The first trailer is out for Arrival, the new sci fi flick from Denis Villeneuve, the man behind Sicario. No. This is not a remake of the 1996 Charlie Sheen classic. In reality, the film, which stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forrest Whitaker, feels more like a spiritual sibling to films like Contact and The Abyss. Check out the trailer and see for yourself.

When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – are brought together to investigate. As mankind teeters on the verge of global war, Banks and the team race against time for answers – and to find them, she will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.
