Overview

This brilliant collection, spanning a century of science fiction cinema, includes posters from all the landmark films—from 2001, Bladerunner, and The Man Who Fell to Earth to the Star Wars and Alien series—as well as forgotten works and the B–movies of the 1940s.

With its unique ability to bring our wildest fantasies to life, the cinema has done more than any other medium to popularize science fiction worldwide. From Metropolis to Godzilla, and from Invaders from Mars to Star Trek, science fiction films have peopled our universe, and others, with some of the studios’ most amazing creations. Considering the richness of the subject matter, it’s no wonder that generations of the most talented illustrators, painters, art directors, and designers have signed on to produce posters for these films. Their creations not only provide us with a record of how they and their contemporaries saw the future, they also serve as a visual running commentary on all that has happened in graphic design since Lumière invented motion pictures. The images in this book, representing the crème de la crème of science fiction posters from artists around the world, vividly show what has been luring audiences to the movie theaters for decades.
