Alex Garland’s 'Annihilation' Heads To Netflix Ireland & UK

Alex Garland’s follow up 'Ex Machina,' 'Annihilation' is set to be released on Netflix for Ireland and the UK. meanwhile the film will have a cinema release in the US.

Garland told Collider.
“One of the big pluses of Netflix is that it goes out to a lot of people and you don’t have that strange opening weekend thing where you’re wondering if anyone is going to turn up and then if they don’t, it vanishes from cinema screens in two weeks. So it’s got pluses and minuses, but from my point of view and the collective of the people who made it – [it was made] to be seen on a big screen.”
Directed by Alex Garland, based on the novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer. The film stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac.

A group of soldiers enters an environmental disaster zone and only one soldier (Oscar Isaac) comes back out alive, though he is grievously injured. In an attempt to save his life, his wife Lena (Natalie Portman), a biologist, volunteers for another expedition into the zone to figure out what happened to him.

'Annihilationon' will be on Netflix UK on Monday 12 March, February 23, 2018 for the US.
