Abstract

This article examines three works of Science Fiction, each one relevant for the time period in which they were created and also of their timeless character: Metropolis (1927), of Fritz Lang, Matrix (1999), of Lily e Lana Wachowski, and Arrival (2016), of Denis Villeneuve. The goal is to analyze their main characters, through the ideas of Chatman and The Hero´s Journey of Campbell (1988), and establish a parallelism between the characters in the three films. For this purpose, the narratology method is utilized.

Key words: Media, Society, Cinema, Science Fiction, Future.
