Cerys, an orphaned teenage girl, makes her way through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, surviving on her wits alone. One day, while exploring a boundless network of caves, she discovers a long-forgotten subterranean military base. Inside the deepest caverns of this base is a hangar containing the last of the Behemoths, a 100-foot-tall “Apex Predator” war mecha. And it still works.
Cerys now controls the world’s most powerful weapon... which means there’s a new sheriff in town.

World War III has ended, but the fighting must go on. Hordes of reanimated corpses – unholy armies created by maniacal warlords – still roam much of the planet. Though these warlords have all been captured or killed, their zombie troops will never surrender. They must all be destroyed.
That is the mission for Z-Force, the brave soldiers led by Commander Bernadette “Bernie” Stoddard, who must fight the final battles of this global atrocity. Their motto: “We Don’t Stop ‘Till The Last Zed Drops.”
On The Rocks
(United Kingdom, Comedy, 1975)
Winthrop Jurgens thinks he’s finally landed the perfect job: Chief Operations Supervisor for the automated mining operation on GR-179, a planetoid rich in prolixium. Deep in space, far from the stresses of modern life, he can just sit back, let the machines do all the work, and watch his retirement account grow. There’s just one detail they forgot to tell him: his immediate supervisor is his ex-wife.
(Germany, Science Fantasy, 1980)
Captain Markus Vogel heads the crew of The StarDream, the first luxury hotel in orbit around Earth. Booked to capacity since the day it began welcoming guests, The StarDream has flown without serious incident for several years. That ends on February 4, 2125, at precisely 10:34:07 PM.
At that moment, Earth vanishes in the blink of an eye.
They can't see it, they can't communicate with anyone there... but they're still in a stable orbit. "Around what?" is one of a thousand questions no one can answer.
(France, Comedy-Drama, 1977)
Josette Lesauvage is one of the greatest con artists in the local system. But when her partner double-crosses her, she needs to get off the planet five minutes ago. Frantic, she talks her way onto the Asclepius, the flagship for "Doctors Without Gravitons," a humanitarian relief organization. And she learns – after lift-off – that they are on a four-year mission to the planet Miranda: 48 months trapped with a mob of wide-eyed do-gooders, taking care of sick aliens, on a desolate rock at the edge of the galaxy.
Prison, a violent death, or both, were probably better options.
