The fate of the world rests on Amy Adams’ shoulders in the brand-new teaser trailer for Arrival.
In the upcoming sci-fi drama, Adams plays a linguist expert named Dr. Louise Banks who suddenly finds herself recruited into a team tasked with investigating a mysterious space craft that’s touched down on earth.
Together, Banks and the team must investigate Earth’s newest visitors and race against time to find the answers they need to prevent a possible global war.
The short teaser definitely builds the anticipation for the full-length trailer set to drop later this month. In it, we see the moment when Banks finds herself recruited, and whisked away to prepare to make contact.
“Language is the first weapon is the first weapon drawn in a conflict,” says one of Banks’ fellow team members.
From there, the linguist expert’s role is laid out plain and simple: figure out what they want and where they’re from. Of course, getting the answers to those questions, is probably easier said than done.
We’re definitely looking forward to seeing what the full-length trailer has in store for us when it hits the internet on Aug. 16!
