J UNG_E , a surprising sci-fi movie, is making waves on Netflix! Produced in South Korea, the feature debuted in early 2023 on the platform, not even taking 24 hours to appear in the Top 10 of streaming.
We’ve listed below 7 futuristic, surprising and twist-filled movies that have everything to please JUNG_E fans on Netflix; check out!
Elysium is set in a futuristic dystopia in which the rich live in tranquility and the poor are left with the leftovers – which is not very different from the current scenario. The film’s cast includes Jodie Foster (The Silence of the Lambs), Matt Damon (The Martian) and Wagner Moura (Narcos).
The plot of Elysium takes place in the year 2154, when the richest humans live on a luxurious space station, while the poor suffer on a completely devastated Earth. In this complex scenario, a man fights to save himself and reverse this situation.
Blade Runner 2049
Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to Blade Runner: The Android Hunter, considered one of the most influential science fiction films of all time. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Dune), the feature features Ryan Gosling (Occult Agent), Ana de Armas (Blonde) and Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) in the cast.
The film, which as its name implies, is set in 2049 (30 years after the events of Blade Runner), begins when the contents of a secret tomb catch the attention of a powerful businessman – who decides to send the replicant hunter K in a quest to find a lost legend.
I Am Mother
Just like JUNG_E, I Am Mother adopts the concept of “motherhood” as one of its main themes. The film premiered on Netflix in 2019, with Rose Byrne (X-Men: Apocalypse), Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby) and Clara Rugaard (Moana) in the main cast.
The story of I Am Mother takes place after the extinction of humanity, when a teenager raised by a robot meets another human and begins to question everything she has learned about the world. Prepare the tissue, because I Am Mother is an extremely touching film.
Just like JUNG_E, the science fiction film Extinction follows the struggle of a chosen one (or chosen one, in the case of the South Korean film) who becomes the only hope for the salvation of humanity. Michael Pena (Ant-Man) and Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls) lead the cast.
Mixing suspense, drama and science fiction, Oxygen became a huge Netflix hit in 2021, appearing for several weeks in the platform’s Top 10. The film is anchored by a powerful performance by French actress Mélanie Laurent, from Inglourious Basterds.
Oxygen tells the story of Liz, a woman who, after waking up trapped in a cryogenic chamber, needs to recover her memories before the oxygen runs out. Claustrophobic, agonizing and with a breathtaking ending, the feature is highly praised by the public and specialized critics.
