The first trailer we saw for Annihilation was a trippy affair, showcasing a more cerebral and esoteric science fiction film. Today’s new trailer takes an entirely different approach, focusing on Natalie Portman and her crew battling strange monsters. Though it makes the film look entirely different from the first trailer, it’s no less impressive.
I can’t wait. Annihilation looks like a blend of high-thinking Sci-Fi with a monster movie twist (my favorite), with some impressive character work to boot.
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. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later).
Annihilation arrives in theaters on February 23, 2018.
