New Trailer for Alex Garland's 'Annihilation' Brings Futuristic Horror

"Annihilation" follows a biologist, played by Natalie Portman who signs up for a risky, secret expedition where the laws of nature don't apply.

Annihilation is based on the first book in the Southern Reach trilogy, Jeff VanderMeer's mysterious sci-fi thrillers.

Ex Machina left little doubt that Alex Garland was willing to take on some odd tales. Ex Machina is one of the smartest and creepiest science fiction films I've ever seen.

Watch the trailer in the player below.

'New drug lowers deadly Huntington's disease protein'
Huntington's patient Michelle Dardengo, of Vancouver, B.C., watched six members of her family die of the disorder. Professor Snell was part of the global team that identified the gene mutation that causes Huntington's in 1993.

Alan Trammell Wins Long Overdue Election To Hall Of Fame
While Morris' election was mostly popular back home, it caused some backlash in the larger community of baseball followers. He played on four World Series-winning teams, and his 162 victories in the 1980s were the most of any pitcher.

Josh Gordon Scores First Touchdown Since December 2013
Which is fitting for a winless team 13 games into the season, a team that has one win since the start of the 2016 season. It's just the second time this season that Cleveland has held a lead at the half.

In an effort to find out what happened to her husband, Portman's character, simply referred to as the biologist, enters an environmental disaster zone where she encounters a number of odd plants, animals and other life forces that she wasn't prepared for.

So, Paramount struck a profitable deal with Netflix for those outside the U.S., Canada, and China and the film will arrive on their streaming platform 17 days after its February 23 release. All remnants of civilization are being reclaimed by nature, and the plants and animals that they come across seem to be weirdly mutated or changed. This trailer feels very much like the result of the behind-the-scenes conflicts on the film, where producers are butting heads over whether the film is "too intellectual" for audiences.

The new trailer shows Portman in the other "world", if that's the best way we can describe it. When fellow producer Scott Rudin (Lady Bird) refused to force Ellison's recommended changes on the film, Paramount chose to seek out a new worldwide distributor over its concerns about Annihilation's box office prospects.

Directed by Alex Garland, the book series sounded interesting and fans of it were excited about the teaser, the cast is awesome (Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Oscar Isaac, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Benedict Wong)... so what went wrong with the trailer?
