Think the future looks bleak? Well reality’s got nothing on the dystopian wasteland of killer robots, natural disasters and total, balls-out anarchy envisioned by Hollywood. For an overview of what the world would be like if filmmakers ran the universe, peep this timeline, created by cartoonist Dan Meth, that lays out the years in which a bunch of futuristic films were supposed to take place. Escape From New York (1997) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (uh, 2001) are already in our rearview, while in the next decade we can expect Kevin Costner to unite the fragments of humanity (The Postman, 2013) and a cyborg police officer to crack down on crime (Robocop, 2015). Sadly, a Harley-riding porn star president (Idiocracy, 2505) will have to wait.
