Film titles that strongly match this basic genre category:

Total Recall
Farenheit 451
District 9
Event Horizon
Minority Report
Solaris, Stalker (Tarkovsky)
Blade Runner

Genre Indicators:
The sci-fi thriller’s focus is less on the action and physical conflict and more on the unfolding of the mystery, getting at the truth: who’s doing what, where, and to whom. The protagonist can be on the run, a fugitive, but usually that is for the purpose of clearing his own name or bringing the world back into balance.
