Considering Gravity has broken some box office records, we may be treated to more hard sci-fi in theaters soon. But what if we want some really hard sci-fi? So hard it’s truly realistic? What if we want something a little more subdued, like the mundane kind of gravity evidenced in the picture above? Hard Sci-Fi Movies has us covered.
This dedicated Twitter account takes sci-fi tropes, subgenres, and popular films and pitches a fully realistic version of these stories. These versions of Iron Man, The Hulk, Spider-Man, Pacific Rim, Star Wars, etc. may not be pulse-pounding, but hey, at least somebody got tenure.
[This is not a spoiler. This is a joke based on the general premise.]
Frankenstein (sort of)
Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
2001: A Space Odyssey
Futurama (sort of)
Timecop (sort of)
SH-T JUST GOT REAL.
