Ex Machina premiered locally at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and opened April 17 in Austin. Alex Garland previously wrote 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and Dredd. Oscar Isaac recently starred in A Most Violent Year and will appear with Domhnall Gleeson in December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
