On the heels of yesterday’s poster and distribution announcements, A24 and Universal Pictures have revealed the first domestic and international trailers for Alex Garland’s chilling sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander. See if Ava passes this deadly Turing Test by watching the teasers below!
Here’s the official synopsis: 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.
Written and directed by Garland, Ex Machina is produced by Scott Rudin and Andrew Macdonald, and will be released in the U.S. on April 10, 2015.
