I think this one's just called Arrival.

Yeah it looks good. I'll watch Amy Adams in anything. Hell, I even watched the Underdog movie because she voiced a poodle in it.

Go back to sending me vaguely-worded death threats on Twitter, buddy... I only need a couple more before the police will take my report seriously

Those weren't threats. They were reminders. Reminders you asked for, Jorge.

I read the short story this is based on some years back. It's phenomenal (Chiang's entire collection is some of the best sci-fi I've ever read). I'm excited to see this, though it looks like they're adding an element of danger to a story that was entirely peaceful and without any major conflict. Book spoiler:

Spoiler: show
The aliens see in 360 degrees, and don't hold the linear concept of time that we do. The main character (now played by Adams) learns their language, and then their way of comprehending the universe in a non-linear fashion. I'm fuzzy on the details, but basically the short story has a neat twist at the end where it's revealed that she's writing to her unborn daughter from neither before her birth, nor after her death; she's gone beyond that perception of time, and her comprehension of her daughter's life is one of complete totality.

yeah, this movie's going to be nothing like that. all they're lifting is the idea of a human linguistics expert learning how to communicate with a race of aliens.

When you type "denis" into google, he's the second suggestion. I haven't seen any of his movies so LV is going to need to give us one of his classic 1-2 sentence breakdowns of why he sucks.

Well he did Sicario which I liked, and he's doing the blade runner sequel

Sicario and Prisoners were both well-directed but horribly written and conceived. Dumb as nails.

Enemy is just ridiculous garbage.

So far, he seems to be a strong, but braindead and self-serious, stylist.
