….Adaptation ‘Foundation' from David S. Goyer.

When a psycho-historian who has the power to see the future foretells that the empire will come under collapse very soon, he sets out to ensure that the knowledge of mankind isn't wiped out. If that sounds familiar, it's because Foundation was a direct influence on a lot of the seminal sci-fi films made in the 70s and 80s, most notably Star Wars…."
