Is it just me, or was there a trend this summer to make movies about planets and creatures that don’t actually exist? Because there were tons of ‘em. Actual tons. And so for today’s OK! Movie Mania end of summer polls, we’re going to vote for the Best Summer Movie That Didn’t Take Place (Entirely) on Earth. Even if you’re not so into apocalyptic worlds or sci-fi action films, the good news is that most of these movies include hot guys playing the lead roles. That’s gotta count for something. So take a look at the nominees and be sure to vote below for your favorite. And come back tomorrow for another poll!
Elysium—The one set in 2154 where Matt Damon tries to help the poor people living on a destroyed Earth make it into the privileged luxury of the Elysium space ship.

After Earth—A thousand years after Earth is destroyed, a father and son (played by Will and Jaden Smith) land on Earth and must figure out how to get out, essentially.
World War Z—A zombie apocalypse hits Earth in this film starring Brad Pitt. Need I say more?
Star Trek Into Darkness—Captain Kirk and crew battle a sneaky terrorist in JJ Abram’s intergalactic action flick.
Pacific Rim—The one where humans and sea creatures literally fight each other and the humans must save Earth from the apocalypse.
