We caught a brief glimpse of Ex Machina last year, the android-flavoured film set for a local release next month and now we have an equally-long, second opportunity of exposure in the form of a fresh trailer. If you're into strangely attractive robots, this one's for you.
For some damnable reason, the official trailer upload isn't viewable in Australia. That said, you can find it on A24's YouTube channel if you want to check it out — there are ways to get around the block and the quality is better. The mirror here is fine though.
If you're not familiar with the film, it features Alicia Vikander, Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac. Isaac plays a genius roboticist and Vikander his walking, talking artificial intelligence "Ava", while Gleeson is a programmer hired by Isaac's character to go all Turing test on his creation. Written and directed by Alex Garland, who also penned 28 Days Later and Sunshine, the script will be on the excellent side of, uh, excellent.
Ex Machina looks part-thriller, part-intellectual joy. It was released in the UK back in January and is currently charting at 90 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, so it should be well worth checking out at the cinema.
