Watch: First U.S. Trailer for Domhnall Gleeson’s ‘Ex Machina’

A24 has released the first U.S. trailer for artificial intelligence thriller “Ex Machina,” starring Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac.

Gleeson, who will be seen in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” along with Isaac, plays a programmer at an Internet search giant who wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s CEO (Isaac). He’s assigned to evaluate an experiment in artificial intelligence in the form of Vikander’s character.

The trailer hints at a sinister turn of events, with Vikander’s character asking, “What if I fail the test?”

Producers are DNA Films’ Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich. Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and former Film4 head Tessa Ross are exec producing.

Alex Garland directed from his own script.

Ex Machina” will premiere in the U.S. at SXSW on March 14, ahead of a theater release starting April 10.
