First of all I want to apologize for the lack of updates on the contest. I've been busy for the start of college classes, but as soon as I have some free time I'll get the thing moving.

This blog contains a list of adaptations of Asimov's works. Here you can discuss them and suggest adaptations I might have missed.
Thanks to member seabird for suggesting this discussion. :)

Cinematographic adaptations:

I, Robot (2004) - Trailer
Loosely inspired by Asimov's robot stories. In the year 2035 a techno-phobic cop investigates a crime that may have been perpetrated by a robot, which leads to a larger threat to humanity.

Bicentennial Man (1999) - Trailer
Based on the novel The Positronic Man and on the short story The Bicentennial Man, the movie tells the story of Andrew, an android that endeavors to become human as he gradually acquires emotions.

Nightfall (1988) -  Trailer
The people of the planet Aeon, blessed with six suns, have never experienced night. When an archeological excavation uncovers evidence of an ancient catastrophe, all signs point towards the impending darkness of the very first Nightfall. Panic erupts as the suns slowly disappear one by one. Science struggles agains superstition as the people race to comprehend the approaching Nightfall... the end of the world as they know it.

Fantastic Voyage (1966) - Trailer
A diplomat is nearly assassinated. In order to save him, a submarine is shrunken to microscopic size and injected into his blood stream with a small crew. Problems arise almost as soon as they enter the bloodstream.
Unlike the others, this one is not an adaptation from Asimov's novel, but contrariwise the novel is an adaptation of the movie.

I, Robot: The Illustrated Screenplay by Harlan Ellison (1987) - Some Info Art by Mark Zug
An unfilmed screenplay based on the full text of several of the stories in Asimov's collection.

TV Adaptations:

Little Lost Robot (1962) - Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

The Caves of Steel (1964) - Clip

Satisfaction Guaranteed (1966) - Clip

Isaac Asimov's Robots (VCR Mistery Game) (1988) -  Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6
A VCR game based off the Robot Series:
"Elijah Bailey, the greatest detective of the 23rd century, is faced with his toughest assignment ever... and he needs your help. For the first time in 100 years, someone has attempted a murder. With the advent of the Robot, crime has virtually disappeared. Yet a murder attempt has been made, and it may happen again. Who did it? Was it an Earthling, a Spacer, or the unthinkable... a Robot?"

Thank you for requesting my picture, I really appreciate it :)
I didn't know this group existed, can everybody join?
P-JoArt Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014
Of course, feel free to join, the more the better! ;) The most important rule is that submissions must be Asimov-related and not general sci-fi. :) We accept also some art that is not directly related to Asimov but is clearly inspired by his vision and works.
Minuya Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014
Ohh ok, I love Asimov's work, though I haven't drawn any scenes from his novels yet. I think I'm on the second part; some of my work is clearly inspired by his... So I guess I'll join, at least to watch some other related artwork.
Thank you :) take care!

Who has read Galactic series novels? What is your opinion of them?
P-JoArt Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
If you mean the Galactic Empire series, I read it... quite a lot of time ago. :P I actually don't remember much of them, also because they are good books but somehow a bit forgettable comparing to the other Asimov's sci-fi series. In my opinion, of course. It's not really necessary to read them, but if you are curious about what the Galatic Empire looked before Hari Seldon and the events in the Foundation Series, it's still a nice tie-up. Just a curiosity, since you asked... I don't really remember why, but when I read them I was under the impression that they looked more like fantasy novels settled in the future, rather than a real sci-fi novel. But it's been a long time and I'm not sure, I may be mistaken.

Did you read them? What do you think?
carusmm Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I thought that they were true scifi, but generally not overly brilliant.
carusmm Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I read "I, Robot."
