    Fun fact: You can actually stay at the Norwegian hotel where Ex Machina was shot...

    ***SPOILER ALERT***

    ...AND for an additional "Premium Accomodations" fee, you get to not be stabbed by sexy female robots or starve to death in a plexiglass trap PLUS continental breakfast. How cool is…
