Star Trek V The Final Frontier
Lights, Camera, Action! C is for close call.
Some say Star Trek V directed by William Shatner nearly killed off the movie franchise, lucky for us trek survived.

C is also for Connerys Crusades who you might say had a lucky escape. Uh ohh.... Apparently Sean Connery was filming Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade at the time saving him from having to play the pointy eared Sybok, Mr Spock's brother in Star Trek V.
