New Trailer for Alex Garland's 'Annihilation' Brings Futuristic Horror

New Trailer for Alex Garland's 'Annihilation' Brings Futuristic Horror

Rather than have Portman run from the Predator (one with a passing resemblance to the predators of Alien), Annihilation has her grapple with the same question that sci-fi author Octavia Butler: What if aliens want to combine our genetics and create a new race-perhaps a better race-composed of the two?

A new trailer for Alex Garland's (ExMachina) next movie, based on Jeff VanderMeer's novel of the same name, illuminates the unusual threats facing humankind. The book itself revolves around the expedition of four women on a mission to map Area X, a section of land in the United States secretly quarantined for abnormal activity. The rules of the natural world don't apply within its borders.

Here we get to see Portman's character trying to find out what has happened to her husband. They are not the first group to attempt to explore and study the area and they're armed with the knowledge that terrible things have befallen every other group to enter.

'What I am detained for?' Comedian Hannibal Buress arrested in Miami
Buress, 34, made headlines this summer after hiring a lookalike to attend the premiere of "Spider-Man: Homecoming" in his place. When the officer declined, Buress became "angry and belligerent".

Natalie Portman stars as the Biologist, the lead of the story.

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. Today, the studio released a new trailer that shows off the utter strangeness of Area X. That doesn't mean Annihilation will be a bad movie (Garland is a smart filmmaker and Annihilation is a hard nut to crack!), but I hope the final film reflects the brainy, creepy novel and fills me with same sense of existential dread.

Annihilation opens in US theaters on February 23, 2018. The decision was made after, reportedly, a clash between the film's producers.
