Out in Theaters this Week

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. 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 is out in theaters today. Check out the trailer below!

On a quest for immortality, King Louis XIV (Pierce Brosnan) captures a mermaid (Bingbing Fan), and attempts to steal her life force from her.

The blood drained from Daniel Rossler’s face as he was reading the words from a letter written more than 50,000 years ago. We gave away our freedom. We gave away our blood.

My time is here. The beast knows my blood, it knows my name, and the invisible messenger of my death from the sky is on its way now. I have but a few breaths left. Heed me … You must seek the beast in this place of evil and you MUST destroy it. I pray you find it. Barely able to hold the piece of paper in his visibly shaking hand. “Oh my God!”
