Wow, this actually looks amazing!

Annihilation is the upcoming sci-fi thriller/horror film by Alex Garland, the man responsible for Ex Machina. When the first trailer dropped, it didn’t reveal very much other than Natalie Portman (and crew) would be exploring some kind of… well, something. All in an effort to get answers about her husband. And that things would not likely go smoothly.

This new trailer gives us some more insight on the plot, including Portman’s husband being sick, a brief look at some of the creatures, and the name of the mysterious object itself, called “The Shimmer.” Also the very ill-fated line: “It’s not destroying, it’s making something new.”

From Paramount Pictures:

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later).

Annihilation hits theaters February 23, 2018.
