The best sci-fi movies on Netflix right now

Technology that feels like science-fiction is a part of our everyday lives these days. Self-driving cars, helpful robots, AI chatbots, and more make it feel like the future is already here. That consumer tech also makes sci-fi movies hit even closer to home.

Once a refuge for camp and substance-less special effects, the sci-fi genre has seen a renaissance in the 21st century. Whether you’re in the mood for something more provocative and hardcore or you just want an expensive invasion blockbuster, Netflix’s sci-fi library has something for you. With new movies coming to Netflix all the time, however, it can be difficult to trust the algorithm to serve up the best options. We are the human element. These are the best sci-fi movies on Netflix right now.

In need of a few more suggestions? We’ve curated a guide to the best sci-fi movies on Amazon Prime Video and the best sci-fi movies on Hulu, too.

The first film in the surprisingly extensive franchise introduces us to Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a vampire Death Dealer who is highly trained to eliminate werewolves known as Lycans. She’s just one soldier in a centuries-long underground war between vampires and Lycans. But when Lycans become interested in human Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), Selene is given the assignment to eliminate Michael.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski
Spiderhead is a state-of-the-art penitentiary where inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. It doesn’t look like a prison — there are no bars, cells, or uniforms. There are just drugs, administered at the beck and call of visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), who presents himself as a humane reformer of the criminal justice system. When two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), begin to form a connection, however, Abnesti takes special interest in them as his experiments begin to test the limits of free will itself.

Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last drone repairmen stationed on Earth, and his mission is nearly done.

Morbius (2022)
35 %
pg-13 105m
Genre Action, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Stars Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona
Directed by Daniel Espinosa
Let’s be clear, Morbius is not very good, but it was a blockbuster movie with implications for Sony and Marvel’s shared Spider-Man universe. So, it makes the list. Jared Leto plays Dr. Michael Morbius, a brilliant biochemist and hematologist who is ironically being killed by a blood disorder that he just can’t crack. Desperate to find a cure so that others may avoid the same fate, Morbius tests an illegal, dangerous serum on himself. While the cure works, it comes at the cost of unleashing a darkness within him that slowly turns him into a vampire. As Morbius tries to manage his increasingly violent urges, his best friend and benefactor, Milo (Matt Smith), suffers from the same disorder. That’s why Milo plots to wrest the cure from Morbius, whom he believes is selfishly keeping it for himself.
Resident Evil (2002)
Resident Evil
33 %
r 100m
Genre Horror, Action, Science Fiction
Stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius
Directed by Paul W. S. Anderson
Based on the extremely successful horror video game franchise, the original Resident Evil was more of a hit with fans than critics. And what a hit it was, because 20 years later, they’re still making movies and even a Netflix original series based on the franchise. The story begins in a top-secret government research facility, where a virus breaks out, turning all of the resident researchers into zombies and the lab animals into mutated hellhounds. To contain the outbreak, the government sends in an elite task force led by Rain (Michelle Rodriguez), who soon discovers Alice (Milla Jovovich) suffering from a form of amnesia. But before Alice can determine who she was before the incident, she learns that the pathogen will become airborne and infect the world in three hours unless she manages to stop it.
The Adam Project (2022)
The Adam Project
55 %
pg-13 106m
Genre Action, Adventure, Comedy, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Stars Ryan Reynolds, Walker Scobell, Mark Ruffalo
Directed by Shawn Levy
After a decade in development hell, with Tom Cruise attached to star at one point, Netflix finally saved the day and brought The Adam Project to life. Our story follows Adam Reed (Ryan Reynolds), a fighter pilot living in a dystopian 2050. While manning a time jet to rescue his wife, Adam’s craft plummets into 2022, where the adult Adam is forced to take up arms with his younger self (Walker Scobell) in order to save the world from the tyrannic clutches of Maya Sorian (Catherine Keener), the wretched ruler of the future. At this point, we’ve seen Ryan Reynolds do it all, especially when it comes to action. While there’s plenty of the actor’s familiar chops on display, the sci-fi backbone of The Adam Project gives Reynolds a fun sandbox to show off in. And he delivers a performance that is a few notches above what we’d normally expect to see.
Stowaway (2021)
63 %
pg-13 117m
Genre Science Fiction, Drama, Thriller, Adventure
Stars Anna Kendrick, Toni Collette, Daniel Dae Kim
Directed by Joe Penna
Stowaway is a sci-fi film that explores just how far human beings are willing to go to protect one another, breathing new meaning into words like “sacrifice” and “preservation.” Following the crew (played by Anna Kendrick, Toni Collette, and Daniel Dae Kim) of a Mars-bound spacecraft, the trio of planetary researchers discovers an accidental fourth passenger named Michael (Shamier Anderson) trapped aboard the vessel. Literally entangled in a carbon dioxide purifier, the dislocated launch engineer inadvertently destroys the device, robbing everyone aboard of precious oxygen. As the clock starts ticking on how much air is left to breathe, the crew is forced to consider some perilous and tragic choices in order to arrive on Mars safely. There’s nothing like the absence of familiar Earth to raise the stakes in any live-or-die situation, and Stowaway handles this familiar sci-fi formula with an impactful narrative.
Synchronic (2020)
64 %
r 101m
Genre Science Fiction, Drama, Thriller, Horror
Stars Anthony Mackie, Jamie Dornan, Katie Aselton
Directed by Aaron Moorhead, Justin Benson
Synchronic stars Anthony Mackie and Steve Dornan as New Orleans paramedics Steve and Dennis. When a series of deaths are linked to an experimental new drug called Synchronic, the emergency responders are forced to follow the trail of the elusive chemical when Dennis’ daughter vanishes. Her disappearance may have more to do with the mind-altering substance and inter-dimensional time travel than either medical technician could ever expect. With the look and feel of a raw ’70s film, Synchronic successfully balances its sci-fi horror leanings, delivering thrill after thrill as the plot compounds and time begins to fold.

Stars Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph
Directed by Michael Rianda
Want to get the kids into sci-fi? This techpocalyptic animated thrill ride from Lord/Miller (The Lego MovieSolo: A Star Wars Story) ought to do the trick. Teenager Katie Mitchell has trouble connecting with her oddball family, especially when it comes to her father, who just could not be more different than Katie. But when he fears he might lose her forever when she leaves for film school, Katie’s father cancels her plane ticket to LA and takes the family on a road trip instead. Unfortunately, mid-trip, a scorned artificial intelligence (A.I.) called Pal incites a robotic rebellion, rounding up all the people of the Earth to send them out to space. Narrowly escaping capture, the Mitchells are now the last free humans on Earth, and with the help of a couple of damaged robots, they must find a way to save humanity — and their family.

Directed by Peter Thorwarth
What’s the last kind of plane you want to hijack? Well, relatively high on the list is a plane on which a vampire is a passenger. Yet that’s exactly what happens in Blood Red Sky, which Deadline reports is on track to becoming the most successful German-made Netflix film ever, with over 50 million views globally. In this fast-paced fusion of horror, sci-fi, and action, Peri Baumeister plays Nadja, a newly transformed vampire traveling incognito. Once the hijackers shoot her and leave her for dead, we learn exactly what she is, and soon, the villains wish they hijacked a plane with Wesley Snipes as a passenger instead.

The Swarm (2020)
The Swarm
pg-13 101m
Genre Horror, Drama, Fantasy
Stars Suliane Brahim, Sofian Khammes, Marie Narbonne
Directed by Just Philippot
Bugs. They’re smaller than us, but few things freak us out more. Director Just Philippot capitalizes on our innate fear of things that crawl and hop in his 2020 horror film The Swarm. Suliane Brahim stars as the widow Virginie, who’s trying and failing to keep her family afloat by raising locusts. When she learns the insects have developed a taste for human blood, it opens the door for her to finally make money off the things while at the same time making them more dangerous. When the inevitable comes, as Richard Brody writes for The New Yorker, the film does for grasshoppers “what Alfred Hitchcock did for birds.”

Stars Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick
Directed by Zack Snyder
What do you do when there’s a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas? Well, obviously, you take advantage of the situation and rob one of the city’s most successful casinos. At least that’s what Dave Bautista’s Scott Ward and his squad of mercenaries do in the zombie heist flick Army of the Dead. Judging by the previews for the film, Ward and his squad of mercs will need all the firepower they have and more. Unlike the shambling horrors populating your average zombie story, the undead of Vegas (sounds like a band name) not only count Elvis Presley impersonators, Vegas showgirls, and Bengal tigers among their ranks, but they’re fast, smart, and a lot more organized.

Stars Mélanie Laurent, Mathieu Amalric, Malik Zidi
Directed by Alexandre Aja
Waking up with no memory of your identity would be pretty bad, right? Imagine that, on top of amnesia, you’re also inexplicably trapped in a cryogenic pod that’s slowly running out of air. That’s the premise for the French language sci-fi drama Oxygen. Mélanie Laurent plays the imprisoned protagonist who has nothing but her buried memories and the pod’s uncooperative computers to piece together who she is and how to survive. Oxygen looks to be a claustrophobic and gripping thriller, and it will be available for streaming beginning Wednesday, May 12.

Spectral (2016)
pg-13 109m
Genre Science Fiction, Thriller, Action
Stars James Badge Dale, Emily Mortimer, Gonzalo Menendez
Directed by Nic Mathieu
If you’re in the mood for good ol’ fashioned alien warfare, you’ll love Spectral. This early Netflix original shows just how creative the studio could get with a slim budget despite significant action demands. An extraterrestrial force begins to wreak havoc on a war-torn European city, forcing local engineers to team up with American Special Ops to stop the invasion.

The Midnight Sky (2020)
The Midnight Sky

Stars George Clooney, Felicity Jones, David Oyelowo
Directed by George Clooney
George Clooney directs and stars in The Midnight Sky. With humanity on the brink of extinction, scientist Augustine Lofthouse (George Clooney) refuses to vacate his Arctic laboratory when radiation levels on Earth grow to dangerous levels. Instead, he chooses to use his lab’s computer system to search for orbiting ships deployed on missions. Intending to warn the distant crew of Aether of Earth’s impending doom, Lofthouse discovers a young girl in the lab. The two band together to brave the Arctic elements on a journey to a north-bound radio tower that will be powerful enough to send a warning signal to Aether. An effects-laced sci-fi thriller, The Midnight Sky looks and feels like similar brink-of-the-apocalypse films but with extra weight placed on the performances — notably, Clooney. It’s not a perfect film, but it more than does its job.

In a reimagined modern era, proof of the afterlife is amongst us, thanks to the research of scientist Thomas Harbor (Robert Redford). With the news hitting the world by storm, suicide rates climb exponentially as people opt to begin life anew as opposed to remaining in troubling situations. Harbor’s son, Will (Jason Segel), questions his father’s studies. Meeting Isla (Rooney Mara) on a ferry, the two discuss mortality and eventually begin a relationship. When Will takes Isla to his father’s hidden compound, the nature of his father’s work comes to light in ways neither father, son, or Isla could ever expect. A wonder-filled, philosophical film, The Discovery features an intriguing story and stellar performances, especially from Segel and Redford.

Genre Science Fiction, Action, Drama
Cast Qu Chuxiao, Li Guangjie, Zhao Jinmai
The Wandering Earth may be the biggest film that you’ve never heard of, but it was a huge blockbuster in China. The movie takes place in the future, as the expanding sun forces humanity to literally move the Earth to another solar system. This requires Captain Wang Lei (Li Guangjie) to leave behind his son, Liu Qi (Qu Chuxiao), as his mission in space keeps him away for several years. However, both father and son will have major roles to play in order to ensure that the Earth survives its perilous journey.

Mirage (2018)
Genre Science Fiction, Thriller, Drama, Romance, Mystery
Cast Adriana Ugarte, Chino Darín, Javier Gutiérrez
Don’t be afraid to read subtitles when watching Mirage. This Spanish sci-fi film has a story that is universal no matter which language is used. Adriana Ugarte stars as Vera Roy, a woman who inadvertently discovers a way to communicate with a teenager named Nico Lasarte (Joel Illescas) 25 years in the past. After helping Nico prevent his own accidental death, Vera discovers that her own world and timeline have greatly changed. Vera’s daughter no longer exists, and her husband, David (Álvaro Morte), is married to someone else. Subsequently, Vera desperately searches for a way to regain what she lost.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
61 %
Genre Science Fiction, Mystery, Drama, Thriller, TV Movie
Cast Fionn Whitehead, Will Poulter, Craig Parkinson, Alice Lowe, Asim Chaudhry
There’s nothing else on Netflix exactly like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. This spinoff from the British sci-fi anthology series is an interactive movie that allows players/viewers to control the fate of Stefan Butler (Fionn Whitehead). In 1984, Stefan is a young programmer who gets the chance to adapt a “choose your own adventure” book into a video game. However, art imitates life, and Stefan is soon faced with questions about his own free will. It’s not possible to see every bit of footage from Bandersnatch in one continuous viewing. That’s why it invites repeat viewings by letting alternate choices unlock new story paths. This may not be the future of all movies, but it is a subgenre worth exploring.

Advantageous (2015)
59 %
Genre Science Fiction, Drama
Cast Jacqueline Kim, James Urbaniak, Freya Adams
Advantageous is not a flashy sci-fi movie, but it is thought-provoking. In the near future, a single mother named Gwen Koh (Jacqueline Kim) loses her job and her financial security. Desperate to provide for her daughter, Jules (Samantha Kim), Gwen volunteers for a radical experiment to transfer her mind to a younger body. However, Gwen 2.0 (Freya Adams) is a very different woman from the original model, much to the horror of Jules and even Gwen herself.

Project Power (2020)
Project Power
51 %
r 113m
Genre Action, Crime, Science Fiction
Stars Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dominique Fishback
Directed by Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman
Superheroes aren’t real, but their powers are. That’s the premise behind Project Power, a film that presents a near-future world in which superhuman powers can be granted to almost anyone via a special pill called Power. For five minutes, users of Power have abilities uniquely tied to them. New Orleans police detective Frank Shaver (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) openly uses Power, even against regulations. In his search for the source of Power, Frank comes across Art (Jamie Foxx), a man who may have unexpected connections to the development of the drug. This is a cautionary tale, and a fresh take on a very familiar genre.

Bird Box (2018)
Bird Box
51 %
r 124m
Genre Thriller, Drama, Science Fiction
Stars Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver
Directed by Susanne Bier
It’s understandable if you get some Quiet Place vibes from Bird Box. Both are sci-fi horror movies that deal with monsters that directly connect with human senses. In this flick, the creatures can make anyone who sees them become insane with suicidal urges. Hence the constant blindfolds to keep the entities out. Sandra Bullock plays Malorie Hayes, a woman struggling to survive in this horrific new world, while flashbacks explore how she dealt with the end of life as she knew it. Not all of the moments land, but Bird Box has its share of real scares.

See You Yesterday (2019)
See You Yesterday
74 %
Genre Science Fiction, Drama, Adventure, Crime, Action
Cast Eden Duncan-Smith, Dante Crichlow, Astro
Many sci-fi films have something important to say about the present, and See You Yesterday has a premise that seems all too timely. The story follows C.J. Walker (Eden Duncan-Smith), a revolutionary genius even as a teenager. C.J. has come up with actual working time machines, and she has a very personal reason to use them. Her brother, Calvin Walker (Brian “Stro” Bradley), has been killed during an encounter with the police. To save Calvin, C.J. and her friend Sebastian (Danté Crichlow) try to change the past. Needless to say, complications ensue.

Beyond Skyline (2017)
Beyond Skyline
46 %
r 105m
Genre Action, Science Fiction, Adventure, Horror
Stars Frank Grillo, Bojana Novaković, Iko Uwais
Directed by Liam O'Donnell
The long-delayed follow-up to 2010’s Skyline is one of the rare instances where the sequel is vastly superior to the original. This unapologetically pulpy, alien invasion B-movie shows what happens when civilians are left to defend themselves against a superior species of aliens. Frank Grillo stars as a cop at odds with his son when the aliens strike. Suddenly sent running for their lives, the father-son duo move at a breakneck pace, traversing through subterranean tunnels to the nuclear wasteland of Los Angeles to an alien ship to a rebel human base in Laos to mount a final defense. Beyond Skyline is absolutely nutty, but if you like big action, ludicrous sci-fi tropes, and good ol’ fashioned human versus alien violence, this one’s for you.

Okja (2017)
75 %
Genre Adventure, Drama, Science Fiction, Action
Cast Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Seo-hyun Ahn, Jake Gyllenhaal, Devon Bostick, Lily Collins, Steven Yuen
Bong Joon-ho earned Best Director and Best Picture Oscars for Parasite, but he was making remarkable movies well before that recognition (Okja isn’t his only entry on this list). Okja is one of his most polemical films, taking on the meat industry and capitalism at large in this touching sci-fi drama for Netflix. The story follows Mija, a young girl who has grown up in the mountains of South Korea with a fictional super-pig best friend named Okja. But when the multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation kidnaps Okja and transports her to New York to launch an entirely new meat industry, it’s up to Mija to save her best friend. A caustic satire of the greed and grotesqueness of American food processing, Okja pokes fun at everyone from self-obsessed CEOs to bumbling, naive activists in a sci-fi romp that hits close to home.

Director Grant Sputore turned a lot of heads with I Am Mother, a superbly made and terrifically acted sci-fi thriller. In the far future, humanity is seemingly extinct. An android called Mother (voiced by Rose Byrne) fulfills its primary function by attempting to revive humanity. But first, Mother raises Daughter (Clara Rugaard) for practice and teaches her how to survive in this inhospitable world. However, Daughter’s reality is shattered when she encounters a woman (Hilary Swank) from the outside, who happens to be the first human that Daughter has ever met. And once the newcomer is inside of the bunker, I Am Mother takes a decidedly sinister turn. The truth will come out, but will anyone survive to see it?

Love is funny. Or, at least, you hope it is. That's preferable to many of the other adjectives associated with love, from sad to rage-inducing. As such, it's no surprise that a humorous outlook on a universal emotion would make such a popular film genre. It's also no surprise that there would be so many bad entries to that film genre.

Netflix has a pretty ample supply of both good and bad romantic comedies, so it can take some time to find a rom-com worth a watch. But don't worry, we've already gone through the library to filter out the time-wasters. These are the best romantic comedies on Netflix right now.
