Adapted from the book of the same name, the upcoming science fiction thriller Annihilation looks mystical, confusing, creepy, and damn entertaining. In this first trailer, we see Natalie Portman try to make sense of some strange alien area. In the book, Portman’s character leads a team that will investigate a strange creature that caused a natural disaster, as well as attempt to rescue her husband, who disappeared in a previous mission.

Annilhilation is directed by Alex Garland, who recently worked on the excellent film Ex Machina. Safe to say we’re excited to see what he comes up with next. The movie hits theaters February 23, 2018.
