THE BEST Science Fiction

Spectral (Trailer)

Spectral (Trailer)

It reads more like a video game plot than a feature film, but we’re still gonna watch this Netflix original film about a mysterious and nearly invisible force that’s been killing civilians in a wartorn city, and the special ops and scientific operation to stop them. Drops 12/9/16.

The Raid Poster

Valerian (Teaser)

Valerian (Teaser)

Luc Besson’s latest sci-fi film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets looks like a futurist’s wet dream, with eye-popping visuals, and a lighthearted, but action-packed world which brings back memories of his classic The Fifth Element. We can only hope it’s as much fun.

Hoshino

Hoshino

Stephen Vitale’s short is a fantastic entry into the realm of Star Wars fan films. It follows the story of a girl’s journey to become a Jedi master, but whose eagerness leads her to make a tragic mistake along the way.

Star Storm: The Destruction of Father

Star Storm: The Destruction of Father

Auralnauts reinvents the story of Star Wars in this mock trailer which stars C-3PO (or is it Creepio?) as the main protagonist, chopped up from bits of the original trilogy, prequels, and a commercial for breakfast cereal (which we still have a box of in the Awesomer office).

Robots Programmed to Kill!

Robots Programmed to Kill!

Corridor got their hands on a prototype of the year’s most hotly anticipated new toy, the Anki Cozmo Robot, and sent him on a mission to take on an army of angry machines, a couple of which happen to come from Anki’s biggest competitors. Behind the scenes here.

LORN: Anvil

LORN: Anvil

Hélène Jeudy & Antoine Caëcke’s animated video for LORN’s retrofuturist track envisions a future in which overpopulation is “cured” by making humans terminate their bodies, and upload their souls into a social network. Let’s hope Facebook doesn’t get any funny ideas.

Doctor Who: A Hero

Doctor Who: A Hero

For all of the good Doctor’s quirks and personality flaws, TheGaroStudios reminds us that this Time Lord’s efforts are ultimatelty for the betterment of the universe. A great, emotional tribute to one of science fiction’s longest standing heroes.

Westworld (Trailer)

Westworld (Trailer)

(PG-13) HBO gives us a better look at the A.I.-filled western theme park featured in their upcoming sci-fi/horror series, based on the classic 1973 Michael Crichton film. The process of making synthetic humans looks especially creepy this time around.

Reflections of HAL and Samantha

Reflections of HAL and Samantha

2001: A Space Odyssey’s HAL 9000, and Her’s Samantha are the two of the most famous artificial intelligences in the history of motion pictures. Tilmann Ohm carefully selected lines from both characters, and combined them to form a surprisingly coherent conversation.

Futurama: The Science of Comedy

Futurama: The Science of Comedy

Video essayist Kaptain Kristian takes a look at one of our favorite animated shows ever, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen and their writers infused the show with geek culture, intricate plots, one of the best comedic ensembles ever, and a balance of cynicism and hopefulness.

Children of the Null

Children of the Null

The Butler Brothers’ animated science fiction short is as enigmatic as it is haunting, as two children explore and learn about the strange and lonely world they face – a place which seems oddly devoid of human life.

INSIDE

INSIDE

The black and white style of artist Mattis Dovier’s animated short film reminds us of the primitive 1-bit shading style of the original Apple Macintosh, but it’s the haunting science fiction story about a man’s disturbing transformation that truly lured us in.

Space Story 2: Suicide Mission

Space Story 2: Suicide Mission

(PG-13: Language) After regaling us with a tale in which everything bad happens in space, Luc “Zapatou” Bergeron is back to delight us with a sequel, in which numerous astronauts, explorers, space pilots, (and Matrix dwellers) face off against ever worsening odds.

Eclectic Method: Sci-Fi Mixtape

Eclectic Method: Sci-Fi Mixtape

Remix master Eclectic Method combines a number of his already awesome science fiction mixes into a single meta-mix that runs a nearly 27 minutes long, and is worth every single minute of your time. Hit play and crank it up right now.

Sunspring

Sunspring

While much of the dialogue in Oscar Sharp and Ross Goodwin’s short film reads like an episode of Bad Lip Reading, it’s still fascinating to see what happens when you program a neural network to write a science fiction screenplay, after teaching it about the genre’s greats.

Transmission

Transmission

Jared D. Weiss’ fantastic animated short follows a creature and his dog who find a working old radio in the post-apocalyptic wasteland. Mike Westbrook’s haunting sound design perfectly complements its spare visuals to create a sense of tension and mystery.

Star Trek: Beyond (Trailer 2)

Star Trek: Beyond (Trailer 2)

The latest trailer for the new Star Trek movie reminds us that just because Fast & Furious director Justin Lin is behind the lens this time, that we can still expect the classic characters and alien threats we know and love. Here’s hoping they didn’t forget the humor.

Breakbot: My Toy

Breakbot: My Toy

(PG-13) The video for Breakbot’s disco-infused track mixes ’70s sci-fi elements to create a world in which men are replaced with creepy robots who do the bidding of their female masters. It’s like Westworld meets Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.

The Secret of C-3PO

The Secret of C-3PO

“The problem’s plain to see… too much technology…” Editor Luc “Zapatou” Bergeron combined footage of Star Wars’ least respected droid with Styx’s cheesetastic Mr. Roboto, a song that seems much more appropriate these days than when it was released back in 1983.

H Positive

H Positive

(Flashing images) An incredibly wealthy and prideful man is diagnosed with a terminal illness. He chooses to go out in a grand fashion by commissioning a Euthanasia Coaster, a roller coaster that theoretically induces euphoria before starving the brain of oxygen.

Veggies Can Kill

Veggies Can Kill

“It’s like Terminator, but with vegetables.” Régis Raffin’s hilariously odd music video for Republic of Rock N Roll’s Cyber Killer sees a dystopian future in which being a vegetarian is outlawed, and killer robots are programmed to hunt down and kill Earth’s remaining veggie eaters.

Hand Wars

Hand Wars

Elite Geek dug up this brilliant and hilarious low-budget Star Wars fan film from 1990, directed by Itami Rose. The literally handmade Super 8 film recreates scenes from A New Hope, shot entirely with hands in place of spaceships. (Thanks Jeremy!)

2084

2084

Director Taz Goldstein’s short film pokes fun of the trope of the all-knowing, all-seeing evil computers found in sci-fi movies like TRON. While this machine does its best to crush the will of all who encounter it, this particular subject seems impervious to its demands.

Toonocalypse

Toonocalypse

A race of cute and cuddly looking cartoon aliens lands on Earth, which leads some humans to welcome the creatures into their homes. But all is not as it seems in this brilliantly done live-action/animated sci-fi film by Owen Rixon and The 2D Workshop.

The iMom

The iMom

(PG-13 Language) Ariel Martin’s short film tells the story of a busy mother who leaves her children under the supervision of a cyborg surrogate. A disturbing vision of our growing reliance on technology, and proof that good science fiction doesn’t need to rely on VFX.
