* Another New York City setting, [[Sully]] is set in 2009. The filmmakers were careful to only show shots of midtown Manhattan, as any downtown shots would show the new World Trade Center tower (completed in 2013). However several midtown skyscrapers that did not exist at the time are present, including 432 Park Avenue (completed in 2015, construction started 2012).

* 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.

* ''Film/TenThousandBC'' is one of the most blatant examples, featuring, among other things, woolly mammoths, saber tooth tigers, metalworking (developed in 5500 BC), domestication of horses (first done in 4000 BC), papyrus (estimated at around 2560 BC), the telescope (invented in 1609), and the construction of the Egyptian pyramids. And the Terror Birds, 2 million years out of place.

* ''Film/ItHappenedInAthens'' is set at the UsefulNotes/OlympicGames of 1896, which it portrays with traditions that were only added to the modern Olympics later on. The movie's version of the 1896 opening ceremony includes the Parade of Nations (introduced at the 1908 Olympics) and the lighting of the Olympic flame (introduced at the 1928 Olympics). The movie also features winning athletes being honored with a rendition of their country's NationalAnthem, a tradition that started at the 1932 games (moreover, "The Star-Spangled Banner" is explicitly identified as the U.S. national anthem, which it didn't become until 1931).

* ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'': Several anachronisms with the 2003 time period: the Samsung [=SyncMaster=] 941BW was not available in 2003, Serato Scratch Live wasn't released until 2004, a can of Mountain Dew uses a newer logo introduced in 2005, the site "Cats That Look Like Hitler" wasn't there until 2006, Windows XP Service Pack 3, ''[[{{Fallout3}} Fallout 3]]'', and Dennis de Laat's "The Sound Of Violence" weren't released until 2008, Bing wasn't around until 2009, Harvard had a "@fas.harvard.edu" e-mail address instead of "@harvard.edu", Harvard dorms at the time required swiping a keycard instead of keyless entry, and the film's ending claims Facebook is available in [[WritersCannotDoMath 207 countries]] when the last count was 196.

* ''Legend of Pocahontas'', the Creator/DingoPictures MockBuster of Disney's ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'', doesn't even try to be period accurate. Pocahontas and her tribe are riding horses before the white settlers introduced them and practicing archery with European-style bullseye targets, both the Indians and Englishmen drink booze from modern-style beer bottles, the soon-to-be-colonists mention Queen Victoria, and their settlement is a town straight out of the OldWest, complete with a saloon sporting [[FamilyFriendlyStripper dancing showgirls]], modern-day garbage cans, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking fish 'n chips]].
