Earlier this week, director Denis Villeneuve’s thoughtful science-fiction drama Arrival received eight Academy Award nominations, including ones for Best Picture and Best Director. Since the film was only a modest hit at the box office, Paramount is giving moviegoers another another chance of seeing the film on the big screen as it brings the film back to theaters this weekend.
If you haven’t seen it, I would strongly recommend that you get out to your local cineplex this weekend. Arrival is one of the smartest science-fiction films to come along in quite some time. And despite its almost cold cinematography, it is also one of the deepest emotionally resonant films of recent time. Amy Adams gives a performance that truly deserves all of the befuddlement that has come about in the last 24 hours over her not receiving an Academy Award nomination for the film.
On the heels of receiving 8 Oscar® nominations for the acclaimed film ARRIVAL, Paramount Pictures is re-releasing the critically-acclaimed and award-winning film in theatres across the country this Friday, January 27. The re-release will include exclusive bonus footage featuring thought-provoking commentary and a behind-the-scenes look from Director Denis Villeneuve, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and other cast and filmmakers. The bonus features, which can only be seen in theatres, shed insight on the filmmaking process and creative vision behind the story. The film has earned over $170M globally since November.
In addition to its Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Director, the AFI, PGA, WGA, SAG, Critics Choice Awards, and National Board of Review have lauded ARRIVAL. The film’s star Amy Adams recently received the National Board of Review’s Best Actress award, Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Chairman’s Award and was honored by the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards with a career achievement honor.
When mysterious spacecrafts 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.
