Logan (2017)

Trivia: Lennie Loftin plays Jackson in this film, the land developer trying to muscle the Munson family off their ranch by sabotaging their water supply. In 3:10 to Yuma he played the very similar role of Hollander, a land owner trying to muscle the Evans family off their ranch by cutting off their water supply. Both films were directed by James Mangold.

Alien (1979)

Trivia: In the chest-bursting scene, the actors had a good idea of what was going to happen, but were unprepared for the amount of stage blood that would be used. According to Ridley Scott, he knew it would be too time consuming to clean the mostly white set and re-shoot the scene, so he captured the creature bursting from Kane's chest in one take. Veronica Cartwright was not expecting to be sprayed directly in the face with stage blood so her reaction is genuine. Tom Skerritt similarly was not expecting such a gory scene and his stunned expression when the creature first emerges is also genuine.
