Ex Machina Trailer

"To erase the line between Man and Machine is to obscure the line between Men and Gods." A24 Films has premiered the first teaser trailer for screenwriter Alex Garland's directorial debut from his own script, a sci-fi called Ex Machina starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis, Drive, Star Wars) as the CEO of a company who invites a young prodigy at his company to meet with the first true artificial intelligence. Ava is played by Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina, The Fifth Estate, Son of a Gun), and Domhnall Gleeson (Frank, About Time, Dredd) plays Caleb. I've been anxiously awaiting footage from Garland's feature debut and this looks absolutely great, even for just a teaser trailer. It's intense and mysterious. Watch below now!

Here's the first official teaser trailer for Alex Garland's Ex Machina, direct from A24's YouTube:

And here's a completely different international teaser trailer direct from Universal Pictures UK:

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 will be released in the UK starting early January next year. A24 Films just picked up Ex Machina for US release starting April 10th, 2015 next spring. We expect this to premiere at somewhere like Sundance before release. How does that look?

I think I'm going to choose to not watch this, and just see the film when it lands in NA. Also those taglines are kinds lame I think.

Looks great. I'll be seeing this. Been interested in it for awhile. Few days ago I was wondering what was happening with Ex Machina, then the poster came out and the now the trailer. I like what I'm seeing. Garland has written some great movies.

Looks great! Oscar Isaac seems to play very similar characters, but he does a great job at it.

This will be a winner.

Loved the Beach, he writes good characters should be good too.

Carpola on Oct 30, 2014


The Beach was alright, would have been more loved if it weren't Boyle and Garland.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 30, 2014


The book was good though, I think I read it when a lot of folk I knew were going to 'find themselves' at the time and it struck a chord.

I think 28 days later was THE movie in the zombie genre, love that movie. Sunshine is very special as well.

Jon Odishaw on Oct 30, 2014


Yea there are some good ones but i think 28 days takes the cake

Jon Odishaw on Oct 30, 2014


Sunshine. Hands down. Great film.

Not available to watch in Canada. =(

David Diaz on Oct 30, 2014


looks kinda sexy and it's like testing the sickness of today's tycoons, but still not mindblowing. However, it's definitely watchable. Good memories of 28 days later convinced me of that

shiboleth on Oct 30, 2014


This looks fantastic. I'll definitely be there in the front row

Richie G on Oct 30, 2014


Interesting delve into the world of AI.

Sunshine was great for 70% of the movie then it went into a really weird and dumb place. I still enjoy it very much.
