Can you name any old sci-fi movies or shows, set in a future that has already come and gone?

I was wondering is anyone can name any old science fiction films and/or shows, that when they were first made, talked of a distant future that has now come and gone.

For example, movies made in the 70’s that talked about the year 2010, and talked about all the technology we would have in 2010.

According to some movies, we should have flying cars by now, according to others, it wont be long now until we all have hover-boards, and according to others we would all have camera phones by now.

Some of the past science fiction technology predictions have come true, some have yet to be made a reality, and others may never be possible.

Can you name any science fiction movies from the past, that made interesting predictions? Movies that talked of a future that we would now call the past?

Who knew that the movie robocop would have ended up predicting the fox news channel.
