According to the films of the past, 2022 is going to be another apocalyptic year with alien invasion, zombies, vampires, and time travel. Filmmakers often dream of destruction instead of a future with rainbows and sunshine. Here are ten Hollywood movies’ scariest 2022 predictions.
A 2017 film which shows that all the satellites can control the weather on earth, and one day all of them go haywire and starts plummeting towards the ground. Hence the lead scientist figures out a way to stop this blunder. However, this can never happen in reality as the weather isn’t controllable by man-made satellites, yet!
9. Soylent Green
A 1973 movie that tackles the issue of overpopulation. We’ve started to face this fundamental problem in the last several decades. In the movie, people are given a green cracker-like substance to sustain health, which turns about to be made from dead humans. This can’t happen but meatless meat is already a thing.
8. Alien Intruder
This movie shows how a VR program designed to help the men on the mission turns around and becomes harmful to the same men. One program decides to kill all the other VR programs and starts controlling men by seducing them to kill each other in real life. As AI grows in these years, this movie shows how quickly things can turn ugly.
7. The Purge
In the film, a 12-hour period called “The Purge” comes every year where all the crimes are legal for 24 hours. As a result of the movie, the US saw a 3% rise in property crime rates. This is one of the creepiest 2022 predictions if it ever comes true.
6. No Escape
It shows an ex-marine sent to a corporate-run jail for killing his commander. The story’s reality hits when you look at the reports taken from the USA, whose private prison systems house more than 115,000 inmates, as of 2019. This is a pretty accurate 2022 prediction.
5. Among the Shadows
The movie revolves around finding a murderer of a high-level politician secretly by vampires and werewolves. There are about 5,000 cracks who identify themselves as vampires. And a real-life werewolf was supposedly seen in Nigeria, so who’s to say what will happen in 2022.
4. Justice League War: Apokolips War
We certainly don’t want the earth to end the way it happened in Avengers Endgame, which is the inspiration for this movie. After the “Big Band”, which destroyed the planet, the remaining superheroes set on a journey to make things the way it was. These movies suggest that the world might come to a devastating end.
3. Time Runner
A movie that shows how time travel could work. The film’s protagonist travels back in time and shows us how one can experience time at different rates than the regular one. This leads us to the possibility of time travel in the future.
2. The Dark Side of the Moon
A space movie where a voyager gets off track and ends up on the dark side of the moon, where the malevolent devil himself rules over. However, in 2019, this bubble burst when the Chinese capsule landed on the dark side of the moon, the first country to do that. They didn’t discover any devil, though!
1. Safer At Home
Inspired from the movie “Host,” which shows multiple “Zoom” screens showing the time during the pandemic. It lacks everything making it the worst movie on the list, but it portrays the reality precisely the way it is. It’s one of 2022 predictions that could come true(omicron).
