The ambitious sci-fi flick Ex Machina is getting rave reviews, and the latest trailer has us champing at the bit to see Alex Garland’s new sci-fi film. This movie just keeps looking better and better.
The trailer shows off a ton of new footage, and does an excellent job of setting up the deep questions at the heart of the film. What it means to be human, and what traits we use to define it. The story follows a computer programmer (Domhnall Gleeson) who visits a remote research facility owned by a tech genius (Oscar Isaac) to unwittingly test a cutting-edge new artificial intelligence (Alicia Vikander).
Considering that reviews are already rolling in for the film (almost all of them glowing), the trailer is also interspersed with some media buzz and review notes. Garland cut his teeth writing modern sci-fi classics like Dredd and 28 Days Later, and it seems he’s only sharpened his skills even more now that he’s wearing two hats as both writer and director. If this movie is as good as it appears to be, Garland will be on the short list to direct [INSERT MASSIVE FRANCHISE SEQUEL HERE] sooner rather than later.
