A new trailer for a major Hollywood movie shot in Norfolk has been released.

Starring Natalie Portman, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Jennifer Jason Leigh, Annihilation is an adaptation of the 2014 novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer.

The sci-fi flick, directed by Alex Garland, was partly filmed on location in Holkham back in July 2018.

It follows a biologist as she signs up for a dangerous expedition into an environmental disaster zone known as Area X, where the laws of nature no longer apply.
