I didn't know this movie until now.
When the movie was released, people talked about how the spaceship resembled a popular Japanese snack. View attachment 260114
It seems that the director also admitted that it is similar
Arrival is one of my favorite sci-fi movies. It's unique and intriguing. I was very happy when it was nominated for an Oscar in the best film category.
Good to know this funny reference. Out of all things, he was inspired by a Japanese snack!
Great movie, great performance by Matt Daemon. It's slow, it's not an action movie, but when a movie makes a grown man cry It's because it has a strong message. I really like to watch this movie, the best movie of the year for me so far.

1) got those gigantic spacecrafts
2) immense desert views
3) some high-tech stuff like the helicopters with dragonfly wings, personal protection shield, tiny drone-like flying darts, the desert body suit which collects and filters your sweat, tears etc
Hopefully the 4K UHD disc, to be released next year, will have Director's Cuts/Extended Edition
It's also rumored that there's a Part 3 in the horizon
