Image of the Day: Revealing first poster for Ex Machina

Director Alex Garland (Sunshine, 28 Days Later) unveils the first poster for his upcoming sci-fi thriller, Ex Machina, with a sultry stare emanating from Alicia Vikander's curvaceous artificial life form.   This is the sci-fi screenwriter's directorial debut, and the film serves as a cautionary tale exploring the mysterious frontiers of A.I. technology and the perils of its integration into human life.

Here's the official synopsis:

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.

Ex Machina hits theaters April 10, 2015.  Are you intrigued by this enigmatic one-sheet?
