Close Encounters of the Squid Kind

Before attempting to ride giant worms on far-off planet Dune, director Denis Villeneuve made first contact with extra-terrestrial octopi in the 2016 Best Picture nominee Arrival. Can Amy Adams (Man of Steel) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) decode an alien language before paranoid world leaders fire nukes at newly landed UFOs?  And is this the right time for the DC Comics reporter and Marvel superhero to indulge in office romance?  You’ll understand where Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart are coming from when you become a Now Playing Patron this October.
