Sylvester Stallone’s 90s movie Demolition Man featured a star-studded cast and was a huge hit with viewers at the time.
And the 1993 sci-fi film has taken on a new lease of life in recent years as eager fans re-watching the epic are convinced it predicted the future.
Viewers have noticed a whole host of eerie similarities between the futuristic pacifist utopia San Angeles – formerly Los Angeles – and the 2020s.
The action movie sees John Spartan (Sylvester) and crime lord Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) sentenced to frozen incarceration known as ‘CryoPrison’ in 1996.
But 36 years later in 2032, Phoenix is revived on parole and goes on a killing spree, with Spartan then teaming up with police officer Lenina (Sandra Bullock) to catch him.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed a disease spreading in San Angeles bears more than one similarity to the Covid-19 pandemic, while its tech advancements were also very accurate.
