This ongoing series explores the surprising connections between the movies and real-life science—with experts on hand at each screening to explain it all.

Q&As are moderated by Robert Lee Hotz, the senior science writer for The Wall Street Journal, a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, a Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University, and president of the Alicia Patterson Foundation. Hotz is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He shared the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Reporting.
