Movies that were wrong about the future 1

Set in 2019, Blade Runner imagines a version of Earth where flying cars and human-like robots called replicants exist. While the Ridley Scott-directed movie is considered as one of the best films ever made, its 2019 predictions were way off base, as flying cars and robots as advanced as those depicted in the movie have yet to become a reality in real life.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, the Oscar-nominated film follows Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a blade runner who is tasked to pursue and terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
