In 2015 writer/director Alex Garland took us for one hell of a mind trip with his freaky science fiction work Ex Machina, and now with Annihilation, it looks like he’ll be doing it all over again.
Annihilation follows the actions of Lena (Natalie Portman), a biologist who along with a select scientific team comprising a Psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a Surveyor (Tessa Thompson) and a Linguist (Tuva Novotny) investigate a strange and harrowing scientific phenomenon.
Annihilation’s first trailer is a very eerie watch and offers audiences plenty of haunting questions. It’s bizarre premise and the promise of Garland’s unique directorial voice make it a thoroughly intriguing piece of cinema and you can be certain that we’ll be lining up to see it.
Annihilation will be released on February 22, 2018 in New Zealand and Australia and on February 23, 2018 in the US and UK.
