One for moviefreaks: which movies became reality?

This weekend in Brussels a foreign man took is own daughter as a hostage, to get her some treatment for a medical condition. In the newspapers they were talking about the movie "John Q" (starring Denzel washington).

A day later there was this documentary on television about a man who couldn't remember anything that happened longer than seven (!) seconds ago. "memento" came to mind...

And every time I saw the beginning of "Armageddon" (1998), it struck me how the burning Twin Towers looked like the real thing.

Do you know any other movies which became reality?

Difficult one

Network (MGM, 1976). Predicted (accurately) network news becoming entertainment rather than hard news, and reality shows. Not bad for 1976.

Whitney Houston and her receipts:

The movie based on George Orwell's 1984 - Everything about the Bush Administration. But specifically the The Patriot Act and Spying on Americans.

There are scenes in Independence Day that are very similar to some of the scary tv footage of 9/11

I just read somewhere about a movie called "Wag the dog", released a year before Clinton's sex scandal, showing lots of parallels with the whole affair.

Seriously, if there is anyone out there that can help me, it's taken me an hour just to type this message, climbing about on a giant keyboard!
