The cinema has given us great films of alien invasions and now we compile the ones that Artificial Intelligence believes could occur.
Alien invasion movies have been a recurring theme in cinema over the years, but not all depictions are equally realistic. But what is clear is that some manage to convincingly capture what an encounter with beings from another planet might be like. So, the best thing is to ask Artificial Intelligence which one it thinks is the most accurate.
Here are five alien invasion movies that stand out for their realistic approach.
The War of the Worlds (2005).
Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Cruise, this film is based on the homonymous novel by H.G. Wells. It features a full-scale alien invasion and shockingly shows the chaos and destruction this could cause. The film focuses on the perspective of a family as they struggle to survive in the midst of the invasion.
District 9 (2009).
Directed by Neill Blomkamp, this South African film tackles the subject of the alien invasion from a unique perspective. Set in Johannesburg, the plot centers on a group of refugee aliens who are relegated to live in a ghetto known as District 9.
