Based on the earlier looks at Annihilation, Ex Machina director Alex Garland‘s upcoming film promises to be very thought-provoking if not perplexing. For one thing, Paramount and producers are worried that the film may be too smart for the average audience. In fact, this has led to some conflicts that have occurred on set.
It’s not clear what the end result will be, at least not until the film is released, but a new trailer should provide some clarity about the film. Or at least it should try to. Check it out below.
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Annihilation, the latest from Ex Machina writer and director Alex Garland.
The movie is based on author Jeff VanderMeer‘s Southern Reach trilogy, and stars Natalie Portman (Black Swan, V for Vendetta), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight, Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, Deepwater Horizon), Tessa Thompson (Creed, Westworld), Tuva Novotny (A War, Dag), and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ex Machina).
An official trailer for the upcoming science fiction thriller Morgan has been released by 20th Century Fox. We saw a teaser trailer for the movie just last month.
The movie comes from first time feature director Luke Scott, the son of Ridley Scott (who is a producer on the project). It stars Kate Mara (The Martian, House of Cards), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Atlantis), Toby Jones (Captain America, The Hunger Games), Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, Jane Got a Gun), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Sunshine), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight, Fast Times at Ridgemont High), and Paul Giamatti (Sideways, Cinderella Man).
A pair of featurettes have been released for Anomalisa, the stop-motion animated drama from Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation) and Duke Johnson (Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole, Moral Orel).
The new videos are brief, running only a minute long each, and introduce the film’s two main characters, Michael (played by Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and The Theory of Everything star David Thewlis) and Lisa (played by The Hateful Eight and Fast Times at Ridgemont High star Jennifer Jason Leigh).
