Fear the poster for Annihilation starring Natalie Portman

Last month, we shared the new trailer for director Alex Garland's upcoming film ANNIHILATION, starring Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, and Tessa Thompson.

And if that surreal jaunt through some monster-infested LSD trip wasn't enough for you, today we have the film's official poster. The poster is simple but I dig it. I have a feeling that the final film is going to be quite bombastic, so underplaying that in the marketing is a slick choice.

Anyhow, you can check out the poster below along with the film's newest trailer and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think of the film thus far in the comments below or on social media!


Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide; the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, we join the twelfth expedition.

The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one another, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers―they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding ― but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

The film is directed by Alex Garland, based on a novel by Jeff VanDerMeer, and stars Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tuva Novotny, Gina Rodriguez, and Tessa Thompson.

ANNIHILATION hits theaters February 23, 2018.
