I agree with the OP completely that Hollywood is used to introduce the masses to new/upcomming advances. One of the (secondary) reasons I watch Sci-Fi
is to see what is almost here as far as technology goes.
Is this movie, and others like it, meant to be a form of preparation?
I will say that having an open mind it is possible. Perhaps the stories of a Galatic War are true, more disturbingly, that war may not be going well
for 'our side'. In that case this movie (and others like it) may very well be a preparation for what is potentially on the way.
I doubt it though.
...at least I doubt it for a real invasion.
Primarily that doubt is based on the fact that I don't think we would be warned about it if it was going to happen. Additionally, regardless of any
common enemy requiring the combined focus of our entire species; there would be a tremendous backlash if TPTB suddenly announced the level of
technology required for us to be anything more than cannon fodder.
Potential negotiation by the elite in the hopes of a deal?
Not likely either.
Any scheming would serve only one purpose to an invader...prepared infrastructure naively arranged by those who thought they would be spared.
How many times have we attempted to strike a deal with ant colonies prior to constructing a freeway?
Would we honor such a deal?
Although I don't watch TV much anymore, I do still check the online guide for my area to see if there is any need to turn the box on. What I have
noticed is a definite slant in the types of programs/movies being run.
On that front I will agree that it seems like we are being prepped yes. I would go as far as saying that it is not a matter of disclosure, but actual
(public) First Contact that may be on the horizon.
Having said all of the above, Werner Von Braun is reputed to have warned an aide about TPTB's long term plan prior to his death.
The last step was to fake alien contact/invasion.
In that particular case you may be right...set up the foundation so people believe it is possible.
