If you think Amy Adams is the perfect person to entrust with the survival of the human race, then prepare yourself for Arrival. In the new, twist-filled sci-fi thriller, Adams plays brilliant linguist Dr. Louise Banks, who's tasked with the responsibility of decoding the complex language of the mysterious alien beings who just touched down across the globe. Along with the help of a mathematician (Jeremy Renner), she has to race against the clock to discover what they want before the war for mankind spirals out of control. Adams is already generating strong Oscar buzz for her role in Nocturnal Animals as well as this one, so plan on seeing plenty of her when award season comes around.
