiction story, a character-driven chamber play, an exploration of the possibilities of artificial intelligence and a treatise on human consciousness.

It's also breathlessly entertaining, representing a very smooth transition to directing for veteran writer-producer Garland, whose past CV highlights include Danny Boyle's Sunshine, Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation Never Let Me Go and 2012's good-against-the-odds Dredd reboot.

The film is essentially a three-hander - with another key character coming into play later on - centred on everyman programmer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), who is selected to take part in a groundbreaking artificial intelligence experiment. The AI in question is Ava (Alicia Vikander), created by the reclusive Nathan (Oscar Isaac) to be the world's first genuinely conscious machine.

Digital Spy sat down with Garland, Vikander and Gleeson to discuss how Ex Machina came to be, »

Kick-Ass scribe Jane Goldman to adapt DC/Vertigo comic Fables for Warner Bros.

21 January 2015 4:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An adaptation of Bill Willingham’s popular Fables comic book series has been in the works for quite some time now, but never really gained traction. Today, however, the film’s producer offered up an intriguing and encouraging update.

We learned back in June of 2013 that A Royal Affair helmer Nikolaj Arcel (who was once on the shortlist for Marvel’s Doctor Strange) would be bringing the DC/Vertigo comic to the big screen, and according to producer David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter), that’s still very much the case. On top of that, the movie now has a new screenwriter, in the form of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class scribe Jane Goldman.

Heyman dropped the news in a recent interview with Cbr:

Jane Goldman is working on a draft as we speak. Nik Arcel is attached [to direct]. He did a draft, and now he’s supervising Jane, who’s doing a draft. »

Kick-Ass Screenwriter Jane Goldman To Pen Fables Adaptation

20 January 2015 5:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A big-screen adaptation of Bill Willingham’s popular Fables comic series has been in the works at Warner Brothers for quite some time now, but has not had a substantial update in nearly two years. Thankfully, that’s now changed, as the film has gained a new screenwriter in the form of Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and Kingsman: The Secret Service scribe Jane Goldman.

Goldman will pen a draft that builds upon the one written by A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel, who jumped on board to helm the film back in 2013. The update comes from producer David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter), who assures us that Arcel is still involved and offers words of encouragement for those eager to see the DC/Vertigo comic brought to life:

'Fables' Comic Adaptation Gets 'Kick-Ass' Writer

20 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While promoting his new family movie Paddington, producer David Heyman offered an update on his Vertigo Comics adaptation Fables, revealing that Kick-Ass screenwriter Jane Goldman has signed on to pen a new draft of the screenplay. Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) is still attached to direct, and is overseeing this new script by Goldman. Here's what the producer had to say in an interview with Comic Book Resources.

"Jane Goldman is working on a draft as we speak. Nikolaj Arcel is attached [to direct]. He did a draft, and now he's supervising Jane, who's doing a draft. Hoping that it'll come in and we'll be able to move to the next stage. All these things always take longer than you want. And Fables is not easy, by any means, but I think it'll be pretty great."

We first reported on Fables back in 2010, when David Yates (Tarzan) was eyeing the project to direct. »
