From the mind-bending physics of ‘Interstellar’, to attempts at alien communication in ‘Arrival’: Hollywood movies are filling up screens with the latest scientific discoveries and theories.
In this series, physicist and in-demand Hollywood science advisor Clifford Johnson and paleontologist/science expert Trevor Valle review movies to reveal what they get right, what they get wrong, and how crazy occurrences such as superpowers and over-the-top car chases could be scientifically explained. True to his British roots, Clifford remains polite and respectful, even when confronted with movies that flout the laws of physics. Trevor, with his large beard and visible tattoos, is easily riled up by bad science.
If you love science and you love the movies, you will love The Science of Hollywood Movies.
