Oh, thank Gods. This looks like good science fiction.
Amy Adams stars as Louise Banks, a linguist who is contacted by America to try and figure out how to communicate with one of twelve alien spaceships that have landed on Earth. As the people in charge of humanity respond mostly by attacking and thinking that the peaceful aliens are here to attack, Amy has to find some way to let the aliens know that #notallhumans are terrible speciest monsters that respond to everything with violence. Dennis Villeneuve, who you might remember from the rather brilliant Sicario, is directing the film, based on the book Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang.
Also, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker are in it.
The film opens this Friday, November 11th, 2016.
