Annihilation (2018), starring Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac:
First full trailer out:
"The Shimmer" featurette:
Portman as an action star?
Fuck this shit...
LOL I get what your saying, but you never know.
I remember when Bruce Willis landed a role as an action star. I was like, the dude from Moonlighting?!?! GTFOH
He turned out to make quite a living at it.
Went nowhere at the box office... 4th place at $11 million on opening weekend, similar to Arrival, another "thoughtful" alien scifi piece with a female scientist lead distributed by Paramount a couple years earlier, but without Arrival's awards season buzz.
Meh. Who the fuck cares what the box office is? ***
Same guy who did Ex Machina, one of the best sci-fi movies of the last 10 years.
The highest grossing movie second week of February?
Fifty Shades Freed. Good luck with that.
***Annihilation wasn't made for a whole bunch of money, (40 million), so it'll do fine.
Anyone who was expecting this to be an 'action' movie, wasn't paying attention.
I likedMachina more, but this was a good movie if you wanted to go watch a sci-fi movie that makes you think. If you're looking for 'Independence Day,' sci-fi, wait for the summer.
The Black Panther is dominating at the box office.
Damn skippy....good sci fi is a rarity, and production companies still need to take the occasional risk in producing a niche market sci fi film. I also loved Ex Machina.... it is probably in my top three favorite sci fi films of the past 20 years along with Gattaca in 1997 and Children of Men in 2006. I heard that Her in 2013 starring Joaquin Phoenix is a very good sci fi film, but I haven't yet had the chance to see it.
Just watched it tonight (it is on HULU).
It seemed a cross between 2001, Event Horizon and Arrival.
So she was able to destroy the shimmer with the phosphate grenade, but not before it “impregnated” her (for lack of a better term). And now the two of them will live happily ever after, making shimmer babies?
Is this a Twilight prequel?
I thought it was pretty decent and similar to Arrival in many ways.
I enjoyed it but it was nowhere near as good as ex-machina
I think I need to give it a second viewing, I don't remember the ending
she dances with the fractal-being, but blows it up with the phosphate grenade. At the end, she meets up with the fractal-version of her husband and it is revealed she is fractal as well.
