  • Oscar Isaac talks about the robot in his new sci-fi movie…..

    …..Ex Machina! Wait — what sci-fi movie were you thinking about?

    Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and director Alex Garland came by the Samsung Blogger Lounge at SXSW to talk about the film Ex Machina, which follows a young coder (Gleeson) as he visits the home of his company’s eccentric CEO (Isaac), and learns that he must engage with an artificial intelligence in the form of a beautiful female robot played by Alicia Vikander.

    Check out the trailer:

    Director Alex Garland revealed that visual effects have advanced to the point where Vikander did not need to be covered in green or wear motion capture markers. They simply shot, and the visual effects artists added the layers of “robotics” around her.

    And, of course, since Gleeson and Isaac are both in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens we couldn’t resist asking them for some spoilers. We didn’t get much, but Isaac did seem to suggest that his character has the power to choke people Sith-style.
