“By Grabthar's hammer, what a savings!”

Originally Published: 

Paramount Plus is making a case as a must-have streaming service. With 1,000 movies added this month, a 30-day free trial, and a new budget subscription option, it’s already grown a lot in the short time since its launch. With that in mind, here are...

6 great sci-fi movies you can watch now on Paramount Plus.

6. Gemini Man (2019)

Killer special effects and great lead performances by Will Smith and Will Smith as a pair of dueling clones make up for Gemini Man’s subpar story. (Sorry, Ang Lee!)

5. Galaxy Quest (1999)

Good sci-fi comedies are few and far between. Galaxy Quest manages to be a funny but loving parody of Star Trek and a fun sci-fi adventure in its own right.

4. Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)

Sonic the Hedgehog was one of the most successful movies of 2020 and one of the best video game movies ever. Even if those are somewhat dubious honors, it’s still worth checking out this blend of animated action and comedy.

3. The Avengers (2012)

You’ll have to head to Disney Plus for the full MCU lineup, but you can check out the first Avengers movie that set the series in motion on Paramount Plus.

2. Star Trek Beyond (2016)

Star Trek Beyond joins the already impressive Star Trek collection on Paramount Plus, which includes classic films and new TV series.

1. Arrival (2016)

If you like your sci-fi slow-paced and cerebral — well, you’ve probably already seen Arrival. If you haven’t, make some time to see it before director Denis Villeneuve’s Dune comes out in October.
