“Arrival” Could Be Awesome


I love me some sci-fi, especially of this variety. Looks like there’s a great mix of flash and substance. I’ve been fooled by trailers before, but I’m pretty damn hyped. The cast includes Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker.

Oh, and Denis Villeneuve¬†directed. In case you don’t know who he is, he was behind the chair for “Prisoners.” That alone is enough for me to see this. I love that film.

Villeneuve¬†also made “Sicario,” and he’s making the Blade Runner sequel.

Here’s the plot for “Arrival,” via IMDB:

A linguist is recruited by the military to assist in translating alien communications.
