And the Trailer of the Day Award goes to…this teaser for Annihilation, an adaptation of the first book of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach Trilogy.
A biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, and a surveyor walk into a
bar strange, isolated area known as Area X, where the laws of nature and of man seem not to apply. Eleven earlier exploration parties have entered Area X, but most the members of those teams ended up dead or deranged.
Much weirdness ensues.
The adaptation was written and directed by Alex Garland, writer and director of the excellent Ex Machina. Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, and Tuva Novotny make up the exploratory team.
Stong cast, talented writer/director, interesting source material. This could be next year’s The Arrival.
We have another long wait for this one. It won’t be released until 23 February 2018.
