Now this is one to get excited about. From the director of Sicario and Prisoners, both masterpieces of craft and unbearable tension, Denis Villeneuve. Arrival tells story of mans first encounter with beings from outer space.
I love first contact stories and this appears to be one laced in stunning photography, effective acting, and an unusual alien (potential) threat.
First up is the domestic trailer:
However the editing in this one doesn’t do the film any favours. Rushed and unusually jumbled at the end.
The international one though, is markedly better; giving better glimpses of the worldwide consequences and using slower cuts to give a better sense of plot.
Either way you are gonna want to see this come November 11th.
