In this blog we will talk about 8 Best Futuristic Movies You Need to Watch.
One question has preoccupied humanity for centuries as much as that of the future. This has also borne fruit culturally and has led to countless literary, musical and cinematic debates on this question. The future has always attracted the attention of humanity. What about futurism? Some movies contain things about the future, even if not set in the future. We have compiled the best futuristic movies for you.
What is it about? The CW-7 refrigerant was the great hope. It should stop global warming. It just turned the earth into a lump of ice. After numerous people are frozen to death, hundreds of survivors are saved on a high-tech train that circled the earth. The passengers are clearly separated, however, into those who initially paid for their ticket and those who occupied the rear wagons before the train left. This not only leads to tension, but also to uprising. The film adaptation of the French graphic novel by the filmmaker Bong Joon-ho is a manic-brutal social criticism that oscillates between Western and Eastern styles, grabs, captivates and moves long after the film is over.
When aliens land in several places on earth at the same time, Colonel Weber puts together a team of experts to find out more about the extraterrestrial species. These include physicist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) and linguist Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) – together they should find a way to communicate with the aliens. A real mammoth task, and under enormous pressure. The complex characters have to be deciphered as quickly as possible in order to prevent troubled politics from going to war.
Without a doubt, Ex Machina is one of the most astute films about artificial intelligence, the urge for freedom and the human feasibility mania. In Alex Garland’s psychological drama, young Caleb wins a weekend with Nathan, the ingenious but shady founder of the Internet company Blue Book. Withdrawn in the middle of nowhere, he has created a lifelike robotic person: the pretty Ava. Caleb is supposed to find out for the billionaire how convincing she is as a person. The conversations and encounters between humans and robots are initially hesitant but quickly become intimate and familiar. And soon Caleb falls for the artificial girl who asks him to help her – namely, to escape.
What does it take to spark love? And is it really that absurd to fall in love with a machine when it reciprocates your affection? These central questions arise when the shy Theodore Twombly gets a new operating system that is entirely based on artificial intelligence. Samantha, as it is baptized, gets to know Theodore, advises him, helps him cope better with his everyday life and builds a relationship with him. Soon they both have long and intense conversations that make Samantha appear more and more human. It doesn’t take long and Theodore’s life without AI is unimaginable. Unlike many other genre comrades, the sensitive drama is bathed in cozy warm colors, narrated slowly and probably not only one of the best science fiction futuristic films, but also simply one of the best films of this decade.
What is this about ? They hadn’t seen each other in ages. Therefore Emily, Kevin, Mike, Lee, Hugh, Beth, Amir and Laurie are very happy to finally be able to spend a few hours together over a cozy meal again. The summer night also promises to be special because a comet is about to move across the sky. But it comes closer to the earth than expected and disrupts the cellular network, causes cell phones to break and the power to fail. There is only one house nearby that has lights on. There some of the party guests want to ask for help. The house looks very familiar to them as they approach – and not only that. The James Ward film is quite an insider tip. He juggles with thriller and science fiction elements, creates tension, futurism and always remains clever and witty.
Blade Runner 2049
It took 35 years for the cult classic Blade Runner to have a sequel. In this, director Denis Villeneuve and producer Ridley Scott staged Replicant K’s search for a child Rachel is said to have given birth to from the original film – a child he increasingly believes could have been him. A journey takes him through a destroyed and devastated world. Blade Runner 2049 is an elegiac and visually powerful staging that ponders what makes a person complete; what hubris it takes to rise above another living being and whether love can also be real, even if it has only been programmed.
The Wandering Earth
This futuristic movie isn’t really like what you’ve seen before. The sun ends. Soon it will puff up into a red giant. The governments of the world therefore choose to do the impossible. Our home planet is to be pushed to Proxima Centauri in order to rotate there around another sun. 10,000 gigantic rocket engines are supposed to ensure this – while people live in cities underground. But something goes wrong, the earth goes off course and threatens to collide with Jupiter. A motley group of heroes has to prevent that. The Wandering Earth by director Frant Gwo based on the novel by Liu Cixin is the first major science fiction film from China. It is bombastically staged, quick and easy good sci-fi entertainment.
Three years ago something hit a coastal area near Florida. Since then a shimmering wall has surrounded it. The organization Southern Reach repeatedly sent small teams of researchers to the so-called Area X, but they never returned. Now a group of researchers is sent in. There it meets a world dominated by nature, which, however, appears unnatural and distorted. The field also has an impact on the minds of women scientists – who cannot grasp what is happening to them and their environment. The film by Alex Garland is based on the novel of the same name by Jeff VanderMeer and is a uniquely surreal experience reminiscent of classics like Stalker and Solaris from Andrei Tarkowski.
