Watch: Arrival “Global War” Spot

Paramount Pictures released today the first teaser trailer for Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker.

Amy stars as Louise Banks, a linguist who is asked by the government to translate an extraterrestrial language after a dozen alien pods enter the atmosphere. She’s aided in her task by mathematician Ian Donnelly, played by Jeremy Renner, though personal demons will certainly make her task more of an emotional burden.

The drama is the latest from rising director Villeneuve, who has scored three consecutive critical hits with “Prisoners,” “Enemy” and “Sicario.” “Arrival,” which was originally titled “The Story Of Your Life,” will screen at both Venice and TIFF this year, making it one of Paramount’s most high profile awards releases.

The film opens on November 11. Watch the debut teaser below.
