Even More Annihilation Fan Art

It’s been a while since I saw so much creativity with a movie starring Natalie. Leon, V for Vendetta, Black Swan and the Star Wars prequels were the most loved by the fans so far, but I think Annihilation is next on this short list. Here we have a new batch of fan art seen on instagram and Tumblr in recent days:

Annihilation has been almost a week released on Netflix, and many of you will have occasion to see it. Natalie makes a powerful perfomance in it.

We have a few photos to celebrate it:

It’s been a quiet week in Natland, but here we have a few tidbits…

-It seems that there was a test screening of “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan” on Wednesday in USA, and some first reactions have appeared on Letterboxd. It’s likely that we can finally see the film by Xavier Dolan in the coming months (Cannes maybe?).

-Earlier in the week we were able to see Natalie on the set of Vox Lux. Here we have a Instagram video and a couple of new photos from that day:
