Worried about invading aliens, two children and their uncle make protective headgear out of aluminum foil to keep their thoughts private in the science fiction film Signs. In another comedic role, Mos Def plays a space traveler trying to make his way across the universe in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The consequences of being magnetic prove just as problematic for a knight in metal armor in The Court Jester.
