Neo es un pirata informático que descubre una terrible verdad: el mundo que nos rodea es una ilusión digital y los humanos viven en realidad en granjas de larvas. Este es uno de los films que más ha influido en el cine sci-fi, con efectos especiales desconocidos hasta el momento. Una trilogía que marcó un antes y un después en la era digital.

Donnie Darko (2001)

Donnie es un joven altamente inteligente que sobrevive a una experiencia muy cercana a la muerte. Desde ese momento comienza a sufrir alucinaciones que le llevan al extremo de su comportamiento y a descubrir un submundo repleto de secretos bajo su barrio de clase media.

Avatar (2009)

En el año 2154, un ex marine minusválido viaja a Pandora, un planeta que contiene un mineral para resolver la crisis energética de la Tierra. Allí se infiltra entre los Na'vi, los nativos del planeta, usando el cuerpo que le proporciona la tecnología del programa científico Avatar.

Origen (2010)

Dom y su equipo trabajan como espías, apropiándose de secretos durante el sueño ajeno. Roban ideas, pensamientos y claves de seguridad, pero su último trabajo no será tan sencillo. Deberán implantar una idea en un subconsciente. Una película confusa, brillante y visualmente espectacular que dejará noqueado a más de uno.

Interstellar (2014)

En un futuro incierto la vida en la Tierra se ha hecho imposible. Es necesario buscar alternativas, lo que lleva a un grupo de tres astronautas a un viaje espacial a través de un agujero negro, donde el tiempo y el espacio no son lo que parecen. Todo ello salpicado de diferentes líneas temporales que pondrán en tensión al espectador.
