What do you mean by "over the past few years". Aliens have been in popular culture for a very long time now. One of the first films ever made,
A Trip to the Moon
, made in 1902, featured "moon-men". 1930s movie serials such as Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers usually included aliens.
Aliens were a huge part of 1950s science fiction films.
Pulp fiction stories written in the 1930s often involved aliens. There were aliens in novels from the 1800s. The popular idea that other intelligent
life lived elsewhere in the universe is a very old idea. Some of the intellectuals of the American Revolution believed that life could exist
...So if references of aliens in popular culture is an attempt by TPTB to desensitize us, then they seem to be taking their own sweet time doing so.
What makes references to aliens in movies today any different?
