Hello, everyone. I’d like to introduce you to the family film Smallfoot. It’s about a Yeti who goes on a quest to discover if humans really exist. Sounds cute, right? Also, it stars Channing Tatum. But don’t get too excited: you won’t be seeing his abs and dancing skills. Because this film is animated. Sorry, you’ll just have to use your imagination. The Smallfoot trailer is below.

Female-led heist films are officially a trend. With Ocean’s 8 and Widows coming up later this year, a third heist movie is now in the works from indie filmmaker Miranda July. The project is still untitled, but she’s managed to secure Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) as two of her lead actors, and the idea of those two co-starring in a movie is almost enough to convince me to see it sight unseen. What’s that? Acclaimed character actor Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water, Bone Tomahawk) is in this, too? Well, then count me in.

And Rodriguez will be doing more than donning the iconic red hat and trenchcoat of the criminal mastermind. Rodriguez will also be producing Netflix’s adaptation of the educational computer game and TV show.

Annihilation promises to be a cerebral science-fiction tale that could rival the acclaim of last year’s Blade Runner 2049 or even 2016’s Oscar-nominated Arrival. But why — with merely three weeks until the star-studded movie’s release — have we heard so little about it?
Alex Garland‘s adaptation of the best-selling Jeff VanderMeer novel has been shrouded in mystery mostly out of necessity. But worryingly, the reviews for the ambitious sci-fi film will remain under lock and key until the day before the film’s release. Thank goodness, then, that social media reactions have started flooding in this week. So far, the critical reaction to Garland’s follow-up to his stunning directorial debut, Ex Machina, has been over the moon.
Below, we’ve rounded up the Annihilation early buzz.
We’re less than a month away from the release of Alex Garland‘s mysterious new movie Annihilation, and a new clip from the film takes you inside the nightmarish world of The Shimmer – a strange, dangerous area that’s slowly expanding and altering everything in its path. It’s all very weird and intangible, but one thing is for sure: entering The Shimmer isn’t going to be pleasant. Watch the Annihilation clip below.

Not too long ago, we released our collective list of /Film’s 25 Most Anticipated Films of 2018. Even though films like Avengers: Infinity War and The Incredibles 2 ended up near the top, our #1 film ended up being Alex Garland‘s new sci-fi thriller Annihilation.
Starring Natalie Portman, the film is based on Jeff VanderMeer’s first novel in the author’s Southern Reach Trilogy, and it follows a group of female scientists and scholars as they head into a strange phenomenon that has appeared on Earth known as The Shimmer. A new Annihilation featurette explains a little more what appears to be happening in The Shimmer, and it doesn’t sound great for the human race. Read More »
