Famous movie props are either kept by the cast, sold off or discarded after filming but some props are so awesome they are used again in other movies.
The Pod From 2001 Space Odyssey Also Appears In Star Wars The Phantom menace
The EVA pod from 2001 Space Odyssey managed to make its way through the universe and land in Watto’s junkyard in Star Wars The Phantom Menace. It’s enough to make Stanley Kubrick roll in his grave had he not already tired himself out from A.I.
Arnold Uses The Same Minigun In Terminator 2 That Appeared In Predator
The story goes that after Jesse “Captain Freedom” Ventura got to have his fun with it on the set of Predator, Mr. Schwarzenegger was itching to try it out. As was James Cameron.
So they stuck the same model in there because well… it’s awesome. It’s literally the most impractical gun ever. It’s the stretch Hummer of guns. But damn I would live one.
The Ghostbusters’ PKE Meter Shows Up In They Live
Might as well keep that John Carpenter train going. Did anyone else notice this? The bad guys are using these futuristic walkie-talkies that are clearly just the PKE meters from Ghostbusters repainted black.
It’s just one more beautiful detail to this already awesome film. The best part is that you can’t tell if they did it on purpose or not, much like the rest of the film as well.
Die Hard And The Hunt For Red October Share The Same Teddy Bear
It’s nice to see that the teddy bear finally does make it into a child’s arms after all it’s been through – it’s the Cinderella story of stuffed animals.
If you haven’t realized it yet, Die Hard and Hunt For Red October were both directed by John McTiernan. If only he kept this bear theme going and made the Predator alien fuzzy and brown.
Sam Raimi’s 1973 Yellow Oldsmobile Delta 88
The list of movies this car has appeared in is huge. Originally serving as Ash’s car in the Evil Dead series, you can see it in Crimewave, Darkman, A Simple Plan, The Gift, Drag Me To Hell, and of course as Uncle Ben’s car in the Spider-Man movies.
It even appeared Sam’s western The Quick And The Dead. That time he stuck it under a covered wagon so as to not, you know, confuse people.
