There's no shortage of praise for Ridley Scott, Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg and the rest of Hollywood's science fiction and fantasy titans. But who are the next generation of myth-makers? Who should you be keeping an eye on? Who will make the genre-defining movies that everyone else will feverishly race to copy?
