The Low Down Five Movies That Borrowed Footage From Other Films, And Now They’re Caught In The Act Published 6 months ago on Aug 12, 2018 By Will Gardner Many Hollywood directors think they can fool audiences by making it seem like they created entirely new scenes for their films while actually borrowing scenes from other movies. That may have worked back in the day, but savvy audiences aren’t so easily fooled now. Can you spot the similarities between these five scenes? “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” And “Apollo 13” Here’s an important lesson: Don’t borrow from an Academy Award-nominated film. But that’s exactly what the director of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me did. The film includes a scene from the Apollo 11 liftoff, but it’s actually borrowed footage from the breathtaking liftoff scene from Ron Howard’s Apollo 13. Houston, we have a problem with this! Looper “Blade Runner” And “The Shining” Blade Runner director Ridley Scott discussed his reasoning for borrowing his film’s ending scene from The Shining. Investors were dissatisfied with the original ending, so he quickly had to think of a solution. He redid the ending, but he didn’t shoot the footage himself. He asked The Shining director Stanley Kubrick for permission, and he received a large bulk of Kubrick’s 17 hours’ worth of footage. @StanleyKubrick via Twitter “Beauty And The Beast” And “Sleeping Beauty” Who knew animators reuse scenes, too? That’s what Disney did with its 1991 hit Beauty and the Beast. In 1959, Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) and Prince Philip danced together in Sleeping Beauty. It was such a beautiful dance sequence that Disney recreated the scene, frame by frame, for Beauty and the Beast’s ending scene. Fanpop “Transformers” And “Pearl Harbor” These films are a different case because they both had the same director, Michael Bay. But, it’s still pretty noticeable when Bay reused a piece of footage of an aircraft carrier from Pearl Harbor for Transformers. Of course, the duplicate scene was edited using computer-generated imaging (CGI) to make the ship appear era-appropriate, but this technique was still probably cheaper than shooting a new scene. Joblo via says.com “Back To The Future Part II” And “Back To The Future” Arguably the best trilogy in film history, it makes sense why Back to the Future Part II reused scenes from the first film for consistency. However, director Robert Zemeckis also needed to work around production changes, including Elisabeth Shue replacing Claudia Wells as Marty McFly’s girlfriend. Crispin Glover also didn’t commit to the sequel, but Zemeckis reused scenes featuring Glover from the first film, resulting in a full-blown lawsuit.
