It's no good - I can't wait for the decade to be over before I start to classify the Sci-fi babes of the current decade! These pages chart the series of current Sci-fi films and I will do my best to keep them updated when I have more time - so without further ado - read on.....
This decade did - and still does - boast a huge number of films from the DC/Marvel universes. To see the amazing collection of babes, click on the banner...
A first for this site, sci-fi meets Bollywood in this remake of Back To the Future. Starring former Miss World Aishwarya Rai as Mala. The film, Action Replay (2010) was considered a flop and although doesn't sit easily in the sci-fi genre, it does feature time travel and is listed under IMdB - so it's included. Aishwarya has been called "the most beautiful woman in the world" and it's not hard to see why.
In the very same year, India released its most expensive film to date, and possibly its biggest grossing), another Science Fiction blockbuster, which had 12 years in the making, called Enthrian (2010). Out of a number of candidates, Aishwarya Rai, once again, was cast as the main female character, Sana. This film is a more credible sci-fi film, which sees a scientist creating a robot who falls in love with his fiancée (yes you guessed, Aishwarya). Before I researched these 2 film, I hadn't realised that India had a history of sci-fi films, but it seems they have been making them since the 1950s! More research is clearly needed on this subject, and it may be fitting to add pages devoted to the lesser known industries. In the meantime, here is the very beautiful Aishwarya again.
The sci-fi comedy Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) boasts a number of babes, but perhaps Jenny, played by Lyndsy Fonseca, was the sexiest of them all.
The film spawned a sequel, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015), again with a number of attractive characters, and we were privileged to see the very beautiful Bianca Haase playing Sophie.
I think I need to delve a lot deeper into films and TV shows produced by countries other than USA and UK. The Chinese/Hong Kong/Taiwanese production, Future X-Cops (2010), included Fan Bingbing as Millie and gives me reason to think that I may unearth a large number of sci-fi babes to bring to a new audience...something for the future maybe? We'll Meet this actress again...
So I did delve deeper and updated the site with a number of babes totally unknown to me, mainly because they were from Asia. Let's go back to India, where the British actress , Aruna Shields, played Maya, the girlfriend of a savvy thief in Prince (2010).
Then I became widely distracted, as I explored some Japanese and similar-themed fighting girl films unknown and unseen to me. What I found were some of the most beautiful and sexiest scifi babes ever.
For a start, there's the kiss-ass character known as Summer Vale who appears in a series of films: Dark Rising: Bring your Battle Axe (2007) and Agency of Vengeance: Dark Rising (2011). There is also a TV series called Dark Rising: Warrior of Worlds (2014-). The babe in question is played by Canadian actress, Bridgette Kingsley. I think she deserves a couple of pictures
Appearing in the 2011 film, we also have Lauren Williams as Rosemary Black.
I was happy with my research, but then stumbled on a film called Travelers: Dimension police (2013). This is about some girls who travel from dimension to dimension and kick ass to keep the universe in law and order. Nao Nagasawa, better known for playing a power ranger-type character, known as Hurricane Blue, as well as a stunt and body double. In this film, however, she plays Ai Osaka. She is ably supported by Yui Mamose, played by beauty Ayumi Kinoshita and Haruka Saegusa, played by Yuuko Takayama. I think you will agree that these are 3 hot babes...
But wait, this led me to Discover Iron Girl, in Iron Girl (2012) played by Kiara Asuka...
...and Cyborg 009-1, played by Mayuko Iwasa in 009-1 The End of the Beginning (2013).
It's been a long time to wait for the sequel to Tron, but from a sci-fi babe point of view it did not disappoint, even if the film maybe did. Olivia Wilde starred as Quorra...
and Beau Garret teased us as Gem, one of the sirens in Tron: Legacy (2010).
Brit Marling, a newcomer to films and the genre, makes a pretty impressive debut as Rhoda Williams in Another Earth (2011). Not content to be offered the role a dumb blond in b-type horror films, she co-wrote the film as a means to starring in it - clever girl!
Getting a bigger outing than she did in her Transformers' appearance, the Tasmanian-born actress Rachel Taylor continues to impress as Anne in The Darkest Hour (2011).
Both Gantz (2010) and Gantz: The Perfect Answer (2011) are based on the manga comic books, anime series and PS2 game of the same name. The films tell the story of would-be alien killers chosen by a mysterious black sphere with Japanese actress Natsuna Watanabe as Megumi Kishimoto. Unfortunately most of the information I can find on this actress is in Japanese, and as I don't speak the language, I will have to wait for more information to come out, but as I said earlier in this page, the market for sci-fi is expanding as the genre receives world-wide reception and that can only be good news for us!
Sometimes - well often actually - you are watching or researching a sci-fi movie and you come across a really daft plot! Well, in I am Number 4 (2010), aliens hiding on Earth can only be killed in a numerical sequence. Dianna Agron Plays Sarah Hart, the 4 in question...
But wait - the film boasts another hottie. Teresa Palmer played Number 6 and here she is...
If only Mission Impossible III could have been described as sci-fi, then Maggie Q would have appeared in this site a lot earlier. It was not to be, but the heavens are smiling on us because Priest (2011), whilst mainly about vampire hunters, certainly is listed. Here she plays the Priestess
But even the Priestess had competition in the incredibly beautiful Lily Colins who played the kidnapped niece, Lucy Pace, which started all the trouble.
Another eagerly-awaited sequel asked the question, who was going to replace Megan Fox as the sexy sidekick in the Transformers franchise. Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely was the response as Carly Spencer In Transformers: Dark of the moon (2011). Whilst being clearly very sexy in a number of scenes in the film, for me at least she lacked the vibrancy that Megan Fox brought to the role - and what's with those weird lips?
The sci-fi sequences just roll on in this decade. And if its not sequels, then a prequel will do these days. X-Men: First Class (2011) told the story of the main X-men characters when they were just starting out to discover their mutant powers. Jennifer Lawrence was a good choice for the young Mystique and Raven Darkholme, although I was and still a massive fan of the original mystique, played by Rebecca Romjin Stamos. You make up your own mind which character was the best.
Emma Frost, played by January Jones continues to remain one of my favourite X-Men babes. The character didn't appear enough in the film for me, and was a bit disappointing, to be honest, but it was good to see her when we did.
Battleship (2011) was a film all about - er - a battleship. Not noticeable for anything more than it's special effects which by now are commonplace in the genre, it also starred a little-known sci-fi actress by the name of Rhianna, as petty officer Cora "weps" Raikes. Not normally someone I would include, as I didn't find her at all sexy in the film, but for all you Rhianna fans here she is.
A more impressive debut and cross-over was that by PussyCat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. As Lily Poison in Men in Black III (2012), she played the very bad and very sexy girlfriend of Boris the animal, but sadly didn't last!
After sequels, prequels and three-quels, another way to make money out of a film is the remake. And so we had Total Recall (2012), which starred two of my favourite vampire-killing babes. It was Kate Beckinsale, however, who stole the show for me as Lori, which is stiff competition for Sharon Stone who starred in the original.
..and here's Jessica Biel as Melina...
Prometheus (2012) improved greatly on the Ripley character and introduced Noomi Rapace as scientist Elizabeth Shaw. This girl has got to be tough - she instigated the removal of the alien inside her by operation and within seconds was able to walk about (she did pass out later though!
I always have time for Charleze Theron on these pages. She played Meredith Vickers.
I watched Dredd (2012) only recently and found Judge Cassandra Anderson to be a cute rookie-type. She turned out to be a bad-ass killer in the end but still butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, well-played by Olivia Thirlby.
Jennifer Lawrence returns! The Hunger Games (2012) gave us our first glimpse of Katniss Everdeen, a sixteen year-old girl who occasionally hunted to keep her family alive. During the course of the hunger games, she turns from a mild-mannered quiet girl with little friends to an ace killer.
A year later, in the sequel, The Hunger Games Catching Fire (2013), she returned.
In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1 (2014), Katniss returned where she became "The Mockingjay", the symbol of rebellion.
And finally The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 2 (2015)
Back to Bollywood - Priya Mehra was played by Priyanka Chopra in Krrish 3 (2013). Priya is the wife of our superhero. I don't know how I missed this hot babe, but she also starred in Krrish back in 2006 also.
If you are a Star Trek Fan, you will know that Jim Kirk had a fling with Dr Carole Marcus and had a son, David, together before Jim "stayed away". In this reboot, Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Carol was played by Alice Eve, and showed us exactly why Jim fell for her in the first place...
The franchise spawned a further film in Star Trek: Beyond (2016). Jayla, played by Sophia Boutella is a scavenger and formidable warrior, living in a wrecked booby-trapped spaceship.

I didn't think GI Joe: Retaliation (2013) was anywhere near as good as the original, but we did still have a sprinkling of babes... First we have Elodie Yung as female ninja Jinx...
...who strangely reminds me of Cis in The Animatrix (2003)
...and of course Adrianne Palicki as Jaye
This hottie played Wonder Woman in the TV film pilot - Wonder Woman (2011). The series was never made, which is a real shame..
And if you aren't feeling well as a result of that image, then perhaps a visit from the nurse is needed. Well, look no further, because a very seductive nurse, Bainsley, appeared in Terry Gilliams's Film, The Zero Theroem (2013). The nurse is played by Melanie Thierry.
In Edge of Tomorrow (2014), a soldier gets to relive the same day again and again. Mind you, with special forces warrior Rita Vrataski by his side each day, who wouldn't mind that. Played by Emily Blunt.
It's good to see Scarlett Johansson back, this time as drug mule Lucy in Lucy (2014). She becomes a merciless warrior after synthetic drugs are released inside her, giving her superpowers.
In my blog, I explained why Arwen, played by Liv Tyler, couldn't find a place in these pages, but she does play in at least one sci-fi film - Space Station 76 (2014), as Jessica.
Megan Fox could look sexy in a builder's outfit. In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), she plays fearless reporter April O'Neil.
And when she returned in the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016). Having seen the film now, I have to say I don't know what Megan was trying to with her cosmetic surgery - she just didn't need it. And it went a little wrong, I think. She still looked pretty good, though. What do you think?
Of Course, Megan had already been replaced Rosie Huntington-Whitely, and now she would be replaced by Nicola Peltz in Transformers Age of Extinction (2014). She played Tessa Yeagar, our hero's daughter. Not a bad trio of babes eh?
Japanese films are by no means my speciality, and I don't speak Japanese, so I rely on Google to translate stuff for me, but I do like anime and manga. The End of the World and the Cat’s Disappearance (2015) the main character comes across two odd girls in skimpy get-ups: Rainy (Momoko Midorikawa) and Irony (Ako Nagai) from the planet Jupiter. I'm a sucker for the anime babe and just had to include them..
Artificial Intelligence is currently a big development in the world as we speak, and a number of films have tried to deal with the issue. Ex-Machina (2015) was such a film where the AI in question was a female robot with a beautiful human-looking face. Ava, of course, being intelligent, plotted to escape from her laboratory world and ended up killing her creator (heard that before?), escaping incognito. The beautiful face belonged to swede Alicia Vikander.
Here's Mila Kunis. In Jupiter Ascending (2015) she played Jupiter Jones.
Daisy Ridley caused a sensational interest when she appeared as Rey in the long-awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
I haven't caught up with Terminator Genisys (2015), but I happen to know that the mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke, played Sarah Connor. Good choice.
Just before I go for a break, I came across this stunning still from Hot Bot (2016). The character is a sex-robot, called Bardot and is played by Cynthia Kirchner.
