And finally, we have a movie that couldn't be more different from Ready Player One, an art-house sci-fi produced for less than $10 million directed by indie auteur Claire Denis (White Material) and starring the likes of Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth and...André Benjamin?

The low-budget sci-fi follows a group of criminals tricked into travelling towards a black hole in order to seek out an alternate energy source, all while being "sexually experimented on" by the scientists on-board.

It sound absolutely mental and weird and basically the furthest thing imaginable from The Last Jedi, but if you're feeling a little exhausted by all the recent big-budget tentpoles, this could be just the refreshing tonic: a movie where R-Patz gets molested by space-creeps. Charming.

Which upcoming movies could beat Star Wars: The Last Jedi at its own game? Shout out your predictions in the comments below!
