Annihilation — Extended TV Spot: 'Evolution'


added: Sat, Feb 3rd '18

"28 Days Later" screenwriter Alex Garland made a stunning directing debut in 2014 with his critically acclaimed A.I. robot thriller "Ex Machina." He's back later this month with "Annihilation," his second directorial effort. And from the looks of it, the movie is another head-scratching mystery thriller that will surely appeal to hardcore science-fiction and Natalie Portman fans alike.

In a newly released extended spot, we see Portman as a military researcher and biologist who is assigned to lead an expedition into "the Shimmer," an infected region near Florida that has not only been quarantined by the government but is enclosed by a strange, alien-like force-field that has, somehow, biologically mutated the ecosystem and wildlife. It's also potentially toxic to humans. And worse yet, the mysterious force-field appears to be expanding rapidly.

"It's destroying everything," says a highly distressed Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), who plays a scientist and a member of Portman's all-female research team. "It's not destroying," Portman retorts. "It's making something new."

Co-starring Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), and Tuva Novotny (Borg McEnroe) with a guest appearance from Oscar Isaac as Portman's military soldier husband, "Annihilation" is based on Jeff VanderMeer's best-selling and award-winning science-fiction book series, known as "the Southern Reach Trilogy."

"Annihilation" is slated for a February 23rd theatrical release. Watch the new spot, above.

Based on Jeff VanderMeer's best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman as a biologist who signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don't apply.
