This Friday, Arrival, an English Drama movie with elements of mystery and Sci-fi, transcends upon theatres near you! If you are craving for some otherworldly stuff, then this film is definitely for you to watch. Directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Ted Chiang, this new Hollywood movie deals with an alien invasion and a linguist (played by Adams) who can communicate with them. As the film is all set to release this Friday, here’s all you need to know about it.
What is it all about?
As stated earlier, Arrival is a science fiction movie that deals with alien invasion and a linguist who can communicate with them. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) is a gifted linguist whose quiet academic life gets disturbed when 12 mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe. Soon, she is approached and requested to investigate this by communicating with the visitors. She and a mathematician named Ian (Jeremy Renner) race against time to find a way to communicate with the aliens as mankind teeters on the verge of global war. Pressure is also mounting from the U.S. government, and in this situation, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly humanity. Unlike other sci-fi films, this one is expected to be rather emotional.
Who is in it?
This English movie stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whiteker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mark O’Brien and Tzi Ma in the main roles. Each and every movie starring Amy Adams in the recent years has been worth a watch. Arrival is also expected to impress audiences.
Reasons to watch
1. If you are a fan of Sci-fi, then Arrival should not be missed. It’s an interesting mix of human drama and sci-fiction that we have seldom witnessed in our films.
2. Another reason to watch Arrival is the director, Denis Villeneuve. Best known for his films Prisoners, Enemy, and Sicario, Denis is one of the finest filmmakers Hollywood has today. His lush details and thoughtful filmmaking are what make his films worth a watch.
3. Amy Adams is another reason why you should catch this movie in theatres this weekend. Best remembered for her performance in Disney’s Enchanted, Amy Adams has given some remarkable performances in the recent years in her films that include Man of Steel (2013), Her (2013), American Hustle (2013) and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). Expect a compelling performance from her on Arrival.
