As Usual, Earth's Only Hope Is Amy Adams In the Trailer For Arrival

Denis Villeneuve, director of critically acclaimed thrillers like Incendies, Prisoners, and Sicario, is bringing humanity on the brink of a “global war” with aliens in his upcoming film Arrival, and the only person who can prevent it from happening is an “expert linguist” named Louise. It’s the role Amy Adams was born to play.

Arrival, based on a short story by Ted Chiang called Story of Your Life, follows Louise and an “elite team” led by Forrest Whitaker and Jeremy Renner as they attempt to communicate with extraterrestrials before it’s too late.

I’ve been saying this for 10 years, people: if the planet is in trouble, you call Amy Adams first. This movie looks fantastic.

Why the fuck is it that just about every god damn movie about contact or arrivals; what have you, regarding alien life visiting earth always ends up in fucking war. I just don’t get it. Ok, explosions and missiles and navy fleets sell from a Hollywood pov, but fucking come on man. Is there no possible notion that they would just show up and be fucking chill about the whole thing. Walk around new york city and take in the sights... chill by the pool with a fucking margarita. It’s always this doom and gloom, they want to kill us, lets use inferior weapons on them bullshit.
