Ex Machina writer and director Alex Garland is adapting Jeff VanderMeer’s apocalyptic novel Annihilation into a feature-length film. The plot follows an unnamed biologist (Natalie Portman), part of a team of women (including Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tessa Thompson) sent into Area X, part of the American South in the near future that’s been blocked off by an unknown force.

The evacuated landscape hosts bizarre mutations and a horrible reputation of explorers going and never returning, or if they do, they’re ridden with cancers. Portman’s character also has a personal motive; her husband (Oscar Isaac) was part of an expedition, and while something that looks like him came back, she’s not convinced it was really him.

Check out the trailer above and leave your thoughts below.
