Sci-fi fans should be very excited. Not only is there a new sci-fi movie with great reviews in Arrival, but we also have a lead female character that doesn’t come out with weapons blazing instead, she uses her words. Arrival tells the story of a woman who is hired by the United States military to communicate with aliens who have landed on planet Earth. This is an interesting premise as instead of immediately fighting, as what seems to be the norm whenever humans and aliens meet, humans attempted dialogue first. That combined with the lead character being a linguist shows a change in the trend of sci-fi movies. one that may lead to further interesting films.
