* In ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'', it was mentioned that the Secret Service keeps installing new instances of James Bond 007 ever so often since the original James Bond 007 (DavidNiven) quit by renaming and renumbering other agents. [[Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService Two years later]], SeanConnery was replaced as James Bond 007 by George Lazenby (before he returned for [[Film/DiamondsAreForever another movie]]). Even later came Roger Moore, [[Film/NeverSayNeverAgain yet another return of Connery]], TimothyDalton, PierceBrosnan, and you might also want to include Creator/DanielCraig on the list.

*** Elliot Carver's plane is essentially making himself the general leading the allies against the communists. Some ten years later, [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Johnathan Pryce is the general leading the allies against the communists.]]

** When it was first released, Carver was compared mostly with businessman Rupert Murdoch (WordOfGod said he was inspired by Robert Maxwell), but a passing mention that his company also sells software full of bugs (to force people to upgrade it for years) also got comparisons to Bill Gates. But now, judging from his rimless glasses and all-black outfits, he can be compared with Creator/SteveJobs, who'd returned to Apple the same year the film came out.

* Creator/SpikeLee's ''She's Gotta Have It'' featured a group of minor characters who weren't given proper names, but were simply listed in the credits and script as "Dog" followed by a number. Erik Todd Dellums was among the "dogs", which means the actor who played [[VideoGames/Fallout3 Three Dog]] had his first credited role as "Dog 3".

** Jason has trouble fighting a rock monster, and when advised to look for its weak points, he irritably snaps back that something made of rock can't possibly have any. In ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'', Samus fights a rock monster, but ''she'' has no problem with it because her power suit has a built-in scanner which ''can'' find its (ever-changing) weak point!

** In ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', after meeting Demora Sulu, Chekov wistfully says "I was never that young...", to which Kirk replies, "No, you were younger." In ''Film/StarTrek'', everybody is younger, [[Creator/AntonYelchin but Chekov in particular stands out]]. This sadly became HarsherInHindsight in 2016, when Anton Yelchin died in an auto accident at age 27, even younger than Creator/WalterKoenig was when he started playing Chekov.



*** In ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', Kirk is surprised to learn that Sulu has a daughter--one old enough to be an officer on Enterprise-B. Aside from Takei coming out, Creator/WilliamShatner has admitted the rest of the cast may have a point about him being completely self-absorbed. Whether one attributes Kirk's surprise to his obliviousness about his crew moving on or to his perception of Sulu's sexuality, it's still pretty funny.
