Check out the teaser trailer of Annihilation below:
The story of Annihilation follows the expedition of four women who are sent into the mysterious “Area X”, a portion of land in the United States that has been secretly quarantined due to abnormal activity. They are the twelfth expedition sent into Area X on behalf of the mysterious Southern Reach organization. The second expedition ended in mass suicide, the third in a hail of gunfire as the members turned on one another, and the eleventh expedition returned as shells of their former selves, all dying of cancer shortly after coming back.
“Annihilation” is slated to arrive in cinemas February 2018 from Paramount Pictures, to be locally distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
