Sci-fi movies have a unique charm. People love them because it allows them to race their imagination. These movies depict fantastical representations of the present or the future. Filmmakers have also used such films to bring to light some of the most pressing societal concerns. 

2024 is set to be a great year for sci-fi movie fans. There's plenty of wonderful content on their way, from video and book game adaptations to original franchises. The year is almost halfway over. So, after researching, watching, and reading reviews, we have come up with a recommendation of 5 sci-fi movies that deserve your time. 

Get ready to stream them at home over a bowl of popcorn or your go-to beverage of choice.

  1. Furiosa (May 24, 2024)

Furiosa is the prequel to Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. It narrates the story of Imperator Furiosa before she became the war captain of Immortan Joe. This movie takes place 15 years before Fury Road. Anya Taylor-Joy plays the role of Furiosa, stepping into her character from young adulthood. According to the first reactions, the actor seems to have comfortably slipped into the role, depicting the rise of Furiosa as a leader. 

Another character worth appreciating is Dementus, played by Chris Hemsworth. He is the one who snatches away everything from Furiosa. Dementu's character with a strong murder-or-get-murdered mentality is truly worth watching.

  1. Dream Scenario (February 27, 2024)

Dream Scenario is a pessimistic comedy sci-fi film. Nicolas Cage plays an average professor, Paul Matthews, who teaches evolution theory to uninterested students. Matthew's life turns upside down when he starts to get recognition from people he doesn't know because of an incredulous fact: he has been appearing in their dreams, walking or doing nothing. 

This turn of events makes him famous. Matthews endeavors to use this fame to find a publisher for a book he has been wanting to write. However, soon, the dreams he's a part of become violent. He's no longer walking but committing crimes in them, making people afraid of him whenever they see him. This surreal sci-fi movie is marked by Cage's enchanting performance. Indeed, the movie will keep you glued to your screen until the very end!

  1. A Quiet Place: Day One (June 18, 2024)

A Quiet Place: Day One is a horror sci-fi movie set before the events of its predecessors, A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place II. Lupita Nyong plays Sammy, who visits New York and faces an alien invasion. The movie revolves around how she and a stranger, Eric, try to escape the city in time.

The film has lots of violence and near-death scenarios, but it certainly seems to be an exciting watch. Transporting viewers to the new setting of upstate New York, the movie vividly depicts the aftermath of an alien invasion in bustling cities. With its intense action sequences and near-death scenarios, it promises an exhilarating viewing experience. As the story unfolds, audiences can expect a captivating conclusion to the journey of the Abbott family, whose saga began in the prequels. 

  1. Kingdom of the Planet Apes (May 10, 2024)

Kingdom of the Planet Apes is the sequel to the War for the Planet of the Apes, released in 2017. The movie's story takes place three centuries after the previous one. The film offers plenty to watch. Director Wes Ball has described in detail an age where humans are reduced to living in the shadows as apes become the dominant living creatures.

Owen Teague, a young chimpanzee, and Nova, a young woman, try to discover how a future consisting of humans and apes will appear. Their journey is a harrowing one, in which Teague is forced to question everything that is known about the past. The movie is worth watching as it has equal amounts of emotional tension and fantasy violence.
