The science fiction genre is the closest thing to a rollercoaster the film industry has. With movies ranging from the spectacular to the ridiculous, the vast array of settings, stories and weird and wacky characters has made the genre a mainstay on the screens of film fanatics since the cult classics of the 20th century.
Whether in the mood for a remarkable watch like Avatar, or a concept so bizarre and random like Sharknado that it's almost enjoyable in spite of the over-exaggerated acting, the sci-fi genre really does cater for all tastes. Given some of the crazy storylines the world of wrestling has given us over the years, it seems only logical some of the industry's biggest names would grab the lead in numerous sci-fi releases.
If there's one thing professional wrestling is known for, it's consistently great acting right? Of course not! Which is why the success of sci-fi films with sports entertainment superstars at the helm is mixed. We've seen some classics courtesy of an 'Animal', a 'Rowdy' one and someone we're often told we can't see, alongside some shockers from an 'Immortal' one a 'Big Sexy' fella.
Hopefully, this article will help you add a few to your watchlist and most likely a couple on to your 'never touching, get away from my screen' list...
