A Futuristic Movie Timeline [Pic]


----------------

Dan Meth has a series of Pop Cultural Charts (all of which are worth checking out). This one was submitted to us by Facebook fan Lyonel Nichols (thanks!) and we think it’s too interesting not to share. About the chart, from Dan’s blog:

No one really pays much attention to what year sci-fi movies take place. I thought it would be interesting to arrange some classic films about the future into chronological order and see what we’d find. I’ve also charted the years in which they were released as well as the current year. This is by far the geekiest thing I’ve ever done.

* I only included movies in which Wikipedia knew the exact year.

    • not to mention long long ago. so even if we included it to start with, it wouldn't be on this chart

  1. I have to nerdnitpick the date of STAR TREK given as 2387. The actual main events of the J.J. Abrams film take place in 2258, almost 130 years earlier.
