by kissingbudha | created - 29 Mar 2013 | updated - 06 Apr 2013 | Public

The list was inspired by "Le voyage dans la lune" a short film by Georges Méliès (1902) which triggered the Sci-Fi movie genre. The list goes on to include the onslaught of Post War and B Movies from the 50's on up through to the classics of the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and to the recent blockbusters.

Also included are short or experimental Sci-fi films, some Sci-fi TV series and future Sci-Fi releases for 2013, 2014 and 2015. To get the most from this list, also search by 'US release date, Date added and Title A-Z. For example, upcoming releases without posters are listed at the end of list.
