A Young Coder Blindly Falls for a Beautiful Female Robot in the Intense Second Official Trailer for ‘Ex Machina’

A24 has released the second official trailer for their upcoming sci-fi thriller film Ex Machina (previously) directed by Alex Garland, the writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine. The trailer features young coder Caleb Smith blindly falling for the beautiful artificially intelligent robot named Ava. Smith quickly goes from being the tester to being tested. It’s currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on April 10, 2015.

Caleb Smith (Domhnall 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 (Oscar 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), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined.
