By now, it’s almost a given that the most important movie of 2018 will be ‘The Dark Tower,’ a sci-fi epic that’s been getting a lot of buzz lately.
However, it might not be the most recent movie in a long line of great sci-fantasy movies.
Here are five films that are worthy of your attention.1.
‘The Expanse’The Expender is a science fiction film starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the main character, James Holden.
The film is set in a dystopian future where humanity has been overrun by the sentient super-beings known as ‘Epsilon.’
This alien race has a human colony on Mars, and has been living there for thousands of years.
When a large, mysterious outbreak occurs, Holden is recruited by his friends to help the colony.
As the film progresses, the story becomes more and more dark, as we see more of Holden’s past, and the ways in which the alien species are manipulating him.2.

As they continue to operate on the base, they discover that the facility is infected with an advanced virus that has taken over humans, and is slowly killing them.
