Ben Affleck Can Predict the Future

No, not with this acting career but with how we view movies and listen to music.

Head back to 2003:

Ben Affleck starred in Gigli and the Daredevil origin story and also co-produced The Battle of Shaker Heights with pal Matt Damon.

But those aren’t what’s impressive (far from) about that year.  During a press junket for the co-produced film, Affleck seemed to have predicted the rise of TV, movie and music streaming services like Netflix and Spotify.

Ben said that the technology would be there within five years… so 2008.  Netflix began streaming content in 2007 and Spotify was right behind in 2008.

Not bad Affleck, not bad.
