If Ex Machina was the promise of a great new filmmaker, Annihilation looks to fulfill it.
Alex Garland follows up his directorial debut with this adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer‘s the best-selling novel, an eco-horror thriller that boasts a spectacular vision with a (female-heavy) cast to match: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac. (Yes, Padme Amidala and Poe Dameron are co-starring in a sci-fi movie together.)
Annihilation opens in theaters on February 23, 2018.
