New trailer for Alex Garland's Annihilation is here

New trailer for Alex Garland's Annihilation is here”

The Biologist is joined by four other women who set off to explore the zone behind the boundary, which seems to have been expanding - potentially trapping cities and states. As a book, the ending is a satisfying, but vexing stopping point in a trilogy, and I'm not sure anyone would be fearless enough to leave things as they happen there.

Watch the official trailer for #Annihilation starring Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac.

In an effort to find out what happened to her husband, Portman's character, simply referred to as the biologist, enters an environmental disaster zone where she encounters a number of odd plants, animals and other life forces that she wasn't prepared for.

Director Garland visualizes this freaky, unsafe place with stunning beauty and darkness.

He is charged with concealing of death, obstruction, second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property. The FBI says they have been sending "items of interest" to their lab in Quantico, Virginia, for priority testing in the case.

Annihilation is about a group of scientists - played by Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Tuva Novotny - who explore a unusual part of world where "occurrences" happen. The film is the second directorial effort from author-turned screenwriter-turned filmmaker Alex Garland, following his debut on the Oscar-winning artificial intelligence flick Ex Machina. They would do well to build the hype as the novels do. The focus on new life, as opposed to pure death, is a hallmark of female-focused science fiction.

The new trailer shares more footage, showing us more of the dangers that the crew faces, as well as convince me that I may need to take a chill pill or two before seeing this movie. Based on the trailers, Annihilation has a darker edge and hews closer to something like Andrei Tarkovsky's sci-fi mystery Solaris than Arrival anyway - and though that's intriguing news for cinephiles, it's probably not an encouraging comparison for anxious studio investors. And how far will humanity go to save themselves?

The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on February 23, 2018, which is a busy weekend at the box-office.
