In the Year 2889


This movie was produced in 1967 about a small pocket of humans that remain alive after a nuclear destruction of earth. While the acting has a lot to be desired, there are interesting glimmers of how people would act in such a situation. The fear mongering and greed that takes over.

The title is taken from the title of a short story written by Michael Verne. His father, Jules Verne, modified the story. In 1890 the story was published under Jules Verne’s name with the date part of the name changed to 2890. The idea was to make the story set 1000 years after publication date.

So sit back, make some popcorn and enjoy the movie….

Oh and for those writing think on the subject matter and how these characters relate…

About jasterling

One part of my life is in the science of anthropology and archaeology where I did comparative work. My other life that I am now pursuing is writing along the lines of fantasy/sci fi fictional writing as my one way to stay sane in this other insane world. Please enjoy the selections you will find in my blog.
