Crossovers http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/ Crossovers Cowboys and Aliens, Jon Favreau, 2011 Combining western with science fiction, Cowboys and Aliens is a great example of a crossover film as it incorporates the elements of western films as well as science fiction. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807202 167807202 Cowboys and Aliens, Jon Favreau, 2011 Jake Lonergan, the main character in the film (played by Daniel Craig) is introduced to the audience when he wakes up in the dessert, wearing a metallic gauntlet on one arm he cannot remove, wounded and possessing almost no memory of his past. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807146 167807146 Cowboys and Aliens, Jon Favreau, 2011 Cowboys and Aliens two genres are displayed much more prominently than your average crossover film.

Through this technology, as well as other advances portrayed in the film we clearly see science fiction, specifically in the medical advances of Oscorp. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807114 167807114 The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, 2012 Aided by his super strength, agility and biocable wristbands Peter takes it upon himself to become a vigilante, taking on the name, Spider-Man. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807119 167807119 The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, 2012 http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807152 167807152 The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, 2012 We further see examples of science fiction through the genetic mutation of Dr. Connors (Rhys Ifans,) a brilliant scientist at Oscorp after he tests an experimental drug on himself. The drug was intended to stimulate the regrowth of limbs. However, the affects of the drug are vastly different than calculated. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807148 167807148 The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, 2012 In this shot we see Peter Parker (Spider-Man) using his biocable to prepare a trap for his enemy, The Lizard (the mutated Dr. Connors) after he begins to wreak havoc on the city. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807151 167807151 The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, 2012 Near the end of the film we see that the experimental drug Dr. Conners injected himself with has not only changed his physical body, but is also taking over his mind. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807113 167807113 The Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, 2012 He progressively becomes more violent and obsessive, compelling Peter (Spider-Man) to attempt to stop him. The film has a final battle scene between Spider-Man and The Lizard, reminiscent of King Kong, a clever visual tribute to the science fiction genre. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807147 167807147 The Fountain, Darren Aronofsky, 2006 The Fountain, a 2006 film combines three interweaving narratives, the first being set in the age of the Spanish conquistadors, another in the futuristic journey through space in an ecospheric starship (an obvious portrayal of science fiction within the film) and the third being that of a research oncologist Tommy Creo (Hugh Jackman.) http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807129 167807129 The Fountain, Darren Aronofsky, 2006 Throughout the film we are often presented with scenes from the point of view of The Astronaut narrative within his ecospheric starship.

Despite this Kathy H. and a boy she has loved since childhood plead to be spared from donations for a time so they be happy together.

However, this film crosses over again into the realm of cult horror fiction with the inclusion of Frankenstein's monster, Dracula, and the Wolfman among other classical monsters. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807173 167807173 Van Helsing, Stephen Sommers, 2004 http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807175 167807175 Van Helsing, Stephen Sommers, 2004 Horror and science fiction have long been combined. This scene, in which Frankenstein's monster is charged with lightning is directly from the early 1900s' classic monster films, which utilized science in order to make their monsters more believable. http://next2012.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=167807180 167807180 Van Helsing, Stephen Sommers, 2004 The weaponry in Van Helsing is a good example of steampunk technology.

For example, Tesla did create wireless lightbulbs that one could hold in one's hand - but the lining of the countryside with them was strictly Nolan.
