Adult sci-fi in the first trailer for Alex Garland’s “Ex Machina”

ex-machina

We need more science fiction like Ex Machina. Alex Garland’s new film has a new trailer and it looks like it could be a compelling and thought provoking sci-fi thriller. There are no explosions or fast ships, but there are bold ideas about humanity’s near future and questions that blur the line between man and machine. IMDb describes the film’ plot as “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.”. The film stars Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac (both of whom will be starring in Star Wars Episode VII), and Alicia Vikander as the A.I. and will be released in the US on April 10th, 2015.
