I recently saw The Martian. I must say I loved it. I thought it was an excellent movie. It was acted well, done well, the story was fun/terrifying. I definitely recommend it.
And I can tell you that it is definitely set in the future. The give away was not the technology or the fact that people were on Mars, no. It was that the director of NASA was a black man and the commander of the mission was a woman.
Very futuristic touch, that right there. Well played, Ridley Scott. Well played.
