Annihilation

Annihilation

Director Alex Garland‘s (EX MACHINA, 28 DAYS LATER) latest work of thought-provoking sci-fi, ANNIHILATION, is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling “Southern Reach Trilogy,” and features a female-driven cast including Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac.

“Director Alex Garland blends high concept sci-fi with stunning visuals and a dash of horror for an exciting female-led film in ANNIHILATION.” (Screen Rant)

ANNIHILATION backs up its sci-fi visual wonders and visceral genre thrills with an impressively ambitious — and surprisingly strange — exploration of challenging themes that should leave audiences pondering long after the end credits roll.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

ANNIHILATION is some heady nightmare fuel, but its most striking quality may be how little it has in common with the current trends in mainstream science fiction.” (Buzzfeed News)
