Watch the trailer for 'Ex Machina,' a sci-fi thriller from the writer of '28 Days Later'

If you're a sci-fi fan, you're probably familiar with some of Alex Garland's incredible work: he wrote the tense thriller Sunshine and the revered zombie film 28 Days Later. Now Garland is directing his first film, and the result is Ex Machina: a thriller about two men testing the intelligence of an AI inside a robotic woman's body. The men, played by Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson, both work for an "internet-search giant" — so it's easy to imagine what the film may be trying to parallel there — but the crux of the story appears to be around some strange emergence of sexuality and deception. This is definitely one to look out for. It'll be in theaters next year on April 10th.
