Summary
  • Waterworld: In a future where Earth is covered with water, the human race struggles to survive on dilapidated boats and makeshift floating cities called atolls. When a mysterious drifter/adventurer known as the Mariner gets caught up in the struggle between the evil Deacon and a young girl and her adoptive mother, he finds himself catapulted into an explosive war of good vs. evil
  • Skyline: It was supposed to be a simple birthday weekend in Southern California. But when sunrise arrives two hours early in the form of a haunting light from an unknown source, a group of friends watches in terror as people across the city are drawn outside and swept into massive alien ships that have blotted out the L.A. skyline. From tankers to drones and hydra-like extraterrestrials, the aliens are inescapable and seemingly indestructible
  • Children of men: London, 2027. Humanity has become infertile and no child has been born for 18 years. Science is at loss to explain the reason. Immigration is a crime and regugees are caged like animals. African and East European societies have collapsed and their dwindling populations are migrating toward England and other wealthy nations. Torn apart by nuclear fallout, rampant terrorism and political rebellion. In this climate of nationalistic violence, a London peace activist turned bureaucrat Theo Faron, joins forces with Julian, his revolutionary ex-wife, in order to save mankind by protecting a woman who has mysteriously became pregnant. These three set out on a desperate struggle to deliver the world's only pregnant woman to the Human Project with hope that they can discover the cure for global infertility. As they carefully navigate between the battling forces of military police and a pro-immigration insurgency this small group must endure a death-defying ordeal of urban warfare
  • Doomsday: A lethal virus spreads throughout Great Britain, infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands. To contain the threat the government evacuates as many survivors as it can out of the infected area and the rest of the country succumbs to fear and chaos. The quarantine is successful. Three decades later, the Reaper Virus violently resurfaces. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair, is urgently dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare
