How many movies can we name that take place in the far of future, where the date has come and gone.

I'll start. Get some of the obvious ones out of the way.

1.  2001: A space odyssey
2.  2010: The year we made contact
3. 1984

DRACULA AD 1972 was dated the next year. So it wasn't the far flung future.
If you ask me, with all the hippie/mod clothes, it would have been dated in 1969.

That's the timeless scream queen Caroline Munro to the left!

Only a few more years before The Terminator joins this list. Starting to think robots might do a better job of things.

In Terminator 2, Judgement Day was supposed to happen in 1997.

Escape from New York was also 1997. 
So was Predator 2. 

I have no clue what it was about that year that caught people's attention.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
