Alex Garland's sci-fi has been making waves on Netflix, but is one success enough to justify the streaming site's content approach?
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.
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).
