In our minds, there was no better genre film last year than Arrival. There are lots of reasons for that, but the main one is the film's dual nature. The first time you watch it is completely different than the second time, once you know its secret.

The final trailer for Arrival is here, and while it's a quick clip that incorporates footage we've seen previously, it serves its intended purpose by raising our already sky-high expectations for the movie. Bonus points for making the beats of the alien language feel like the ticking clock that's pushing the protagonists.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Arrival is the kind of science fiction film we dream of. It's got big stars, a bigger concept, and the longer it goes, the more it demands of its audience. The pacing is methodical, the story captivating, and filmmaking beautiful. You rarely have a clue where it's going -- but once it gets there, you won't be able to get it out of your head.
The verdict is in: The trailers for Arrival look awesome. Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Ted Chiang's "Story Of Your Life" is sure to provide a unique spin on the alien invasion film and 12 new posters give you an idea of its scope.
