The first trailer for 'Annihilation' looks incredible

Annihilation's new trailer gives us more insight into Portman's character's battle to save her husband from an unknown attack and figure out what's happening to their world. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later).

"When I wrote this, I knew there was going to be a trilogy, but I hadn't read the other two books". Ex Machina is one of the smartest and creepiest science fiction films I've ever seen.

In the story, a team of four women set out on an expedition into Area X, a misunderstood region of lethal, weird anomalies and contradictory aspects to the known world.

Watch the trailer in the player below. There are so many incredible things coming out of the comic book world, with new projects seemingly announced every day, so this is just a quick rundown of the five things that excite my inner fanboy. Today, the studio released a new trailer that shows off the utter strangeness of Area X.

The women of "Annihilation", comprising an unnamed biologist (Natalie Portman), a surveyor (Tessa Thompson), a psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), and an anthropologist (Gina Rodriguez).

Annihilation arrives in USA theaters on February 23, 2018.

While this trailer is full of stunning imagery and moments both gorgeous and terrifying, it all looks a bit louder and a bit more generic than VanderMeer's novel, which relegated much of the conflict to the Biologist's internal monologue and leaned on dread and foreboding rather than vicious creatures. According to reports, producer disagreements - including a behind-the-scenes tug-of-war on how the movie should have ended - led to a stalemate that ultimately pushed the film's studio, Paramount, to cut the unconventional distribution deal with Netflix in order to help defray costs.
