Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. The science fantasy action horror film was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later).
Portman 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 (Rodriguez), a psychologist (Jason Leigh), and a surveyor (Thompson). Isaac plays Portman’s husband.
Annihilation arrives in theaters on February 23, 2018. Check out the official trailer below. Portman sorta gives off Sigourney Weaver vibes circa Alien era. I love it.
