* ''Film/OneTwoThree'' ''literally'' became a period piece ''during'' shooting -- when the production started, the UsefulNotes/BerlinWall had not been erected yet, and shooting could happen at the Brandenburg Gate. However, as filming continued, and they needed to film a chase between JamesCagney's character and his companions and some East German policemen that continued over the border between East and West Berlin, EastGermany very unobligingly decided to put up the Wall. The film is written and performed as if still in the pre-wall period.

* ''Franchise/CharlieChan at the Olympics'' features Chan investigating a plot at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and features possibly the most sympathetic portrayal of Nazi police ever depicted in American film. Even just a few years later, such a plot would be unthinkable.

* The 2017 film version of ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' has a SettingUpdate, where Spidey's fame is built by Website/{{Youtube}} videos rather than print news like in 2002-2007 Spider-Man, the RaceLift of many characters to better represent current demographics of New York youths, turning Flash Thompson into an arrogant rich kid rather than a JerkJock and Aunt May into a "cool aunt" image of the 2010s with a lesser generation gap with Peter instead of the "grandma" image of previous incarnations, EDM and dubstep music in a high school student huse party, a reference to the "F, Marry, Kill" game, and changing Aunt May and Peter's residence from spacious house into an apartment in Queens to better represent 2010s economic condition. All of this carries with it more realism than a faithful Spider-Man adaptation would, but in the future might reek of 2010s ''attempts'' at realism.

* ''Disney/RalphBreaksTheInternetWreckItRalph2'' is already showing significant signs of this, being based on current Internet culture which, given AnimationLeadTime and the Walt Disney Company's legendary DiscoDan tendencies, are sure to be at least a bit behind the times already when the movie is released. The title in particular suffers this, as the phrase "breaking the Internet" was already considered outdated ''before'' it became inextricably linked with Kim Kardashian's naked behind.

* The first volumes of ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'' were serialized and published weekly in the youth supplement of Belgian newspaper ''Le Vingtième Siècle'', and included constant references to world news and celebrities of the moment (either directly or in NoCelebritiesWereHarmed fashion). After WorldWarTwo many of these numbers were redrawn and rewritten to erase them.

* ''Film/WhiteChristmas'' is set in an America where nightclubs are places where people dress up, dance formally, and hear live entertainers perform what are today called standards. Those entertainers gain stardom by appearing on regular radio shows and starring in Broadway revues (variety shows). They travel from Florida to Vermont, and thence to New York, by train; once in New York, they appear on prime-time, live-broadcast, black-and-white TV, and at home the whole family gathers around to watch. And the whole plot is centered around men doing things "for an old pal from the Army" -- the bond created amongst a generation by WorldWarII.

* ''Film/GentlemansAgreement'', a 1947 film about Anti-Semitism, references several 1940s politicians and scandals. At the time, its topicality made it AwardBait; today, these references would send a history professor running to TheOtherWiki.
