Alex Garland’s new film adaptation has begun screening for the press, and the first wave of reactions are in.

Garland’s second directorial project after his Oscar-winning Ex-Machina, Annihilation is based on the first instalment of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy, and explores several genres, such as science-fiction thriller, mystery, and horror.

Annihilation is set for release on February 23rd.
