Annihilation made its way to CinemaCon on Tuesday, where moody footage debuted.
Portman's character gets emotional when her husband (Oscar Isaac) returns home after 12 months, but he's impassive, barely responding to her when she kisses him.

Matt Damon’s ‘Downsizing’ First Footage Puts American Life Literally Under a Microscope
Paramount surprised CinemaCon audiences on Tuesday with 10 minutes of Alexander Payne’s new drama “Downsizing,” a surprisingly high-concept movie from a filmmaker known for more grounded, down-to-earth moviemaking. How high-concept? Think a Payne-like version of “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” In the clip, which got a very warm reception from the crowd in Vegas, Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig play a married couple who attend a presentation about literally shrinking themselves. The pitch is made by Neil Patrick Harris’ character, who has already shrunk himself and now lives in a stunning home, bigger than he could’ve ever dreamed of in the. »
