Alex Garland's new film, Annihilation, just got better; after adding the talented ladies Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Jennifer Jason Leigh, Garland will once again be reuniting with Oscar Isaac. In 2015, Garland's film, Ex Machina, featured Isaac in a creepy, tyrannical role. He played Nathan—a CEO who tries to perfect an AI (Alicia Vikander).

Annihilation will be going down a different role. Adapted from the Jeff Vandermeer novel of the same name, Annihilation will revolve around a team of female investigators as they journey into a mysterious forest known as Area X to search for the biologist's (Natalie Portman) husband. Isaac's role is not yet confirmed but it's possible that he could be the missing husband. Regardless of how much screen-time he has, the film has a stellar cast and premise that makes us impatient for the release.

With Star Wars Episode VIII and now this film, the waiting just got worse.

No release date has been confirmed.
