Star Wars prequels (which used CGI brilliantly), almost no major science fiction films have been released in the last few years, likely because the trend right now is towards comic books instead of sci-fi.
That may change with Star Trek, the new trailer of which looks absolutely gorgeous. The battle scenes remind me of the exquisite battle scenes at the beginning of Revenge of the Sith. Zachary Quinto looks great as Spock. With J.J. Abrams of Lost fame directing, there is all the reason in the world to have high hopes for Star Trek.
