Description

A future history as scripted by the visionary writer H.G. Wells, Things to Come set a high benchmark for science fiction with its fantastic design, gigantic sets and spectacular special effects. Acknowledged as a landmark within the genre, Oscar-winning William Cameron Menzies' (Invaders from Mars) creation is an astounding vision of post-war desolation and utopian futurism.

Starring Oscar-nominated Raymond Massey (A Matter of Life and Death) as John Cabal and his descendants and the award-winning Ralph Richardson (The Four Feathers) as The Boss, Things to Come showcases a gorgeous, instantly recognisable score by Arthur Bliss. Presented for the first time in High Definition, this version of Things to Come has been painstakingly restored from the remaining film elements and represents the most complete version known to exist.

It's Christmas 1940 and the people of Everytown, unprepared and ill-equipped, find themselves at war against an enemy who have been planning such a conflict for years. The land is devastated by the horrors of aerial bombardment as the war drags on for thirty years, causing a period of despair, with feudal tyrants ruling a downtrodden populace suffering famine and pestilence. Can the human race rise above its desperate circumstances and build a scientific utopia?

Includes extensive booklet (expanded from the DVD) by Nick Cooper.
