This question already has an answer here:

Is has been established that Logan takes place in 2029.

And, as can be seen from the trailers 1 and 2, it takes place in desert terrain in Oklahoma, Texas, and Mexico. So most things are old and dusty. But, for example, the cars and objects in the gas station store don't appear to have been modified to appear to be from our future.

Besides the obviously sci-fi elements (cybernetic mutants and their weapons, for example, which in the X-Men universe are not necessarily futuristic) is there anything else that would indicate that this is 12 years into the future?

Edit: Follow on question: What are the non-contemporaneous items or design choices in Logan?

    To be clear, I'm not asking about dialog like that. I'm asking if there is any technology newer than today, like a phone or a car, for example. – ThePopMachine Feb 6 '17 at 18:35

    Aside from the cybernetic claw-hand, you mean? – Valorum Feb 6 '17 at 18:36

    @Valorum, yes, besides that. As I said in the question, those technologies, as they are not really related to the date, they are just suspension-of-disbelief items in X-Men. – ThePopMachine Feb 6 '17 at 18:46

    I will point out that, aside from the cities, people living in those area tend to suffer from good-old-days-itis. And such are less likely to: buy a new car, when an old one works; try a new brand, when the one their grampa used is still available. It's only like 12 years, there are still places in rural OK that haven't made it out of the '50s. :) – Seeds Feb 6 '17 at 19:10

    @CBredlow: Cars. Phones. Junk food logos. Calendars. Two presidents. Hairstyles. Clothing. Prominent companies. The question is essentially whether they put any effort into making anything different due to being 12 years in the future. – ThePopMachine Feb 7 '17 at 22:44


Other than all the things you already eliminated (like robotic limbs) I don't see anything in either trailer that suggests "the future."
