Footage from Alex Garland's Annihilation wows at CinemaCon, but we now will not receive the movie until 2018... Alex Garland’s Annihilation Delayed Until 2018

It has been announced at CinemaCon that writer-director Alex Garland’s hotly-anticipated Annihilation has been pushed back until 2018.

The film – which had appeared on Filmoria’s 20 Alternative Movies You Must See in 2017 – will be distributed by Paramount Pictures, who made the executive decision. It’ll serve as the follow-up to Garland’s critically-acclaimed 2014 debut, Ex_Machina.

It wasn’t all bad for fans however, as they were treated to some first-look footage from the film, which has been thunderously received. Annihilation features a fantastic cast including Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, and Gina Rodriguez, and it details a rich narrative in which a biologist heads into an environmental disaster zone, armed with three fellow scientists, who are all in search of her husband. The beloved partner went missing on a similar expedition, so past tragedies could replicate themselves again.

When exactly in 2018 the film will arrive is currently unknown, but we’re hoping it’ll be sooner rather than later…
