The new trailer for Natalie Portman's Annihilation is stunning and unnerving

Paramount just sent us a brand new trailer and a few stills from the upcoming thriller "Annihilation". The film features a group of women - an anthropologist, a surveyor, a psychologist, and a biologist - who embark on a risky, secret expedition where the laws of nature don't apply.

If you're a fan of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach Trilogy of books (Annihilation, Authority, Acceptance), today is a good day.

Here's one to look forward to.

The film follows an expedition made up of five women who venture into a freaky place known as "Area X".

The women of "Annihilation", comprising an unnamed biologist (Natalie Portman), a surveyor (Tessa Thompson), a psychologist (Jennifer Jason Leigh), and an anthropologist (Gina Rodriguez).

Annihilation opens in theaters on February 23, 2018. All remnants of civilization are being reclaimed by nature, and the plants and animals that they come across seem to be weirdly mutated or changed. When fellow producer Scott Rudin (Lady Bird) refused to force Ellison's recommended changes on the film, Paramount made a decision to seek out a new global distributor over its concerns about Annihilation's box office prospects.

The new trailer shows Portman in the other "world", if that's the best way we can describe it. The change in distribution is in part a response to poor test screenings of the film, which reportedly caused producer David Ellison (Terminator Genisys) to become concerned that the current cut of the movie is "too intellectual" and "too complicated" to appeal to a broad audience.
