The sci-fi film is an adventure genre that has existed since the beginning of the cinema. In Western criticism, it is common to subdivide fantastic films into three types: light, entertaining, often comedy fantasy (fantasy; “Alien”, 1982, directed by S. Spielberg); Science fiction, which puts serious, sometimes philosophical problems (science fiction; “2001: Space Odyssey”, 1968, directed by S. Kubrick); Eerie, supernatural fiction, the so-called horror films (weird fiction; “The Exorcist” 1973, directed by W. Friedkin). The development of modern entertainment cinema made sci-fi films one of the leading genres.

15. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead People Do Not Tell Tales
Captain Jack Sparrow returns to the screens to fight against the mystical Captain Salazar of the Bermuda Triangle. To win the Sparrow will need a trident of Poseidon. What will happen next, you will know when the movie comes out.
14. Wonder Woman
The main superheroine of DC, Amazon Diana from Themyscira, finally got a solo film. The picture will show her history of the formation during the First World War. On the island of the Amazons, closed from the whole world, a plane with a handsome air pilot (Chris Pine) falls. Following him, Diana (Gal Gadot) goes out into the big world and tries to stop the war. The heroine, of course, is worthy, and Gadot fits perfectly into the role. And in general, to look at the “feminist” blockbuster shot by a woman (directed by Patty Jenkins) is at least curious. But after 2016, we are waiting for films on DC with caution. The trailer promises that “Wonder Woman” will be filmed in the same gray tones as “Batman vs. Superman”, but, unlike it, with a drop of humor. Thanks for that.
13. Thor: Ragnarok
In a new chapter of the Thor, you will more action, adventures, and superheroes. The spoilers hint that Thor will fight against Loki in order to be the ruler of Asgard.

10. Spider-Man: Homecoming
More recently, Spider-Man has moved to the Marvel. Therefore, its film series is again restarted in the first joint film by Sony and Marvel Studios. The film about the “supernova” Spider, praise to Saint Stan Lee, will not retell the history of formation (in fact, enough to kill Uncle Ben!), But simply tell about the next adventure of Peter Parker. This time he is confronted by a Vulture performed by Birdman-Batman Michael Keaton.
9. The LEGO Batman Movie
Batman from “LEGO. The movie”: cynical, resourceful and working only in black (or very, very dark gray). Now, this hero received a separate film.

And then there’s the Joker, Harley Quinn and Two-Face make a rustle at Gotham. It is already released.

3. Blade Runner 2049
Previously, we were waiting for the “Runner” with caution. But everything changed the chic film “Arrival” by Denis Villeneuve — the same director who shoots “2049”. Now we cannot wait to see not so much the second part, as the new movie of a director who so skillfully copes with clever Sci-Fi.
2. The Dark Tower
The movie is about Roland, who travels the world similar to the Wild West, pursues the Man in black and seeks no less mysterious Dark Tower.
The main strangeness of the movie is casting. African-American Idris Elba in the role of pale-faced Roland — the same sudden choice as an American Johansson in the role of Motoko. For the role of the gunman, Matthew McConaughe was named, which would fit perfectly into it, but now it is known that he plays Man in black. Let’s see what will happen, both actors are excellent and will certainly cope with the roles.
