Take a mind-bending ride through the masterworks of sci-fi cinema with this compendium of top movie posters of the genre. From the esoteric to the extravagant, the posters include sensations from Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, George Lucas, James Cameron, and many more, and prove themselves every bit as epic and imaginative as the movies themselves.
The designs are arranged by chronological order and theme, offering a compelling visual history of the genre, as well as a vivid exploration of such classic sci-fi preoccupations as Time Travel, Space Opera, Post-Apocalypse, and Dystopia. A must for any cinephile, this collection of fantastical and futuristic masterworks is a testament to the outer horizons of creativity, whether in an iconic image, or its big screen equivalent.
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.”
— Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty in Blade Runner
