Trailer: Annihilation

Novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland made an assured debut as director with Ex Machina, a contained and thought-provoking sci-fi thriller released in 2014.

Since then, he’s been working away on another genre film, Annihilation, based on a novel by Jeff VanderMeer. While details have popped up here and there, things have been rather quite from the production – though we now at last know when Garland’s movie will arrive in cinemas.

According to VarietyAnnihilation will emerge on the 23rd February 2018 – the release date originally occupied by Pacific Rim: Uprising, which has now moved to March.

Annihilation stars Natalie Portman as a biologist who, when her husband (played by Oscar Isaac) leads a mission into a remote, contaminated area where all kinds of unholy creatures lurk. Rounding out the rest of the cast are Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Here’s the first trailer…
