What The Year 2018 Should Look Like, According To Science Fiction

Between false alarms of nuclear bombings, the outing of predators, and a president who uses Twitter to address the country, 2018 already feels like a dystopian future to many. Movies about the future did not prepare us for this type of world. According to movies set in 2018, we should be living in a desert wasteland, fighting each other to the death, and fending off an alien invasion in Europe. In a twisted way, 2018 according to science fiction helps alleviate some of the anxiety that accompanies living in actual 2018. Some of the things that works of science fiction predicted – such as a second civil war – are much more horrifying than the reality in which we live.

Some of the greatest science fiction films may not accurately predict the future, but they do serve as an advisory on how society can progress if certain elements are left unchecked. Plenty of predictions sci-fi has made in the past have not come to pass, and hopefully in the next year, none of these (with the exception of curing AIDS and cancer) will come to fruition, either.
