The world that Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) creates is visually incredible and kept me on tenterhooks for the drama that this world was promising. I was left in no doubt that this truly belonged on the big screen, and from this angle, it reminded me how badly I’ve missed going to the cinema over the past 18 months.” - Josh Cole
