TRIVIA---James Cameron's ALIENS is set in 2079, so to get a futuristic watch for Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Cameron got automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, who designed the DeLorean and sports cars for Ferrari and Aston Martin, to design an appropriate watch. Giugiaro chose a Seiko 7A28 watch and modified it, including adding a "control panel" to the right side of the Seiko.
In another movie with a Seiko and DeLorean connection, in BACK TO THE FUTURE, Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) wore a standard Seiko A826 Time Trainer watch, and his time machine was a modified DeLorean.

TRIVIA---THE NAKED GUN 33 1/3: THE FINAL INSULT's train station shootout scene with Lt. Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) was a parody of THE UNTOUCHABLES train shootout scene with Federal agent Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner). THE UNTOUCHABLES movie was based on the 1950s tv series THE UNTOUCHABLES with Robert Stack playing Eliot Ness. Robert Stack was the original choice to play Lt. Frank Drebin in the tv series POLICE SQUAD! which led to THE NAKED GUN movies, but Stack turned the role down and Nielsen was chosen.
If Stack had agreed to star in POLICE SQUAD!, he could have played Drebin in THE FINAL INSULT, who was a parody of Costner's Eliot Ness, who was based on Stack's Eliot Ness.
