UPCOMING ’80s SCI-FI SUPERDOC IN SEARCH OF TOMORROW ADDS IVAN REITMAN, GALE ANNE HURD, AND PETER WELLER TO ROSTER OF IN-DEPTH CELEBRITY INTERVIEWS FILMMAKING TEAM BEHIND THE CELEBRATED IN SEARCH OF DARKNESS ‘80s HORROR DOCUMENTARY SERIES BOASTS NEW PROJECT WITH OVER 75+ INTERVIEWS WITH SCIENCE-FICTION ICONS
Los Angeles, CA – April 8th, 2021 — In Search of Tomorrow, the long-form documentary about ‘80s sci-fi movies from CREATORVC, has recruited director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters I & II), producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens), actor Peter Weller (Robocop, Buckaroo Banzai), and more talent for in-depth interviews looking back on the extensive, beloved era of genre film. Executive produced by Robin Block and written/directed by David Weiner (In Search of Darkness Parts I & II), In Search of Tomorrow features over 75+ celebrity, artist, and expert interviews as it dives into all things science fiction in film.
Building on the success of the In Search of documentary series, In Search of Tomorrow covers the expansive film history of the decade that defined the sc-fi genre. In addition to Reitman, Hurd, and Weller, In Search of Tomorrow features an impressive range of interviews with on-screen actors and behind-the-scenes talent to delve into fan-favorite titles of ‘80s science fiction, year-by-year, to show the breadth of the genre. Over 25 new names have been added to the In Search of Tomorrow cast, including Bruce Boxleitner (TRON), Adrienne Barbeau (Escape from New York, Swamp Thing), Lysette Anthony (Krull), Jesse Ventura (Predator, The Running Man), Julie Brown (Earth Girls Are Easy), Gene Simmons (Runaway), Flight of the Navigator director Randal Kleiser and star Joey Cramer, Mark Goldblatt (The Terminator, RoboCop), John Dykstra (Star Wars, Star Trek), and Stewart Raffill (The Philadelphia Experiment, The Ice Pirates, Mac and Me). Examining sci-fi nostalgia through a scientific lens will be NASA experts, astrophysicists and futurists who will ground the genre to Earth while also celebrating future tech and fun fictional elements.
In addition to the new talent, In Search of Tomorrow has launched an Indiegogo campaign to aid in not only expanding the documentary’s current production efforts and adding more interviews, but to allow passionate sci-fi fans the opportunity to pre-order the film and become involved with the filmmaking process of the documentary.
From In Search of Tomorrow writer/director David Weiner: “In Search of Tomorrow is coming together beautifully. The level of talent participating is a ‘who’s who’ of legendary sci-fi icons, from actors and filmmakers to visionaries and dreamers, and I’m humbled to have the opportunity to sit with them; despite the challenges of indie production in a COVID-complicated environment, we are fortunate to have been able to safely continue our extended interviews. A celebration of imagination in one of the most creatively entertaining decades of film, we are crafting an expansive, four-plus-hour film journey worthy of the amazing content that came out of ’80s sci-fi cinema. I can’t wait for film lovers and true fans of the genre to see it.”

For those of you who know us, we adored the In Search of Darkness I & II and hope that In the Search of Tomorrow keeps along those lines as that is a format that works so well and allows for such a time for the genre to shine the way it deserves. We are beyong excited for what will come up. You should be too. I got in early to support the project, but there is still time if you want to! (Waits excitedly for when that Blu-ray comes).

I am but a small website in this big wide world. As much as I would love to make this website a big and wonderful entity. That would bring in more costs. So, for now all I hope is to make Upcoming On Screen self sufficient. Well enough to where any website fees are less of a worry for me in the future. You can support the website below…
You can support us in a variety of ways (other than that wonderful word of mouth) and those lovely follows. If you are so inclined to help out then you can support us via Patreon, find our link here! We don’t want to ask much from you, so for now we have limited our tiers to £1.50 and £3.50. These will of course grow the more we plan to do here at Upcoming On Screen.
Thanks for reading, every view helps us out more than you would think (we have fragile egos). Until next time.
