02:34Arrival - Trailerposted on August 17, 2016Columbia Pictures has just launched the teaser trailer for acclaimed director Denis Villenueve's much anticipated new film after “Sicario” – the mystery thriller “Arrival” starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker. Watch the trailer here at ClickTheCity.
I love the main idea it presented about time. It's heart breaking and amazing. It's not your average bombastic sci fi film but it will hit you at right spot as long as you immerse yourself completely to what's going on. The sound is suspenseful and added much depth to the picture. And Amy Adams is sublime, I just don't get it why she didn't get nominated for Oscars. Her acting was right there along with Sandra Bullock's character in Gravity.
Spoiler. The aliens in this movie are dumb, if the movie is claiming that these aliens are more advanced, then why the hec did they not learned the human language first, before their 'arrival' to planet Earth to avoid conflict due to miscommunication???? Instead these aliens kept squirting black inks.
I would suppose that most people will find the movie dragging, bordering on boring. But it's precisely the whole point of the film: bringing its audience to the same emotional and cerebral ride as the main characters in the movie took before they realize the full extent of the purpose why THEY "arrived". This is not your usual loud sci-fi movie; a lot of heart and soul are integrated in the plot (be forewarned that this is not your typical loud sci-fi thriller).
