Movies that were wrong about the future

Several movies of the past years offered optimistic and dire predictions about the future. And now that the “futures” featured in those films have come and gone in real life, it had been revealed that some of those flicks actually got their projections right, while others were just dead wrong about the then-future of the world. Below are 35 movies that predicted the future but got it all wrong.

Geostorm (2017)

Movies that were wrong about the future 1

In Geostorm’s version of 2019, climate change has become so bad that Earth ended up relying on a global system of weather-altering satellites to keep the planet habitable. But when the network of satellites malfunctions and starts attacking Earth, its creator must uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.

While climate change remains a grave threat to Earth at present, it’s not as serious as it was depicted in the Dean Devlin-directed movie.
