Movies that were wrong about the future 1

Directed by David Hogan, Barb Wire envisions a world where the U.S. is embroiled in a second civil war in the year 2017. While the real world didn’t see a war break out that year, the intense divisive political atmosphere going into the 2016 election felt a little similar to the civil war featured in the movie.

Starring Pamela Anderson in the title role, the sci-fi action film centers on Barb Wire, a sexy nightclub owner who moonlights as a mercenary in one of the last free zones in the already fascist America. When scientist Cora Devonshire (Victoria Rowell) wanders into Barb’s establishment, she gets roped into a top-secret government plot involving biological weapons and gets reunited with her old lover Axel Hood (Temuera Morrison), who is now Cora’s husband and a guerrilla fighter.
