Watch ‘Annihilation’ and ‘Mute,’ Then Watch These Movies

We recommend 12 movies to check out after you watch the new sci-fi films by Alex Garland and Duncan Jones.

This week, I’ve got a two-for-one deal on movie recommendations. Both Alex Garland and Duncan Jones have new original sci-fi films (Garland’s is adapted from a novel but is changed enough to be more his own work), both of which went direct-to-Netflix in most parts of the world (Garland’s is playing in theaters in North America only). There aren’t a lot of similarities between Annihilation and Mute, so the picks they’ve inspired are separated into two lists below, which is hopefully helpful if you only see one or the other, at least for now.

I’ve also got some honorable mentions for each, but for Mute I should also note one movie that should have been recommend beforehand as homework: Moon. Jones’s debut should have been on my list of movies to watch before you go to the movies in 2018, because Mute isn’t a sequel but does take place in the same world as Moon and features some scenes directly involving its plot. So, if you haven’t yet watched Mute, see Moon first, and if you saw Mute without having seen Moon, check out the latter now.

Movies to Watch After You See Annihilation:

Stalker (1979)

Stalker C Hdmaster Still Tif

I try not to repeat movies on these lists, but even though it’s been less than a year since I included Stalker as a film to watch after Atomic Blonde, I can’t not recommend it again now. Annihilation bears an obvious likeness to Andrei  Tarkovsky’s sci-fi drama, a connection that’s very different from the one I highlighted last summer. Not only are Stalker and Annihilation both very loosely based on books but both are about a group of characters who enter a cordoned-off area where strange things are happening.

Stalker may not have been the only movie
