Annihilation Trailer #2

annihilation

Here’s the latest trailer for Alex Garland’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Annihilation, based on the novel by Jeff VanderMeer. The movie stars Natalie Portman as a biologist who leads an expedition to Area X, an isolated region of wilderness that her husband (Oscar Isaac) had been investigating before falling ill. While this trailer maintains most of the mystery of the original teaser, it does come across as much more explicitly horrific and very much in the vein of the Alien and Predator movies. That being said, the eerie hints of the score by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury and the unique visuals seem like they will help provide a very different experience. Annihilation co-stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Benedict Wong and it hits theatres on Feb. 23rd. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    All I could think when watching that trailer was ‘I wonder did Isaac and Portman talk about their experiences working on the two latter Star Wars trilogies’
