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 this ‘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.
Will Salas (Timberlake) is someone who doesn’t have a lot of time left and is on the brink of death.
However, after getting rewarded with over 100 years, he makes the most of his life and forms an alliance with a powerful man’s daughter (Seyfried) as they aim to bring down the rich and the corrupt.
The film was made on a budget of $40 million and ended up grossing a whopping $174 million.
Upon its release, In Time was met with mixed reviews, with most critics praising the concept and story, but being unimpressed with the writing.
Stephanie Zarcharek wrote in her review: “The movie doesn’t punish its characters for being young and beautiful.
“Instead, it revels in the sight of them, and that’s just one of the ways Niccol makes sure that his movie, despite its blunt message, never succumbs to preachiness.”
Despite it not receiving the ravest of reviews, fans are still commenting on the movie and insisting that In Time has predicted modern society.
Fans are also saying how the film correctly predicted the rise and importance of digital currency.
One person said: “Damn! This movie is a heavy message to society!!”
Another added: “This movie is criminally underrated.
“In Time has a really deep message to society. From economics to inequality in society, this movie represents everything perfectly.”
“This movie is more relevant now than ever, seriously underrated,” commented a third.
Someone else said: “And here we are with digital currency just around the corner.”
While a fifth fan added: “But what caught me in is the realistic portrayal of society, where the rich keep getting rich and the poor dies.
“Timely and relevant isn’t it?”
In Time is available to stream on Disney+ and is available to rent or buy on Amazon Prime.
