A24 just picked up the rights to Alex Garland’s film Ex Machina, where he debuts as a director. The movie features Oscar Isaac, Domhall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander. They made the announcement and included a teaser poster which you can see below.
Garland serves as a writer in the movie too, who also wrote films such as 28 Days Later and Sunshine. The film was produced by DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush executive produced the film along with former Film4 head Tessa Ross. A24 will release the film in the United States, while Universal International Pictures is distributing the film internationally.
I like how the poster looks, it’s good for a teaser poster. I admire Alex Garland’s work and since Oscar Isaac has a role in the new Star Wars it’s an obvious choice to release the film next year.
To add more information, Latino-Review mentions:
Directed by Alex Garland, EX MACHINA features Domhall Gleeson as Caleb Smith, a programmer at an internet-search giant 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.
Here’s the trailer, which they uploaded some hours ago:
Ex Machina opens in theaters April 10, 2015.
