Early Science Fiction Film

Metropolis is often regarded as being the first major sci-fi film. Science Fiction as a genre had existed in film prior to Metropolis, and certainly in literature going back to the classic works of Jules Verne. Notable earlier science fiction works, including Georges Melies’ groundbreaking A Trip to the Moon (1902) and The Lost World (1925), employed techniques that would later be used in Metropolis such as matte painting, use of glass shots, miniatures and stop motion animation.
