Today, Paramount released the first trailer for Annihilation. The movie is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling books the Southern Reach Trilogy. It was written and directed by Alex Garland who also wrote and directed the critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller from 2016, Ex Machina starring Alicia Vikander, Domnhall Gleeson, and Oscar Isaac. Isaac returns in Annihilation playing another important role. However, the lead part goes to Natalie Portman who plays a biologist who's husband disappears into a disaster zone which is not what it appears to be. Rounding out the cast are some wonderful actresses including Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The strong female cast is sure to grab a lot of attention, but the unique and mysterious story is most intriguing much like Garland's previous works.
