Chris did get out. He enrolled in the college courses with me, and although it was hard, he gutted it out like he always did. He went on to college and eventually became a lawyer. Last week, he entered a fast food restaurant. Just ahead of him, two men got into an argument; one of them pulled a knife. Chris, who'd always made the best peace, tried to break it up. He was stabbed in the throat; he died almost instantly. Although I hadn't seen him for more than 10 years, I know I'll miss him forever.

In The Hunt for Red October Sam Neill's character's final words are: "I would like to have seen Montana"

A couple of years later we meet Sam Neill as Dr. Grant diging up dinosaurs in... Montana!

Unsure whether this is intentional or not...

In The Dead Zone Christopher Walken was a schoolteacher who told the class to read 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' and of course ended up playing the headless horseman in Burton's Sleepy Hollow.

Seeing as it was made years before Tim Burton even became a director I'd say that was definitely unintentional.

What I meant was, it may have been intentional on Burton's part. He could have seen The Dead Zone, seen Walken reading the book and thought "hey wouldn't it cool if he was the headless horseman".

In Platoon one of the gunts says something along the lines of "Who's that guy think he is, Jesus Fucking Christ?" in reference to Willem Dafoe's Sgt Elias. 2 years later and who's Dafoe playing? Only JC himself in the Last Temptation of Christ

Whilst we're talking about The Dead Zone, it also has Martin Sheen as a man who would one day become president.... as in The West Wing.

In Leon, Gary Oldman waxes lyrical about Beethoven. "I love these little moments before the storm."

The same year, he played Beethoven, in Immortal Beloved.

I don't know which way round they were made, tho.

And Minority Report for several years was actually going to be the sequel to the original Total Recall film. Weird, huh?

Empire pointed out at the time. Naked Gun 33 &1/3 ends with OJ Simpson running off in a panic, chased by police.

There's a scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where Jason Segal sings the Muppets theme tune on the piano, and couple of years later, he helped bring the Muppets back to the big screen
