So how was the movie? According to the still, it looks like they're predicting a revival of bomber jackets and Britney Spears-type tresses as fashionable street wear 20 year hence.

I don't think anyone can ever really get future-fashions correct - too unpredictable. Like in the 30s where they has us all in jumpsuits or capes. They never saw leisure suits or skanky tattoos coming...

If they were smart, they'd just have everybody walking around naked.

On the other hand, that would raise other questions: will body implants/augmentations decrease, increase, or stay the same? (Star Trek seems to have taken the position that implants/augmentation will continue.) What's the future of tattoos (if any)? Will we get holographic tattoos? (A 3-D skull portruding from your arm.)

Did anyone see John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars (2001)? The creatures in that were severely self-mutiliated and tattooed. I predict someday people will look back on that film and say: "Wow, they were dead-on in terms of fashion! Everything else in the movie was innacurate, but the fashions were prophetic."
