The movie will come back to theaters across the US starting this Friday, January 27. The new footage takes the form of commentary about the movie-making process from director Denis Villeneuve and stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. According to Paramount, this footage will only be available in theaters at first, though we imagine it would show up online sometime later.

Arrival's Oscar nominations include Best Picture and Best Director for Villeneuve. Its other nominations are for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing.

Adams was excellent in the lead role, but she did not receive a nomination for Best Actress. Arrival debuted in theaters in November 2016 and made more than $160 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
