The Alternate Movie Title Game (Sci Fi Edition)

Here are the rules: We will provide an "alternate title" for a film and ask you to name the actual film. Most of these are pretty easy. Please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play. You may have an answer other than the intended one--just be able to defend it!

1. They’re Here Already!

2. Robby & Timmie.

3. The Computer That Ruled the World.

4. Eloi Ahoy!

5. Code Name: Wildfire. 

6. Escape from Metaluna. 

7. Talleah of Venus. 

8. The Mysterious Adam Hart.

9. Dewey, Huey, and Louie.

10. The Sky Is on Fire.

11. I Am a Book.

12. We Are the Martians!

13. The Mirror Earth.

14. The Teleporter Disaster.

15. A City of Three People.

    1. You are right on two of three with The Invisible Boy (a hard one) and The Andromeda Strain. #1 is a science fiction film in which a character states: "They're here already!"

    2. #1 = Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956).

    1. Outstanding job on 1 and 7, Thomas! Your answer for #10 certainly works (and The Day the Earth Caught Fire is a fine film). There is also another film for this alternate title. In fact, footage from this film was used again in a TV series.
