Some films use interesting depictions like holo-technology allowing people to interface with something that has no physical presence (like on Iron Man 2), and while that's neat, it's still a long way off. Movies that depict the future are, however, different from movies that time travel to the future.
Some have said that Back to the Future overestimated our development capabilities with products such as blender-sized fusion reactors, flying cars, hoverboards, holo-ads, etc. but if you consider that Doc Brown already managed to build a time machine into a Delorian, why wouldn't he be able to help society build all of those other things.

Tony goes from like 60-0 in half a second in some fights and doesn't even get hurt physically, he just bounces a few times and gets up no problem. That's pretty amazing. No airbags. I'm not sure such a thing is even possible. If it is it certainly isn't coming in the next 10 years, unless the military has been developing it in secret. This whole thing is probably one of the biggest reasons an Iron Man suit is very impractical in reality, because you'll just be banging around on the inside against a flying speedy hunk of metal.
