VanityFair.com — The stars of our Hollywood Issue dream cast their own biopics. Some requests are more realistic than others.
Behind the scenes of the cover shoot for the 2015 Hollywood Issue, the stars of the moment told Smith about who they’d choose to star in their personal biopics. Some had requests that might be impossible—Grace Kelly?—while others may have just hand-picked the biggest stars of tomorrow.
Written and directed by Alex Garland, Ex_Machina stars Oscar Isaac as a reclusive robotics scientist working on the promise of an artificial intelligence that’s indistinguishable from a human being. In this exclusive clip he introduces his experiment to Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a young and ambitious programmer.
Ex Machina, which also stars Alicia Vikander, is released in the UK on 23 January 2015 and in the US on 10 April 2015.
Slashfilm.com — Oscar Isaac is one of us, a geek through and through. But at this time last year, we had no idea. A year ago, Isaac was the star of a wonderful Coen Bros. movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, which was a big coming-out party for the actor. Before that he’d appeared mostly as stand out supporting character in Drive, Body of Lies, Robin Hood and others. Fast forward a year, and now we’ve not only seen him fly an X-Wing in the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and he’s also been cast as the ultimate mutant baddie, Apocalypse, in X-Men: Apocalypse. Those are two of the biggest franchise movies Hollywood has happening.
Isaac was out promoting his latest film, A Most Violent Year, and was asked about both projects. Turns out, he’s been an Apocalypse fan for decades and he still can’t believe he got to fly an X-Wing. You can watch the Oscar Isaac Star Wars and X-Men videos below.
Both videos come from MTV. First up, here’s Isaac talking about his shot in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer.
J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year has a new UK trailer courtesy of Icon Film Distribution. Written and directed by Chandor, A Most Violent Year stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Jessica Chastain (Interstellar).
Set in New York City during the winter of 1981, which was statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history, the crime drama follows immigrant Abel Morales (Isaac) and his family as they attempt to expand their business, but the violence and corruption of the city threatens to destroy their American dream.
Joining Chastain and Isaac are Albert Brooks (Drive), David Oyelowo (The Butler), Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle), Cataline Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) and Elyes Gabel (Interstellar).
