    This decade has also given us Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian, Edge of Tomorrow (less successful, but still apparently getting a sequel), Passengers (also unsuccessful, but certainly high profile), Transcendence (ditto), two Neil Blomkamp films, two from Bong Joon-ho, three films written by Alex Garland (one of which is admittedly based on an old IP), a partial attempt to make a superhero film also a Cronenbergian scifi in Fantastic Four, and more. Not only is there a new Alien movie (which has been called more of a Hammer Horror mad scientist film than nostalgia-fest), both Life and Morgan probably wouldn’t exist if not for the success of the original. Moon just misses the cutoff and I suppose wasn’t high-profile enough to count (although people talk more about that now than Source Code).

    I’m now kicking myself for not including Tomorrowland among the unsuccessful high-profile films which helped to persuade Disney not to take such risks in the future, even coming from Brad Bird.
