The movie Final Destination played a larger role in many people's fear of flying than they'd care to admit. Now, 20(ish) years after its release, star Devon Sawa was boarding a plane when he noticed something ominous about his flight number.
He was boarding the plane on March 17th, the 20th anniversary of Final Destination. His flight number? 3/17.

Some celebrities responded to Sawa, but were more concerned with the timeline than any danger he may have been in.
