Prepare for Annihilation. If you were unable to catch the film in cinemas – like us in the UK – and are without Netflix, then you’ll be glad to know that you’ll be able to nab Annihilation on DVD and Blu-ray on 29th May 2018.
Ignore the dreadful cover art that makes it look like a generic action movie, rather than the complex and thought-provoking sci-fi that it definitely is.
Best Buy will also be releasing the film exclusively on 4K, which Annihilation is definitely – surely -worth watching in.
Based on the novel by Jeff Vandermeer, Annihilation follows an all-female team as they venture into the Shimmer; a mysterious quarantine zone where no one returns from. Not fully, anyway.
It’s a mighty impressive story and the novel is a definitely must if you enjoyed the film, as it offers even more mind-fuckery. Excuse my French.
Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Oscar Isaac and Tuva Novotny. The film comes from Ex Machina director Alex Garland, proving that he is one of the most exciting currently working directors.
