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.

It doesn't get much better than David Cronenberg's The Fly, the 1986 remake of the sci-fi classic. That's a film that works in so many ways, it's silly to think anyone could do better. But if you had to try, a filmmaker who just made a movie about magic would be a good place to start.
