A Movies.com Supercut: Our Beautiful and Horrific Future, According to the Movies

Sep 12, 2013

Everyone likes to watch the world on the brink of extinction. We may not ever want it to happen, but oh how we love watching movies about it. The future as depicted in movies is often beautiful and horrific at the same time, and so we've created this little supercut that helps celebrate the fantastical fictional futures we love to look at, but never ever want to experience first hand.  

There are over three dozen films in the mix, covering everything from Blade Runner to Hardware to Cloud Atlas, and while they're not all strictly dystopias, they do all represent some alternate-reality, sci-fi landscapes we love. We hope you enjoy what our buddy Louis Plamondon (aka @sleepyskunk) cooked up below.
