Paramount Picture (Mother!) released the first look at the upcoming film Annihilation. The sci-fi thriller is based on the first book of Jeff VanderMeer’s wildly popular Southern Reach Trilogy. Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later) serves as the film’s writer and director. Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, and Tessa Thompson star as the biologist, the psychologist, the anthropologist, and the surveyor who enter an environmental disaster zone as part of the latest expedition. The biologist (Portman) hopes to discover clues about her husband (Oscar Isaac), who had gone missing in a previous expedition.
Annihilation is set to hit cinemas in Australia on February 22, 2018.
