The only reason I checked this trailer out is because Alex Garland is the director. Ex Machina was an amazing film, so I’m intrigued… but it stars Natalie Portman.
I don’t know what happened along the way, but she has turned into death for me on film. I just find her performances flat and uninteresting. I think I realized it with the first Thor movie, and then her performance in Thor The Dark World bordered on painful. Now I see her in a movie and just go, “Nope. I’m good.”
… but Garland.
Ugh. It’s like a Sophie’s choice!
