Recycling movie props is a common practice in Hollywood. It’s a time-saving, cost-efficient strategy—plus, most audiences never even notice that they've been reused. For the most part, props appear so briefly, or in such different contexts, that it can be difficult for even the sharpest-eyed film buffs to spot them. Fortunately, Screen Rant has compiled a list of 10 films that reused props from earlier films. 

From the helmets that appear in Starship Troopers (1997), Firefly (2002), and Planet of the Apes (1991), to the gun fired by Arnold Schwarzenegger in both Terminator 2 (1991) and Predator (1987), Screen Rant breaks down some of the most fascinating stories of recycled props. Check it out above.
