We trusted you, Harry Potter!
This year is turning out to be a huge year for many fan bases, as several films were actually set in 2017.
So what kooky inventions or developments were we supposed to get in the next 12 months, if the movie industry could have its way? Here are five things that happened in 2017, according to hit films.
3. Criminals take part in a gladiator-style survival reality show
According to the 1987 film The Running Man, American society would this year have become a totalitarian police state that censors all cultural activity. The only culture that exists is a government-broadcast game show, “The Running Man”, in which convicted criminals attempt to evade armed mercenaries within a large arena.
A combination between “Survivor” and Korean variety show “Running Man”? It’s 2017, why are we not seeing this? (Sans all the blood and death, of course.)
