Sci-Fi: A high school science teacher and other civilians are sent into the future to battle monsters that are close to wiping out all humans.

Dan Forester (CHRIS PRATT) is a military vet and current high school science teacher who's married to Emmy (BETTY GILPIN) with whom he has a nine-year-old daughter, Muri (RYAN KIERA ARMSTRONG). When he's passed over for a job he wanted, he thinks he must be meant for greater things but can't turn to his dad, James (J.K. SIMMONS), for advice, what with them being long estranged.

He gets the chance to step up when he, along with the rest of the world, is shocked to see military forces from the future, led by Lt. Hart (JASMINE MATHEWS), arrive in the present with a dire message. In the future, the world has been overrun by hard-to-kill monsters known as white spikes, and with the population now south of one million people, the future of humankind now rests in the hands of those in the present.

With a draft set up where everyday civilians are put into active duty for a seven-day stint in the future, Dan is finally called up and -- along with the likes of chatty Charlie (SAM RICHARDSON) and the far more solemn Dorian (EDWIN HODGE) who's now on his third tour -- Dan ends up in the year 2051 and immediately encounters and battles the huge monsters. He also ends up meeting a military scientist, Muri (YVONNE STRAHOVSKI), who's trying to come up with a biological weapon to use against them. With time running out for both of them, Dan does what he can to help and hopefully save the future for all humanity.

They might if they're into sci-fi based, kill-the-monsters type films.
For intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, and some suggestive references.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
