4. Blade Runner 2049

But Denis Villeneuve’s sharp direction, Hans Zimmer’s thrilling background score and flawless visual effects made this neo-noir science fiction, a classic. Ryan Gosling plays the Blade Runner along with stellar performances from Harrison Ford, Jared Leto and Robin Wright. The film also won the Academy Award for best visual effects. You can’t afford to miss this one.

6. The Emoji Movie
Why watch it: This one is for all the animation lovers out there. The concept of emojis having their own city Textopolis followed by the story of an emoji named Gene, who has multiple expressions is enough to pique my interest. I mean, the execution is even better. But don’t just take my word for it, watch the premiere.
7. The Dark Tower
Why watch it: If you can’t get enough of science fictions and fantasy films, then here’s a perfect mix of both based on Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. I don’t think you need any other reason to watch this. And if you do, it also packs powerful performances from Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey.
