What You Need To Know: After a successful screenwriting career that saw him reinvent the zombie film and the space movie with “28 Days Later” and “Sunshine,” Alex Garland made one of the most confident and interesting directorial debuts of recent years with “Ex Machina.” For his follow-up, he’s sticking with ambitious sci-fi, albeit with a bigger scope and budget, with this adaptation of a book by Jeff VanderMeer. He’s assembled a superb cast, led by Natalie Portman, and has some atmospheric and fascinating source material to play with, something more reminiscent of Tarkovsky’s “Stalker” than most sci-fi movies.
Release Date: Paramount haven’t dated it yet, but it could end up with a date similar to “Arrival” in the fall.
