Many eyebrows were raised last week when Paramount were set to drop the UK cinema release of Alex Garland’s (Ex Machina) ‘Annihilation’, after striking a deal with Netflix.

Given the sheer quality of its engrossing new trailer, as it further teases its thought-provoking premise involving a dangerous expedition headed up by Natalie Portman’s (Black Swan) biologist, we’re holding out hope it still garners a limited release.

Also starring Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight) and Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), ‘Annihilation’ debuts on 23rd February 2018.
