Wouldn’t it be fun to know what comes next? Sure, it would take some of the surprise out of life, but think of all the failures you could avoid: dating people you wish you never met at the end of the relationship, horrible investments that costed you a fortune, soups of the day you wish you’d never tried among other things. Many of us would have made different decisions if we knew the outcome ahead of time, and unfortunately in some cases a wrong decision will haunt us for the rest of our lives. Still, we ask the question: Can we predict the future with any real accuracy? According to science the answer is no, and in most cases predictions about what to expect decades from now will fail miserably, but of course that‘s not a reason to stop making them. This is where the following films come in. Though more than likely the following films didn’t intentionally seek out to predict the exact events of the future, they undoubtedly illustrated something that didn’t come into reality until years later. You can almost say that these movies where somewhat prophetic without even trying to be with prophecies that include the 9/11 tragedy, medical technology, and even military technology.
To be fair, you could argue that some of these “prophecies” were more like self-fulfilling prophecies, inspiring visionaries to actually bring the illustrated fantasy to reality. You can even argue that the depicted events would eventually happen due to the natural progression of technological advancements. You would probably be correct. Nevertheless, this doesn’t take away from the incredible futuristic insight these films possessed and it’s fun to look back and realize their surprising portrayals. But enough bantering, take a look at these 25 movies that predicted the future with creepy accuracy. And if prophecies are your thing, you might want to also check out these 25 incredible predictions that actually came true.
