* The 1946 drama ''Dragonwyck'' has VincentPrice as the sinister Nicholas Van Ryn. At one point he sardonically asks the heroine if she expected to find in his room velvet drapes, pagan idols, and altars to human sacrifice. The movies he appeared in afterwards tended to have elements like those in them regularly. It was like Price had looked into his future...

* An acting career spanning seven decades is bound to yield some of those. In ''L'Enigme de Pise'', an episode of the historical TV series ''La Caméra Explore Le Temps'' telling the story of a famous impostor, Michel Piccoli jokes that just because he was often told he looks like the current Pope, doesn't mean that he is the Pope. Half a century later, he played the reluctant Pope in ''Habemus Papam''.

** JohnTravolta's character, Tony, stops having sex with Annette because she doesn't have a diaphragm and he doesn't want to get her pregnant. (She might have wanted him to get her pregnant.) At the beginning of ''[[Film/LookWhosTalking Look Who's Talking Too]]'', Travolta's character, James, has sex with Mollie while she's wearing her diaphragm. [[ButWeUsedACondom She gets pregnant anyway]].

** In 2015, Marty notices the Chicago Cubs winning the series against Miami (depicted an alligator mascot). A few months later plans were announced for a Miami ballteam, and the Marlins began playing in 1993. And... while both teams are in the National League, the playoffs season has dragged to late October, [[FridgeBrilliance so it wouldn't be far-fetched for the Cubs to have beaten the Marlins in the pennant before October 21.]]
*** Slightly subverted in real life, the 2015 Marlins didn't really amount to anything; and while the Cubs clinched their first-ever NLCS that year (their first chance to a Fall Classic in ''seven decades''), [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome the team was crushed by the underdog New York Mets just on October 21]]. Fortunately, BTTF 2 was off by just a year; as in 2016, the Cubs '''''actually won''''' the damn thing. After overcoming a '''3-1''' deficit in the World Series.

** 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.
