After the first look at Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner in Denis Villeneuve’s new sci-fi thriller ARRIVAL dropped a few days ago, now comes the teaser trailer.
Feeling more cerebral and emotional than FX-driven, there is an element that also feels like what we thought Interstellar was going to be like before it ended up being a convoluted mess.
Based on the short story “Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang, ARRIVAL takes place when mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe and an elite team is put together to investigate – including language expert Louise Banks (five-time Oscar-nominee Amy Adams) and mathematician Ian Donnelly (two-time Oscar-nominee Renner). Mankind teeters on the verge of global war as everyone scrambles for answers – and to find them, Banks and Donnelly will take a chance that could threaten their life, and quite possibly humanity. The film also stars Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker.
The full trailer debuts on August 16. It will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 2, 2016 and is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2016 by Paramount Pictures.
Here is the teaser:
