From A Trip to the Moon (1902) to Arrival (2016), science fiction cinema has produced a body of classics with a broader range of styles, stories, and subject matter than perhaps any other film genre.
They are movies that embed themselves in the depths of the mind, colouring our view of day-to-day reality and probably fuelling a few dreams (and nightmares) along the way.
In Turner Classic Movies: Must-See Sci-Fi, fifty unforgettable films are profiled, including beloved favourites like The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) and Fantastic Voyage (1966), groundbreaking shockers like Planet of the Apes (1968) and Alien(1979), and lesser-known landmarks like Things to Come (1936) and Solaris (1972).
Illustrated by astounding colour and black-and-white images, the book presents the best of this mind-bending genre, detailing through insightful commentary and behind-the-scenes stories why each film remains essential viewing. A perfect gift for any film buff or sci-fi fanatic!
