We hope that this scenario will never happen in real life.

Very often filmmakers present aliens as unfriendly, cruel and scary. We have selected the best movies that tell about the clash between humanity and alien invaders.

3. War of the Worlds

Directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg in 2005, this film is an adaptation of the classic novel by Herbert Wells.

The story is about an ordinary family man trying to protect his children and survive an alien invasion.

A distinctive feature of War of the Worlds is its depiction of the horror and chaos that results when humanity collides with an unstoppable extraterrestrial force.

The film skillfully blends stunning visual effects and thrilling action sequences to create an intense and immersive experience for the viewer.

Spielberg's masterful direction combined with Cruise's convincing performance make War of the Worlds a must-see for all fans of human-alien battles.

2. Edge of Tomorrow

The movie combines a classic space monster story with Groundhog Day.

In the not too distant future, a race of otherworldly creatures invades Earth. There is no army in the world that can stand up to them. Major William Cage dies fighting them, but the impossible happens and he gets stuck in a time loop.

He keeps fighting and dying in the same battle. And each repeated encounter brings him closer to figuring out how to defeat the enemy.

The sci-fi action movie not only features outstanding technical production values, but also touches on themes of redemption and personal growth.

1. District 9

Neill Blomkamp's film takes an entirely new approach to a favorite story of filmmakers.

Aliens have made first contact with Earth. Humans have been prepared for everything from a hostile invasion to an incredible technological breakthrough. Neither has happened. These aliens turn out to be refugees from their own planet, and while humanity decides what to do with them, a temporary camp has been set up for them in District 9, South Africa.

The movie does an excellent job of exploring themes of segregation, discrimination, and the consequences of humanity's treatment of aliens. Blomkamp's use of a mockumentary style of storytelling gives the film a realistic and gritty feel, making it a compelling social commentary on our society.
