Based on the story "Story of Your Life" written by Ted Chiang.


Interesting. Ditto on the cast.

I agree. And an interesting story. This is cerebral Sci-Fi, Will be a thinking persons film. Don't think we will be seeing any laser battles in this.

Is this a reboot of the Charlie Sheen one? I like that film somewhat.

Not a reboot, though that movie was a good one too. Early buzz about this film is that it has movie of the year potential.

I read a review on it by someone who's seen it (at one of the recent film festivals). Although the movie sounds somewhat silly, the cinematography looks fantastic in the trailer. And I have no doubt that the acting is really good. I look forward to seeing this film.

If you're curious:
Spoiler
The aliens have multiple eyes and multiple tentacles, kind of like an octopus or a squid. They have come to earth to bring some type of knowledge to humans.
