Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario), the film is based on Ted Chiang’s 1998 novella Story of Your Life with a script with Eric Heisserer (The Thing (2011)). 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.

“This isn’t a graphic-novel universe or creating a new universe. This happens in our world today, as it exists,” Adams said previously of the grounded approach. “Not having to transport myself to a universe where superheroes exist, which is also fun, really helped me ground the character and the experience.”

Jeremy Renner also stars in the film as a physicist, with the actor saying: “I haven’t played a smart nerdy guy. I thought there was a great challenge in that.”

Nice. Full trailer 8/16.

Definitely in my most anticipated along with La La Land, Loving, The Light Between Oceans, and Manchester by the Sea.

The short story this is based on is excellent. The trailer looked more actiony but I don't think the actual film will be. Cast and crew look great so I'm excited for this.

Id add in Hacksaw Ridge and Bill Lynn's Long Halftime Walk as most anticipated as well.

saw the trailer yesterday, knew it felt familiar but couldn't put my finger on it. really, really neat short story but i have a feeling it's going to be hollywood-ized what with all the explosions and soldiers in the trailer. shame because it doesn't need any of that.

Billy Lynn... looks like a television movie, which is a shame for an Ang Lee pic. Seems to pander to middle America, much like American Sniper.

The movie may not end up being that way, but I got that impression from the trailer.

Looks awesome, if it involves aliens I'm already 90% convinced to see it. The whole attempt to decipher their language/intentions angle seems neat.

This was great. It lacked some of the explanation that the book provided to really convey the concept. I can see it going over the heads of some people though. Still loved it. Glad the didn't add drama like the trailer implied.

Saw the trailer, and I thought it was Man of Steel meets Avengers.
