I'm trying to identify fonts used in Sci-Fi movies, especially ones from the late 60's, 70's and 80's.
Kubrick loved the Futura and Eurostile families (HAL's display is Eurostile Bold Extended).
Westminster or Data 70 were used in Rollerball (not the remake, children) and Westworld.
OCR-A and especially OCR-B are frequently seen on computer monitors.
OCR-F was used on almost all the Terminator heads up displays in Imaginary Forces, I'm not sure about the earlier films.
If you know any, please post. If you have links to the default font sets of old computers, post. If you have links to articles discussing Sci-Fi movie fonts, please post. Thanks!

I believe either some version of OSX or Adobe InDesign CS3 had a Bladerunner font. Two varieties, actually. A solid one and one with a transparent horizontal line running through it. I always wanted to use it in an ad but never did find a use for it. The same could be said of Deftone Stylus, though. The font was just too distinct for me to ever find a place for it in any of my ads.
