Trivia

One of David's friends can be heard talking about the sci-fi/action film Timecop (1994). Both "Timecop" and "Project Almanac" involve the year 2004 as well as traveling exactly 10 years into the past. Coincidentally, 2004 is ten years in the future in "Timecop" since it was made in 1994 and in "Project Almanac" 2004 is ten years in the past since 2014 was the year it was filmed. See more »

Goofs

When David looks at the plane crash footage on his notebook alone in his room, you can see the reflection of the green screen from his notebook's screen in his face. See more »

An insult to movie goers intelligence
31 January 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Just watched this last night, and I have to say it is one of the worst time travel films I have seen. For starters, the writing is a joke, the whole plot is weak and lacks any logic or intelligence for a movie based on science!! It is not smart and is filled with stupid plot holes that are quite insulting to us movie lovers. A lazy work of writing here.

The acting does not add anything special from a group of teen wanna bes. The shaky camera angle was also boring and distracting to say the least.

It actually started out well and showed potential as it created interest as the characters struggled to create the time machine, but once they succeeded, the film just felt flat and did not have any direction or goal and it lost its intrigue.

Save yourself the time and money and skip this lazy attempt of time travel film making, if anything, it did not learn anything from previous films of the same genre
