Alex Garland’s film adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s novel Annihilation remains, to this day, one of the most incredible and powerful cinematic experiences I’ve had this year. A stunningly beautiful film that isn’t afraid to showcase some of the most horrific visuals in recent memory, the film is, in my humble opinion, nothing short of a masterpiece.
Regardless of one’s thoughts about the film, nearly everyone is in agreement that the film is one of the most visually arresting offerings of the year. The gorgeous cinematography by Rob Hardy is bolstered by Mark Digby’s brilliant set design, culminating in a movie that is impossible to tear your eyes from.
To celebrate the film, artist Tomer Hanuka has released an absolutely jaw-dropping print for the film, which you can see below. Taking inspiration from Japanese art styles, including the work of Tadanori Yokoo, the prints practically explode with color, offering something amazing no matter where you look. While not cheap by any means (each variation is $400), these prints, which are limited to 20 copies each, are the kind of artwork that stands above a standard poster.
