If you know Taylor Sheridan’s previous screenplays, the drug cartel thriller Sicario and the heist movie Hell or High Water, then watching Wind River will occasionally feel like déjà vu. Character types, motivations, social commentary, even a couple of scenes (like a law-breaking interrogation in the back of a police car) reappear in a way that goes beyond an auteur returning to themes and ideas he finds particularly interesting. For the work of a first-time director, Wind River feels oddly familiar.

While there are any number of things to love about this weekend’s theatrical release of Arrival — and we do offer a few of them in our review of the film  —  one thing that doesn’t always find its way into the buzz is the career rehabilitation of Jeremy Renner. Renner has spent so much time the past few years playing interchangeable action figures that we almost forgot his talent as an actor. It’s been a long time since he’s been this likable.

‘Arrival’ Review: Amy Adams Takes an Emotional Sci-Fi Journey

The 50th anniversary of Star Trek this week really put in perspective just how long we’ve been living with the concept of extraterrestrial. In 2016, there’s something downright familiar about aliens, maybe because in most situations our conception of them remains rooted in our conception of ourselves: They look like us with pointy ears or a ribbed nose, or they don’t look like us, but they behave like us, with motivations and actions that are easily recognizable and understandable. One of Arrival’s greatest achievements is the way it makes alien seem alien again: Strange and inhuman and beyond the limits of our comprehension. It readjusts our thinking about what life on other worlds might be like. And in doing so, it also readjusts our thinking about what life on our world can be like.

With all the recent hubbub surrounding Birth of a Nation, the mounting Oscar chances for late-year prestige pictures, and a handful of possible blockbusters left on the schedule, 2016's film conversation has shifted away from a project that ought to be far higher up on everyone's watchlist.

Amy Adams Makes Alien Contact in the Full Trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Arrival’

If an alien species were to visit Earth with mysterious intentions, it just makes sense that we’d send Amy Adams to represent humankind. She’s empathetic, she’s approachable, she’s understanding, and she’s the total antithesis of the hostile and aggressive types we see facing off aliens in most sci-fi movies. (At least this is how I like to picture Amy Adams.)

The first photos from Denis Villeneuve‘s latest film Arrival debuted earlier this week, and they revealed a big oval shaped object behind Amy Adams. This is a movie about aliens so could it be a spaceship...

We don’t know a whole lot about Arrival, but what we do know is enough to make it one of our most anticipated films of the year: The new sci-fi drama (previously titled Story of Your Life) comes from Sicario and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve and stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and while we anxiously await an official trailer, the first photos have, well, arrived.

Jeremy Renner Really Wanted Hawkeye to Die in ‘The Avengers’

The general consensus among most Marvel fans is that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is the worst part of the first Avengers movie. It’s not that Renner is particularly bad in the role, per se — he just doesn’t have anything to do, and you needn’t look any further than Hawkeye’s great arc in Age of Ultron for proof of how terribly underutilized he was in that first Avengers outing. As it turns out, Renner himself is painfully aware of this fact — so much so that he went to great lengths to try and get Hawkeye killed off in The Avengers.

To say we’re excited for a new Denis Villeneuve film is an understatement. After the fantastic triple-threat of Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario, the director is moving on to the realm of sci-fi with Story of Your Life and Blade Runner 2. Before the latter arrives next year, we have the former to look forward to, with a cast that includes Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner — and it looks like it just got a title change and an official release date.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Star Jeremy Renner Debuts New Hawkeye Promo Art

Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye went from one of the less compelling members of the MCU team to one of its most endearing and delightful thanks to his expanded arc in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye is gearing up to return to the big screen in Captain America: Civil War, where he'll be pitted against his longtime partner and friend, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, in an epic battle between Avengers. And it looks like he's gotten a bit of a costume upgrade, as you can see in these new pieces of promo art.
