I always thought that Deep Impact was the smarter person’s version of Armageddon; judging from the trailer it appears that Arrival may be the intelligent answer to Independence Day. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario) and starring Amy Adams, Forrest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner and written by Eric Heisserer from a short story by Ted Chiang, Arrival arrives in theaters on November 11, 2016. Check out the international trailer and a poster ↓.
