AT ETERNITY'S GATE

OSCAR ISAAC (Paul Gauguin) is one of the great young actors of today. He gained critical acclaim, a Golden Globe nomination, and an Independent Spirit Award for "Best Male Lead" for his portrayal of the title character in the Coen Brothers' film Inside Llewyn Davis. The film premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Grand Prix award and also garnered Oscar Isaac the Toronto Film Critics Award for Best Actor. Isaac shows off his skills as a singer and performer on the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack, lending an element of authenticity to his portrayal of the struggling folk singer. After receiving rave reviews for his starring role opposite Catherine Keener in the HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero, Isaac went on to receive a Golden Globe Award for "Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film" and a Critics' Choice Television Award nomination for "Best Actor in a Movie or Miniseries." Isaac plays Nick Wasickso, the youngest big-city mayor in the nation, who finds himself thrust into the center of the fight for housing desegregation in Yonkers, N.Y. in the late 1980s.

In 2014, Isaac led J.C. Chandor's action-packed drama, A Most Violent Year, for which he earned the National Board of Review Award for "Best Actor." The film itself won the National Board of Review Award for "Best Film." The following year, Isaac starred alongside Alicia Vikander and Domhnall Gleeson in Ex Machina written and directed by Alex Garland. This science fiction psychological thriller tells the story of programmer Caleb Smith who is invited by his employer, the eccentric billionaire Nathan Bateman (Isaac) to administer the Turing test to an android with artificial intelligence. The National Board of Review recognized Ex Machina as one of the ten best independent films of the year.

Last summer, Isaac headlined The Public Theater's summer production of Hamlet. Most recently, Isaac was seen in Suburbicon (2017) alongside Matt Damon and Julianne Moore and Annihilation (2018) with Natalie Portman. Next up, Isaac can be seen in the Chris Weitz film Operation Finale, of which he also is credited as a producer, out in August 2018. He will also star in the Dan Fogelman film Life Itself opposite Olivia Munn, out in September 2018. Isaac recently wrapped filming on Triple Frontier in Hawaii alongside Ben Affleck and Charlie Hunnam and the Schnabel film At Eternity's Gate, due out in 2019. Isaac is currently filming the next Star Wars film, Star Wars: Episode IX, in London and was recently announced as the voice of Gomez Addams in the animated feature The Addams Family.

In 2016, Isaac was seen in The Promise alongside Christian Bale and in that same year he was seen in 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse. In 2015, Isaac starred as the Resistance pilot, Poe Dameron, in the highly awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh installment in the main Star Wars film series. Directed, co-produced, and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first of a trilogy planned by Disney, premiered in December 2015 and within two weeks, became the highest grossing domestic film of all-time. It is the fastest film to reach $700 million, and broke opening day box office records, domestic and worldwide. The Force Awakens has also earned the highest domestic second and third weekend ever, set a new domestic record for the biggest Christmas Day and New Year's Day box office haul, and became IMAX's second highest-grossing movie ever. Isaac is set to make his reprise as Poe Dameron in Star Wars: Episode VIII due for release in December 2017.
