You’ve Gotta See This Trippy New Trailer For ANNIHILATION

More intensity from the director of EX MACHINA.

Up until now, the powers-that-be have played coy with what Alex Garland's Annihilation is actually about. Today we've been given a new trailer for the film that sheds a little more light on what kind of game Garland's playing, and ... well, this isn't what we expected at all.

Take a look:

This footage is mysterious, gorgeous, creepy and features an all-star cast of acting talent (including Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and Oscar Isaac). We cannot wait to dive into this thing when it hits theaters on February 23rd.

Here's an official plot synopsis:

"A biologist searches for her missing husband while on an expedition with a secret agency and discovers a dangerous creature lurking in the wilderness."

While we're waiting on Garland's film to arrive: have any of you read the novel? Without giving away anything important, how excited should we be for this one? Is this as good a pairing of director and material as we think it is? Sound off below.
