These films inaccurately predicted the future

Timecop (1994)

Movies that were wrong about the future 1

Timecop predicted that mankind would perfect time travel by 2004 and would use it to thwart crimes. In the Peter Hyams-directed movie, police officer Max Walker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is recruited by the Time Enforcement Commission to investigate a case concerning Senator Aaron McComb (Ron Silver). But when Walker’s wife, Melissa (Mia Sara), is attacked, he tries to rescue her and save the future at the same time by traveling through time.

Apparently, Timecop got its time travel prediction wrong, because even now, the thought of being able to travel through time remains science fiction. However, the film also featured self-driving cars that were not realistic then, but are becoming more accessible now.
