STAR WARS FORCED OUT

FILM classic Star Wars has lost its crown as the world's best sci-fi movie.

Space adventure Serenity knocked the 1977 Darth Vader film off the top spot in a poll.
The movie, about the crew of a spaceship, was the brainchild of Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon.

Ridley Scott's Blade Runner took third place in the SFX magazine survey of 3000 fans, with the original Planet Of The Apes in fourth place, followed by Keanu Reeves's The Matrix and space horror hit Alien.

Other top 10 entries included Fifties classic Forbidden Planet, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Terminator and Back To The Future.

SFX magazine editor Dave Bradley said: "Seeing Serenity topple Star Wars is a massive surprise."

Little known film stuns sci-fi heavyweightFilm classic Star Wars has lost its crown as the world's best sci-fi movie.

George Lucas`s Star Wars debut has been usurped by the little-known 2005 title Serenity in a poll of sci-fi favourites.

Blade Runner, starring Harrison Ford, is third, following 1977 classic Star Wars.

Planet Of The Apes scoops fourth place, followed by Keanu Reeves`s film The Matrix and Sigourney Weaver`s Alien.

Others in the top ten include Fifties classic Forbidden Planet, Stanley Kubrick`s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and The Terminator, which launched Arnold Schwarzenegger`s career.

The Michael J Fox time-travelling classic Back to the Future takes tenth place in the SFX magazine poll of 3,000 fans.

Serenity, about the crew of a spaceship of the same name, was a spin-off from a short-lived US TV series.

SFX magazine editor Dave Bradley said: "Seeing Serenity topple Star Wars as the UK`s favourite sci-fi movie is a massive surprise.

"The TV show may have been cancelled, yet the Serenity universe clearly struck a chord with fans, thanks to its likeable characters, witty dialogue and amazing special effects.

"Our list features some really classic movies, many of which, like Serenity, launched to no praise or applause at the box office, but have lived on for many years thanks to the fans, and continue to influence today`s films and TV."

The Top Ten:
1. Serenity (2005)
2. Star Wars (1977)
3. Blade Runner (1982)
4. Planet of the Apes (1968)
5. The Matrix (1999)
6. Alien (1979)
7. Forbidden Planet (1956)
8. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
9. The Terminator (1984)
10. Back to the Future (1985)
