'Arrival' Returning to Theaters Following its Eight Oscar Nominations
Arrival is going to make a splash at the Academy Awards, which is fantastic for genre filmmaking. Denis Villeneuve's film has been nominated for a number of awards, including Best Picture. Paramount is going to give the film a well-earned victory lap, as they look to re-release it into theaters this weekend.
Having grossed $95 million and with a budget of $47 million, the film has been a roaring success, and does plenty to aid in confidence for fans looking to Blade Runner 2. If there's one shame to come out of all this, it's that Amy Adams was overlooked for a Best Actress nomination, both for Arrival and for Nocturnal Animals.
Read on for Paramount's press release for the re-release.
On the heels of receiving 8 Oscar® nominations for the acclaimed film ARRIVAL, Paramount Pictures is re-releasing the critically-acclaimed and award-winning film in theatres across the country this Friday, January 27. The re-release will include exclusive bonus footage featuring thought-provoking commentary and a behind-the-scenes look from Director Denis Villeneuve, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and other cast and filmmakers. The bonus features, which can only be seen in theatres, shed insight on the filmmaking process and creative vision behind the story. The film has earned over $170M globally since November.
In addition to its Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Director, the AFI, PGA, WGA, SAG, Critics Choice Awards, and National Board of Review have lauded ARRIVAL. The film’s star Amy Adams recently received the National Board of Review’s Best Actress award, Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Chairman’s Award and was honored by the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards with a career achievement honor.
