Since most of those films has humans being eaten, hunted, beaten, or killed, or the world is going to end, I’ll take “Tomorrowland”. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1964418/... At least we have a chance for a better tomorrow in that one.
Of your list, “Logan” or “Hot Tub Time Machine” or “Reel Steel”. I mean, think about this. Most of the films listed present worlds of nightmare where you got to be insane if you want to live in them. I mean a serious screw loose. I mean the world of “Ready Player One” is more preferable than most of the ones presented here but that is set at least one more decade away (because the 2020’s is mentioned in a soliloquy in that film as past history).

Thanks, I appreciate the suggestions, but I won't be able to use either, as the movies have to be set in the 2020's decade from 01 January 2020 through 31 December 2029.

I like Torrowland (2015) a lot on many different levels from the casting to the story.  All I could verify was a present day 2015 time frame, a Frank flashback to !952, and some undetermined point in the future. I personally think it sometime way beyond 2030. Ready Player One is set in year 2045, again outside of the poll parameters of being set 01 January 2020 through 31 December 2029.

As for the list, I don't write the movies, only list the best of what is available. I will be happy to list any more positive takes that have significant portion of the story set during the 2020's.

I revised the question to be clearer: Which of these past movies set in a 2020's decade do you most look forward most to as we approach the near future?

Thanks, I realized my mistake after the fact and changed the title to

Future 2020s Set Movie You Most Look Forward To

to better fit with the spin on the question:

Which of these past movies set in the 2020s decade do you most look forward to as the near future approaches?

urbanemovies I hope to make an extensive video essay somewhere near November (as the movie is set in November 2019) looking  at what it essentially got right. I already have a large list of what was very much spot on.
