Speaking of Oblivion, it seems like this year will be a banner year like no other as far as science fiction (and/or science fantasy) films go. I can’t remember any year in recent memory with so many of them coming out. Aside from Oblivion there’s Elysium (Neill Blomkamp’s first film since District 9, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster in her last role ever?), Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, After Earth (with Will Smith and directed but thankfully not written by M. Night Shyamalan), Ender’s Game and of course Star Trek Into Darkness. Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color is supposed to have sci-fi elements to it as well, and they also made a new Riddick film, apparently.
With so many due out this year, a few of them has to be good, right? My money’s on Pacific Rim and Elysium to deliver the goods.
