The movie Minority Report was supposed to take place in 2054, but it seems that we’re reaching the future ahead of schedule. In the 10 years since the sci-fi film was released, several of the “futuristic” technologies have come to fruition or seem within reach, like 3-D holograms, predictive policing, bug-like robots, and a gestural computer interface system that’s like an iPad in open air. These advances have made the film’s discussion of free will, government regulation and use of technology, and other issues more relevant than ever.

That's why Slate, the New America Foundation, and Arizona State University will host a Future Tense screening of Minority Report at Washington, D.C.’s Landmark E Street Theater at 555 11th Street NW, on Monday, Aug. 6, at 6:30 p.m.

We won't just watch the movie. Our host Tom Kalil of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy will introduce the film, and when it’s over, he’ll share a few thoughts on how we can embrace cutting-edge technology without falling prey to Minority Report’s darker visions. RSVP, future plans )
