UK-Quad_AW_28198-Ex_Machina-720x540

What you may need to know:

1. Young coder Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson) is selected to participate in an experiment by evaluating the human qualities of a breakthrough in artificial intelligence created by Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac).

2. This is Alex Garland’s first film as director, having previously written The Beach (2000), 28 Days Later (2002) and Sunshine (2007).

3. @1:31 – where do the batteries go?

4. The US trailer is a little more spoilerific. A little too spoilerific to be honest.

5. The next time Gleeson and Isaac will appear together will be in something called Star Wars: Episode VII. Nope – me neither.

6. Broadsheet Prognosis: Blade Runner (1982) meets Her (2013).

Release Date:  January 23, 2015.

    I presume like me everyone was too busy scrutinising Domnhall Gleeson to mention the robot is played by someone called Alicia Vikander.
