'Nightflyers' - Netflix Original series

“Nightflyers” is an adaptation of a George RR Martin novella of the same name. The story is set in the future where earth is almost destroyed and some of the best scientists, along with a psychic, are sent off to make first contact with an alien race they believe could save humanity. However, the psychic’s presence on the ship causes problems and scary vision, leading to the scientists having to save their mission, rather than the world.


'Pacific Rim' - Gigantic sea monsters invade

Guillermo del Toro directed “Pacific Rim,” a story where alien life appears, not from outer space, but from under the Pacific Ocean. The sea monsters, known as Kaiju, are so enormous, huge human-piloted robots, called Jaegers, are created to fight them. However, millions of people still die despite the robots and two unlikely heros are employed as mankind’s last hope against the Kaiju and an eventual apocalypse.
