Science-fiction-movie typography

Here’s a detailed look at the typography in the movie Alien. (Published in 2014.) (I posted this link on Facebook in 2015, but am recycling some of my old links from elsewhere to have them all in one place.)

That same blog, Typeset in the Future, also has writeups of typography in 2001, Moon, and Blade Runner, plus non-movie-specific posts like How to Make Your Text Look Futuristic. (“…we’ve forgotten to take into account the devastating Kern Wars of 2067.”)

And there’ll be a book collecting expanded versions of these articles, plus lots more, later this year.
