Annihilation is based on the first book in the Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer. In the film, a biologist’s (Natalie Portman) husband (Oscar Issac) disappears so she makes the journey to the environmental zone where he disappeared. She makes the journey with a Psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), an Anthropologist (Gina Rodriguez), and a Surveyor (Tessa Thompson).
The film is directed by Ex-Machina’s Alex Garland and despite the fact that it’s taken from a popular novel, the fans seem to be generally excited for the film. It looks gorgeous and full of wtf moments that have everyone excited.
