Following yesterday’s first look, Paramount has released the official teaser trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s alien invasion drama Arrival. Villeneuve, known for Prisoners and Sicario, has quickly become one of the most high-profile director’s currently working, and is now tackling a genre we are all no doubt excited about. Arrival stars Amy Adams as Louise Banks, an expert linguist who’s recruited by the U.S. Government when a mysterious alien ship enters Earth’s atmosphere. Along with Jeremy Renner’s physicist and an elite team, Banks is tasked with investigating and communicating with the spacecraft before time runs out.
Let me be straight, anything Villeneuve touches, I’m in. And as far as a sci-fi drama goes, the synopsis for the film couldn’t be anymore spot on. It’s a very welcomed change from the usual large-scale, alien invasion blockbuster we seem to be getting every year. There’s definitely a chance of that classic sci-fi cliche, but with Villeneuve behind the camera, we’ll be experiencing more of the unexpected, which is something his films are known for. And with the trailer revealing a full trailer next week, I’m counting down the days until we get to see more.
