Amy Adams Has a Close Encounter in First Clips from Denis Villeneuve's "Arrival"
The first full clips have debuted from Denis Villeneuve's highly anticipated alien invasion movie, Arrival, and they show Amy Adams having an unsettling close encounter with some mysterious aliens:





We saw most of this footage in the first trailer, but seeing the clips in full change the experience, especially since Villeneuve is a documented master of building suspense. We can already see that the film is quiet and allows the tension to build organically, much like his previous films Sicario and 2013's Prisoners, which should make this first contact story a little different from the rest. And since the film stars veterans like Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner (and comes out smack dab in the middle of awards season), we have no reason to think this won't be great.

Opening quote
When mysterious spacecrafts touch down across the globe, an elite team – lead by expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – is 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.
