Amy Adams Chats With Aliens In The First Trailer For ‘Arrival’

Paramount have dropped the first trailer for Arrival, featuring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker. Check it out above!

Directed by Denis Villeneuve (the excellent SicarioPrisoners), and based on the award winning short story ‘Story Of Your Life’ by Ted ChiangArrival seems like an intelligent change of pace from the ‘Aliens arrive – all hell breaks loose’ that is often on display. This looks way more like Contact than Independence Day. 

Official Synopsis is below:

When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is 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.


Footage from the film received rave reviews from press who were treated to a preview earlier this year at CinemaCon, so there’s a good chance that audiences are in for a treat when Arrival hits screens.

Arrival hits Australian theatres November 10th.
