This year, Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson will be giving audiences two different servings of sci-fi. First up, they’ll get brainy with “Ex Machina” alongside Alicia Vikander, and then they’ll go blockbuster in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” And, of course, the former picture is arriving first and today comes a couple clips from the movie along with a handful of new images.
Written by Alex Garland (“Sunshine,” “28 Days Later“) and marking his directorial debut, the movie follows a young nerd who is chosen by a tech billionaire to check out the advanced new AI he’s developed. And, as you might guess, things don’t go well. In the first clip, a grim future is laid out about how AI might view humanity down the line, while in the second, we see the digital creation that’s at the center of the film.
“Ex Machina” opens in the U.K. on January 23rd, hits SXSW in March, and opens in the U.S. on April 10th.
