I’m certainly looking forward to this new science fiction film from writer/director Alex Garland. Ex Machina is, according to the film’s website, “a chilling vision of the not-too-distant future of artificial intelligence”.
The official website continues: “In the mountain retreat of a gifted internet billionaire, a young man takes part in a strange experiment: testing an artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot girl. But the experiment twists into a dark psychological battle, where loyalties are torn between man and machine.”
The film, which is in UK cinemas from 23rd January, 2015, stars Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander. It is described as “an intense psychological thriller, played out in a love triangle. The film explores big ideas about the nature of consciousness, emotion, sexuality, truth and lies.”
The official trailer for Ex Machina is certainly worth a watch to see the amazing special effects used to produce the robot’s body!
