There are two completely different kind of sci-fi movies coming out this summer. One is less of science fiction and more of weird fiction, but alas very interesting. The other is a remake of a 90s movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger, that is a pure sci-fi flick with too much action, but again, despite the action form, very interesting and definitely worth seeing.
