Through reproducing, representing, and recreating the real world, science fiction films create a fascinating picture of a possible future for human beings. People's enthusiasm for science fiction films demonstrates their constant self-reflection and desire for a brighter future. Currently, the enthusiasm for such films among people in China and the international market continues to grow. According to a survey, 45% of young Chinese audiences have high expectations for science fiction films, which have consistently topped the box office charts. The practitioners concerned enjoy the opportunity, however, they are still faced with challenges as the audience continuously hopes to see better works. Moreover, for a science fiction movie, the construction of the worldview serves as a more important foundation than the script or plot. The establishment of a comprehensive and captivating worldview is a crucial step toward the success of a science fiction film. But it is more difficult to build a new world in a science fiction film than to replicate the real world. The paper aims to explain the connotation of worldview and its key elements in science fiction films. Additionally, it will analyze how the worldview conveyed by science fiction films establishes a connection with the audience. In addition, it provides relevant theoretical guidance for the creation of science fiction films.
