The 25 Dumbest Predictions Movies Made About the Future

8. Double Dragon (1994)

Set In Year: 2007
Prediction(s): An earthquake forces Los Angeles to rename itself once again—now New Angeles—and crime runs amok (particularly after dark).

This video game adaptation follows the typical shot-in-the-'90s/set-in-the-future formula: The world is in a sad state and run by criminal types at every level. In this case, they're all in search of a magical medallion, which imbues its wearers with spectacular powers (and even more spectacular coordinated outfits). Thankfully, 2007 came and went without any of this happening.
