This week we also got released an international trailer for “Arrival“, and its a bit more spoilery than the previous one. It reveals quite a bit more from the time just before the aliens landed, Banks’ reaction, and the increasingly complicated attempts at communication.
There’s the official synopsis for Arrival:
When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – are 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.
Alongside the trailers, a pack of 12 posters has been released (and also started a controvery due its China poster). You can find it in our gallery, as well a new high quality image of Amy. Enjoy!
Amy Adams is dealing face to face with the mystery of a massive alien invasion on Earth in the first full-length trailer for Paramount’s “Arrival”, released a few days ago.
“There are days that define your story beyond life, like the day they arrived,” she intones at the start.
Adams plays an expert linguist who is called by the U.S. government to communicate with mysterious spacecrafts that have touched down — possibly provoking a global war with the aliens.
Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner and Michael Stuhlbarg also star. “Sicario” director Denis Villeneuve directs from an Eric Heisserer script, adapted from Ted Chiang’s short story, on which the film is based.
Alongside the first look of Amy as Louise Banks, USA Today published an interview with Amy and Jeremy Renner talking about Arrival. Read it below, also check HD screen captures of the teaser released yesterday, added in our gallery.
Aliens come to Earth again in the new sci-fi film Arrival, this time with an intimate, thoughtful tale rather than a destructive invasion.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) and based on Ted Chiang’s 1998 novella Story of Your Life, the intellectual drama with a genre twist (in theaters Nov. 11) stars Amy Adams as Louise Banks, a linguist hired by the government to decipher an extraterrestrial language when a dozen alien pods pop into the atmosphere and hover mysteriously near the ground.
“This isn’t a graphic-novel universe or creating a new universe. This happens in our world today, as it exists,” says Adams, who is in London filming Justice League, in which she reprises her role as Lois Lane. “Not having to transport myself to a universe where superheroes exist, which is also fun, really helped me ground the character and the experience.”
When the vessels arrive, Louise is a damaged woman going through some turmoil in her personal life, Adams says. “She felt real, like somebody I would know and somebody I would like to have a conversation with. Emotionally, the journey she takes in this was devastating to me.”
Plus, she’s very untrusting of the policies and protocol of her new gig: “You can tell she’s been down this road before in helping out the government and it’s turned out poorly.”
That said, Adams adds, “she absolutely needs this, probably more than she knows.”
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.
It’s been long-rumored that a sequel to 2013’s Man Of Steel was in the works at Warner Bros. and it was even more or less announced in an official press release back in 2014. However, three years managed to pass, and fans of the Last Son of Krypton were only treated to a semi-sequel in the form of Zack Snyder’s critically maligned Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which saw DC’s most iconic hero ever sacrifice himself for the greater good, albeit in a fairly anticlimactic manner, especially considering Henry Cavill was confirmed for an appearance in the currently filming Justice League shortly after the film’s release.
In the time since the Time Warner Investor Day announcement from CEO Kevin Tsujihara back in 2014, the studio seemed to shift their priorities, confirming and/or launching production on solo films for Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg, and even The Batman, but no word on a new Superman project… until today that is.
The Wrap is reporting that Warner Bros. has actively started developing the long-rumored Man Of Steel sequel. The untitled project still in its infant stages, so no further details were provided, but their source adds that: “Superman is a top priority for the studio and getting the character right for audiences is of tantamount importance.” Now, that should be music to the ears of many comic book movie fans worldwide. Also, while not explicity stated, it can probably be assumed that both Henry Cavill and Amy Adams will reprise their roles as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively.
Paramount Pictures released the first pictures of Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival, that coming strong for awards season and it’s constantly being listed on ‘most anticipated movies of the fall‘ lists
Starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and based on Ted Chiang’s 1998 novella “Story of Your Life,” the film follows linguist Louise Banks, hired by the government to decipher an extraterrestrial language when a dozen alien pods pop into the atmosphere and hover mysteriously near the ground.
Renner told USA Today the picture is like “if you blended a [Stanley] Kubrick and a [Steven] Spielberg movie” (which kinda happened with “A.I.“) and it’s not a “big Michael Bay alien movie.”
