Here’s the second trailer for Alex Garland’s Annihilation.

This latest trailer is more action packed and overtly horror-centric than the first, and the novel for that matter, but given Garland’s involvement and some of the behind the scenes reports about producer concerns over the film being too intelligent, it’s likely that Annihilation will be a bit more quiet and subtle than that this trailer suggests. But even if it’s not and ends up being more James Cameron than Ridley Scott, Garland clearly has a fascinating and unique vision for a challenging story to adapt, and a great cast. Annihilation is one of my most anticipated films of next year, and luckily for us, the wait won’t be too long.

Annihilation will be released on Feburary 23rd, 2018.
