Alex Garland’s Annihilation finally has a trailer.
Based on a novel by Jeff Vandermeer, Annihilation is one of the best horror novels to come out in recent years and is one of 2018’s most anticipated films. With a star-studded cast including Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Oscar Isaac, the trailer opens with a shot of a 5 woman team walking across a wide field and into a strange barrier.
Beyond the holographic/translucent wall is Area X – a surrealistic world cut off from our own, in which nature has returned in some bizarre ways. Portman’s character is tasked with figuring out what happened to her husband, who entered Area X, only to return hospitalized. Area X has a strange effect on anyone who enters it, and it’s up to her and the team to figure out just what the hell is going on.
Annihilation is set to hit theaters on 23 February 2018.
