Denis Villeneuve’s ARRIVAL Is Giving Off A Strong Contact/Sphere Vibe

Movies In Focus is getting a really strong late 1990s Warner Bros. sci-fi vibe from Denis Villeneuve‘s Arrival. I’m getting hints of Robert Zemeckis’ Contact and notes of Barry Levinson’s Sphere. I really dig both those movies, I don’t have a problem with that.

The synopsis:

When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team – led 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.

The Trailer:

Arrival starring Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker is released in cinemas on 11th November.
