Movies that were wrong about the future 1

Written by brothers Jim and John Thomas, Predator 2 predicted that by the year 1997, Los Angeles would be completely consumed by a three-way war between a Colombian drug cartel, a Jamaican drug cartel, and the police. In the Stephen Hawkins-directed movie, the fight between the two gangs is so dreadful that the titular alien is able to operate in the city unnoticeably for a long period of time.

While there are a few drug cartels believed to be operating in Los Angeles at the present time, the city is definitely not beset by Columbian and Jamaican cartels.
