The First Two Clips From “Arrival”

While everyone is talking about Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” today at the Venice Film Festival, much of that attention will shift to Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi tale “Arrival” when it has its world premiere on the Lido tomorrow.

Ahead of that, the first two clips from the Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner-led film have arrived. In the story, aliens have arrived in several large ships hovering over points on Earth. The government hires a linguist to help them communicate as mankind teeters on the brink of global war. The film opens November 11th.
