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. To find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.
Last week, Paramount Pictures released the teaser trailer for Arrival. Today, we get the full trailer, which continues the story of linguist Banks as she races against the clock to stop alien annihilation on a global scale. This latest sneak peek further explains the alien invasion, how they communicate, and why other countries around the world may not have the patience to wait before all out war breaks the planet in half.
Jeremy Renner stars as a theoretical physicist who is trying to determine what the aliens really want alongside Banks. The story is based on Ted Chiang's 1998 novella Story Of Your Life, which was the original title of movie when it was entering production last year. This unique and timely story touches on the global community's fear of the aliens, as they share information with one another while harboring their own agendas. Jeremy Renner says that the film will show "the divide in the unity with people across the world". About the aliens, who are teased in this new footage, Amy Adams explains that these scenes involved "awesome puppeteers who ran around holding very long poles with big orbs on the end."
The supporting cast includes Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg and Tzi Ma, with Denis Villeneuve directing from an adapted screenplay by Eric Heisserer (Lights Out). The movie will hit theaters on November 11, going up against Universal's Almost Christmas, TriStar's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and EuropaCorp's Shut In. The movie will also debut just one week after Marvel's highly-anticipated Doctor Strange, which could be a huge hit this fall.
Shawn Levy and Dan Levine are producing Arrival through their 21 Laps Entertainment company, along with David Linde, Karen Lunder and Aaron Ryder. With this mid-November release, its possible this sci-fi movie could get some Oscar buzz as awards season starts heating up at the end of this year. Take a look at the full-length trailer courtesy of Paramount Pictures. We also have 12 posters that show the ominious space craft at various different locations around the world.
