      Title: The Greatest Sci-fi Movies Never Made (Fully Revised and Updated Edition) Format: Paperback Product dimensions: pages, X X in Shipping dimensions: pages, X X in Published: J Publisher: Titan Language: English.   There's a lot of reasons why that happens, and as David Hughes points out in his entertaining book, The Greatest Sci-Fi Movies Never Made, it's been going on for decades. Remember Steven Spielberg's "bad aliens" film, Night Skies, or James Cameron's epic .

    Contemplating how bad most movies are today can be a depressing undertaking, especially when you think about how many truly extraordinary movies by extraordinary filmmakers were not only never made, but never made it out of the planning stages. Here are six films that, for the most part, existed only in the minds of their creators. Some were pipe dreams; a few advanced to the planning stages. The screenplay for The Tourist was written by Clair Noto and, like a darker, sex-charged Men In Black, revealed a secret alien world in Manhattan, including a secret alien club call the Corridor.

    I just took at look at this book: The Greatest Sci-Fi Movies Never Made from by David Hughes. He investigates his own questions; Why are the best Sci-Fi plots still unfilmed? He answers the questions via hundreds of interviews with screenwriters, directors, producers and designers. He even sneaked into studios to discover the chaos.   The result was a record-breaking blockbuster that cost $11 million but in the forthcoming years produced $ million only from US sales. Yet, Star Wars, the all-time favourite sci-fi saga that established the popularity of the genre in the film industry would perhaps never been able to have the same frenetic success without Jodorowsky’s Dune.
