Caleb, a 24 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, wins a competition to spend a week at a private mountain retreat belonging to Nathan, the reclusive CEO of the company. But when Caleb arrives at the remote location he finds that he will have to participate in a strange and fascinating experiment in which he must interact with the world’s first true artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot girl.
From acclaimed writer/director ALEX GARLAND (28 Days Later, Sunshine) comes EX MACHINA, a chilling vision of the not-too-distant future of artificial intelligence.
In the mountain retreat of a gifted internet billionaire, a young man takes part in a strange experiment: testing an artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot girl. But the experiment twists into a dark psychological battle, where loyalties are torn between man and machine.
Ex Machina sounds like the story of every nerd’s dream come true, a robot girlfriend, rejoice!
Reminiscent of Steven Spielberg’s 2001 hit Artificial Intelligence, this film looks like an interesting concept in the Sci-Fi genre, nothing new but more intrigue into the workings of A.I rather than it’s blended integration into society. A deeper look into the circuits so to speak.
One to look out for in the upcoming months, the blurred line between A.I and human emotion and a conspiracy in the works. Ex Machina is set for Worldwide release on the 10th of April.
