“The first rule is: Never sleep with anyone who’s crazier than you are. I don’t know if you’re crazier, but you’re right up there on the top 10 of my weird list, lady.”
Directed by Michael Anderson (Logan’s Run), 1989’s Millennium is based on the 1977 short story “Air Raid” by John Varley, who also wrote the screenplay. The film concerns of a group of time travelers from a post-apocalyptic future who travel back in time to steal passengers from doom aircraft. You see, in the future, the human population has been decimated. Because of pollution and other environmental factors, humans are no longer able to reproduce. To combat extinction, teams are sent back in time to abduct people who are about to die in plane crashes and keep them in stasis until they can be sent into the future to repopulate Earth.
