The Fisherman

The Fisherman

Even if its story is a bit enigmatic, we love the look of Luke Saunders‘ colorful animated short film about a future in which sea creatures seem to have evolved into some sort of flying species who thrive off of electricity. It also turned us on to the cool new sci-fi channel DUST.

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.

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).

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

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.

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.
