3 sci-fi movies on Hulu you need to watch in November

The last month on Hulu has been full of horror. But in November, new titles on Hulu include three of the best sci-fi films of the past decade. For fans of the genre, this is a special treat not to be missed.

This month, our picks include Tom Cruise in a film unlike any previous blockbuster, as well as a robots-versus-aliens cult classic, and the final installment of a cult classic film trilogy. Here are three sci-fi movies on Hulu that you should watch in November.

Edge of the Future (2014)

There’s a simple reason why The end of tomorrow works very well. That’s because Tom Cruise’s character, Major William Cage, doesn’t start the film as a particularly powerful and skilled warrior. By a stroke of luck, Cage encounters an alien in battle who accidentally gives him the power to relive the same day over and over again. Sergeant. Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) was the last person to experience this phenomenon, which is why she took over Cage.

Thanks to Rita’s training, Cage became a truly formidable fighter. But to his horror, it seemed like no action by Cage could change the outcome of the fight. He seemed unable to change his own fate.

Pacific Rim (2013)

Pacific Rim is a film that promises its audience lots of giant robots punching giant alien monsters. And it more than lives up to that promise, with director and co-writer Guillermo del Toro capturing the flavor of Japanese monster movies and anime. In the film, the future of humanity depends on the Jaegers (giant robots) and their ability to fight the Kaiju, alien monsters that arrived on Earth through an underwater portal 10 years earlier.

Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) was once one of the best Jaeger pilots, and that’s why Marshal Pentecost Stacker (Idris Elba) needs Raleigh back in the saddle for Earth’s final assault against the invaders. However, the Jaeger requires two pilots to fly, and the only suitable candidate for Raleigh’s next mate is Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), a woman whose trauma at the hands of the Kaiju comes back to haunt her at an inopportune moment.

Man in Black 3 changing dynamics MiB trilogy is also a farewell for Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. After a deadly alien named Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) changes the past and kills Agent K (Jones), Agent J follows him back to 1969. In this era, a much younger K (Josh Brolin) is still around, although he is initially skeptical to J’s claim that he is from the future.

Ultimately, J manages to convince K of who he is and what the stakes are as they work together to preserve history and prevent an alien threat from destroying K and planet Earth. J also learns a shocking secret from his past that changes his relationship with his partner.
