Zane, an astronomer, discovers intelligent alien life. Directed by David Twohy. With Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Crouse, Richard Schiff, Shane. Last year’s Arrival was a remarkable movie experience in that it took the alien invasion genre to a new direction of sorts, stripping away the usual expectations of monsters and armageddon and delivering a story about, well, language of all things. The Arrival is a 1996 science fiction film about an astronomer who makes an astonishing discovery, only to have that knowledge nearly cost him his life.

But the aliens are keeping a deadly secret, and will do anything to stop Zane from learning it.
