Ex Machina is available in select theaters right now, and opening nationwide this Friday, on April 24th.
The film spins out of Stephen Hawking's assertion that "the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race". And the plot is described by the filmmakers thus:
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–and more deceptive–than the two men could have imagined.
Here's our brand new trailer for Ex Machina:
