I mainline Windex and horse tranquilizer
The last four titles do not fit the criteria.



Define "present day". I thought it meant around our time (2020's)

Yeah I have no idea if those last 4 don't fit. How does Donny Darko and Edge of Tomorrow fit and those don't?

Looks like a tricky subject as Death Proof and are are responsible for like the last 4 titles

Welcome to the human race...

I meant as in what would be the present day at the time of the film's release - Star Trek: First Contact was made in the 20th century but involves characters from the 24th century traveling to the 21st century (as opposed to The Philadelphia Experiment being made in 1984 and involving characters traveling to 1984).

Donnie Darko was made in 2001 but takes place in 1988, whereas Edge of Tomorrow was made in 2014 but takes place in at least 2020 or so.

The movie came out in 1995 and its present day is 1996, so it counts.

The title "13 Time Travel Films That Don't Involve The Present Day" really isn't all that clear.

Also in Timecop, released in 1994, there are like 3 parallel timelines (one in the 90s, one in the 80s and one in "the future"). So it's hard to confirm which timeline is the most prevalent or the most important.

Anyways, I enjoy this game, I'll just wait it out till the next one.

The baseline is that it has to at least take place in a different year to the film's year of release. Timecop isn't set in "the 90s", it is a 1994 film that explicitly takes place in 1994, thus rendering it ineligible. 12 Monkeys and Terminator Genisys take place at least a year or two after their actual release dates (1995/1996 and 2015/2017 respectively). Splitting hairs, perhaps, but that's the whole point of the topic.
