Some fun facts about science fiction movies:

  • Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon), created by Georges Méliès in 1902 is often considered to be the first science fiction film. It was a dramatization of Jules Verne’s From the Earth to the Moon.
  • The first film to be recognized by UNESCO as part of its Memory of the World Register, was Metropolis – a 1927 German expressionist science fiction drama directed by Fritz Lang.
  • In the 1940s and 50s public interest in space travel was great which brought many rapidly made low-budget B movies. However, there where several successful films with larger budgets and impressive visual effects like The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), The War of the Worlds (1953), 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959) and more.
  • Released in 1982 and considered today a pioneering film for its use of computer effects, Tron was denied an Oscar nomination for visual effects because the academy saw it as cheating to use computers to create visuals and environments.
  • The space suites in Ridley Scott’s Alien were so poorly ventilated that the cast nearly collapsed due to heat of the suits (including Scott’s own children who were used in several key scenes shots). Eventually, oxygen systems were added to the suits to help actors breathe.
