And once again, it looks like they’re going to take over the world, and everyone will die, unless just one of us can crack their code and communicate with them. Have you figured out who it’ll be? Well, her name’s in the subject – it’s Amy Adams from Man of Steel!
She plays Dr Louise Banks and, after the alien crafts in the poster land around the world, she’s the cunning linguist recruited by the military to figure out whether they come in peace or are a threat.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Enemy, Prisoners), from a script by Eric Heisserer, who made turned Ted Chiang‘s short story into a full two-hour movie, the film also stars Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Nathaly Thibault and Mark O’Brien.
It’s difficult to say whether it’ll be any good based on this first trailer, but Arrival… er… arrives on November 11th in the UK.
