This series of slides takes a look at how well Hollywood has depicted space over the past decade. We’ve included a wide range of films, since Hollywood has taken a broad view of space in recent years. Some of the films such as First Man and Hidden Figures are based on history, while others such as the two recent Star Wars movies follow the familiar lines of space fantasy.A number of the films such as Arrival, Annulation, District 9, and Life take a look at alien species that come from space, while others such as Gravity, Moon, and The Martian take a space-based look at a near future. Altogether, it’s been a healthy and creative decade for space in film.
