* ''Film/BarryLyndon'': Whenever the Prussian Army is on screen, the background music is the Hohenfreidberger March; the film is set during the Seven Years War of 1756-63 (known as the French and Indian War in the US), but the march was not written until 1866, to commemorate the victory of Prussia over Austria in the Austro-Prussian War; interestingly, it is the march most frequently played during parade scenes in films set in Nazi Germany; in fact it was never played by the Nazis; Hitler, an Austrian national by birth, hated the march and banned it.

** Given the setting is "Another Time, Another Place", it's not really anachronistic.

** With regards to Spaniard, they speak English throughout the film, so... Hispania was the Roman name for the Iberian peninsula from the time of the Republic. It seems pretty clear they are just referring to him as being from this area. It is Maximus who is a composite of Narcissus, Spartacus, Cincinnatus, and Marcus Nonius Macrinus, not Marcus Aurelius.

* 2011's ''Film/RedRidingHood'' takes place in what appears to be Europe in the Middle Ages, yet features modern hair styles that would require a trip to Ulta to maintain, and American accents before there was an America.
** Actually, linguists currently believe that medieval British accents sounded much closer to modern American accents then they did modern British accents, [[AccidentallyAccurate but there's no reason to suspect the filmmakers knew that]]

* ''Film/TheBigShort'': One of the outdoor scenes shows billboards with ads clearly from after the Recession, such as a modern-looking YouTube ad and an ad for {{Series/Stitchers}}, which premiered in 2015.

* In ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', there's a scene where Riley gives cookies to her family as a toddler (which takes place in 2006 or 2007 given her age) and mutters "I'm gonna be Rapunzel!" while doing so. The Disney version of the story, ''WesternAnimation/{{Tangled}}'', has baking as one of Rapunzel's favorite hobbies, but that version of the story did not come out until 2010.

* The costumes, accessories, and weapons carried by various characters in ''WesternAnimation/KuboAndTheTwoStrings'' date to anywhere between the Heian and Edo eras, an eight-hundred-year spread. Possibly justified in that Kubo's mother, grandfather, and aunts are supernatural beings.
