ICYMI: Trailer Roundup, Including the Intriguing ‘Arrival’

by

Another great week of some interesting trailers, especially this new one for the sci-fi drama Arrival.

Directed by the excellent Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners), Arrival follows an expert linguist (Amy Adams) who is tasked by the government to try to communicate with an alien presence which has landed on Earth, to determine if they mean to do humans harm. The film also stars Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker and Michael Stuhlbarg… watch the trailer below! It arrives in theaters November 11.

Allied

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard make a gorgeous couple in the tense first trailer for Robert Zemeckis’ World War II romantic thriller. Pitt stars as a U.S. intelligence officer Max Vatan who encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) during a mission behind enemy lines in Casablanca in 1942 to kill a German ambassador. They’re forced into a pretend marriage that develops into a real love eventually tested, when they reunite in London, by the pressures of war and the secrets of their past. Allied, which also stars Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, Raffey Cassidy, Charlotte Hope, and Jared Harris, hits theaters on November 23. Watch the trailer!

Hidden Figures

This incredible untold story centers on three African-American women who made history working on the 1960s NASA space program. Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world.  The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Watch the trailer! It opens January 13, 2017.
