We're obliged to all those readers who took the time to throw over their nominations for the best sci-fi film never made, and we're delighted to report that we've whittled the contenders down to a final 50.

We simply waded through all your emails and comments and picked those titles which had received the most support. On Thursday, you'll get the chance to vote for the definitive pick in our online poll, but in the meantime we'd like to salute the numerous other works which received multiple votes, but didn't make the cut.

There's some good stuff here in the reject pile, so we'll leave it to you lot to ponder just which 50 sci-fi classics will vie for pole position later this week ...
