* In a German novel called ''2049'', [[CaptainObvious set in that year]], the protagonists see an ad for ''Franchise/StarWars'' -- the fourth trilogy.
** Now that the franchise has been sold to Disney and trilogy #3 is in the works, with further installments hinted at, this may become a reality... or even an underestimate.
** There was a "Choose your own adventure" book in the '80s set in the future that mentions a ''Star Wars 17'' at the beginning.

* ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' had a holographic advertisement for ''Film/{{Jaws}} 19'', directed by Max Spielberg (Steven's son, who was four years old when [=BTTF2=] came out), with the tagline: "This time it's really, REALLY personal." All Marty has to say is, "The shark still looks fake." When the year the movie takes place in rolled around, Universal (maker of both ''BTTF'' and ''Jaws'') did a ''Jaws 19'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pl092whRLlI trailer]]. The sequels start with SelfDeprecation ([[CashCowFranchise "Jaw$ 5: It's all business"]]), explore the various ways a FranchiseZombie rolls ([[RecycledINSPACE Space Shark]], [[LikeThatShowButWithMecha CyberShark]], [[GenerationXerox Brody's grandchildren]], [[AnachronicOrder prequel/sequel to the prequel]]), and even go for specific [[ShoutOut Shout-Outs]] ([[Film/RockyIV "Ivan Sharkovsky"]], [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan Jaws in New York]], [[Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey Fifty Scales of Gray]]).

* At the beginning of the Series/DoctorWho 50th Anniversary simulcast, there was a short bit of the Eleventh Doctor showing up to introduce the show. He had just come from the show's ''100th'' Anniversary, which brought together "all 57 Doctors." That means they've got fifty years to go through another 45 Doctors.

*Mocked to hell and back in Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddysWorld, by the creator of the games himself no less; one of the minigames introduced in Update 2 is FNAF 57: Freddy in Space (itself based off an April Fool's joke on Scott's webpage), a side-scrolling shooter when the antagonist is Scott Cawthon[[spoiler:'s head]] himself, listing off a number of ridiculous sequels and spin-offs (including ''FNAF 61: Freddy vs Bonnie'', said to be the start of the Freddy Cinematic Universe). Considering FNAF has done spectacularly well for an indie franchise made by one guy [[note]]five games (including World itself), with [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddysSisterLocation another]] on the way, [[Film/FiveNightsAtFreddys a film]] in the works, [[Literature/FiveNightsAtFreddysTheSilverEyes a book]] and a '''lot''' of merchandise and fan games[[/note]], it is almost certainly SelfDeprecation.

* In Creator/WoodyAllen's ''{{Film/Sleeper}}'', which takes place two centuries into the future, a UsefulNotes/McDonalds sign shows the number of hamburgers served as 1 followed by a hundred zeroes (a googol). In real life, the chain ended the count at 100 million in 1994, replacing it with "billions and billions served".
* ''Film/HarleyDavidsonAndTheMarlboroMan'' at one point shows a billboard in the background advertising ''[[DieHard Die Hardest V]]'', which is a bit of an odd choice as the film came out in 1991 when there had been only two ''Die Hard'' films made so far, and it takes place in 1996 which is really overestimating the rate of churning out sequels. Good job at predicting it would turn into a long-running franchise, though!
