Ex Machina was the gem in a month full of turds and it shined brightly through even the murkiest of situations. Taking an impressive special effects Oscar home this year, the film presented us with Oscar Isaac’s best performance to date and the same can be said for now Academy Award-winning actress Alicia Vikander, but it’s the writer/director Alex Garland that deserves credit as well for bringing such an impressive to life on the page and behind the camera.
Having Alex Garland and Oscar Isaac return for another film is great news for science-fiction fans and general movie fans alike. Isaac will be joining the talented cast of Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, and Tessa Thompson respectively. This is an incredibly impressive list of actresses Isaac is joining for the sci-fi thriller that centers around a biologist (Portman) who, “In seeking answers to her husband’s tragic disappearance volunteers for a government expedition into an area sealed off as an environmental disaster zone. What she discovers, however, is pristine wilderness, and a mysterious dark force within it.”
With Garland being well versed in sci-fi having written films like Sunshine, 28 Days Later, Dredd, and Ex Machina. Annihilation will begin shooting later this spring in London.
