What we can expect in 2015 if we believe futuristic movies

THE year is now 2015.

Things haven't changed all that much in recent modern history - except in the space of 20 years we did somehow go from really high waisted jeans, to super low cut jeans, to jeans so high that they practically double as one-pieces.

However, if you were to step back in time and see what some movies have got to say about 2015 you might find a vastly different world to the one you're in now.

No, don't do it, that's a priceless antique!

Going by 2000's The 6th Day, we can expect that cloning of animals and humans organs will be the norm this year.

And although cloning humans will be against the law, evil bad guys will start cloning your dogs and husbands and start replacing them in your home.

But in the end, we're told clones and non-clones will find a way to coexist and there might even be a few cloned cats passed around as goodwill gestures. Aww.

According to Back to the Future Part 2, some cars will look really spacey, and others will hover and fly over cities.

3D hologram ads will also be introduced.

The fashion world is also set for a revamp with bright colours in what can only be described as a mix of '50s and '80s trends.

Good news however for people still stuck with analogue TV sets - they'll start to be sold for good money in antiques stores.

The 1995 film Memory Run predicts we will see immortality finally mastered this year.

However, it'll be limited to a select few. Bummer.

On a less science-y level, 2010 film Shank tells us we can expect society to dissolve, gangs to take over and the economy to be in a state of anarchy.

Hopefully, Hollywood is wrong on all counts - except for analogue tellies increasing in value, of course.
