Movie Review: #Arrival

The brainy and beautiful Arrival is also a powerful cinematic experience. Review by Matt Cummings WARNING: This review contains mild spoilers. If the cinema year of 2016 has proven one thing, it's that Hollywood still isn't afraid to let loose with an intelligent film while impaling us with big, dumb (and only sometimes enjoyable) action fare.

It is said to be a prequel, check out our exclusive interview with Heisserer for more info. John Carpenter's 1982 film of the same name was a remake of the 1951 The Thing from Another World.
