The Sci-Fi Film Alphabet

Just recently, all the horror fans out there had their knowledge of the genre tested in the form of The Horror Film Alphabet, highlighting some of the most iconic horror films with minimalist illustrations for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. This followed a look at film alphabets through the decades all the way back to the 60's and now artist Stephen Wildish has delivered another round of fun for genre lovers in the form of The Sci-Fi Film Alphabet. Once again, there's some pretty obvious ones here, but the rest of the internet will have to help you finish the entire alphabet of science fiction cinema from decades past. See it below!

Here's Stephen Wildish's Sci-Fi Film Alphabet from his Tumblr via Vulture:

Try your hand at guessing in the comments below! Answers will show up at Wildish's Tumblr eventually!

C: Cube, D: Dune - It's Sting as Feyd,  L: Last Starfighter. I'm not sure if "I" is I am legend or I Robot

Darren on Mar 13, 2012


 I think it's "I robot".

I think you're Right. The jacket is throwing me off as he wears a black jacket in both but I think it's the leather trench from I, Robot

Darren on Mar 13, 2012


A is The Abyss

Jurassic_Max on Mar 13, 2012


Agreed and B is the Birds

Marvin on Mar 13, 2012


 The Birds is not sci-fi. "B" is Blade Runner.

pickle t1ts on Mar 13, 2012


 How the eff did these hard-on's beat me!? I was first!!

pickle t1ts on Mar 13, 2012


It's probably off from the rest but Y looks like Micheal Cera from Year One but I would classify it a sci fi

Darren on Mar 13, 2012


I wouldn't classify it as sci fi is what I meant

Darren on Mar 13, 2012


is "S" Starman?

pickle t1ts on Mar 13, 2012


Could it be "Sphere"

Globug62 on Mar 13, 2012



Ethan Anderton on Mar 13, 2012


 Yeah, I think its Solaris. Good guess!

Keewatin427 on Mar 13, 2012

dotmd on Mar 18, 2012


I'm thinking letter c was close encounters of the third kind not cube

FallenMetal on Mar 13, 2012


 I think its CUBE

Ermeli on Mar 14, 2012


here's the poster for Cube

dotmd on Mar 18, 2012


I think S is last Starfighter. What the heck is Z and Y?

Havehope on Mar 13, 2012


Probably ZARDOZ and YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE. And I'd also agree about S being THE LAST STARFIGHTER.

Scopedog on Mar 13, 2012


 Nope... "L" is the Last Starfighter. It's the helmet and logo from the movie.

Keewatin427 on Mar 13, 2012


 SH*T!!  Damn, that's what I was GOING to say, but didn't.  Methinks I need new glasses; thanks for pointing out the error.

Scopedog on Mar 14, 2012


 Yep, Y is Yor....terrible terrible movie lol

EMD on Mar 16, 2012


Y - Yor, the Hunter from the Future. And N could be Big Brother from "Nineteen Eighty-Four"

S-Space Odyssey 2001

Mr.T on Mar 14, 2012


Y is definitely Yor and not Year One. He is a prehistoric blonde hunter with a mysterious medallion around his neck.
