The first photos from Denis Villeneuve‘s latest film Arrival debuted earlier this week, and they revealed a big oval shaped object behind Amy Adams. This is a movie about aliens so could it be a spaceship? Yup!
The first teaser trailer for Arrival has arrived (I had to)...
We don’t know a whole lot about Arrival, but what we do know is enough to make it one of our most anticipated films of the year: The new sci-fi drama (previously titled Story of Your Life) comes from Sicario and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve and stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and while we anxiously await an official trailer, the first photos have, well, arrived.
To say we’re excited for a new Denis Villeneuve film is an understatement. After the fantastic triple-threat of Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario, the director is moving on to the realm of sci-fi with Story of Your Life and Blade Runner 2. Before the latter arrives next year, we have the former to look forward to, with a cast that includes Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner — and it looks like it just got a title change and an official release date.
Now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has arrived in theaters, it’s time to start looking forward to another epic superhero battle. Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in just over a month, and though this international trailer features familiar scenes, it also offers some new footage, including a special moment between Black Widow and Hawkeye.
The new Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation trailer doesn’t offer up anything drastically different from the usual Mission: Impossible movie — Tom Cruise, shadowy government agents, an elegantly dressed woman kicking ass, insane stunts, an improbable task — but it does all those things (and does them all so well), it’s hard to not get excited for the upcoming fifth installment.
There’s a lot to like about Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the coolest thing about it is the way it reclaims the comic book part of the phrase “comic-book movie.” Rather than using these characters to do something “edgy” or “adult” or “important,” or sanding down their quirkier edges to appeal to as broad and mainstream an audience as possible, Age of Ultron doubles down on its source material’s geeky origins.
