HOLLYWOOD (Conspiracy Talk News) – The small and big screen Movies you will want to see if you consider yourself a fan of science fiction.

2018  brings us some great blockbusters,  more discreet indie films and many more science fiction content that you will want to see over these months, where directors and screenwriters will let us see what lies ahead in that future technological scientist, some farther away that other.

In this new year we will have more opportunities to see superheroes (which are still fashionable), horror movies and a lot of science fiction. In the memory of all are tapes like Blade Runner 2049 or Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as well as others less known but not less interesting as “Colossal” (directed and written by Nacho Vigalondo and starring Anne Hathaway or Jason Sudeikis, among others) and “Life” (directed by Daniel Espinosa and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson and Ryan Reynolds).

2018 has a lot to offer, and to make sure you do not miss anything, we have compiled some of the movies that you want to save in your calendar.

The beauty of science fiction comes in all shapes and sizes. While some movies can focus completely on making you think or use the genre to make you reflect on a very specific aspect, others just want to entertain us with epic battles located in thfuture . The interesting thing is they try to do both. While it remains to be seen how any of these audiovisual contents will receive criticism, here is what the world of science fiction holds for us this year, classified from January to December.

This American action and science fiction thriller is the end of the trilogy The Maze Runner, written by James Dashner. It is starring Dylan O’Brien (who made his mark in the film scene thanks to his role in Teen Wolf).

 

Release date: January 2018

Morgan that puts us 300 years into the future. You will love (or hate) Agent Kovacs.
