* All of O.J. Simpson's showbiz career now falls under this trope, thanks to his '''very''' prominent trial for the murder of his estranged ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman (acquitted of the criminal acts, but found responsible in civil court) and subsequent conviction of armed robbery in Nevada.

** In an episode of Franchise/Dragnet (the '60s TV revival series) Friday and Gannon appear a few times in front of a group of minority high-school graduates, hoping to convince them to apply to the Police Academy. O.J. Simpson appears as one of the graduates, and his only line is to ask a question about how hard the entrance exams are. But it seems surreal that O.J. might have inspired real-life people to join the Los Angeles Police Department - the very organization that investigated him for the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

** Film/TheTerminator was originally going to be portrayed by O.J. Simpson, but according to director James Cameron, "people wouldn't have believed a nice guy like O. J. playing the part of a ruthless killer."

** ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' ends with the hope that the Federation and the Romulan Empire will be able to put the past behind them and band together for the common good; even after all the time they've spent fighting. [[spoiler: Neither will happen, Romulus of this universe was canonically destroyed by a supernova in the ContinuityReboot ''Film/StarTrek''; giving Nero the impetus to screw around with the AlternateContinuity of the Abrams films.]]

* The mostly forgotten 2006 film ''Film/JustMyLuck'' revolves around Creator/Lindsay Lohan being incredibly lucky and, after kissing him at a party, switching fortunes with Creator/Chris Pine who is incredibly unlucky which results in him achieving good fortune while she suffers frequent humiliation. That would be a pretty accurate summary of Their subsequent careers: Chris Pine was cast in ''Film/StarTrek2009'' shortly after and became an A-List star whose career is still respected and going strong over ten years later. Lindsay Lohan's career had already been suffering with her frequent instances of primadonna behavior and it was dealt a [[StarDerailingRole serious blow]] a year later by ''Film/IKnowWhoKilledMe'', a failure she still hasn't fully recovered from. Ten years on, what work she can get is mostly ignored, she's frequently brought up only as a punchline or a sad example of [[HollywoodHypeMachine a young actor whose career ultimately never became what everyone imagined]] and it's getting less likely that she'll ever recover anything like the fame she once had.

** A meta example. Peter Finch, an Australian previously Oscar-nominated for playing a homosexual man, died soon after playing the part of an anti-establishment nutcase and ended up winning a posthumous Oscar for the role. Who does ''[[HeathLedger that]]'' remind you of?

* In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', the character Skurge boasts that he got a pair of automatic rifles from Texas. On the Sunday of the film's opening weekend, a mass shooting occurred at a Texas church, using a similar rifle. For bonus points, Skurge's rifles appear to be stolen from the military, and the shooter wasn't legally allowed to own or purchase any guns, because the Air Force convicted him of a crime.[[note]]He purchased the weapons he used because the offense somehow didn't make it to his civilian criminal record, and thus didn't come up in the background check.[[/note]]

* In hindsight, the backdraft over ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'' for the whole "the Turtles is aliens" twist after the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 recent cartoon]] (also produced by Nickelodeon) revealed that [[spoiler: ''April'' is essentially an alien in that series.]]

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', a child hippo tells Judy, a rookie cop on meter maid duty, "My mommy says she wishes you were dead". This becomes very cringe-worthy following the deadly attacks on police officers later that summer.
