Mutations | Creatures of the Annihilation Auction

Alex Garland’s cerebral sci-fi thriller Annihilation is, among other things, a movie about mutation – rapid, drastic change forced on lifeforms by a mysterious extra-terrestrial effect. This was epitomized by the strange and dangerous creatures encountered by the film’s protagonists, who must enter a quarantined, oddly kaleidoscopic zone known as “The Shimmer.” Creatures like an albino alligator with shark-like teeth, for example. Or strange, humanoid figures formed from plants. Or the movie’s featured creature: a monstrous bear with a skull-like face that distressingly contains warped human elements.

Christopher Lee | Vampire, Villain and Everything in Between

Throughout their careers, actors can portray characters with a multitude of different professions, backstories, nationalities. However, few actors have lived such a varied life themselves. Sir Christopher Lee was an exception. Before a career in which he would be officially crowned ‘The Centre of the Hollywood Universe’, he was in the RAF; conducted espionage in North Africa; and tracked down Nazi war criminals. He later found fame in Hammer horror films, playing Frankenstein’s Monster, The Mummy and Dracula, before moving to Hollywood and facing off against James Bond, the Fellowship of the Ring, and Anakin Skywalker.
