Interviews with Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Tessa Thompson, and Gina Rodriguez and writer/director Alex Garland
The Paramount Pictures and Skydance film Annihilation opens in theaters on February 23 and we recently got a chance to chat with the cast. We spoke to Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and writer/director Alex Garland. You can check out our interviews with the Annihilation stars in the player below.
In the film, Lena (Natalie Portman), a biologist and former soldier, joins a mission to uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X – a sinister and mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline. Once inside, the expedition discovers a world of mutated landscape and creatures, as dangerous as it is beautiful, that threatens both their lives and their sanity.
From visionary writer and director Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later) and based on the acclaimed best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Thor), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight, Anomalisa), Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok, Creed, Dear White People), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, Deepwater Horizon) and Tuva Novotny (Eat Pray Love, The Invisible).
Paramount Pictures and producer Scott Rudin (also a producer on Ex Machina) acquired the movie rights to Jeff VanderMeer’s entire 2014 trilogy. Annihilation, published in February 2014, was followed by Authority in May 2014 and Acceptance in September 2014.
