Even before the likes of 2013’s Prisoners and Enemy and 2015’s Sicario (not to mention the currently in-the-works Blade Runner sequel starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling), French-Canadian film director Denis Villeneuve was already a household name back home: the 48-year-old is a three-time Genie Award-winner for Best Direction thanks to Maelström (2001), Polytechnique (2010) and Incendies (2011), all three of which also took home the annual Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television award for Best Motion Picture.

Now, after taking on Mexican cartels last year, Villeneuve is turning his attention to a decidedly different setting for his latest film: that of an extraterrestrial spacecraft on Earth. Dubbed Arrival, the flick stars Amy Adams as a language expert and Jeremy Renner as a mathematician, both of whom are tapped alongside other scholars to investigate a mysterious vessel’s arrival on Earth. Naturally, “Mankind teeters on the verge of global war as everyone scrambles for answers” while Adams and Renner’s characters “take a chance that could threaten their life, and quite possibly humanity.”

Arrival‘s first full-length trailer will debut August 16 while the film itself will premiere next month at the Venice Film Festival before hitting theaters November 11.
