"2020 movies predictions, what did they predict?"

COMBAT ROBOTS and colonization of Mars are just some of the predictions made by the films for 2020. 

 

The year 2020 arrived surrounded by expectation. Many years ago, people believed that the arrival of this year would represent many technological advances for humanity. But what did the sci-fi movies predict that didn't happen?

An example would be Brian de Palma's "Mission: Mars" movie. In the movie, astronauts living on Mars mysteriously disappear, and a second group is sent to find out what happened. The fact here is that missions with people to Mars should only take place in the coming years, but not in 2020.

Another movie is "Steel Giants" which shows a future in which boxers have been replaced by robots. The year the movie takes place? 2020

 

It's true that there were some impressive advances in robots, but unfortunately, the closest attempt to bring combat robots into reality was made by the company MegaBots. However, the company closed in 2019.

 

Let us wait and see what the year 2020 has yet to reveal, but combat robots and colonization of Mars, not even close to happening.
