7 Space Movies that are out of this world

Space Movies

In this post, I’m going to give you some recommendations for space movies. I’ve wanted to become an astronaut for years after visiting NASA when I was younger. And it was pretty serious too, going to university to study science and learning Russian on my own. As my life progressed and changed a little, my goals and dreams slightly changed too. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t (absolutely) love space anymore! I’ve watched a lot of space movies or space-related movies over the years and wanted to share them. A couple of my favorite movies EVER are space movies (Interstellar & Hidden Figures)!

1. Interstellar (2014)

Note: One of the BEST movies I’ve ever seen! Everything by Christopher Nolan is amazing, but Interstellar is absolutely one of my faves.


With our time on Earth coming to an end, a team of explorers undertakes the most important mission in human history: traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars.

2. Hidden Figures (2016)

Note: Another movie that is one of the best I have ever (or more like ten times) seen! Not to mention that it’s based on a true story.

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

3. The Martian (2015)

Note: Based on the book by Andy Weir (Amazon/Bookdepository/Bol.com)

The Martian

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.

4. First Man (2018)

First Man

First Man is the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

5. Apollo 13 (1995)

Note: Based on the true story of Apollo 13!

Apollo 13

NASA must devise a strategy to return Apollo 13 to Earth safely after the spacecraft undergoes massive internal damage putting the lives of the three astronauts on board in jeopardy.

7. Gravity (2013)

Note: This movie isn’t my favorite space movie ever, but I’ve found that different movies appeal to different people. So it might be a movie you do really like!
