Oscar Isaac ‘Ex Machina’ Interview: How Stanley Kubrick Influenced His Character, Plus Star Wars and X-Men
Posted on Friday, April 10th, 2015 by Germain Lussier
Fans love to complain that good sci-fi isn’t released any longer. Alex Garland‘s Ex Machina, however, is good sci-fi. The passage of time may even turn it into great sci-fi. The film stars Oscar Isaac as Nathan, a billionaire savant who created a fictional analog to Google. He invites Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), one of his employees, to his secluded home in order to test a new piece of technology. That technology is a beautiful, mysterious, artificially intelligent robot named Ava (Alicia Vikander).
After that setup, the film is very careful about letting us know what is really going on. Caleb, Nathan and Ava all seemingly have their own agendas in a very tense, very exciting sci-fi story that surprises from the first moment to the last.
We were lucky enough to speak to Isaac about this great movie. He discussed how he shaped such a fascinating, yet seemingly familiar character, creating tension on set, the influences on the character – including Stanley Kubrick – and, of course, some discussion of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and X-Men Apocalypse.
There are no spoilers here. We’ll post those after opening weekend. For now, read our Oscar Isaac Ex Machina interview. Read More »
