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.

The marketing worries me. The short story is a small, intimate story with basically 2 or 3 characters. The marketing seems to be implying a much larger scale, and much higher stakes, which I think are likely to obscure and overshadow the themes from the original story, which are what make it interesting in the first place. Without them, it’s just another “aliens show up on Earth” story.
