Cinemaholics #53: Annihilation Review


Annihilation is now in theaters, and the Cinemaholics are ready to talk about it!

The new sci-fi horror film was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) and stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It’s loosely based on the novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer and this week, we dive right into if it’s worth your time or not.

Elsewhere on the show, we review new comedy Game Night, which stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams and Jesse Plemons, Mute, yet another sci-fi movie out this week and a Netflix original film starring Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux, and Joel McHale’s new talk show on Netflix, The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale.
