Paramount releases Blu-ray details for ‘Annihilation’

It’s not destroying… It’s making something new.


The sci-fi hit film of the year is making its way to home video, as Paramount announces that Annihilation is set to debut on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD this May!

Directed by the man behind such sci-fi films as 2014’s Ex Machina and 2007’s Sunshine, Alex Garland creates a visually stunning yet puzzling film. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac, and follows a group of military scientists who enter “The Shimmer,” a mysterious quarantined zone that is full of mutating landscapes and creatures.

The Annihilation Blu-ray Combo Pack includes over an hour of bonus content. Natalie Portman, director Alex 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 the home to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead!
