Minority Report is a 2002 American neo-noir science fiction film directed by Steven Spielberg and loosely based on the short story 'The Minority Report' by Philip K. Dick. It is set primarily in Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia in the year 2054, where 'PreCrime', a specialized police department, apprehends criminals based on foreknowledge provided by three psychics called 'precogs'. The cast includes Tom Cruise as PreCrime captain John Anderton, Colin Farrell as Department of Justice agent Danny Witwer, Samantha Morton as the senior precog Agatha, and Max von Sydow as Anderton's superior Lamar Burgess. The film is a combination of whodunit, thriller and science fiction. Spielberg has characterized the story as ''fifty percent character and fifty percent very complicated...'
