The year is 1939 and the city is New York.  Gotham has just experienced a wave of robot attacks, and prominent scientists across the globe are disappearing under mysterious circumstances.  Dr. Walter Jennings (Trevor Baxter) fears that he will be killed next, and arranges a clandestine meeting with news reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow).

After the meeting Polly contacts Joe Sullivan (Jude Law), a fighter pilot and an ex-boyfriend who's had numerous face-offs with the robots.  Jennings' information leads Polly and Joe to suspect the involvement of Dr. Totenkopf (Laurence Olivier), a mad scientist who disappeared 30 years prior.

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrowwas nominated for an MTV Movie Award.
