The new trailer for sci-fi thriller ‘Arrival’ has hit the internet, and got everyone very excited. Directed by ‘Sicario’ and ‘Prisoners’ helmer Denis Villeneuve (who is in the process of working on the second Blade Runner film, and fast becoming one of the hottest properties in Hollywood) the trailer is decidedly low key and focused largely on the emotional impact of the alien invasion it portrays.
Based on a short story entitled ‘Story Of Your Life’ by Ted Chiang, ‘Arrival’ follows a linguist, played by Amy Adams, who is enlisted to help contact the aliens who have landed on Earth. Despite her prowess in her own field, she is in no way prepared for the job being asked of her. Joined by Jeremy Renner as mathematician Ian Donnelly and Forest Whitaker as Colonel Weber, the ominous trailer shows us an alien monolith, but keeps the aliens themselves a mystery, whetting appetites a plenty in the process.
Arrival is scheduled for UK cinematic release on 11th November 2016
