** The fight scene between Arnold Schwarzenegger and JesseVentura in the movie version of ''Film/TheRunningMan''. Tell anyone back then that both men would be elected as US Governors and they would have called you nuts.....heh. Arnold's character even says "I'm not into politics, I'm into survival!". And it gives new meaning to the "running" in the title.

** The casting of Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as husband and wife, considering the fact they were also cast as [[SiblingTeam Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch]] in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. [[{{Twincest}} Especially when you remember]] UltimateMarvel.

* The 1998 Version of the ''Film/TheParentTrap'', Dennis Quaid plays a recently divorced father whose kids want him to get back with his wife. Seven years later, Quaid starred in the 2005 remake of ''Yours Mine And Ours'' where he plays a widowed Coast Guard with eight kids, who marries a widowed handbag designer (Rene Russo) with 10 kids. But the kids' goal in that film is the ''total opposite'' of the twins' goal—They want the parents to ''split up!''.

*** [[SmugSnake John Daggett]] [[BullyingADragon tries to intimidate Bane]], a DarthVaderClone, [[spoiler:only to get strangled to death]]. Ben Mendelsohn, who played Daggett, later starred in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/RogueOne'', where, as Imperial Director Orson Krennic, he faces Vader himself, and [[spoiler:nearly]] gets strangled over it, with Vader countering "Be careful not to ''choke'' on your aspirations, Director.".

[[https://youtu.be/5gL1om02Ols This 2013 fan video]] overdubbed Bane's dialogue with Vader's, and it's incredibly similar to the meeting between Vader and Krennic.

*** This was actually done to the movie long before DVDs were even in existence - when Clue came out on home video and cable, title cards were used to transition from one ending to another; "That's one way it could have happened, but here another way," or something similar to that effect.
