The Trailer For ‘Annihilation’ Just Came Out And It Features Three Of Our Favorite Actors

ADVERTISEMENT

I just saw the trailer for “Annihilation” and it looks like it may have everything I’ve ever wanted in a film: suspense, sci-fi, and Latino actors.

Paramount / YouTube

Yes, I said actors, as in more than one Latino. And, no, it’s not an low-budget indie movie. It’s the real deal, and it’s about freakin’ time.

The film reunites “Ex Machina” writer and director Alex Garland with the one and only Oscar Isaac.

Here’s the synopsis of the film, according to IMDB: “A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.” The film is based on the award-winning book by Jeff VanderMeer, and from the trailer we can’t really tell how much Isaac is actually in the film. From the looks of it, he is very sick. His wife, played by Natalie Portman, goes on a expedition to figure out what happened to him.

The film also stars Gina Rodriguez as anthropologist Anya Thorensen.

As we mentioned, Portman goes on a journey to some weird-ass place (where people look like plants, no joke) and takes a team that includes Thorensen. Based on the image Rodriguez posted on her Instagram, it looks like she gets into some real trouble — she does not look good.

Tessa Thompson is also in the movie!

This Afro-Latina (seen in “Creed,” “Thor,” and “Selma”) is also part of Portman’s team and plays a surveyor. I was pretty thrilled about seeing this addition because her work in “Creed” and “Dear White People” is incredible.

Several people on Twitter were pretty thrilled to see all these fabulous Latinos in one movie.

SAME!!!!

While this movie in no way fixes the lack of Latino representation in TV and film, it’s a good start. And we need more diversity in the arts asap.
