10 underappreciated space movies to see before Interstellar

Ahead of Interstellar's launch, here's a selection of 10 underappreciated sci-fi films about space travel...

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar wears many of its influences proudly. The director has openly said that his film is inspired by such acclaimed pieces of cinema as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Philip Kaufman's The Right Stuff, as well as the human warmth of Steven Spielberg's 80s output. Interstellar depicts a near future where life on Earth teeters on the brink of extinction. Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former test pilot turned farmer, joins a last-ditch mission to enter a wormhole in space and find a new home for humanity; he realises that the only way to save his family is to leave it behind.

It's the latest film to tap into our fascination with the depths of space - a topic that has been explored many times since the earliest days of cinema. »
