Infographic: Films of the Future Part 2: Predictions

5 June 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives ..." — Criswell, "Plan 9 From Outer Space" (1959)

Some (actually quite a few) sci-fi films are more than just pieces of escapist entertainment. Some of them are freakin' prophets, don'tcha know, making predictions about what life will be like once we reach the year in which the particular film takes place.

Okay, it doesn't always work: when we reach 2015 in a couple of years, it's probably safe to say that there won't be the flying cars of "Back to the Future Part II." But who's to say our 2019 won't involve a Los Angeles that looks like New York City with a lot of Atari logos (as depicted in "Blade Runner") or that our 805,971 won't involve, uh, Guy Pearce (as depicted in "The Time Machine")?

Behold the (possible) future(s »
