Many of us have looked up into the night sky and wondered if there is anyone doing the same on a small planet in orbit around one of those stars. Yet for many us that is where we leave it, however for a long time scientists have been sending out greeting messages to deep space and even our early TV broadcasts would have traveled a long way by now, if there is anyone out there, it is only a matter of time before they respond.
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.

Arrival will be landing in cinemas this November.
