Natalie Portman Headlines Sci-Fi Flick ‘Annihilation’

Loved Ex Machina and 28 Days Later? This one’s for you then.

Alex Garland, the man behind those films, wrote and directed this upcoming sci-fi flick. Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman. She plays a biologist named Lena whose husband disappears. She puts her name forward for an expedition into an environmental disaster zone, but does not quite find what she’s expecting. The expedition team is made up of the biologist (Portman), an anthropologist (Gina Rodriguez), a psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), and a surveyor (Tessa Thompson). Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac also star in the film. The latter plays Portman’s husband.

Annihilation arrives in theaters on February 23, 2018. Check out the teaser trailer below.
