As one of the fathers of science fiction, French writer Jules Verne was one of the literary giants of the 19th Century whose influence was felt on both writers and scientists and whose works are the inspiration for the steampunk genre. So it’s no surprise that there has been several film adaptations of his novels going back to the early days of cinema; one of the first feature length adaptations of a Verne novel, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, had utilized a brand new cinematic technique to bring the story to life. Released by Universal Film Manufacturing Company (better known today as Universal Pictures), Kino has given the movie its Blu-ray debut.
