ANNIHILATION, the latest sci-fi creation from Alex Garland (EX MACHINA, 28 DAYS LATER), has a star-studded cast and beautiful visuals. The movie features Natalie Portman (V FOR VENDETTA, JACKIE), Oscar Isaac (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, EX MACHINA) and Jennifer Jason Leigh (THE HATEFUL EIGHT, TWIN PEAKS).

There was a teaser trailer a few months ago that introduces to the world of ANNIHILATION. The new trailer gives us much more of the story that propels Portman to enter something called The Shimmer to figure out why her husband, played by Isaac, is sick after his excursion into The Shimmer.

The world Garland is creating looks stunningly gorgeous. His EX MACHINA did win Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, so we do have high hopes ANNIHILATION will be just as breathtaking. There is also some sort of vicious creature hunting Portman and her colleagues once they enter The Shimmer that looks like some sort of rabid skeleton dog.

ANNIHILATION hits theaters on February 23, 2018.
