Alex Garland is an excellent writer. The screenwriter behind Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd has tremendous range, and the fact that he can go from breaking your heart with a tragic Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation to writing a ridiculously good action movie shows he has discovered few limits so far. Some may argue he has a problem landing third acts, but those final 30 minutes of Sunshine are completely built up to and valid. Seriously. Garland tackles high-concepts with real humanity, and his characters are generally as fascinating as his big ideas. He may strike that balance once again with his directorial debut, Ex Machina. The sci-fi film stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Domhnall Gleeson (In Time) and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina). Gleeson plays Caleb, a coder who wins a contest to spend time with a private CEO, Nathan (Isaac), and his A.I. creation. When Caleb arrives at Nathan’s home he’s »

[Updated with trailer, which looks great!] Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd, has just directed his debut feature, Ex Machina. The folks at A24 have stepped up to distribute the film in the Us, with the release set for April 10, 2015.While I have been getting wary of man and machine stories as of late (the exception being that Black Mirror episode with Hayley Atwell and Domhnall Gleeson), Garland's take on such a tale makes me perk up. And with the promising talents of Oscar Isaac, Alicia Vikander, and *gasp!* Domhnall Gleeson in front of the camera, welll... Here's the lowdown on the story:Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at...

Earlier this week, high-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk likened humanity’s involvement with artificial intelligence to summoning the demon. For him, without imposing regulations on the proliferating advancements in the field, AI would quickly become the biggest existential threat that the human race has ever faced. What happens when the line between man and machine is blurred?
In the film, a young coder named Caleb (Domhnall Glesson) stumbles upon the opportunity of a lifetime when he wins a competition to spend a weekend with his reclusive boss (Oscar Isaac) at his lavish home. While there, the CEO introduces him to an experiment he has been working out to create an artificial intelligence that is housed in the body of a beautiful woman — a world’s first. »

The first trailer for Ex Machina, the new science fiction movie from the writer of 28 Days Later and Dredd, has arrived, offering an unsettling look at the next generation of artificial intelligence and the world that’s coming. Written and directed by Alex Garland — the movie is his directorial debut — Ex Machina stars Domhnall Gleeson as a programmer who ends up serving as the human component in a Turing Test for A.I. Ava, played by Alicia Vikander. As the trailer shows, things don’t necessarily go as easily as even that unusual premise would suggest. The movie, recently

Following the two posters released yesterday, A24 Films have released domestic and international trailers along with a third poster for the sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, which marks the directorial debut of Alex Garland, the writer behind 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd 3D.
Domhnall Gleeson stars as Caleb Smith, a talented a programmer at a massive internet-search company, who 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.

Domhnall Gleeson, the Irish actor who's appeared in such varied things as Never Let Me Go, Dredd and Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror, has a big year ahead of him in 2015. For one thing, he's cast in an unspecified role in Star Wars: Episode VII, and there's also The Revenant, a western which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy.
Then there's Ex Machina, which is described as an "intense psychological thriller" about a coder named Caleb (Gleeson) who spends a week in the home of Nathan (Oscar Isaac) the secretive boss of a huge internet company. Nathan's been secretly working on Ava, an artificially intelligent being played by Alicia Vikander. A bond grows between Caleb and Ava, and as the trailer below suggests, it all threatens to get terribly out of hand. »

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.

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 »

It was only a matter of time before writer Alex Garland made the leap to directing. With writing credits that include 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd (review), we know what Garland is capable of in the story department (though his scripts often suffer from third actor problems) and from the looks of this trailer for his directorial debut Ex Machina, he’s got a hell of an eye as well because this trailer is looking spectacularly good.
Ex Machina stars Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb Smith, a programmer who wins a competition to spend a week at the mountain retreat of his employer’s reclusive CEO Nathan Bateman, played here by Oscar Isaac. Caleb [Continued ...] »
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 »

We've seen sci-fi films, we've seen knotty love stories, but it's likely we haven't seen anything quite like "Ex Machina." Blending a variety of genres and bringing together a great, young cast (two of whom are in another sci-fi spectacle in 2015, a little movie you might've heard of called "Star Wars: Episode VII"), this is a film we're eager to see. And today, the first two trailers have arrived. And one of the big reasons we're anticipating "Ex Machina" is screenwriter Alex Garland. He's made quite the name for himself over the years in the world of genre film, writing three movies for Danny Boyle (two of which he directed), —“28 Days Later,” “Sunshine,” and “28 Weeks Later” — one for Mark Romanek (“Never Let Me Go”), and he also penned the 2012 cult fave “Dredd.” But as many celebrated screenwriters are wont to do, Garland is trying his hand at directing, and is »
