The highly interpretive and undeniably provocative science fiction drama Annihilation is written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) and stars Natalie Portman (Black Swan).

Biologist and former soldier Lena (Portman) is shocked when her missing husband (Oscar Isaac, Drive) comes home near death from a top-secret mission into “The Shimmer,” a mysterious quarantine zone apparently created by aliens that no one has ever returned from. Now, Lena and her elite team (which includes Greenberg‘s Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez and Creed‘s Tessa Thompson) must enter a beautiful, deadly world of mutated landscapes and creatures, to discover how to stop the growing phenomenon that threatens all life on Earth.

Generally admired by critics upon its wide theatrical release in April, 2018 (it garnered an 87% Fresh rating at reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes), Annihilation stalled at the $33 million mark at the domestic box office.

The Annihilation Blu-ray Combo Pack includes an hour-plus of bonus content. Natalie Portman, director Garland and other cast and crew take viewers behind the scenes for a deeper look inside the film’s stunts, intricate set design and breathtaking visual effects. The Blu-ray also boasts a Dolby Atmos soundtrack remixed specifically for home viewing.
