The Mayans predicted that the world would end on June 21st, 2012 (later changed to December 21st, 2012) which didn’t happen. But historians and experts have warned that some of Nostradamus’ apocalyptic predictions such as plagues were very common during his time.
A lot of social media users have taken to Twitter to share their reactions to the apocalyptic theories going on the internet. Source: AMC By Gina Vaynshteyn If you love reading about eerie predictions and the end of the world, you've come to the right place.
Apparently French astrologer Michel de Nostradamus predicted a zombie apocalypse for 2021, because at this point, why not? However, it's important to note that his prophecies are in poetry form, and are often times vague.
He also allegedly threw in a famine and a couple of asteroids smashing into earth. Some believe he predicted COVID-19 when he wrote, “There will be a twin year from which will arise a queen who will come from the east and who will spread a plague in the darkness of night, on a country with 7 hills and will transform the twilight of men into dust, to destroy and ruin the world.
Plus, experts aren't exactly alarmed by Nostradamus's apocalyptic prophecies anyway, especially with the mention of plagues. The French astrologer, whose real name was Michel de Nostredame, made a series of predictions in his book Les Prophecies in 1555.
Nostradamus wrote 100 years before the Great Fire: “The blood of the just will commit a fault at London, Burnt through lightning of twenty threes the six: As such, over the course of hundreds of years, at least a few are bound to come into fruition with the meaning of the philosophers’ words interpreted differently after the event took place.
This is one of the greatest fears of humanity, inspired by a bulk of Hollywood movies, and scientists do believe a zombie outbreak could happen. While it would be impossible to believe the dead would rise and feed on the living, experts do think that a parasite could affect the brain or a virus could evolve.
Already it is believed half of humans around the world have a dormant version of the parasite on their brains in the form of harmless cysts. Wendy Ingham, who was involved in the study, said the team tested the parasite on mice which were ultimately unfazed by the presence of a predator once infected.
Like “Old Guard,” “Outside the Wire” looks like a dusty military thriller on the surface, but under the hood it’s packing an android army captain as the star (Anthony Mackie, aka Falcon from “The Avengers”), a strike force of robotic soldiers and a requisite doomsday device that will almost certainly end up in the wrong hands if our heroes can't save the day. LARRY HERRICK/NETFLIX A 2021Â /LARRY HERRICK/NETFLIX A 2021Â Everyone loves movies about archaeologists, and although you shouldn’t expect any bullwhip-wielding heroes with a fear of snakes, “The Dig” will scratch an itch for those looking for a new film about buried historical treasures.
There’s an element of Oscar bait here for sure: It’s based on the true story of the excavation of, stars Ralph Fences, takes place in Britain and has a foreboding backdrop of World War II, but it still looks to pack the free-wheeling sense of adventure that fuels the best films in the genre. Even if a romantic drama isn’t typically the type of movie that ends up in your queue, the unique production backstory alone will make this a compelling watch.
“Thunder Force” is yet another genre-bending take on what happens when normal people gain unnatural abilities, this time imbued with Melissa McCarthy’s signature style of slapstick comedy. Stine is best known for his “Goosebumps” books, but in addition to preteen stories of living ventriloquist dummies and abominable snowmen, he also wrote a slightly-scarier series of novels called “Fear Street.” This certainly falls into the realms of guilty pleasure, but fans of teen slashers like “Scream” should definitely put this on their radar.
Clay Enos / Netflix Zack Snyder’s name has been plastered all over the internet thanks to his forthcoming director’s cut of “Justice League,” but the other project he’s on track to release in 2021 looks to be much more promising (and hopefully will leave Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” alone). Dave Bautista (Draw from “Guardians of the Galaxy”) leads the squad, alongside Ella Parnell (“Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children”) and comedian TIG Notary.

Evan Agostini/Associated Press Revered author George Saunders has had a few of his stories optioned over the years (“Lincoln in the Bard,” “CivilWarLand in Bad Decline”), but it looks like Escape From Spider head from the collection “Tenth of December” will be the first to actually make it to the screen.
Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”) and June Smollett (“Lovecraft Country”) will star, with Joseph Kaminski directing (“Top Gun: Maverick,” “TRON: Legacy”). Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Timothy Chalamet, Ariana Grande and many more drive this political satire about a pair of low-level astronomers who head out on a media tour to convince the public about a deadly comet on a collision course with Earth.

If you’ve unlocked new Black Ops Cold War weapons via the Battle Pass system, bring them into the fight through your starting loadout and upgrade them along the way. If you’re looking for a bit more urgency to stay alive in “Die Machine,” outside of being overwhelmed by waves of zombies, give Cranked a try.
Black Ops Cold War Zombies is set to take veterans and newcomers alike on a bold and terrifying journey that expands on an iconic part of the Call of Duty® franchise. This co-op mode includes new ways to progress, classic Perks and an arsenal of Cold War-era Zombies weaponry that will help survivors dominate the legions of undead.
It appears to be the consensus among fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that this year’s Zombies mode changes things for the better. Today, Trey arch teased the next map to come to Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode, and it’s already shrouded in layers of mystery.
It can also be assumed that Gregory Weaver, the head of the Strike Team from the first map, discovered this through Samantha Maxis once again. Whatever this map is, it also includes yet another portal chamber, which likely means we’ll be returning to the Dark Ether once again to complete the upcoming Easter egg.
If it’s anything like Die Machine though, it’s bound to be good (as long as it doesn’t feature another large and powerful green man). Chances are they won’t be dropping the map until the release of Black Ops Cold War Season Two, something that’s still a month and a half away.
Despite all of this gaming has thrived, providing much-needed solace to many people feeling out of sorts because of the rubbish year many of us have had. (Image credit: FromSoftware) Elder Ring is one of, if not the most, anticipated PC game on this list.
