The new trailer for Natalie Portman’s upcoming horror film Annihilation, based on the first book in Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, not only looks visually incredible, it also looks completely terrifying.
According to Wikipedia…
The book describes a team of four women (a biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, and a surveyor) who set out into an area known as Area X. The area is abandoned and cut off from the rest of civilization. They are the 12th expedition. The other expeditions have been fraught with disappearances, suicides, aggressive cancers, and mental trauma. The novel won the 2015 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 2014 Shirley Jackson Award for best novel.
Annihilation also stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac, while the film was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later).
