The future according to films

T-800_TERMINATOR_SSU80308.jpg

Right now, no one knows what will happen in the future. Not even that friend of a friend of a friend who claims to be "a little bit psychic".

So we feel no embarrassment for turning to the movie world for some insight. After all, we've picked up a great deal of sage advice from films in the past.

This pretty exhaustive infographic details every key event in the future, as predicted by movies. It's a fairly grim future, full of natural disaster, infertility, evil robots and talking kangaroos. Let's just take some sort of solace in the long-lasting hope that the hoverboard will soon turn into a reality.

Thanks to Tremulant Design for this.
