I like writing this series. I really do. It’s rewarding in a number of respects. But some years are less enjoyable to cover than others. 1894, for example, had A Prisoner of Zenda, but not much else that was fun. 1895, on the other hand, has a splendid array of science fiction and fantasy, both in novels and short…
This trailer for the new Tamil time travel film Indru Netru Naalai has a few things going for it. First, the time machine looks hella cool. Second, they draw diagrams, which is an essential part of truly great time travel. And there’s a song about using a time machine to go back and take a selfie with Gandhi.

In the 1960 movie based on the H.G. Wells book The Time Machine, Rod Taylor climbs into this contraption and travels far into the future. This build of The Time Machine, by Carl Merriam, is a glorious rendition of that machine with a bunch of little details and some extremely creative element usage.
Actor Rod Taylor, most recognizable as Mitch Brenner from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and as "H. George Wells" from the 1960 film version of The Time Machine, has passed away from natural causes. He was 84.
If you could travel through time where would you go? To the future? To go see dinosaurs? And what would you do? Cure cancer? Prevent wars? Sure. But what about just using time travel to selfishly make your life easier? It sounds silly but it really might be the funniest thing you can do with time travel.
Everyone wants to go back into time and see historical events or jump ahead to experience the future. It's human nature to wonder about tomorrow and reminisce about yesterday. We can't help it. But even though DeLoreans and Victorian open carriages and hot tubs have helped us imagine time travel, most of us are…
Hrithik Roshan, the star of the awesome Krrish films, has just signed on to star in an unnamed time-travel movie, opposite Deepika Padukone. And the best news? It's going to be directed by Nitya Mehra, who was assistant director on Life of Pi, Namesake and some other great films.
Here's a fantastic short for you sci-fi fans: Record/Play, directed by Jesse Atlas, is a short film that covers time travel, love, changing fate, war, memories and cassette tapes. It's slow building yet tense, you're itching to see what new wrinkles each play of the tape will bring.

If there's one thing Foursquare actually does right, it's fantastic visualizations of where we've all collectively checked-in. The latest, called the Time Machine, focuses squarely on you and not everyone.

One of the many things we loved about indie time travel flick Safety Not Guaranteed was the jalopy time machine built by the possibly insane would-be time traveler (Mark Duplass). In this making-of short from the DVD (out today on DVD and Blu-Ray!) you can see how the crew built the thing from…
Time travel is a great concept — but how do you show it happening? This weekend's Looper picks a pretty simple way of showing gangsters jumping through time, but we've also seen kids in time-traveling spaceships, portal-jumping bandits, and a hot tub that lets you relive your past.
We're used to seeing lots of fantasy picture books aimed at little kids — so it's nice to find a bunch that are more geared towards science fiction. Check out a look at some new science fiction picture books... plus one classic.
We take it for granted that the past is fixed. History always happened the way we remember it happening. But how do we know for sure that that's the case?
