I had considered that (Infact it's really ironic, since the appearance of 14&15's arrival in the city is just like how Trunks told them about the Androids) However, that scenario doesn't work.
We can assume that the intro scene from the movie follows the series story up to that point. 19 is missing, Dr. Gero is missing his hat and arm, and 17 kills Gero in the same fashion, and 17 smirks up at the open doorway (at the unseen Z senshi).
Fast forward to the movie, now everybody is relaxing in the city, not searching for 17 and 18 or 20. This heavily implies that the androids at this point are dead. (Poor Kuririn)
