After watching Interstellar, Eric Heisserer, who wrote the script for Arrival, modified the ending. The original ending, where the alien heptapods left humans with blueprints of an interstellar ark, was scrapped after Heisserer realised that he needed to give more depth to the plot. Following the change, Arrival became another significant development to the cinema where a woman’s emotional intelligence heavily outweighs the intellect of the plot. With monumental plot-twists that change the entire perception of the film, Arrival carried underlying messages of unification, love, and overcoming great misery. Both films, iconic in their own standing, shattered the idea that sci-fi movies are monochromatic and proved that they too can have multiple layers of the idea that is conveyed. Interstellar and Arrival are definitely the pioneers of a new age of science fiction which will help gain traction with a greater audience and make cinema altogether have a more magnetic appeal.
