Denis Villeneuve, who has had several hit films including “Prisoners,” “Enemy” and “Sicario” is directing the film. Adams character is asked by the government to communicate with extraterrestrial beings after dozens of alien pods land on Earth. Jeremy Renner also stars as mathematician Ian Donnelly.
I am all for more alien centered films, but the state of movies has had me apprehensive. This teaser doesn’t say much, and if recent movie trailer disasters are any indicator (Ghostbusters, Star Trek: Beyond), that is a good thing. I only hope the extended full trailer that comes out next week doesn’t reveal too much. A good sense of mystery, sci-fi and post apocalyptic feel is all we need to be happy.
