A journalist in a bullet  proof vest looks out in the night, standing in front of yellow lights.

In a near-distant future, a group of photo-journalists try to navigate American during the outbreak of Civil War, by Alex Garland (Ex-Machina).

Alex Garland, the seasoned director whose thought-provoking works comfortably span science fiction, horror and thriller, presents his latest film, an American dystopian Civil War drama. 

With a personal canon including 28 Days Later, Annihilation, The Beach and Ex Machina, and more recently working with Jessie Buckley on Men, Garland's work is known for its sociological depths, slick shots, and humanistic approach to potential dystopian futures. 

Civil War sees Kirsten Dunst as a photo-journalist, covering the outbreak of the rapidly escalating American Civil War. With Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla) and Nick Offerman.

In Garland's own words, the film is "a sci-fi allegory for our currently polarized predicament". The production budget for Civil War was $50 million, making it most expensive film made by A24.
