Five Space Films to Watch During Lockdown

Welcome to another selection of films to watch. This time we’re going out of this world!

Interstellar (2014)

A visually stunning and heartbreaking epic that sees Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway lead the search for a new habitable planet to accommodate Earth’s remaining population.

Matt Damon and Michael Caine co-star in this fantastic film that sees the crew (Cast!) go through a wormhole to identify which possible planet could be fit for purpose.

The film entwines impressive visuals and human emotion well. It’s a 169-minute outside the box film that has grossed in excess of $700 million! No, I can’t explain everything about it (Kind of like Donnie Darko!) but that doesn’t stop me enjoying it for what it is, an original and stunning film.

The Martian (2015)

Matt Damon couldn’t ‘t get enough of space so he went to Mars too!

I won’t lie, I kind of wish that I’d read the book of this film first. Damon is left for dead when a mission to Mars goes wrong… but he’s not dead… so needs to keep himself not being dead!

Will anybody rescue him?

Solaris (2002)

It’s a while since I watched this film and at the time, I wasn’t aware that it was a remake.

Psychologist George Clooney heads into space to investigate the goings on aboard a space station that is orbiting the planet Solaris. But he himself is not immune to the strange goings on in space!

Natasha McElhone co-stars in a film that sadly failed so sparkle at the box office.

The Red Planet (2000)

An out of this world cast including Val Kilmer, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tom Sizemore, Benjamin Bratt, Simon Baker and Terence Stamp star in this 2000 released 2050 set Mars based (Obviously!) film.

With Earth on its knees and Mars the only route out, the crew are sent to investigate what went wrong with a terraforming project. They get more than they bargained for!

Another Earth (2011)

William Mapother and Brit Marling are the faces at the front of this sensitive and unique film.

Their worlds collide at an intersection, creating tragedy but later a shot at redemption.

Like many space related films, this one might leave some questions unanswered (Or maybe it doesn’t and I’m really not very good at understanding films!).

So there you have it. Another selection of five films to tackle whilst stuck at home, though maybe you’re not but hopefully there’s still time in your life to sit back, relax and enjoy a good film!
