Steampunk is a combination of fantasy and science fiction, often creating products with a huge cult following. With overwhelming impact from writers like, for example, Jules Verne, Robert Louis Stevenson and H. G. Wells, it has an exceptionally specific style yet is, without a doubt, inventive – and people like Terry Gilliam, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Katsuhiro Ohtomo, Karel Zeman and Hayao Miyazaki have comprehended it to make amazing movies.
Steampunk style recall Victorian England (late nineteenth century) with its coal and steam motors. Since electricity never being discovered, imagine a world of steam-powered machines built with unrealistic dimensions. Not to mention flying ships, steam-powered robot insects, humongous submarines, stunning guns, and so on. Well, that retro-futuristic world is nothing more than the world of Steampunk.
The next list brings together the best steampunk movies that are family-friendly, ingenious, entertaining, with tons of spectacular imaginary places and action scenes. Each movie features steampunk, dieselpunk and Victorian clothes, parallel worlds, innovative steam engineering, gizmos, plenty of imagination and good humor.

The Prestige (2006)
· Director: Christopher Nolan
· Writers: Jonathan Nolan (screenplay), Christopher Nolan (screenplay)
· Main actors: Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson
· IMDB rating: 8.5/10
Since that moment, both become famous and rival magicians, sabotaging the performance of the other on the stage. When Alfred performs a successful trick, Robert becomes obsessed trying to disclose the secret of his competitor – however, with tragic consequences. In the end, two stage magicians engage in a “fight” in an attempt to create the ultimate stage illusion.
What makes this movie so incredible is that while it is indeed a movie about magicians (or illusionists) it is also a complex character study about how self destructive obsessions are with a sideline love story and a steampunk twist. A unique plot with an amazing cast.
A Trip to the Moon (1902)
· Director: Georges Méliès (uncredited)
· Main actors: Georges Méliès, François Lallement, Jules-Eugène Legris
· IMDB rating: 8.2/10
Méliès wrote the script, acted in the film in the lead role, designed the sets and costumes, directed, photographed, and produced the film! He hired even acrobats from the Folies Bergere to play the lunar inhabitants named Selenites, and the dressed assistants who launched the cannon were dancers from the Châtelet ballet.
Méliès’ 400th and most notable film (only six years after the Lumière Brothers’ legendary first projection) was made on an astronomical budget for the time of 10,000 Francs – very risky, but worthwhile since it was hugely successful.
A group of men travel to the moon by being shot in a capsule from a giant cannon. They are captured by moon-men, escape, and return to the earth. The very same film that Martin Scorsese used in “Hugo” is one of the best steampunk films in history!
Taking inspiration from the books of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells, George Méliès, a pioneer in filmmaking, makes a film about a rocket that is sent to the moon. Much like with the works of Verne and Wells, the film happens to become steampunk because of the time it was made. Even steampunk is a subgenre that comes from science fiction, it only takes elements from 19th century or before to fall into that genre. Since “A Trip to the Moon” was filmed in the early 20th century, it becomes not only one of the earliest sci-fi films, but of the steampunk genre as well.
With a length of 12 minutes and 52 seconds, the film can be found on YouTube and is considered as one of the most influential films in cinema history. All of this makes it one film that any cinephile should watch.
Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)
· Director: Hayao Miyazaki
· Writers: Hayao Miyazaki (screenplay), Diana Wynne Jones (novel) (as Daiana Win Jônzu)
· Main actors: Chieko Baishô, Takuya Kimura, Tatsuya Gashûin
· IMDB rating: 8.2/10
Is a love story between an 18-year-old girl named Sophie, cursed by a witch into an old woman’s body, and a magician named Howl. Under the curse, Sophie sets out to seek her fortune, which takes her to Howl’s strange moving castle.
In the castle, Sophie meets Howl’s fire demon, named Calcifer. Seeing that she is under a curse, the demon makes a deal with Sophie – if she breaks the contract he is under with Howl, then Calcifer will lift the curse that Sophie is under, and she will return to her 18-year-old shape.
Considered by many as one of the best works of Hayao Miyazaki, this steampunk movie is an impressive and visually stunning animated movie, with a complex story. As with every Miyazaki film, it’s a touching and dynamic experience that takes audiences to strange worlds of fantasy and remarkable inventions.
The steampunk elements are highly notorious here – the castle itself might be one of the best inventions in the genre! The film was nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Film in 2003 and remains as one of the most famous works of its impressive director. It is an very interesting experience that can be watched and enjoyed by all kinds of audiences.
· Director: Terry Gilliam
· Writers: Terry Gilliam (screenplay), Tom Stoppard (screenplay)
· Main actors: Jonathan Pryce, Kim Greist, Robert De Niro
· IMDB rating: 8.0/10
The movie is filled with violent, intense, and blood-soaked scenes, including torture, explosions in public places, bloody bodies and body parts, gunfire, and oppression of civilians by vast numbers of police-state troops. Because of that violence, and because of the film’s black tone, hilarious characters, and often profound sequences, the movie is best for only the most mature or sophisticated teens.
Sam Lowry is a technocrat that is needlessly convoluted and inefficient. He dreams of a life where he can fly away from technology and overpowering bureaucracy, and spend eternity with the woman of his dreams. While trying to rectify the wrongful arrest of one Harry Tuttle, Lowry meets the woman he is always chasing in his dreams, Jill Layton. Meanwhile, the bureaucracy has fingered him responsible for a rash of terrorist bombings, and both Sam and Jill’s lives are put in danger.
“Brazil” makes everyone hope for a world in which people are free to live, dream, and protest. After all, as Harry Tuttle would say, “We’re all in this together“.
The City of Lost Children (1995)
· Directors: Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet
· Writers: Gilles Adrien, Jean-Pierre Jeunet
· Main actors: Ron Perlman, Daniel Emilfork, Judith Vittet
· IMDB rating: 7.7/10
When the gang of Cyclops kidnap Denree, the little brother of the former whale hunter One, he is helped by the young street orphan girl Miette, who steals for the Siamese Pieuvre, to reach the platform where Krank leaves with his cloned dwarf wife Mademoiselle Bismuth, his six cloned sons and a brain, and rescue the children.
As strange as it may sound, it’s considered one of the best examples of steampunk in film. It’s a dark fantasy with heavy use of 19th century sci-fi settings and is said to be an homage to Terry Gilliam’s works.
While it certainly may not be everyone’s favorite movie, it’s undoubtedly a charismatic experience in every way.
· Director: Matthew Vaughn
· Writers: Jane Goldman (screenplay), Matthew Vaughn
· Main actors: Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Sienna Miller
· IMDB rating: 7.7/10
Tristan, the youth, is not the only one looking for her: three witches, led by Lamia, want her heart to make them young; and, the sons of the dead king of Stormhold want her because she holds a ruby that will give one of them title to the throne. Assisting Tristan are his mother, the victim of a spell, and a cross-dressing pirate of the skies. Will Tristan win his true love?
This is a movie made for both children and adults alike. The fairy tale story will keep children entertained, while its detours will appeal to any adult whose childhood might have included a storybook. The costumes are imaginative and lush, and the stone construction of the village adds to the fairytale feel of the movie. The special effects are well done, and the interiors dark and detailed.
“Stardust” is fun enough the first time. Since the movie doesn’t take itself too seriously, some people might consider it goofy at first, but the best way to enjoy this great film is not to expect a deep drama, but an entertaining fresh steampunk movie.
The Illusionist (2006)
· Director: Neil Burger
· Writers: Neil Burger (screenplay), Steven Millhauser (short story “Eisenheim the Illusionist”)
· Main actors: Edward Norton, Jessica Biel, Paul Giamatti
· IMDB rating: 7.6/10
Despite having not seen each other in fifteen years when they were teenagers, they almost immediately recognize each other as Eduard Abramovich and Sophie von Teschen, they who had a doomed romance at that time due to their class differences. The Duchess is soon to be wed to the Crown Prince Leopold in what would be for him a marriage solely in pursuit of power: overthrowing his father, the Emperor Leopold, as well as overtaking the Hungarian side of the empire. And the plot continues.
This movie is stunning in many aspects. Visually in terms of locations, inside and out, there was great consistency and a nothing seemed strained. The story weaved fluidly through these locations and seemed to make the locales a vital part of the story. “The Illusionist” sets up a fascinating parable about art, religion and politics – and the cloudy boundaries between them.
The Fabulous World of Jules Verne (1958)
· Director: Karel Zeman
· Writers: Frantisek Hrubín, Jules Verne (novel)
· Main actors: Lubor Tokos, Arnost Navrátil, Miroslav Holub
· IMDB rating: 7.6/10
The style remind of Georges Méliès. Made in black and white, the movie contain underwater sequences where the fishes swimming are so accurately drawn they can be used in a field guide. There are images of ships, submarines, flying craft, castlesand machinery that are drawn with remarkable details.
The late Victorian atmosphere is designed to look like this world that never was and delight us in the magic of science. Jules Verne himself would be proud of this movie. An outstanding achievement, this remarkable film just gets better every time you watch it.
Jules Verne is often considered as a father of the steampunk genre. Several of his works make use of unusual and fantastic scientific creations in a period of time where they couldn’t be created. “The Fabulous World of Jules Verne” makes a homage to the famous auteur by telling the story of a band of pirates who kidnap a scientist in order to get an futuristic weapon to help them with their piracy. It deserves to be watched by any good cinephile – and especially for those who love the steampunk genre.
· Director: Martin Scorsese
· Writers: John Logan (screenplay), Brian Selznick (book)

· IMDB rating: 7.5/10
Hugo is an orphan boy living in the walls of a train station in 1930’s Paris. He figured out how to settle clocks and different devices from his dad and uncle which he puts to utilize keeping the train station tickers running. The only thing that he has left that associates him to his dead father is an automaton (mechanical man) that doesn’t work without a key. Hugo needs to locate the key to find the mystery he trusts it contains.
What’s really nice is that Hugo, on his adventures, meets Georges Méliès, who works in the train station, and his god-daughter. Hugo finds that they have a connection to his father and the automaton, and he discovers it unlocks some memories the old man has buried inside regarding his past. And that’s great because Georges Méliès is a real person, as you’ll see below!
“Hugo” celebrates the birth of the cinema and the preservation of old films. At one point has a double dream, waking from one into the other, both of them forms of nightmares connected to the cinema. In broad terms, the story of his hero, Hugo Cabret, is Scorsese’s own story.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
· Director: Guy Ritchie
· Writers: Michele Mulroney, Kieran Mulroney
· Main actors: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Jared Harris
· IMDB rating: 7.5/10
Sherlock Holmes is investigating terrorist attacks in London alone since his old partner Dr. John Watson will get married a few days later with Mary. His investigations point to Professor James Moriarty as the person responsible for the explosions. When Dr. Watson and Mary are attacked in the train while traveling for their honeymoon, Holmes delivers Mary to the protection of his brother – Mycroft.
Soon Holmes and Dr. Watson disclose that Professor Moriarty has bought arms and ammunition factories and is trying to start a war in Europe killing political leaders and politicians. Now Sherlock and Watson have to stop Moriarty and his dangerous associate, the skilled former Colonel Sebastian Moran to avoid the imminent war.
The movie begins with a vast explosion in Strasbourg followed by similar pyrotechnics in London, Paris and Germany, which punctuate endless chases, fights on trains and battles that result in a body count that anticipates the world war Holmes seeks to avert.
April and the Extraordinary World (2015)
· Directors: Christian Desmares, Franck Ekinci
· Writers: Franck Ekinci (screenplay), Benjamin Legrand (screenplay)
· Main actors: Marion Cotillard, Philippe Katerine, Jean Rochefort
· IMDB rating: 7.4/10
Deprived of radio, television, electricity, aviation, and the combustion engine, the world is set in outdated technology, dozing in the previous century’s knowhow dominated by coal and steam. In this inept universe, Avril, a teenage girl, Darwin, her talking cat, Pops, her grandfather, and Julius, a young police informer, go off in search of Avril’s parents, two of the missing scientists. They’ll face many dangers and mysteries in this strange new world.
“April and the Extraordinary World” is an animated movie that perfectly uses steampunk elements to tell a charming story of a young girl searching for her parents. It actually takes place in a world where there are no trees, and the air is so bad that people can’t live without the use of masks. It is a perfect example of the steampunk genre.
And yet, despite this, it happens to be a beautiful story that both adults and children can enjoy. It features powerful visual settings, bring classic and nostalgic animation sets that works perfectly for the movie. The animation is hand-drawn, giving it a solid retro feel.
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (1954)
· Director: Richard Fleischer
· Writer: Earl Felton (screenplay)
· Main actors: Kirk Douglas, James Mason, Paul Lukas
· IMDB rating: 7.2/10
The oceans during the late nineteenth century are not a safe place – many ships have been lost. Sailors have returned to port with stories of a vicious giant whale with a long horn which sinks their ships. The film’s plot (which has very little to do with Verne’s original) concerns Professor Aronnax and his two companions, Conseil and Ned Land, who board an American warship to take part in a search for the mysterious sea monster into an attempt to unravel the full mystery.
Watch the original 1954 version to get the full steampuck effect. This movie is considered by many to be the quintessential steampunk flick. It’s like a steampunk version of Moby Dick!
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988)
· Director: Terry Gilliam
· Writers: Charles McKeown (screenplay), Terry Gilliam (screenplay)
· Main actors: John Neville, Eric Idle, Sarah Polley
· IMDB rating: 7.2/10
“The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” is visually fascinating. The movie received 4 artistic Oscar nominations, and deservedly so – it’s a beautiful film to look at. The special effects are astonishing, but so is the humor with which they are employed.
It is not enough that one of the baron’s friends is the fastest runner in the world. He must run all the way to Spain and back in an hour, to fetch a bottle of wine and save the baron’s neck. And he must be able to outrun a speeding bullet, stop it, and redirect it back toward the man who fired it.
Treasure Planet (2002)
· Directors: Ron Clements, John Musker
· Writers: Robert Louis Stevenson (based on the novel “Treasure Island”), Ron Clements (screenplay)
· Main actors: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emma Thompson, Martin Short
· IMDB rating: 7.1/10
The audience will to see a collision of the eighteenth century and the twenty-eighth century, of galleons and clipper ships rigged with solar sails and exotic aliens in the place of exotic natives. All that is there.
The movie’s story is substantially that of Stevenson’s classic tale of pirates and adventure on the seas, while its setting and visual storytelling language draws heavily on Lucas’s classic Star Wars series (particularly from The Phantom Menace).
“Treasure Planet” is an animated re-envisioning of this classic story in a sci-fi setting. An interesting mix of computer and hand drawn animation.
Time Bandits (1981)
· Director: Terry Gilliam
· Writers: Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam
· Main actors: Sean Connery, Shelley Duvall, John Cleese
· IMDB rating: 7.0/10
Gilliam’s idea was to explore all the “craziness of our awkwardly ordered society and the desire to escape it through whatever means possible.” And so, the film lets his imagination run riot, exploring the diversity of a large number of very different settings.
“Time Bandits“, illustrating the imaginings of children, represents the first film in what has become known as Gilliam’s Dreams Trilogy. Brazil, the middle chapter, depicts the dreams of a middle-aged individual; and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen does something similar for an old man.
With that being the case, the movie has a heavy use of steampunk elements, as it combines sci-fi with a dark fantasy tale and happens to be one of the most important films in the genre. “em>Time Bandits” is undoubtedly a classic and one of the major highlights from Gilliam’s career.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)
· Director: Guillermo del Toro
· Writers: Guillermo del Toro (screenplay), Guillermo del Toro (story)
· Main actors: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Doug Jones
· IMDB rating: 7.0/10
As hell on Earth is ready to erupt, Hellboy and his friends must venture into a strange, ancient kingdom to stop The Golden Army and Prince Nuada from destroying humanity.
The movie takes place in a world of gods and monsters, and some creations are startling, inventive, weird, grotesque, dangerous and as scary as they are fascinating. The creature design is extraordinary, an Art Deco masterpiece – particularly in the stunning Troll Market.
“Hellboy II: The Golden Army” overall tone is light and fantastical; it never becomes too oppressive or grim for fantasy-loving teens and adults. Plus, its visual imagination is stunning to behold. Besides, Del Toro does exceptionally well as a writer. He never lets the fantasy become the focus of the movie, instead he’s concentrating on characters and delivering action scenes that can only be described as kickass.
· Director: Katsuhiro Ôtomo (as Katsuhiro Ohtomo)
· Writers: Sadayuki Murai, Katsuhiro Ôtomo (as Katsuhiro Ohtomo)
· Main actors: Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart, Alfred Molina
· IMDB rating: 6.9/10
It’s the eve of the World Expo, a technological showcase. Ray Steam, living in London, is caught in a turmoil of danger when a mysterious package containing the enigmatic Steam Ball is sent to his house courtesy of his grandfather Lloyd.
Lloyd is desperate to keep the Steam Ball out of the hands of the O’Hara Foundation, a gigantic enterprise committed to innovative advance headed up by a baffling figure who’s associated with Ray in more ways than one. They need the Steam Ball to power a mechanical monster unlike anything the world has ever seen – and it’s up to Ray to stop them.
Like the name suggests, this animation movie is full of steam. The movie has intriguing ideas about human lives ruled by machines, which is why the technology in “SteamBoy” seems promising. Ôtomo has reportedly been working on the film for 10 years, drawing countless animation cells by hand and also using computer resources.
A Series Of Unfortunate Events (2011)
· Director: Brad Silberling
· Writers: Robert Gordon (screenplay), Daniel Handler (books) (as Lemony Snicket)
· Main actors: Jim Carrey, Jude Law, Meryl Streep
· IMDB rating: 6.8/10
This film is based on the first three books of “A Series Of Unfortunate Events“. I’m not a fan of the series but the first book, The Bad Beginning, is great. Like the books, the film is filled with dreadful events yet shows a little humor – enough to make you hope for a happy ending. But don’t get you’re hopes too high.
As the title suggests, this movie belongs to the grim but vital strain of children’s literature in which children suffer terribly, parents and adults have the same life expectancy as villains in action movies, and courage and ingenuity are all that keep kids alive.
The film features three winning child performances but is also visually stunning. The film also leaves us a thoughtful ending that no matter how unfortunate the children were, they are, in some degree, fortunate.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)
· Directors: Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise
· Writers: Tab Murphy (screenplay), Kirk Wise (story by)
· Main actors: Michael J. Fox, Jim Varney, Corey Burton

They travel through the Atlantic ocean, face a large lobster called the Leviathan, and finally get to Atlantis. But does the Atlantis crew have a lust for discovery, or something else?
“Atlantis: The Lost Empire” is a kids adventure movie with beautiful animation and a happy helping of wit and personality. While not among the great Disney classics, this is still a steampunk movie I would watch again, primarily for the beauty and energy of the animation itself.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010)
· Director: Luc Besson
· Writers: Luc Besson (screenplay), Jacques Tardi (comic books)
· Main actors: Louise Bourgoin, Mathieu Amalric, Gilles Lellouche
· IMDB rating: 6.3/10

Her hope is that Professor Espérandieu will then use his unusual powers to bring the doctor back to life so he, in turn, can use his skills on her unfortunate sister.
In Paris however Espérandieu is already causing chaos, having brought to life what was a safe museum egg but is now a very active pterodactyl. So Paris, in 1911, may not be the healthiest place to be.
With a charismatic performance from Louise Bourgoin and interesting special effects, “The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec” was well received by public and critics. It is a fun and curious experience that all kinds of audiences may enjoy.

The film races Lyra from one bit of jeopardy to the next, and she is usually bailed out by help that neither she nor we ever saw coming.
“The Golden Compass” takes place in a parallel universe where a dark company threatens to separate children from their real imaginary friends. And this world is loaded with machines, beautiful sets, and tons of steampunk gadgets to enjoy.
Van Helsing (2004)
· Director: Stephen Sommers
· Writer: Stephen Sommers
· Main actors: Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, Richard Roxburgh
· IMDB rating: 6.0/10
The turning point of the movie comprises of Dracula and Van Helsing beating up each other, except for this time Van Helsing is a werewolf. This sequence takes place during a full moon so he can do this transformation, but the moon frequently keeps going behind clouds, causing Van Helsing to take his human form during these periods. It works as a dramatic tool to make the fight interesting.
“Van Helsing” production design is entertaining and imaginative. The monsters are all re-imagined with a great deal of flair, particularly Frankenstein’s creation, one of the best of his many screen portrayals. The story pays homage to the classic monster legacy films in Universal’s vault, as well as many modern day adventures.
The Time Machine (2002)

The Morlocks evolved underground in the dark ages after the moon’s fall, and attack on the surface by popping up through dusty sinkholes. They hunt the Eloi for food. The Eloi are a race of brown-skinned people; their life is an idyll of leafy bowers, waterfalls and elegant forest structures, but they are such fatalists about the Morlocks that instead of fighting them off, they all but salt and pepper themselves.

And the League must stop them. The action moves later to the frozen lakes of Mongolia, where the enemy leader has constructed a gigantic factory palace to manufacture robot soldiers.
This movie features gorgeous scenes of techno-Steampunk. The Nautilus submarine is a stunning display of engineering, but no Steampunk sub is complete without gadgets galore, a six-wheeled automobile, and imaginative weaponry.
Wild Wild West (1999)
· Director: Barry Sonnenfeld
· Writers: Jim Thomas (story), John Thomas (story)
· Main actors: Will Smith, Kevin Kline, Kenneth Branagh

They stumble over a plot to assassinate Grant, by a narcissistic who wants to give half the country back to Britain and Spain, and keep the rest in the hands of the villain (Dr. Arliss Loveless).
“Wild Wild West” is a warning tale about boys and their toys and what happens when a big star, Will Smith, and a director, Barry Sonnenfeld, are given way too much money to play with. You can watch this movie for a closer look at 19th century fashion and find inspiration to create your own Victorian steampunk inspired clothes.
