I don’t know about you, but I have grown quite fond of Denis Villenueve. I was captured by Prisoners and found Sicario slowly winning me over, not to mention the upcoming Blade Runner sequel that has, apparently, cast every known actor. Well, now, seemingly out of nowhere, comes Arrival, Villenueve’s latest cinematic goodie. I had heard about Arrival only in brief snippets of info, but nothing had really taken my interest…yet.
Well, consider me interested.
The trailer, which you can find below, outlines the film quite nicely, showcasing what seems to be some very interesting performances from Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker. Again, I cannot fail to talk about the striking imagery and gorgeous cinematography that Villenueve’s films are often noted for.
The best part of this trailer is the fact that, from my best guesses, the trailer hasn’t given away too much. It grazes the notion of too much, but I don’t feel like it crosses that barrier. With it, my interested has peaked. I’m excruciatingly excited to see this film.
So what did you think of the trailer? Are you excited for Arrival? And what’s your favorite first contact alien film?
Arrival makes its way to theaters November 11.

I’ll eagerly awaiting the “arrival” of this one. As for my favorite first contact alien movie, I gotta go with “contact” (1997). Probably primed me for that one with word choice, lol. But I like how the mystery is prolonged throughout the whole film, it really reels you in and takes you on the adventure with Jodie Foster. What’s your favorite?
