Movies that recylce clips or shots from other movies...

I was just watching "Cube: Zero"....and they had a shot where a guy is going down an elevator, and I realized that they took the shots of the elevator going down and putting on it's brakes directly from the elevator scenes in "Resident Evil".

I know that the film "Raptor" actually recycles entire scenes from "Carnosaur" using the same actors to film new scenes, but playing DIFFERENT characters! Follow me?

Tremors 3 uses scenes of the graboids bursting out of the ground from Part 1.

The film "Space Mutiny" used extensive footage from Battlestar Galactica.

I'm struggling to think but...

There's a movie which uses an exterior shot of the B747 from Executive Decision. I think it may be in the movie After the Sunset (or at least it's deleted scenes).

The reason I think this is that the airline was branded Oceanic, which was a fictitious brand created for the movie in 1995.

the Limey contains flashback scenes that were pulled from one of Terrence Stamp's earlier roles in Poor Cow (1967)

The airplane crash sequence from Cliffhanger has been used in a bunch of low-budget action flicks.

One that immediately comes to mind is Extreme Limits, which also uses footage from Narrow Margin and The Long Kiss Goodnight.

I think it is (or was) a fairly common practice.

i have noticed on a few fox movies recently, they use the stock footage of a plane flying from the pilot of the tv show 24.
also, the plane shot in "planes trains and autombiles" is the shot from airplane!

When the shark dies at the end of Jaws 4 the death scene for the original Jaws is used.

The Limey uses footage from an old Terrence Stamp movie.

Superman II recycled some flying shots from Superman I.

I've seen several movies that uses 'Oceanic' as it's airline. All the titles escape me at the moment but I'm sure I've seen at least three that used that same airline name.

There's been a recent, quite popular use of Oceanic. You should be able to figure it out by visiting this webpage:

STAR TREK: GENERATIONS used the same exploding Bird of Prey shot that was used in STAR TREK VI.

There are tons of these. I remember when it was released, news stories about the clips that were used in Raiders of the Lost Ark as cost cutting measures, but also because of practicality. The only two I remember were that the airplane shots (going to Asia) were from Lost Horizon (70s version) and the car pulling up to Indy's house (right before he packs his suitcase) was from The Great Gatsby (70s version) (not absolutely certain about the movie, but I remember it wasn't shot for RotLA).

Shots from Tora! Tora! Tora! were used extensively in a movie about WWII from the 70s, but I don't remember which one (Final Countdown, maybe?).

I know it's a cost cutting measure, but when I notice it in a movie, it really pulls me out of the film and I start thinking about the other movie that it's from.

A lot of the 1970's Godzilla movies made extensive use of recycled effects footage.

Every time I see a plane landing on a runway without any other scenery that would tie it to the movie, I wonder if it's been in any other movies.

This is one of the very few examples of this technique being used creatively, rather than just as a cost-cutting measure on the part of the film makers. Seeing Stamp as his younger self, with his (now) dead daughter adds a lot of depth to this movie.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) reused a lot of the U.S.S. Enterprise in space drydock footage from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).

That was shameless, seriously...

How hard is it to blow up another model, especially for the very next film in the series?

A few that come to mind:

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, obviously.

Blade Runner, the theatrical release uses a scene from The Shining.

For the life of me I cannot remember the name of the movie, but some cheesy sci-fi flick re-used massive amounts of the spacecraft scenes from Battle Beyond the Stars.

And speaking of Star Trek, the "Genesis Effect" made an appearance in II, III, and IV. It may have been in VI too, but I can't remember. Also Spock's Death was recapped at the beginning of III. There was alot of reused footage in that series.
