Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

There are a few reasons why Split is the perfect title for the new M. Night Shyamalan movie. The most obvious one is the fact it's about a man with multiple split personalities who kidnaps three young girls.

It also has a killer cast; James McAvoy alone gets to play 24 different characters.
