I saw this sci-fi movie once on TV, around the second half of the 90's.
In this movie, a huge UFO was found near the North Pole (or was it the south?) and an expedition is called to go inside.
Inside the UFO, I remember they found a lot of test tubes containing fetuses. The fetuses were human-like and, I think, alive.
As soon as they handled some of the UFO controls, it started sending a signal to somewhere in the sky. Scientists started to analyze the signal and they interpreted it as saying something like "the food is ready". Later, they found some "plans" explaining how life was started on Earth and what will happen in the evolutionary process as we know it today.
They discover that everything happened as "they" planned; life on Earth started, evolved, civilization rose, cities were built, technology accelerated, we discovered and entered the UFO, handled the controls and sent the signal. All of this, predicted thousand of years ago. And... the most concerning part: we sent a signal to the beings that will use us as candies or part of a huge barbecue.
In the final scene, the Earth defense forces get their radars saturated by hundred of UFOs.
They don't show the extraterrestrials eating us, but that's implicit. No happy ending this time.
Did somebody watch this and can they tell me which story it is based on... or the movie name?
I asked some AI and it told me that this film is called Independence Day, which demonstrates that AI can make jokes too.
