(2018) dir Alex Garland w/Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez, Tuva Novotny, Oscar Isaac [115 min; DCP]
We’re excited that Paramount Pictures has recently been backing some truly audacious filmmaking – with this weekend’s films being two of the results. In ANNIHILATION, a team of female military scientists and academics travel into a mysterious zone known as The Shimmer in an attempt to unlock its secrets. Taking undeniable inspiration from Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, sci-fi auteur Alex Garland (Ex Machina) nonetheless creates a fantastic visual style all his own for this adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s novel.

Staff Pick: Damon

“A lavish, magnificently unnerving visual feast threaded through with well-earned jump scares and real metaphysical force.” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

“Writer-director Alex Garland has made an atom bomb of a movie, fiery and all-consuming and quite unnatural. It fills every inch of our heads with its beautiful terrors.” – Andrew Lapin, NPR

“Alex Garland’s bracing brainteaser has the courage of its own ambiguity. You work out the answers in your own head, in your own time, in your own dreams, where the best sci-fi puzzles leave things. Get ready to be rocked.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
