Title:
Extraordinary renditions: reflections of the war on terror in British and American screen science fiction
Authors:
Charles, Alec
Abstract:
This article demonstrates that the 9/11 attacks have had an impact on contemporary block-buster, science fiction movies and popular television shows – just as the Cold War had an impact on the films and television shows of the day. The authors research emphasizes the multiple ways the attacks have influenced these movies and television shows. For instance, some narratives legitimate “jingoistic paranoia”, others call for more tolerance and cultural understanding.
