12 Upcoming Sci-Fi Movies That WILL Be Better Than Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker
You knew we had to stick this one on the list, even if
this year’s Dune isn’t the hyper expensive ambitious fever dream which El Topo director
Alejandro Jodorowsky would have helmed in a more just world.
Starring indie heartthrob/ unspellable name Timothee
Chalamet of Call Me By Your Name and Little Women fame, this belated adaptation
of Frank Herbert’s iconic sci-fi epic shouldn’t have trouble improving upon
Twin Peaks creator David Lynch’s impenetrable 1984 attempt. Where the eighties
version hired a director known for his demented tangents and mad flourishes, this
action epic wisely opted to hire helmer Denis Villeneuve of Blade Runner 2049
and Arrival fame.
This canny decision means that, regardless of the flick’s
massive scope, Villeneuve’s reliably crisp, clinical sci-fi style will be a
perfect match for such a complex and layered project.
