For a long time director Alex Garland kept his latest film, Ex Machina, well under wraps. All we knew was that it would feature secrets, betrayal and robots. Which, if you ask me, already sounded pretty badass.

Alas, the time finally came on Saturday at South by Southwest Film Festival for Garland to let go. And by all accounts, it was one of the hottest films on show!

Watch the awesome trailer for Ex Machina below.

For those who aren't familiar, the film, which stars Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac, follows a young coder who wins a lottery to spend a week at his reclusive boss’ sprawling estate. When he gets there, he finds that he’s to be the human component in a 'Turing Test'. He enters into a series of sessions with robot Ava (Alicia Vikander) to find out if she’s truly the perfect example of artificial intelligence. Then, as always, things start to get a little weird.

Anyway, here's what the audience thought about it!

Ex Machina is out in theaters April 10, 2015.
