‘Arrival’ Teaser Trailer: Denis Villeneuve does Alien Invasion

FUCKKK. I. Am. All. About. That. Denis Villeneuve. LIFE.


The first trailer from Arrival, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the Ted Chiang short story Story Of Your Life is finally here. It looks like an Oscar contender wrapped in a high-concept blockbuster package, which is a way to say it looks great.

Paramount Pictures is releasing the film, which stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker, on November 11. A full trailer comes out next week but, for now, check this out.

And if you don’t get the premise from the trailer, here’s the official description:

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

Arrival, formerly Story of Your Life, opens November 11.
