A slick and tense trailer has arrived for Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival and it gives us a good look at extra-terrestrial threats to humanity. It’s a slow-burning descent from quiet menace to full-brown peril as the world starts to collapse under the mysteries surrounding the alien visitors. The trailer boasts a great soundtrack and drums up the intrigue through frequent shots of the aliens’ spaceships.
When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – led by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.
We’re very excited to catch Arrival when it hits cinemas on 11th November 2016. It additionally stars Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg and Mark O’Brien.
