“Language is the first weapon drawn in a conflict.” Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner are ready for the Arrival.
If you were given the chance to witness something no one has ever seen before, would you take the opportunity? In the upcoming sci-fi flick by renowned director Denis Villeneuve, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner get a first encounter in the Arrival. Check the Arrival teaser trailer below.
Amy Adams plays expert linguist Dr. Louise Banks while Jeremy Renner plays mathematician Ian Donnelly. The clip starts with the military recruiting Banks in the middle of the night. Boarding a helicopter, Donnelly greets Banks with a line from her book. Banks and Donnelly are enlisted for their specializations in the hopes of understanding the complex language of the alien visitors. Their mission as emphasized by the colonel is to communicate with the extraterrestrial guests and know what they want.
Ted Chiang‘s short story entitled Story of Your Life is the inspiration to the Arrival script by Eric Heisserer. Story of Your Life won Nebula and Sturgon Awards back in 2000.
Villeneuve’s Arrival hits theaters this November.
