Lionsgate Home Entertainment has just added the scifi thriller Ex Machina to its release line-up, scheduling the stylish thriller for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in July.
After winning a competition to spend a week at the mountain estate of his company’s brilliant CEO (Oscar Isaac), programmer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) arrives to discover he has been chosen to take part in a study of artificial intelligence. Sworn to secrecy and cut off from the outside world, Caleb meets his subject, a beguiling and seductive android (Alicia Vikander)-and is plunged into an A.I. experiment beyond his wildest dreams in this epic thriller charged with heart-stopping suspense.
The Blu-Ray Disc and DVD will be offering up a series of extras, including an In-depth Behind-the-scenes Featurette called ” Through the Looking Glass that examines the story development, the cast and characters, the production design, cinematography and location shooting in Norway, costumes and makeup and finally, visual effects along with a wrap-up.
The discs also contain a Q&A with Cast and Crew from SXSW and eight Vignettes.
As another special, the release marks the first time a Blu-Ray Disc features DTS:X immersive audio technology. DTS:X, like Dolby’s Atmos, replicates and conveys the fluid movement of sound to create a richer soundscape than previously possible by moving sound to precisely where the mixer placed it.
“Ex Machina” will arrive in stores on July 14 and can be yours for $24.99 on Blu-Ray disc and $19.99 on DVD.
