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.

"An ambitious, challenging piece of work that people will be dissecting for years. Don’t miss it. "
- Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
"It’s a beautiful and haunting film, and another examination of what makes us human from Garland. "
- Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
"The result is daringly original and frequently beautiful, a shimmering treat from a singular intelligence. "
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"It is tough, bleak, brutally intense, and genuinely scary - not in the cutesy cathartic way of most horror films, but in a way that makes you ponder the nature of existence and leaves you with a pit in your stomach. "
- Matt Singer, ScreenCrush
"Drawing on mythology and body horror, Annihilation is an intelligent film that asks big questions and refuses to provide easy answers. Sci-fi at its best. "
- Jonathan Pile, Empire
"It’s one of the most arresting, affecting science fiction movies of the last few years, and certainly one of the best films to see release in 2018 thus far. It’s ambitious and haunting[...]."
- Clint Worthington, Consequence of Sound
"At once a gripping jungle survival thriller and an alluring sci-fi puzzle, Garland’s heady gambit confirms he’s one of the genre’s best working filmmakers. "
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
"For those willing to put in the effort, Annihilation achieves that rare feat of great genre cinema, where we are not merely thrilled (the film is both intensely scary and unexpectedly beautiful in parts) but also feel as if our minds have been expanded along the way. "
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Able to generate dread and awe with equal skill, Annihilation is an absorbing amalgam of genres and influences, all coming together to produce a dazzling creation as vivid as the hybrid life forms our heroes encounter on their perilous journey. "
- Tim Grierson, Screen International
"Liking "Ex Machina" is no guarantee of liking Annihilation or vice versa. In terms of tone, Annihilation is a close cousin to "Arrival." There’s the same dark atmosphere and bleak sense of discovery."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Its most impressive achievement may be how easily it welds the mechanics of genre and the cinema of ideas. Garland's movie has its grisly flourishes, but unlike so many thrillers that preoccupy themselves with spectacles of death, it's more interested in pondering the strange, inextricable link between creation and destruction. "
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
