Sci-fi tends to be a genre that is dominated by explosions and massive death tolls, however, like Contact, Interstellar and The Martian, Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival seems to be aiming for the more visceral approach.
And it looks amazing…
When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead 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.
