2020 is the year when films like Pacific Rim Edge of Tomorrow and Terminator: Dark Fate could have predicted the end of all humanity. Of course, 2020 wasn't the most utopian year, but the earth is still there and science fiction is alive and well – and already better than last year's selection. Aside from a few indie gems (including See You Yesterday, High Life, and Starfish ), 2019 was a kind of science fiction disappointment for both old concepts (]. Men in black: International ) and new ( Alita: Battle Angel ).
But 2020 already looks like a hell of a year for the genre, including new films from directors like Christopher Nolan, Denis Villeneuve, and Edgar Wright. Here are the 2020 science fiction films, listed by release date, that we already love and that we're definitely looking out for. Welcome to the first year of the new decade – which I hope will not be our last.

The Invisible Man (February 28)
Jordan Peele caused a horror / sci-fi storm when he published Get Out. The story of a woman who was hunted (persecuted?) After the death of her husband makes this H.G. Wells adaptation of a similar type. Fun bonus? Thanks to the accelerated release dates due to the COVID 19 pandemic, you can stream this bad boy at home.
Bloodshot (March 13)
Vin Diesel plays a soldier who was killed and then somehow brought back with super powers. It was a directorial debut for Dave Wilson, and although reviews were more critical than praise, it's still a pretty entertaining watch. This is another that you can already watch from the comfort of your living room.
Wendy (April 17)
The line between science fiction and magical realism can be cloudy. Beasts of the Southern Wild director Benh Zeitlin takes us to a mysterious island where time has passed. It's a modern Peter Pan that may not have astonished critics but was still fun?
Artemis Fowl (June 12)
For the love of all childhood memories, don't screw this up, Disney. (Considering that the movie has been delayed countless times … they'll probably screw it up.) This movie hits Disney + exclusively on June 12th.
Tenet (July 17)
Christopher Nolan returns with another stunning summer blockbuster. Action unknown, but John David Washington ( Ballers, BlacKkKlansman) and Robert Pattinson (you know him) play the leading role. Devices: time travel, espionage, evolution. I can't wait to wait.
Sputnik (August 14)
A Russian science fiction film that is part Alien and part horror of the Cold War, Sputnik becomes us remembering this room safely is actually just a dark eerie place.
Bill & Ted face music (August 21)
Unless they are middle-aged fathers. The Keanu-ssance continues.
The New Mutants (Aug. 28)
Early trailers for this horror X-Men episode weren't particularly promising, and this film, which was announced in 2015 and mainly shot in 2017, has been delayed many times . But we welcome any attempt to shake up the bloated superhero genre (that is, if it ever actually comes out).
Last night in Soho (September 24)
Edgar Wright ( Hot Fuzz Baby Driver ) introduces us to 1960s London, where mysteriously introduces Fashion designer shows up. And probably unsuccessfully tries to jump a fence.
Connected (October 28)
From the authors of the cartoon series of successful children Gravity Falls and the studio behind it ] Spider-Man: In the Spider-Verse  Connected can only be great. Follow the Mitchells on a car ride to college forever.
Black Widow (November 6)
Natasha Romanoff is finally getting her own film. Just no story of origin. The film apparently takes place between the events of the Civil War and the Infinity War . Stranger Things Star David Harbor is one of the co-stars.
Soul (November 20)
The team behind I nside Out is back on yet another mind-body journey, this time with a musician outside of his Body was transported. Original music will be important here, and guess who makes it? Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, most recently composers for Watchmen. A strange choice, but one we're looking forward to.
Godzilla vs. Kong (November 20)
Free Guy (December 11)
A bank employee learns that he is actually an unplayable character in a giant video game. Because Ryan Reynolds apparently can only do dark meta-comedies.
Dune (December 18)
Frank Herbert's epic novel Dune is written by Denis Villeneuve ( Blade Runner 2049 Arrival ). We cannot imagine a better one. The cast includes (deep breath): Timothee Chalamet, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin, to name a few. We. Are. Ready.
