Arrival Description

When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team - led by expert translator Louise Banks (Academy Award® nominee Amy Adams) – races against time to decipher their intent. As tensions mount between fearful governments, Banks discovers the aliens’ true purpose and, to avert global war, takes a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity. Oscar® nominee Jeremy Renner and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker co-star in this mesmerizing masterpiece with a mind-blowing ending.

Moving to the big city to chase your dreams is a classic American story. And every year, thousands of fresh-faced young men and women abandon their small town roots in favor of the uncertainty and chaos of urban life. DEAD ON ARRIVAL follows naïve newcomers who quickly learn that the city streets are not only teeming with excitement and opportunity, but also riddled with crime and violence. Caught in the hustle of city living, these innocent young adults are set on a dangerous trajectory the moment they set foot in a new city-they are DEAD ON ARRIVAL - unfortunate victims of their own ambitions and dreams.

Arrival Movie Reviews

  • Why hasn't Amy Adams won an oscar yet?

    This movie is absolutely astounding! I wonder how Amy Adams, once again, has yet to win an Oscar for her performance. You'll never guess the ending and when you finally understand what the ending in, it blows your mind. So beautiful and just no words.
  • To the Oblivious

    Reviewer who criticized the aliens not knowing English. First, you completely missed the point of the movie and WHY they were trying to teach us their language. Second, we're talking about a species that thinks outside the bounds of time and dimensions. English to them is the equivalent of ants communicating by scent. Can you talk to ants?
  • I didn't quite get it

    Okay I feel like an idiot here but I didn't quite get it. Were the flashbacks real or imagined? Was the call to Japan done by Alien influence or not. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it ( I think) but I just had way to many questions in the end, ah back to Adam Sandler movies I guess
  • unremarkable

    One can not see why this movie has been so highly rated, the filming is very well done and the acting as well but the plot seems absurd, aliens make it all way to earth only to be hidden in their block of rock with little idea of what earth is all about, and at this point the film drops into a well of clouded smoke which is best watched will smoking some weed..
  • Long, Depressing Movie With A Pointless Ending.

    The entire movie stretches on and on about little trivial stuff to appear intelligent, which makes you feel like the finally would make sense of it all and be amazing…NOTHING HAPPENED. What a complete waste of time. And the entire movie is so DARK like some kind of zombie flick, only IT’S NOT. I feel like the creator is trying so hard to be different, and the movie is, but in a bad way. HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED. 94% FRESH review…WHAT A JOKE. I want my 2 hours back.
  • Not for me

    Turned it off half way through couldn't get into it. Instead of alien encounter it was drawing circles with squids. Great actors poor story.
  • She can speak Farsi?

    😂😂😂😂😄😄😂😄😄😄❤️❤️✌️I guess Farsi speakers are as alien to Hollywood elites as aliens from another planet!😂😂😂I bet she can't say a single word in Farsi😂😂😄oh, Hollywood!
  • Fantastic!

    Science, intuition, language, hope, timeless. Wee it.
  • This is a joke!
