Syriana, a major Hollywood production staring George Clooney and Matt Damon, will come out in wide release on December 9. It deals with energy issues, and in it gas is $20 a gallon, 30% of Americans can't heat their homes, and world powers are fighting for the last remaining oil supplies in the middle east. Sounds like a decent prediction of what will happen as Peak Oil arrives. Here is an excerpt from a review:

[Syriana] even gives us a few worst-case projections on what could happen if America lost its oil supply. If I had to pick a favorite moment, it would be Damon's smart-ass monologue ("You want to know what the business world thinks of you? We think 100 years ago you were living out here in tents in the desert chopping each other's heads off, and that's exactly where you're going to be in another 100."
