*** 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.

Sorry, computer issues—Did not mean to revert that edit.
* ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' features a space probe that was turned into an intelligent life form. That probe was originally Voyager 6. Nevermind that NASA only ever planned for and launched ''two'' Voyager probes... ** [[http://movies.trekcore.com/gallery/albums/tmp2/tmphd0388.jpg The buckles on the Starfleet uniforms]] look a lot like an [=iPhone=] or [=iPod=] Touch, which means that TMP foresaw EverythingIsAnIpodInTheFuture. * ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}'' is a very funny movie, but it's about twice as funny now that we know Creator/GeorgeTakei is gay. Boy, Sulu sure does ''love'' San Francisco, doesn't he? ** Except for the fact Takei was ''born'' there, and that was used as part of Sulu's {{Backstory}} in the first place. ** Made even better when interviewed in 2006 as to when he first met his partner Brad Altman, the time he said was "about 20 years ago", around the time that ''Star Trek IV'' was being made. ** There are a lot of moments like this in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' now. For instance, the crew goes down to a planet that brings dreams to life. For Kirk, beautiful women appear. For Sulu, a handsome samurai. *** There was one scene in "The Naked Time" ep where Sulu, under the effects of polywater, asks the male navigator to go to the gym with him in order to teach him "fencing"... *** ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'' contains a scene where the other crew members are surprised to learn that Sulu has a daughter. **** Well, ''Kirk'' is surprised, Scotty doesn't seem to be and Chekov clearly knows. It might have been more of a jab at William Shatner, who has admitted the rest of the OS cast may have had a point about him being completely self-absorbed--Kirk is so oblivious to his crew having moved on he doesn't know Sulu has a daughter old enough to be an officer on Enterprise-B. *** There is also that scene in ''Film/{{Star Trek III|The Search for Spock}}'', when they're busting [=McCoy=] out of the jail. Sulu is holding a (male) guard up against a wall, and seems just a LITTLE too close and low. Oh, and he seemed to be thrusting a bit, and if one pauses and REALLY looks for it, Sulu's eyes seem to be staring at the guard's crotch. **** "Don't call me 'Tiny'"...... **** In that same scene from ''Star Trek III: The Search for Spock'', a phaser packing Uhura demands the transporter beam operator to "get in the closet"! ** On a slightly different note, Sulu's canon interest in "botany" is kind of hilarious now that he's being portrayed by [[Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle Harold]]. I think we all know what he's ''really'' growing back there... * A more subtle example from ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}'' might be Scotty's attempts to use an early Apple Mac leading to him saying "The keyboard? How quaint!" when advised to use it instead of the mouse[[note]]which he thinks is a microphone for voice command input![[/note]]. It's meant to be ironic in that Dr. Nichols ''thinks'' he's unfamiliar with the use of mice and [[=GUIs=]] which were cutting-edge at the time. Doubly ironic for modern audiences now that touchscreen-based devices are almost literally rendering keyboards quaint. LifeImitatesArt? * The 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' film: ** Kirk's family gets quite funny when you consider the actors' work since 2009: *** His dad dies after investigating a lightning storm in space. Flash forward a few weeks and guess who's been cast as Film/{{Thor}}? *** Kirk's mom names her son after her father, James. Her father on ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is also named James, but he's better known as Prince Charming. Prince Charming's actor was also Fandral the Dashing in ''Thor''. In other words, Fandral's daughter ''married'' Thor and they eventually had a kid in space. *** Kirk's actor Creator/ChrisPine plays Prince Charming in the film adaptation of ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'', making one Prince Charming the grandson of another. ** In the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' [[Film/{{Doom}} movie]], Creator/KarlUrban plays a marine who said "They're Marines, Sam, not poets." Very close to Dr. [=McCoy=]'s classic ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder. Later, in ''Film/StarTrek'', Urban plays Dr. [=McCoy=]. ** In the British TV show ''Spaced'', Simon Pegg's character remarks that every odd numbered Star Trek movie is "shit." In 2009, Simon Pegg appears in an odd-numbered ''Film/StarTrek'' movie. He [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this in an interview after taking the role. -->'''Simon Pegg''': ''Fate put me in the movie to show me I was talking out of my ass.'' ** In ''Film/StarTrek'', Eric Bana plays a time-traveling man who misses his now-dead wife. ''The Time-Traveler's Wife'', starring Eric Bana, was released shortly after.

Very close to Dr. [=McCoy=]'s classic ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder. Later, in ''Film/StarTrek'', Urban plays Dr. [=McCoy=]. ** In the British TV show ''Spaced'', Simon Pegg's character remarks that every odd numbered Star Trek movie is "shit." In 2009, Simon Pegg appears in an odd-numbered ''Film/StarTrek'' movie. He [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this in an interview after taking the role. -->'''Simon Pegg''': ''Fate put me in the movie to show me I was talking out of my ass.'' ** *** In ''Film/StarTrek'', Eric Bana plays a time-traveling man who misses his now-dead wife. ''The Time-Traveler's Wife'', starring Eric Bana, was released shortly after.after. ** Various scenes in the films have become funnier now that we know Creator/GeorgeTakei is gay. *** In ''Film/{{Star Trek III|The Search for Spock}}'', when they bust [=McCoy=] out of the jail, Sulu holds a (male) guard up against a wall and seems just a ''little'' too close and low...and he seemed to be thrusting a bit...and if one pauses and ''really'' looks for it, Sulu's eyes seem to be staring at the guard's crotch. In the same scene, a phaser-packing Uhura orders the transporter beam operator to "get in the closet". *** In ''Film/{{Star Trek IV|The Voyage Home}}'', Sulu sure does ''love'' San Francisco, doesn't he?[[note]]In fact, Takei was ''born'' there, and that was always part of Sulu's {{Backstory}}.[[/note]] In addition, Takei mentioned in 2006 that he first met his partner Brad Altman "about 20 years ago", i.e., around the time that ''Star Trek IV'' was being made. *** 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.

Cleaning up Leslie Nielsen example. ''Creepshow'' and ''Prom Night'' are not examples, since they came out after Airplane—not hindsight.
* {{Creator/Leslie Nielsen}}'s role in ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' has made most of his previous roles much [[LeslieNielsenSyndrome funnier]] in hindsight. Examples include Nielsen captaining the S.S. Poseidon in ''Film/ThePoseidonAdventure'' and ''Project Kill'', wherein he plays a rogue, drug-addicted CIA assassin who has a climactic martial arts battle with ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'''s Gary Lockwood. Indeed, ''Airplane'' was deliberately casting with actors like like Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, etc., to send up their earlier roles in "straight" disaster films.

* Hey, isn't that LeslieNielsen captaining the ''[[ThePoseidonAdventure S.S. Poseidon'']]? ** In fact, most of Leslie Nielsen's pre-''Film/{{Airplane}}'' film roles would [[LeslieNielsenSyndrome qualify under this trope]]. Behold ''Project Kill'', where he plays a rogue, drug-addicted CIA assassin. At the climax, he has a martial arts battle with ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'''s Gary Lockwood. ** The whole point of casting people like Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, etc. in ''Airplane'' was to give them a chance to send up their earlier performances in "straight" disaster films. ** A better example would probably be his role as Ted Danson's killer (because Ted Danson was a lot like Sam Malone and slept with Nielsen's wife) in Creepshow because Creepshow came out well after Airplane! and just a few months after Police Squad! It was Nielsen's last serious role in a well known movie. The only one after his comedy career began. ** Try going through the original ''Prom Night'' without riffing "don't call me Shirley" during Nielsen's scenes. Just try it.

Cleaning up indentation in ''Film/Spaceballs'' example. Moving ''Airplane II The Sequel'' bullet to its own entry. Moving The Angry Video Game Nerd bullet to Web Original page.
* A sight gag from ''Film/AirplaneIITheSequel'' showed a movie poster featuring a 90-or-so year old man in boxing trunks and gloves with the caption "Franchise/{{Rocky}} XXXVIII" became funnier with the release of the sixth film, ''Film/RockyBalboa'', a full 30 years after the original ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' and 16 years after ''Film/RockyV''.

* The quick joke in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' about 'Rocky Five... Thousand' became even funnier when the most recent ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' came out. ** Also the joke about the sequel, ''Spaceballs II: the Search for More Money'' is much funnier now that the prequels were made. ** As did a sight gag from ''Film/AirplaneIITheSequel'': a movie poster showing a 90-or-so year old man in boxing trunks and gloves, with the caption "Rocky XXXVIII". *** Not Rocky-related, but Stallone-related: WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd, in an episode about confusing sequel names, complained about the sixth installment being called Rocky Balboa and went something along the lines of "What are they gonna do next, a ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}'' sequel and name it John Rambo"? Needless to say, guess how the next movie in the Rambo franchise was named (in some countries, anyway)... **** AVGN mentioned this in a later video, with the comment "It felt like I was talking to a retard, like saying 'What are you, retarded?'" ** 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 the voice of David Prowse, the man in the Darth Vader suit, was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSm9DDxQv8E&feature=related remarkably similar]]. *** With the Star Wars prequel trilogy, it makes more sense now that we know Darth Vader was really just some whiny guy wearing a suit.

Alphabetizing examples
* In ''Film/BullDurham'', "Crash" Davis, played by Kevin Costner, gives a [[https://youtu.be/A8W8GGdD6pc?t=30s well-known speech]] (video NSFW) in which he declares "I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone!" A few years later, Kevin Costner was playing Jim Garrison in ''Film/{{JFK}}''.

* After appearing together in ''Film/ExMachina'', Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac would appear together again in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' but with reversed roles - Oscar is the ace X-wing pilot who's escaping from Domhnall, who is the military genius and superweapon creator.

* In ''Film/TheFirstTime'', Britt Robertson's character makes fun of Creator/NicholasSparks books. Robertson would later star in the adaptation of Sparks's ''Literature/TheLongestRide''.

* ''Film/HotTubTimeMachine'': ** Blaine is a Type 2 EagleLand JerkJock who is always freaking out about how the protagonists are secret Russian spies in their midst. Fast forward to ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', where that's exactly what he is [[spoiler:(or so it seems)]]. And yes, you did just see that guy from ''Series/TheDailyShow'' beat the ever-loving shit out of the [[ImplacableMan Winter Soldier]]. ** In the scene parodying the Denver Broncos' game-winning drive in an AFC Championship game, Mark Jackson drops a pass due to a squirrel distracting him. In the 2011 National League Division series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the St. Louis Cardinals, play was temporarily halted because a squirrel ran onto the field. Cardinals fans gave it the nickname "Rally Squirrel" as their team went onto win the World Series that year. * In ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1'', Haymitch protests on the make-up they put on Katniss for the propo shoot, point out that she's a teenager but they made her look 35. Creator/JenniferLawrence who plays Katniss has made three films with Creator/DavidORussell, all in which she [[PlayingGertrude plays women older than herself]], including ''Film/AmericanHustle'' (mid-30s) and ''Film/{{Joy}}'' (30s and 40s).

* Eddie Redmayne's ''extreme'' overacting in ''Film/JupiterAscending'' became even funnier after he won an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward a few weeks later for ''Film/TheTheoryOfEverything'', [[https://twitter.com/misterpatches/status/569721127443963904 with many joking that it was really for this film]].

* The 1975 comedy flick "Linda Lovelace For President" starred Linda Lovelace as herself embarking on a political career. Later, fellow porn actress Marilyn Chambers twice attempted to embark on a political career by running for vice president (2004 Personal Choice Party, 2008 as a write-in candidate).

* 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.

Not an example. Batman Begins came out shortly *before* Red Eye, so there's no "hindsight" involved.
* It's hard not to laugh at a line in ''Film/RedEye'' when Lisa asks Jackson Rippner if he's a psychiatrist if that's exactly what Creator/CillianMurphy played in [[Film/BatmanBegins the first movie you ever saw him in.]] Granted, he was already fairly recognizable as Jim from ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' for some people before he was Scarecrow, but considering most of the teenagers/early twenty-somethings that make up Cillian Murphy's fangirls were too young to see that one in theaters when it came out and Scarecrow was their first exposure to Murphy, it's still funny to them.

Alphabetizing examples, fixing indentation, removing commentary unrelated to the trope
* In ''Film/TheBlindSide'', Creator/SandraBullock plays a woman who adopts a very underprivileged black boy in TheDeepSouth. In RealLife, Sandra adopted a black (infant) boy from UsefulNotes/NewOrleans. * Almost anyone who's seen the original version of ''Film/TheBlob1958'' after about 1990 will find some humor in the film's final line, "We're safe as long as [[GlobalWarming the Arctic stays cold]]."

* 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.

* Creator/WesCraven's ''Film/{{Cursed|2005}}'' features a werewolf named [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Jake]].

* ''Film/TheNakedGun 2 1/2'' was released in 1991, just after it was discovered that the Hubble Space Telescope's primary mirror was flawed and it was taking fuzzy pictures. In the movie, a picture of the Hubble appears on a "Wall of Failures" next to the Titanic. It's not considered much of a failure anymore...[[note]]Although, it did take a new mission at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars to fix it[[/note]]

* It is rather hard to think of ''Film/RememberMe'' without laughing if one recalls the meme ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' spawned with those two words.

* In ''Film/RoleModels'', upon seeing Augy (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in his [[{{LARP}} LAIRE]] cape for the first time, Ronnie remarks, "What are you supposed to be, a superhero or something?" Mintz-Plasse would go on to play a super in ''Film/KickAss''.
