Science in film can mean futuristic sci-fi, with faster-than-light-speed spacecraft; laser battles on distant planets; or an uprising of humanlike, intelligent androids. It could also accompany stories of global disasters fueled by exaggerated versions of modern threats, such as pandemics, nuclear war, extreme weather or climate change. It could even present thoughtful portraits of real women and men who were scientific pioneers and innovators, whose discoveries shaped the world as we know it today.
