    The story of Annihilation follows the expedition of four women who are sent into the mysterious “Area X”, a portion of land in the United States that has been secretly quarantined due to abnormal activity. They are the twelfth expedition sent into Area X on behalf of the mysterious Southern Reach organization. The second expedition ended in mass suicide, the third in a hail of gunfire as the members turned on one another, and the eleventh expedition returned as shells of their former selves, all dying of cancer shortly after coming back.
    Cast : Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh

    Follow up to Ex Machina

    I wouldn't say I'm sold on the trailer alone, but I loved Ex Machina so much. I trust Garland.

  7. I hate how they crop their trailers for social media posts. Twitter supports widescreen aspect ratios!

    Anyways, I'm excited for this.

    I bought the book last year but never got around to reading it. Guess it's time to now!

    I loved Ex Machina and I love Oscar Isaac. Sold
  12. I’m interested in the movie because I really like everyone involved, but I did not like the books - especially the sequels - very much. So many great ideas that I thought were poorly executed.

    Did anyone else read about the mess that went on behind the scenes with them trying to screw with Garland’s cut and it ultimately going to Betflix? Glad it seems he got the final say, but bummed I’ll probably not be able to see this in theaters.

    edit: or will I?

    out of context reference Supporter

    Yeah, apparently the studio felt it was too intelligent for mainstream audience, lol. From what I read, one of the producers stuck by Garland's vision and fought for his vision.

    Stop showing entire movies in trailers! It's getting to the point where I don't even want to watch them anymore because I'm afraid how much they're going to show. I turned off the new Ready Player One 30 seconds in when it came out. Either way, this looks great -- really hope they're not releasing a dumbed down version.

    I'm so excited for this. I just started the book last night too.

    Fuck Paramount, I'm glad it sounds like Garland was able to keep the edit he wanted.
