(Natalie Portman), a biologist and former soldier, joins a mission to
uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X -- a sinister and
mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.
Once inside, the expedition discovers a world of mutated landscape and
creatures, as dangerous as it is beautiful, that threatens both their
lives and their sanity. Written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later) and costarring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac, Annihilation is based on Jeff VanderMeer's best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy.
“A lavish, magnificently unnerving visual feast. It’s the kind of film that leaves you dazzled, shellshocked—and not entirely sure whether your own moviegoing DNA hasn’t been altered a little in the process.”(Leah Greenblatt, EW)
