“Arrival” (former known as ‘Story of Your Life’), the film directed by Denis Villeneuve and starred by Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner got a release date a few weeks ago. Paramount set a release date for November 11th.
Yesterday, the website Norman Transcript got a chat with Eric Heisserer, the film screenwriter. They talked about all his projects, including Arrival, which seems to have a trailer being released soon.
Heisserer isn’t about to slow down, as his next film “Arrival” — based on Ted Chiang’s legendary short story “Story of Your Life” — is due to hit theaters in November. Starring Amy Adams (“Man of Steel”) and Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) — and directed by Denis Villeneuve (“Sicario,” “Prisoners”) — “Arrival” is a project Heisserer spent years chasing.
“Arrival” is a science-fiction film, based on the concept of humanity’s first contact with extraterrestrial life forms. Chiang’s source material is deeply rooted in linguistics, which doesn’t often translate well to the screen. Heisserer remains highly confident in the “Arrival” team’s ability to adapt “Story of Your Life” into an impactful film.
“It’s been my dream project,” Heisserer said. “Amy Adams is a revelation, and Denis elevated the story to work on a cinematic level beyond what I could have hoped.”
The official trailer for “Arrival” is set to arrive — pardon the pun — later on this month.

Yesterday several news outlet reported an on-set visit offered by Warner Bros., probably to make fans sure that Justice League will be different from Batman v. Superman. As you know, Amy will be back as Lois Lane – in a probably smaller part that she already had on BvS, due the huge cast and storylines to be developed, she wasn’t on set when media visited it for the reports. Checking up all the news that popped up, what do we know so far about the film?
Here’s the official synopsys:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash -— it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
Justice League was first planned as two films, but now its being developed as a single film only. It was retitled to Justice League (previously Justice League: Part One). Forbes has a very detailed description of the film’s plot. The film is set to wrap up in early September, with a November 2017 release date.
November will be a busy month for Amy. A couple of weeks ago it was announced a November 18th release for Nocturnal Animals. Earlier today The Wrap reported that Paramount will release “Arrival“- the new title for former Story of Your Life – on November 11.
The film, directed by Denis Villeneuve and co-starring Jeremy Renner, is based on the short story by Ted Chiang, “Arrival” will feature Adams as an expert linguist recruited by the military to determine whether a group of aliens crash-landing on Earth come in peace or are a threat.
She begins experiencing flashbacks that unlock the greater mystery about their visit.
Tom Ford’s A Single Man follow up Nocturnal Animals, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Kim Basinger, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, Isla Fisher, and Armie Hammer have now set a release date. The drama will open on November 18th in limited release. The film will expand further on November 23rd, before going wide on December 9th. It will gets a UK release on November 4th.
An adaptation of Austin Wright‘s book Tony and Susan, the George Clooney-produced film follows two stories, one of a woman who faces dark truths when reminiscing about her first marriage. The other story is found when the woman reads a manuscript from her ex-husband, which follows a man on a family vacation which turns deadly.
“That’s an amazing script. It’s going to be a trippy movie, really unique — because it goes back and forth between two completely diametrically opposed world,” Shannon told Indiewire last year. “It’s a real head trip, half of it set in the LA art world and the other half is this grimy crime story in Texas. I’m just in the Texas part, playing a detective trying to help Jake Gyllenhaal’s character solve a crime.”
