Sometimes the beginning of the week can be slow for geek news, but that hasn’t been the case so far.

Between the first teaser trailer for Annihilation (which I am instantly here for because it contains such faves as Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, and Gina Rodriguez) and the celebration of the re-issue of the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack on vinyl (with surprise cast reunion!), this has been a Very Good Week.
