The Futurethon is Now! – Day 2 Recap


Futurethon - Forbidden Planet

Greetings, fellow time travelers, and welcome to Day 2 of the Futurethon! Tonight, we have a trio of astounding posts for your perusal. Thanks to all who have participated, so far, and those who still plan to participate. We can’t wait to check out your posts!

Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan

Here’s a gentle reminder: If you’ve signed up, but your post isn’t quite ready (Hey, I’m always late to my own party), fear not! We’ll feature it on Day Three or the Monday Wrap-up. Latecomers are still welcome (just drop us a line). Post a comment below, email me at, or DM me on Twitter (@barry_cinematic). You may also contact Gill by commenting on her post, through her blog’s Contact Me page, or on Twitter (@realweegiemidge).


Here are Day 2’s submissions, and don’t forget to check out all the wonderful posts from Day 1 . We’ll see you tomorrow, for Day 3!

Aelita Queen of Mars Poster

While David Bowie wondered if there was life on the red planet, Lê from Crítica Retrô provides the answer, in her review of Aelita, the Queen of Mars (1924). 

Return to the Planet of the Apes

John from Tales from the Freakboy Zone isn’t monkeying around with his assessment of the short-lived animated TV series, Return to the Planet of the Apes (1975-1976). 

Rollerball Poster

Hey, sports fans, Ruth from Silver Screenings looks at the brutal, future pastime depicted in Rollerball (1975).

    1. Hi, there! Oh, it's coming... I just write at a snail's pace (if snails could write). Watch out for my Day 3 update. Thanks a bunch for joining the blogathon!
