Poll: What’s the Best Alien Invasion Movie?

If there’s one thing that’s always fascinated mankind, it’s space, and just what could be “out there” — and what aliens might want from us.

That fascination has spurred countless alien invasion movies, including “Independence Day,” which sees its sequel, “Independence Day: Resurgence” debuting June 24. It’s only one of the extraterrestrials v. humans movies to hit theaters over the years.

What’s your favorite movie depicting aliens making their way to Earth? Did you appreciate “Men in Black’s” (which, like “Independence Day,” included Will Smith) light-hearted touch, or appreciate M. Night Shyamalan’s spooky spin with “Signs”? Note that every alien movie isn’t necessary an “alien Earth invasion” movie, hence why a classic like Ridley Scott’s “Alien” didn’t make the poll.

UPDATE: This poll has been closed, with “Independence Day” taking the top spot among alien invasion movies.
