Movies that were wrong about the future 1

The Island envisioned a world where mankind has perfected human cloning. Set in 2019, the Michael Bay-directed movie follows Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) as he struggles to fit into the highly structured world in which he lives. Isolated in a compound with a few others, Lincoln later finds out that he and his fellow inhabitants are all clones used for organ harvesting and surrogates for wealthy people in the outside world. After dark secret is revealed, Lincoln attempts to escape with Jordan Two Delta (Scarlett Johansson) and expose the illegal cloning movement.

Although human cloning is believed to be theoretically possible, there have been really few studies about it, as around 70 countries in the real world had already banned it primarily due to ethical reasons.
