Alex Garland has written Dredd, 28 Days Later and Sunshine, and now he will be directing and writing the upcoming sci-fi film, Ex Machina. The trailer has premiered and features Star Wars: Episode VII actors Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb Smith and Oscar Isaac as CEO Nathan Bateman. Playing the role of the robot is Alicia Vikander.

Caleb Smith (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 (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), an astonishing A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive––and more deceptive–– than the two men could have imagined.

Ex Machina hits theaters April 10, 2015.
