Watch Natalie Portman in Ominous New 'Annihilation' Trailer

Annihilation stars Natalie Portman

In September, Paramount released the first trailer for Ex Machina director Alex Garland's next science fiction thriller Annihilation, showing off an expedition entering a freaky world. So naturally writer/director Alex Garland feels like a natural match for a film adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer's novel, a haunting and cerebral tale of an expedition gone terribly wrong. It looks like they've got it down, and if the film can emulate the book's more quiet abilities to creep under your skin, this is gonna be one hell of a movie. Ex Machina is one of the smartest and creepiest science fiction films I've ever seen. I read the book and I'm going to be honest, I didn't understand much of it, but it judging by the trailer it looks like it's transitioned well from the page to the screen. The trailer depicts a couple (Oscar Issac and Natalie Portman) who are both drawn to this unknown destination. "I really enjoyed the atmosphere, and I really enjoyed the prose, and I enjoyed the sheer originality of it". Unfortunately, Paramount Pictures has made a deal with Netflix that means that the film won't get a cinema release in all territories apart from the US, Canada and China.

The movie had been set for a United Kingdom theatrical release on 23 February, the same day as the US.

Nevertheless, he added, "From my point of view and the collective of the people who made it - [it was made] to be seen on a big screen".

Gujarat Assembly Elections Phase 2: All you need to know
There were several complalints made to the Election Commission against the electronic voting machines in and around Vadodara city. Ten per cent voting was recorded in two hours, an official said, adding the process will pick up as the day progresses.

Garland recently aired his thoughts about this whole debacle and unsurprisingly he's pretty upset about it. It's not a question of whether or not Annihilation will be a good film, but more about Paramount being afraid that the intellectual film won't be a big money maker at the box office.

Garland has not only helmed the film but also served as a writer of the project, which is slated to hit theaters on February 23, 2018.
