6/21/2002 Minority Report is released
June 21, 2002. On this date Hollywood made a big step forward in its effort to film everything Phillip K. Dick ever wrote when they released Minority Report. Tom Cruise played a cop in a future in which computer-wired people can predict who will commit a crime. HIs job is to arrest them in advance. Scary stuff.
