Sci-fi films draw in viewers of all ages and tastes with their stories of robots, aliens, outer space, and parallel universes. Science fiction continues to be a global phenomenon, with Everything, Everywhere, All at Once sweeping the Academy Awards and Avatar (the highest-grossing picture of all time) showing no signs of slowing in its appeal. On Friday, June 9, 2023, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts released in theatres for thrill-seekers everywhere.

In the next instalment of the massively successful Transformers saga, titled Rise of the Beasts, Optimus Prime and the Autobots face their greatest threat to date. They must join forces with the Maximals, a formidable group of Transformers, as a new threat appears with the potential to destroy the entire world.

Here are the top five science fiction films that Indian audiences enjoyed before the return of Optimus Prime and the Autobots:

In Avatar, we follow Jake Sully and Neytiri as they start a family and do all it takes to keep them together. They had to go out and see what the rest of Pandora had to offer. Jake is embroiled in a convoluted conflict against humanity. James Cameron helms the blockbuster film Avatar.

Interstellar - Netflix

Interstellar is about a group of astronauts that go through a wormhole near Saturn in quest of a new home for humanity, set in a dystopian future where humanity is mired in horrific blight and famine. Matthew McConaughey stars in one of Christopher Nolan's finest films.

Mark Watney's experience is told in The Martian. His crew abandons him on Mars after a storm, assuming he is dead. Mark is barely able to keep himself alive due to a lack of resources. Ridley Scott helms The Martian, which has an A-list ensemble including Matt Damon and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Everything Everywhere All At Once - SonyLIV
