Following the release of the filmmaker’s Oscar-nominated crime/thriller Sicario from just last year, French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve will be making a return to the big screen later next month – with the release of the science-fiction drama, Arrival. Starring Amy Adams (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice) and Jeremy Renner (Captain America: Civil War), the new movie based on the Nebula Award-winning 1998 short story “Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang, tells the tale of expert linguist Louise Banks (Adams) and her encounter with a global alien invasion on Earth.
Ahead of the film’s release, the full-length trailers and photos from the set of Arrival have teased viewers with brief glimpses of all the wonder and majesty soon to unfold in what appears to be a highly original sci-fi spectacle from a celebrated filmmaker. Hailed as a smart and striking tale of alien contact according to early critical reviews, Villeneuve certainly seems all set to deliver another stunning tour de force. On that note, the final trailer for the movie has just been released online.
In the footage featured above, distributor Paramount Pictures presents audiences with a final look at Arrival in what appears to be a careful blend of action set pieces and stirring psychological drama. As the film’s primary protagoinst tasked with discovering the intentions behind an enigmatic alien invasion, Adams works wonders as esteemed linguist Louise Banks. With a cast that includes Renner, Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Michael Stuhlbarg (Steve Jobs) at Adams’ side, it seems Villeneuve might well have created another modern classic here.

Serving as the the first science-fiction genre film that Villeneuve has tackled ahead of the release of his forthcoming franchise sequel Blade Runner 2049, Arrival has a lot to live up to ahead of its theatrical release later next month. But considering the impressive cast and crew standing behind the production, it’s seems more likely than not that Villeneuve’s latest will live up to the expectations and awards season buzz currently surrounding it.
Only time will tell how favorably general audiences will receive Arrival once it makes its way to theaters. Again though, by the looks of things, Villeneuve and company have created something truly worthy of notice and attention. Here’s to hoping for the very best, all the same.
Arrival will see theatrical release in the U.S. on November 11, 2016.
