The New Annihilation Trailer Is a Beautiful Nightmare

New Annihilation Trailer Alex Garland's Latest Spins a Gothic Sci Fi Yarn

The movie is helmed by Ex-Machina's Alex Garland. The film features a group of women - an anthropologist, a surveyor, a psychologist, and a biologist - who embark on a unsafe, secret expedition where the laws of nature don't apply. What isn't as clear is exactly how the other characters - The Psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), The Surveyor (Tessa Thompson), The Biologist's Husband (Oscar Isaac), etc. - are going to mesh with their book counterparts. However, this isn't the first time that a group of highly-qualified individuals have ventured into "The Shimmer" - a place where the laws of nature no longer apply - and it soon becomes clear to Lena just how risky this "disaster zone" really is. Listen to that conversation below... and watch the trailer above. This trailer feels very much like the result of the behind-the-scenes conflicts on the film, where producers are butting heads over whether the film is "too intellectual" for audiences.

Annihilation will be coming out February 23, 2018. While Ex Machina was a critical darling, it was only a financial success because of its low production cost ($15 million) and had niche appeal at the global box office.

Like Alien or The Descent (a 2005 all-female horror film which still holds the record for most onscreen dialogue said by women to women), Annihilation makes a villain out of mutation and the next stage of life.

Nothing screams sci-fi like a scientist with a gun - and that's exactly what the official trailer for Annihilation brings to the table.

In September, Paramount released the first trailer for Ex Machina director Alex Garland's next science fiction thriller Annihilation, showing off an expedition entering a freaky world.
