Yeah I was just looking at the wiki page, stating it starts in 1975, then six years later (to 1981)

I just wondered as the Three Mile Island incident occured in 1979, and isn't in the movie kinda like their version of it. Been a while since I watched it.
It's a movie, so it wouldn't be implausible for the script to have fudged the details a bit from real-life events so that the Three Mile Island incident takes place two years later than it did IRL.

Doesn't Mariko say to Logan in one of the trailers that she's been searching for the Wolverine for a "year"? So given that it takes place after "The Last Stand" we can at least assume that it takes place at least a year after the events of that film, although still not exactly knowing the actual date.
Good point; so, for the sake of simplicity, let's assume TW takes place in 2001 if not later according to my timeline.
