If you feel like seeing good classic science fiction, you have an appointment at La 2 tonight with one of those “forgotten” genres.
Over the years, many classic films go to the shelf of oblivion and are only talked about when there are brainy talks about classic cinema or a specific genre is delved into. Science fiction is probably the gender who notices that effect the most.
There are jewels of science fiction cinema about which we do not talk, unless the stars align: when there is a reference in current productions or if we have a compilation of great films of the time.
These are the best tablets for watching movies and series
If you usually watch series when you travel or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
Fortunately, in Spain we have channels like the 2where broadcasts of film classics are the order of the day and prevent them from being lost, in addition to making them available to the audience again.
Today we have a great example with the issuance of The Andromeda Strainthe 1971 science fiction classic directed by Robert Wise (West Side Story, Ultimatum on Earth…) and which is considered one of the jewels of the genre in the 70s, the one that would see the birth of sagas like Star Wars.
The 2: full with classic science fiction
Arthur Hill, David Wayne, Kate Reid, James Olson, Paula Kelly, George Mitchell y Ramon Bieri lead the cast of this film that received two Oscar nominations and one Golden Globe.
A satellite falls in New Mexico, near a remote village. The investigation team in charge of recovering the artifact finds that the entire local population has died under strange circumstances, except for a girl and an old man.
Both are transferred to a state-of-the-art laboratory where scientists will try to determine what has saved them to find a cure for the deadly microbe that has killed all their neighbors.
The 2 will broadcast tonight The Andromeda Strain at 21:55. If you haven’t seen this sci-fi classic yet or feel like enjoying a revised one, you have a date tonight with this seventies gem.
