** Creator/RickMoranis' voice as Dark Helmet got even funnier with the release of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' original trilogy on DVD and its documentary ''Empire of Dreams'', where it's revealed that David Prowse, the man in the Darth Vader suit, has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSm9DDxQv8E&feature=related remarkably similar]] voice.

* ''Film/CloudAtlas'': Timothy talks about Creator/HermanMelville and ''Literature/MobyDick'' in the beginning of his story. Fast-forward to 2015, ''Film/InTheHeartOfTheSea'' stars Creator/BenWhishaw as Herman Melville.
** The Kona are a tribe of all-male lawless marauders in a post-apocalyptic future who notably wear war paint that makes their faces resemble skulls. Are we talking about the cannibal tribes of Hawaii or the [[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad War Boys]]?

** Also, 4 years after his character is bullied by his father for wanting to be in a Shakespeare play, Robert Sean Leonard would play the lead (well sorta) in ''Film/MuchAdoAboutNothing''.

** Speaking of Dutch, we all know [[LukeIAmYourFather the greatest twist in the saga]]. Then we find out that Vader happens to be Dutch for "father". Perhaps a complete coincidence, considering George Lucas had probably never heard about the language and, as early drafts hint, likely had the word "invader" in mind for the character's name anyway. But considering Anakin's wife was already pregnant with Luke and [[spoiler:Leia]] and he wanted to save her from dying in childbirth, this would make Sidious dubbing him "Darth Vader" in ''RevengeOfTheSith'' doubly appropriate, because it's shorthand for "invader" (which would follow Sith naming conventions quite nicely, if the old EU is anything to go by) ''and'' another word for father, which the newly-minted Darth Vader would soon become.

* In the late 90s, Creator/LeslieNielsen was attached to star in a ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' spoof called ''Titanic Too: It Missed the Iceberg'', which would have been set in the present-day and centered around the maiden voyage of a replica version of the ''Titanic'', but the project ultimately fell through after being unable to secure funding. In 2010, Creator/TheAsylum produced the NoBudget flick ''Titanic II'', which had the exact same storyline except done in complete seriousness. And then two years after that, a plan to make a ''real-life'' Titanic II [[http://www.people.com/article/titanic-ii-to-set-sail-in-2018?xid=rss-fullcontent was announced...]]

* In ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000: TheMovie'', they riff on the movie ThisIslandEarth. During a scene where Brack communicates via interocitor, Tom sings a fictional theme song that goes, "It's the Brack show, starring me - and Brack! It's the Brack show, and I've got lots of good guests..." Four years later, WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow would come into existence (which was preceded by two specials, both entitled [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Brak Presents the Brak Show Starring Brak]], the second of which was a variety show that - indeed - had guests).

* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qu_Eag_NbVU Cutting Edge]]'', a song in ''Film/TheBraveLittleToaster'' where The Master's new appliances gloat about how technologically advanced they are is amusing to watch now that [[TechnologyMarchesOn Technology Has Marched On]]. Said "cutting edge" appliances are now all hilariously and amazingly obsolete (good luck even finding some of them in a thrift store), while the "outdated" toaster, lamp, vacuum, and electric blanket are all still popular and commonly used in homes.

*** At the end of the movie, Wolverine tells Rogue "I have some business to take care of up north." The Podcast/RiffTrax notes that he's gone to help Santa Claus. In ''Film/RiseOfTheGuardians'', Creator/HughJackman did end up helping Santa Claus, as the voice of the Easter Bunny.
