Besides Alien Covenant, what other sci-fi movies are you all looking forward to?

I'm personally excited about Alita: Battle Angel that is coming out on July 20th, 2018. It's being written and produced by James Cameron.

Yep. Pretty much the only one.

Except for Star Wars VIII in December.

I totally forgot about Star Wars: Episode 8. I'll definitely be checking that out too.

Can't wait for Blade Runner 2049. I'm also very excited about Neal Stephenson's Seveneves hitting the screens in a couple or years. Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are on board to make the novel into a movie.


MemberChestbursterApr-04-2017 6:01 AM

@Rick the "whitewash" claims against "Ghost..." certainly are warranted, but I still wanna see that, too, lol.

@ninXeno "Under the Skin" is a good Alien SciFi Horror slow burner

Is Blade Runner coming out in 2017? I thought that was more 2018?


MemberOvomorphApr-04-2017 11:04 AM

Blade Runner 2049 is coming out on October 6, 2017.

It's supposedly going to be very good since it's being directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario, Prisoners) and produced by Ridley Scott.


MemberPraetorianApr-04-2017 11:09 AM

2049 and Alien covenant


o how can i forget!  , and....the new predator!

nin & logger I saw ghost if you liked Lucy you'll like Ghost much better.  The 3D eye candy is phenomenal and I'm not just talking Scarjo in a skin tight suit (even tho that is the best eye candy throughout)

DN - No wonder woman?  Gal Gadot put a lot of weight on to play her.  

Dark Nebula

StaffXenomorphApr-04-2017 2:54 PM

Don't worry I'll go see that too.

But especially Justice league since she will be there kicking some a$$e$ along with aquaman,baty,flash etc.

I'm sooooo glad they changed up Aquaman.  I was soo wondering how they were going to make him work for the movies.

MemberFacehuggerApr-04-2017 4:17 PM

My list is pretty much the same as Dark Nebula 

Just watched ghost in the Shell last wknd in 3D. It was good, but different.


MemberXenomorphApr-04-2017 5:07 PM

And what about Scarlets skin tight suit...leaves little to the imagination 

Stan Winston (deceased)

MemberFacehuggerApr-04-2017 6:28 PM

Valerian, Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2, Predator 4, Terminator 6, Rogue One 2.


MemberFacehuggerApr-04-2017 6:39 PM

Blade Runner and Ghost in The Shell, mostly because I think the backlash is ridiculous and I want the movie to do well because I want more anime adaptations.  

Also, has anyone watched The Expanse?  It's a surprisingly good sci fi tv series. 


MemberPraetorianApr-04-2017 6:57 PM

Hell yeah on Terminator 6 Stan Winston(Deceased)The series has been very troubled but with James Cameron back their should be little room for failure.Deni Villenueves Dune as well

MemberFacehuggerApr-04-2017 7:02 PM

Aside from ALIEN: Covenant, I also want to see Blade Runner 2049 (because I was impressed with Villeneuve's work on Arrival), The Predator, and Star Wars Episode VIII, but I'm not going mad with anticipation for them. I'll admit wholeheartedly to being a bit crazy about ALIEN: Covenant, though. I don't know what I'll do with myself after I see it--I'll have nothing to anticipate/obsess over.


MemberPraetorianApr-04-2017 7:02 PM

Rick thanks for giving Ghost in the Shell a thumbs up.I'm a long time fan of the property,more so for the Manga and Stand Alone Complex series then the original movie.I've been pretty excited and also concerned about the quality of the film ever since I first heard about it,and the recent reviews and poor box office more or less confirmed those fears,but I wasn't going to let it stop me from seeing and hopefully enjoying the Movie

MemberXenomorphApr-04-2017 7:23 PM

nin, it's worth seeing.  I would spend the money again to see it.

DW - The expanse is a decent show.  I kinda like the spaceship fights.  The last show I saw was the one where Pheobe station with the new life form in it pushed itself out of the way of the other ship (I can't think of its name)


MemberOvomorphApr-04-2017 8:16 PM


Blade Runner2 there are some others than i have forgot... :P


MemberOvomorphApr-04-2017 8:44 PM

Anyone seen trailers for THE VOID?       its like we finally got another legit the thing  meets the H.P lovecraft!


MemberOvomorphApr-04-2017 9:50 PM

I haven't had the opportunity to check out Ghost in the Shell yet, but I heard that it flopped very badly at the box office.

Many people on social media seem glad that it failed and blame the director's choice of "white-washing" the cast.


MemberFacehuggerApr-04-2017 11:54 PM


I like the grittiness of the expanse.  It seems like a pretty realistic portrayal of what life would be like in that world.  It shows just how vital basic resources like water and air are in space, and that living in the outer colonies would clearly be rougher due to a lack of those resources.  I also think the class systems are pretty realistic, like how the belters are the "low" class, basically doing the "grunt" work of the solar system like hauling massive ice chunks to sell for water. The politics are very interesting too, like how they deal with warfare and just how they manage everything overall.  The graphics are very well done, as you mentioned the ship fights.  I also like the different factions.  It's cool being able to "root" for someone.  I also think the proto-molecule is a great plot device.  It's something interesting I haven't really seen used before, and it's a cool way of getting into alien territory without just going "boom... Aliens!".  Definitely one of the most polished SyFy original shows I've seen and one of the best sci fi shows to come out recently.  


I forgot about the Dark Tower movie.  Definitely my favorite Stephen King series.  I'm looking forward to that.  


Im sad to hear the movie flopped.  I didn't get to see it this past weekend but am going see it this coming weekend.  I hope the numbers get better.  Leftist American SJWs seem to be the only people who have a problem with the casting, so maybe it will do better internationally.  That is part of the reason they made it less ethnocentric to Japan, so it would have worldwide appeal.  I think it will be a shame if it does poorly and the movie is actually good.  I was looking forward to this being to start of getting all the anime adaptations I've been dreaming of for years.  It sucks that people have to drag identity politics into everything.

Damn! I still haven't been able to scrub the movies from the off the beaten path scifi movie threads.
