Plenty of actors out there trying to make there first big break have reason to be seriously jealous of these props because they have been in way more movies than it might first appear.

So, if you want to know which object has managed to flit between Back to the Future and Alien, or how a car has slotted itself into a superhero movie, a Western, and a horror, check out the list below!

8. 'True Lies' and 'Avengers'

Most of the planes in the first Avengers movie are CGI, but the one that Hulk smashes to smithereens in his fight with Thor most definitely is. Funnily enough, full scale replicas of fighter aircraft aren’t all that common and this plane is the same prop that Arnold Schwarzenegger piloted in True Lies with a new lick of paint. Turns out getting a good role in the industry is tough, even if you are a plane.

7. 'Starship Troopers,' 'Firefly,' and 'Planet of the Apes'

The space marine costumes were excellent value for money for Fox because they were dug out of the cupboard and dusted off for both Firefly and Planet of the Apes. It's amazing what a new paint job can do!

6. 'Married with Children,' 'Modern Family,' 'Charmed,' 'That '70s Show,' and 'Desperate Housewives'

This must be one enthralling newspaper because it's been in more sitcoms than Tom Poston!

5. 'Back to the Future' and 'Alien'

'Mr. Fusion,' the device that powered people's homes in Back to the Future, was actually a Krups coffee grinder, but it's sleek design made it a good enough futuristic prop for it too sneak into Alien too!

4. 'Terminator 2' and 'Predator'

That gun that T2 was exterminating the Cyberdyne headquarters with actually knew Arnie from another movie. If you look closely at the shot on the right, the dude next to Arnie is rocking exactly the same gun. The only difference is that the support strap and handle has been removed.

3. 'Spider-Man,' 'Drag Me To Hell,' 'The Quick and the Dead,' 'Evil Dead,' and 'Army of Darkness'

Sam Raimi's 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 that he drove during his college days has become something of a good luck charm and he tries his utmost to sneak it into all of his movies. The most impressive feat by far being in the Western 'The Quick and the Dead' where he hid it under a complex wagon chassis. That's dedication!

2. 'Kill Bill' and 'Sin City'

Uma Thurman's Hattori Hanzo sword in Kill Bill was far too valuable to be put into retirement and it was passed on to Devon Aoki in Sin City.

1. 'Star Trek' and 'Bewitched'

Tiny little futuristic cars don't come around every day and that's why Star Trek and Bewitched shared one, how cute.

Have you spotted a prop in more than one movie before?
