The Girl With All The Gifts is a critically acclaimed 2014 novel, turned into a celebrated movie, which hits Australian theatres some time this year.

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.
