Movies that Kinda Sorta Actually Predicted the Future!
Would you believe that the movies predicted baseball on Halloween, the arrival of a brand new Star Trek series, that shoes would be used in an attack on a US President, that Martin Sheen would become President and the Hurricane Katrina?
Some movies kinda sorta actually predicted future events. Just like with Nostradamus, you have to have a willingness to read the predictions in a sort of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey elasticized way, but if you are willing to accept that Nostradamus predicted Hitler then surely you would be willing to accept that the 1944 comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace" predicted 9/11 when it featured a radio broadcast of something that had never occurred before: a World Series game being played on Halloween.
Stand By Me Predicts Star Trek: The Next Generation
The 1986 film "Stand by Me" exhibits a little Nostradamus ability with its really quite bizarrely almost-on-the-mark prediction of a brand new Star Trek series. The very idea of creating a whole new cast of characters for adventures on the Starship Enterprise was so ludicrous as to be ridiculous. And yet "Stand by Me" presented movie audiences with a character named Gordie LaChance. Played by actor Wil Wheaton. The very same Wil Wheaton who would be cast in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in which another character would be named Geordi La Forge.
Austin Powers Predicts Shoes Will be Thrown at Pres. Bush
In the film "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" an Asian assassin throws a shoe at the British spy. The scene is intended to provoke comedy as a result of looking back. The Asian assassin is a homage to Oddjob, the guy who uses a hat as a weapon in the James Bond franchise. Instead of a hat, however, this assassin uses a shoe to which Austin replies, "Who throws a shoe? Honestly!" Clearly, "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" was trying to tell us that it was predicting that one day an assassin would throw a shoe at a man of mystery. The man was George W. Bush. The mystery was how a failed oilman with a serious drinking problem and even more serious intellectual problem could become President for eight years. The man throwing the shoes at Bush wasn't Asian, but an Iraqi journalist which, as far as most Bush supporters go, is pretty much the same thing.
The Dead Zone Predicts The West Wing
"The Dead Zone" is not just one of only two or three Stephen King stories with a satisfying ending, it also predicted the arrival of the hit TV show "The West Wing." In "The Dead Zone" actor Martin Sheen plays a crazed politician with a thirst for the White House and a hunger for annihilation of his enemies. In a way, "The Dead Zone" also sorta predicted the appointment of George W. Bush to the Presidency, except that Sheen's crazed politician gets assassination before the vision of the future by the guy Christopher Walken plays (such beautiful symmetry here, yes?) comes to pass. It is the scene where Sheen's character kind of loses it and loudly predicts his own future for himself as President that is the location of Nostradamus in "The Dead Zone." Because, a few decades later, Martin Sheen would become President Bartlett in "The West Wing."
