Last Tuesday, Paramount’s new CEO Jim Gianopulos presented at CineEurope in Barcelona an advance of the company’s upcoming films, including an extended look of Annihilation, Alex Garland’s film starring Natalie, Jennifer Jason-Leigh, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodríguez. Although the movie has not set a release date, the new head of the company included the film as one of its fall releases in a recent interview for The Hollywood Reporter:
What’s your ideal mix of movies?
It’s not so much the size of the movies. If you look at our fall schedule, we have Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! [with Jennifer Lawrence], which is a completely original film. Alex Garland’s Annihilation is finishing now, and there’s George Clooney’s Suburbicon and J.J. Abrams’ production of the new Cloverfield film. We also have Alexander Payne’s Downsizing.
I hope this means that we can see the film later this year. We will know soon…
