From the Criterion Collection!
A landmark collaboration between writer H. G. Wells (Island of Lost Souls
), producer Alexander Korda (The Thief of Bagdad
), and designer and director William Cameron Menzies (Gone with the Wind
), Things to Come
is a science fiction film like no other; a prescient political work that predicts a century of turmoil and progress. Skipping through time, Things to Come
bears witness to world war, dictatorship, disease, the rise of television, and finally, Utopia. Conceived, written, and overseen by Wells himself as an adaptation of his own work, this mega-budgeted production (the most ambitious ever from Korda's London Films) is a triumph of imagination and technical audacity! Available in Blu-Ray and standard DVD formats.
