“Arrival” Sneak Peek, via USA Today

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.”

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.

A Man of Steel Sequel Might Be in the Works

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.

First Look of Amy on Denis Villeneuve’s “Arrival”

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.”

“Arrival” opens on November 11th.

‘An Object of Beauty’ Adaptation Finds New Writer

Amy Adams’ upcoming movie “An Object of Beauty” is back on track with Mike Goldbach on board to rewrite the script for the adaptation of Steve Martin’s novel, Variety is reporting.

Adams and Maven Pictures’ Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray launched the project in 2012 with Adams producing and starring. The book, published in 2010, follows the adventures of an ambitious entrepreneur who climbs from gallery assistant to gallery owner in New York City over a decade and a half. The story is narrated by her journalist friend.

Ned Benson had originally come on to write “Object of Beauty.” Goldbach wrote and directed “Daydream Nation,” starring Kat Dennings.

First Look at Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’

nocturnal-animals-3

Entertainment Weekly has the first look of Amy Adams on Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals. The thriller follows an art gallery owner, Susan Morrow (Amy Adams), who reads deeply (perhaps too deeply) into the words of her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) latest novel, one she believes is a threat and tool of revenge against her. Paranoia and fear ensue as Susan must discover whether or not words are just words.

Ford told EW that, in penning the adaptation of Austin Wright‘s Tony and Susan, he added much to Adams’ character — including by casting lookalike Isla Fisher as her story-within-the-story double. Ford is a man certainly interested in aesthetics, and Animals is lensed by Seamus McGarvey, whose back catalogue includes Godzilla, Atonement, and We Need to Talk About Kevin. The film also stars Armie Hammer, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, and Laura Linney — and is set to open on November 18.
