After 'Blade Runnner 2049', Canadian star filmmaker Denis Villeneuve's 'Dune' is easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year. David Lynch made a poorly received adaptation of Frank Herberts sci fi epic novel in 1984. This one is bound to become an instant classic. Read more Watch the trailer of Dune

The saga continues with this third installment in the highly successful Star Trek series. Not as good as the previous chapter, which has mainly to do with the absence of a great villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch, but nonetheless another solid movie which proves this reboot's raison d'être.

The universe, in all its vastness and mysteriousness, intrigues filmmakers and audiences endlessly. There are an awful lot of terrible, low-budget space movies out there though, but these are all pretty great. The movies about Aliens listed here tell us just as much about what it means to a human being on planet earth, as that they are about Aliens and outer space.
Making space films, or science fiction films set in space, is by no means an easy task. Sometimes it can be done with smaller budgets, and by focusing on the human aspects of things, like in Moon, but usually they are gigantic projects. In 2014 Nolan’s Interstellar was such a project, and although critics were divided, it sure was a great space film that belongs among the ranks of the greatest ever made. Like all films in this niche genre, it was highly indebted to the mother of sci-fi space films, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Let’s see if we can expect yet another great space travel film in 2015. We usually stays within the indie film field, but we have caved in to include some bigger titles as well.
