Writer-director Alex Garland adds to his impressive resume of sci-fi credits (Ex Machina, Dredd, Sunshine) with this creepy and thought-provoking adaptation of the first book in Jeff Vandermeer’s Southern Reach Trilogy.
Biologist Natalie Portman leads a team of female scientists (including Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tessa Thompson) into a mysterious quarantined zone in Florida dubbed ‘The Shimmer’, where they discover the laws of nature have gone berserk. The local plant and animal life is mutating at a frightening rate, and the boundary of the zone is expanding… With nods to Alien and The Thing, Annihilation is a wonderfully eerie and original take on the jungle-survival thriller, packing a sustained atmosphere of dread, big ideas, and some genuinely terrifying moments.
