Movie Info

Our modern world through a 1930's lens.... Future '38 is a "lost" classic film from 1938, recently rediscovered in a Hollywood attic! (That's our story and were sticking to it). Filmed in blazing early Technicolor, it's the story of a man who must save the world by travelling to the future. All the way to 2015. And man, did those old-timey filmmakers get a lot right.


Critic Reviews for Future '38

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Future '38 can suffer at times from kitsch overkill, even if the playful tone and committed cast makes it a fairly pleasant romp to sit through.

A swell idea harnessed to leaden style and execution, sci-fi comedy Future '38 doesn't take off.

A love letter to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, Future '38 is a throwback screwball worth seeing.

Future '38 is, hands down, the most original comedy I've seen in recent memory. Definitely catch this one as soon as you can.

It seems Greenberg can write and directly authentically compelling material. It's a shame the rest of the film was such a bore.

June 12, 2017 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

A fantastical fever dream of a film, a psychotropic time travel tale told in almost violently colorful tones.
