Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez, and Jennifer Jason Leigh discuss how their new film, "Annihilation," might be the future of sci-fi.
Writer-director Garland's reputation will only be furthered by "Annihilation." Yahoo Entertainment talks to him about the film's all-female central characters, avoiding franchises, big screens versus small screens, and more.
"Without hitting it too hard over everyone's head, I wanted to acknowledge her contribution to this movement and societal change," Oscar winner Natalie Portman tells Yahoo.
Cast members say that Hollywood needs to be more diverse, even though the criticism might be misguided in terms of filmmaker Alex Garland's intent.
When writer-director Alex Garland read Annihilation, the bestselling science-fiction novel by Jeff VanderMeer, the filmmaker was struck by the sensation of being inside a dream. “What I did was, I took a really weird approach to the adaptation,” Garland, whose last film was the sci-fi sleeper hit Ex Machina, exclusivelyexplained to Yahoo Entertainment. In other words, Garland committed to an unfaithful adaptation, using VanderMeer’s work as inspiration (with the novelist’s blessing).
