Alexander Korda’s collaboration with writer HG Wells may not have been Britain’s first science fiction film but it was certainly the most ambitious to date. It charts the story of a century; of humanity’s near destruction in a war, enslavement by a fascist dictator, and our eventual flight to the stars. In terms of sheer spectacle, few British films have tried to match it since.
