The R-rated thriller Ex Machina starring Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, and Alicia Vikander just debuted an official trailer as well as a new poster. Ex Machina marks the directorial debut of screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later) and will have its North American premiere at the SXSW Festival this month.
Ex Machina opens in theaters in New York and LA on April 10, 2015 before expanding to additional cities on April 17th.
Caleb Smith (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 (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 (Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.
