People are saying that an underrated film from 2011 has perfectly predicted the world today.

There have been countless movies over the years that viewers claim have predicted real-world events.

Fans believe that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s classic The Running Man correctly predicted people’s fascination with brutal competition shows.

While others reckon that The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey, predicted that people love programmes focused on people’s lives, similar to The Kardashians and Big Brother.

However, there is one film in particular that people are saying has perfectly predicted society today.

Watch the trailer for the ‘underrated’ movie below…

In Time is a 2011 movie with an all-star cast, including Justin Timberlake, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde, and Amanda Seyfried.

The unique plot of the movie, which was written and directed by Andrew Niccol, revolves around time being a currency and people stopping ageing after 25, meaning that the rich live for long, while the poor die young.
