The science fiction genre rarely disappoints. Depending on the emotion of the film sci-fi films can range from light-hearted and clever to full on scientific methods and new world creations. With all the technology available and developing it seems the next sci-fi movie is greater than the one before it. Although, 2016 has debuted some very highly anticipated sci-fi films including sequels and remakes there is still more from this genre to look forward too. I have combed the internet for upcoming sci-fi movies to look forward to. True sci-fi fans know the difference between a good action thriller and a real sci-fi film.
