One of the new movie releases in October 2016, Arrival stars a linguistics professor, Louise Banks (Amy Adams), who fronts a leading team of agents when enormous spaceships land in various locations across the globe. As countries waver on the edge of war, Banks and her troop must quickly find a way to speak and connect with the creatures from outer space. Eager to solve the secret, she takes a risk that could quite possibly put her life in danger, not to mention the whole of mankind. Unlike Villeneuve's previous works such as Prisoners and Sicario, Arrival isn't a dark or warped look at civilisation. Rather, Villeneuve takes a lighter yet still solemn tone with the ambiguity surrounding the arrival of the aliens.

He tries traditional medicine, but to no avail, so seeks healing and hope in a strange enclave, quickly discovering that the enclave is at the front line of a war against hidden evil powers fixed on obliterating existence. Dr. Stephen Strange must choose between his life of wealth and reputation or ditch it and protect humankind as the mightiest sorcerer that ever lived.
One of the most popular and recent DVD releases is A United Kingdom, which is based on the real-life relationship between white Londoner Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) and African law student Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) which began in 1947. A United Kingdom is an incredible story, based purely on historical events in which love and idealism are challenged by discrimination on both sides of the colour line. With superb warmth and idealism – coupled with excellent storytelling – director Amma Asante tells the romantic true story from our dreary post-war yesteryear.
