Annihilation is the next movie from Alex Garland, the writer/director of Ex Machina, and writer of Dredd, it is based on the Nebula Award winning novel of the same name. Cast: Natalie Portman as Lena, the Biologist Jennifer Jason Leigh as the Psychologist Gina Rodriguez as Anya Thorensen, the Anthropologist Tessa Thompson as the Surveyor Tuva Novotny as the Linguist Oscar Isaac as the Biologist's husband David Gyasi Sonoya Mizuno I can't find a description of the movie, so here's the blurb for the novel of off Amazon: Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide; the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, the first volume of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, we join the twelfth expedition. The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one another, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers—they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding—but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything. Trailer: I'm really looking forward to this, I loved Ex Machina and Dredd, and I've heard a lot of good things about the book. The trailer is definitely very intriguing.
