Alex Garland’s Annihilation Trailer


After collaborating with Danny Boyle on 28 Days Later and Sunshine (as well as the adaptation of his own novel The Beach), Alex Garland went on to establish himself as an exciting filmmaker in his own right with his directorial debut Ex Machina. Now he is back behind the camera for his sophomore effort, Annihilation, based on the novel by Jeff VanderMeer. This looks like another intriguing sci-fi parable but it also seems like a more cerebral and surreal take on Predator that revolves around a group of scientists examining an environmental disaster area inhabited by dangerous, never-before-seen lifeforms. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac and it hits theatres on Feb. 23rd, 2018. Check out the first trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Fuck pre trailer teasers.

  • Jameson

    I was sold on this just hearing it’s the Ex Machina director, but fuck this looks good. It’s more visually stunning and I like the underlying horror vibe.

  • JC

    Love the look of it, Not sure about Natalie as a soldier type but whatever.

  • Justin H

    One of my favorite books series…very very hyped for this. Looks gorgeous so far.

  • Justin H

    Well, unless things have changed drastically from the book, she’s a biologist who got weapons training before being sent on the expedition to Area X. So only a sort-of soldier type.
