This Friday, October 6, the premiere in our country of Blade Runner 2049 will take place, a sequel to one of the most important science fiction films in the history of cinema, directed in 1982 by Ridley Scott. 35 years later and from the hand of the Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve we will know the fate of Rick Deckard, played by Harrison Ford. Until Friday, all of us who religiously pay Netflix's monthly payment can quench our thirst for science fiction with a good selection of films from the genre.
A way to liven up the wait until next October 6 we can all enjoy the most anticipated premiere of 2017: watch these 10 science fiction movies that we can see, from today, on the streaming content platform Netflix. Tapes for all tastes with a common denominator: having science fiction as the backbone of the stories it tells us. We begin.
A film especially dedicated to lovers of time travel . And with an argument of those that seems impossible to bring them to the screen. In 2072, time travel is something common in our society. And the murders, too. Now, when you want to eliminate someone, you are sent to the past and, there, a 'Looper' ends his life. What if one of these 'Loopers' must end the life ... of himself, in the past? Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in a critically acclaimed sci-fi film that has become a cult work.

David Bowie had a son whom he named Duncan. Over time, Duncan Jones turned out to be unfit for music, but he was quite skilled behind the scenes. He debuted with a jaw-dropping sci-fi movie, Moon. And then, he continued within the paths of science fiction, opting for a more commercial project with much less pretensions, but just as enjoyable. Source code is like Groundhog Day inside a train . Jake Gyllenhall plays Captain Colter Stevens, who one day wakes up in the shoes of a train traveler who must defuse a bomb. Each time he explodes, his character returns to the starting square, having to try again. Perfect to spend an entertaining Sunday.

Guardians of the Galaxy
A film that understands the concept of 'Nostalgia' well and that adapts the comics of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' to the big screen. A group of raggedy men, including a very foul-mouthed raccoon and a talkative tree, must save the galaxy from the clutches of a fearsome villain named Ronan. A film that is a party of music and color, with a great soundtrack and loads of laughs guaranteed. To see with your little nephew and laugh more than him.
