** Appears in the otherwise forgettable and inexplicable ''Film/SuperMarioBrothers'' movie out of nowhere. The film featured a plot by King Koopa to merge our dimension with his own (the film has an... interesting take on the games' plot). When the alternate dimensions start combining in New York, the film shows the Twin Towers disintegrating.

** The poster for the 1987 movie "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Squeeze_%281987_film%29 The Squeeze]]". Yes, those are the Twin Towers. Same goes for the poster for ''Film/DieHard''

* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' (1996) features a VillainSong called Hellfire, in which the villain sings about burning down Notre Dame. Come April of 2019... (Also qualifies as HilariousInHindsight for those with a dark sense of humor, especially since Disney was in the middle of making hi-def and live-action remakes of some of its older movies at the time!)

* The 1998 remake of ''Film/TheParentTrap'' is kind of depressing to watch now since it's a family movie starring the now late Creator/NatashaRichardson (who of course, died in a skiing accident). It also of course, stars a young Creator/LindsayLohan in more innocent times. Also, the whole plot centers on Creator/DennisQuaid's twins (both played by Lindsay Lohan). In real life, Dennis Quaid's own newborn twins almost died due to an accidental overdose.

* ''Film/TheCrimeDoctorsStrangestCase'': In this movie, Gloria Dickson is married to a man, played by Jerome Cowan, who is habitually starting fires with carelessly discarded smoking materials. There are two scenes in the movie, including the final scene, in which he starts such fires. Her character comments, "I'm practically cremated." When describing living with him. Ironically, just two short years after this movie was released Gloria was killed in a house fire, suspected to have been caused by a carelessly discarded cigarette.

** The whole "[[TheDogShotFirst Han shot first]]" debacle is less funny after the Trayvon Martin shooting sparked controversy over "stand your ground" laws in RealLife.

* ''Film/Deadpool2'' features a cameo from the X-Men trying to hide from Wade, expect two of them was missing. [[spoiler:But nothing bad could've happened between Jean and Mystique... [[Film/DarkPhoenix right?]]]]

Added DiffLines:

**In the 2019 addition of Toy Story 2, one of the 'outtakes' scenes featuring the animated characters in behind-the-scenes videos was removed. The scene featured the prospector suggesting to two identical Barbie dolls that he can lend them a role in Toy Story 3, and offers to give them "acting tips," with a sort of 'casting couch' innuendo. Naturally this joke wouldn't be well received in 2019, given all the scandals that have surfaced since then.


* {{Website/Cracked}}.com gives us [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17370_7-completely-unrealistic-movie-plots-that-came-true.html 7 completely unrealistic movie plots that came true]]. Such offenders include ''Film/OfficeSpace'', ''Film/TheShawshankRedemption'', ''Film/ThreeKings'', and others (though some of them can be interpreted as HilariousInHindsight or HarsherInHindsight).

** In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'', the containment system is shut down, the trapped ghosts are released throughout New York and see them flying out over Manhattan. During a long-distance shot, they seem to originate from right around the towers. So we have bright lights and ''ghosts'' flying out from the World Trade Center towers. One of the memorials to the Twin Towers has been shining twin spotlights straight up into the sky from Ground Zero once a year.

** The song "All for the Best" from the 1972 movie of {{Film/Godspell}} ends with an aerial shot of the cast dancing and singing on a rooftop in NYC. The shot pulls out to show that the roof is that of the North Tower, as the cast sings the last line, "Yes, it's all for the best!" The second last line in that song, just before the camera pulls out to reveal where they're dancing? "Someone's got to be oppressed!"

* In the first American remake of ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'', a newscaster makes a reference to Godzilla's attack being the "worst act of destruction since the World Trade Center bombing". Y'know, the one from 1993.

* A TV spot for ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'' that aired during the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' finale opens with the message "It's time to say goodbye to something that holds a special place in our hearts..." over a shot of New York City with the WTC towers visible, followed by the words "NEW YORK" and scenes of Godzilla destroying the city. You can guess what event soured this.

* ''{{Film/Severance}}'' is meant to be a ''dark'' film, but the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbhiQT4eVt0 infamous rocket launcher scene]] that was one of the [[BloodyHilarious black comedy highlights]] suddenly becomes quite uncomfortable to watch after the loss of two commercial airliners in a few months, one appearing to be shot down by a surface launched missile.

*** Particularly cringe-inducing is the town sign, which has a picture of a hanging witch and two Puritans. When you learn what that scene would [[WouldHurtAChild actually have]] [[MoralEventHorizon looked like...]]
* In ''{{Disney/Mulan}}'', the happy travel song "A Girl Worth Fighting For" [[spoiler:is cut off when the troops discover a massacred village. The doll Mulan finds represents a very different little "girl worth fighting for."]]

* The mostly forgotten 2006 film ''Film/JustMyLuck'' revolves around Creator/LindsayLohan being incredibly lucky and, after kissing him at a party, switching fortunes with Creator/ChrisPine who is incredibly unlucky which results in him achieving good fortune while she suffers frequent humiliation. That would be a pretty accurate summary of Their subsequent careers: Creator/ChrisPine was cast in ''Film/StarTrek2009'' shortly after and became an A-List star whose career is still respected and going strong over ten years later. Lindsay Lohan's career had already been suffering with her frequent instances of primadonna behavior and it was dealt a [[StarDerailingRole serious blow]] a year later by ''Film/IKnowWhoKilledMe'', a failure she still hasn't fully recovered from. Ten years on, what work she can get is mostly ignored, she's frequently brought up only as a punchline or a sad example of [[HollywoodHypeMachine a young actor whose career ultimately never became what everyone imagined]] and it's getting less likely that she'll ever recover anything like the fame she once had.
