The Future (According to Films) – Infographic

The Future According to Films

With summer (and its new movies) almost upon us I thought that today’s infographic would be a fun way to look and see if there is something you might like to add to your queue or “must watch list”.  As films look into the future, there is a fair share  of both dystopia and very cool science that occurs.  However, when will these things happen and how should we best prepare.  Michael Hobson decided to take a look at some of the most popular futuristic films and place them in a timeline to give you not only an idea of their context to each other, but also how much longer we have before these various alien invasions and multiple ends of the world.
