From H.G. Wells' shocking book comes one of the most lavish science fiction epics ever to hit the screen! It is the year 1940 and civilization has been torn apart by a global war - transformed from a place of order and progress into a nightmarish landscape of fear and disease. One small warring tribe struggles for its existence, when out of the sky comes a fantastic craft bearing a mysterious stranger who offers them a new path, one free of war and strife. Spanning generations, Things to Come is science fiction on a grand scale, featuring eye-popping sets, a larger than life performance by Academy Award nominee Ralph Richardson, and the powerful score of Sir Arthur Bliss.
