Alex Garland is known as a screenwriter (28 Days Later, Sunshine) and producer (Dredd, which he also wrote) and now he is a director. The first feature from Garland is called Ex Machina, in which Alicia Vikander (above) plays an AI which interacts with a scientist and a businessman (Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac) in ways the two couldn’t expect. A trailer for the film is coming tomorrow; for now get a gander at the great Ex Machina poster below.
The tweet above comes from Universal UK; here’s the poster, via A24 in the US.

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.
