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.
Jeff Rubin is a fellow College Humor writer as well as a fellow Beach Boys fan. He suggested this idea to me after seeing my other charts and discussing our favorite band. Back before “Pet Sounds”, drugs, and mental breakdowns, Brian Wilson pretty much only wrote about three things: Girl, Cars, and Surfing.
