One of the films I am most looking forward to at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival is Ex Machina, the directorial debut of writer Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Never Let Me Go). I know it’s not a world premiere, and it has already opened in plenty of territories, but the word coming out of the places it has already played has me quite excited.
The film features a trio of actors I think are terrific: Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, and Oscar Isaac. Seeing these three tackle a science-fiction drama written by a guy who has previously given us very thoughtful genre films is very interesting to me. So, it will be one I will make sure I do not miss during my jam-packed festival.
Ex Machina has a new poster for you all to admire below. It’s a fairly simple one, featuring Alicia Vikander front and center. It’s not weird that she looks really great as a robot, right? We all think that. Okay, good. A new trailer will premiere tomorrow, for those of you out there who watch trailers.
