Ex Machina

Though Dredd may not have fared as well as some hoped, writer Alex Garland is set to redeem himself by taking a turn directing with the sci-fi flick Ex Machina. Garland behind the scripts for Never Let Me Go, Sunshine and 28 Days Later, all unique films with great stories. As for Ex Machina, this one follows a love triangle between two men and a beautiful robot girl. That's definitely unlike anything we've seen before, and now we have a couple of first looks at the film with stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) & Domhnall Gleeson (About Time). We also have a shot of the robot girl (Alicia Vikander), who has our full attention.

Here's the first photo from Alex Garland's sci-fi directorial debut Ex Machina (originally via The Playlist):

Update! We've added a mesmerizing new photo of Alicia Vikander in the film, debuted on

Stay tuned for more updates on the film - releasing in Europe starting early 2015. We're anxious to see this.

Ex Machina is written and directed by Alex Garland (writer of Dredd, Sunshine, 28 Days Later). Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a 24 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, wins a competition to spend a week at a private mountain retreat belonging to Nathan (Oscar Isaac), the reclusive CEO of the company. But when Caleb arrives at the remote location he finds that he will have to participate in a strange and fascinating experiment in which he must interact with the world’s first true artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot girl (Alicia Vikander). The film doesn't have a release date just yet.

Dredd was excellent, no need for redemption.
