Denis Villeneuve specialises in delivering on the seemingly impossible.

In the last 10 years, he’s made his English-language debut one of the best thrillers of the last decade (Prisoners), given us one of the most satisfying-yet-confounding final shots in recent memory (Enemy), redefined how stressful traffic jams are (Sicario), expertly baked our noodles by cutting his sci-fi teeth on the adaptation of Ted Chiang’s cerebral short story ‘Story of Your Life’ (Arrival) and delivered a delayed sequel to one of the most beloved sci-fi epics and, against all odds, made it the original’s equal if not superior (Blade Runner 2049).
