Check out the most intriguing facts about movies:
. 1.Saving Private Ryan is too realistic
Some battle scenes were too realistic to people who actually had participated in the war. Saving Private Ryan caused post-traumatic stress disorders in veterans.
2.Deadpool forgot a bag of weapons in a taxi for a reason.
Because the Deadpool budget was reduced by $7 million at the very last moment before production, the main character had to leave a bag of weapons in the taxi. This made the next scene way cheaper.
3.The Hulk is green because of a printer glitch.
Few people can imagine this monster in a different color, but initially, Stan Lee saw Hulk as a gray monster (in order to exclude all ethnic groups). But the printer made a mistake and printed The Hulk green which Stan Lee really loved.
4.The Hobbit used all the gold paint in New Zealand.
There was so much gold used in the scenes with Smaug that there wasn’t enough gold paint in New Zealand to fulfil their needs, so more had to be transported from Germany.
5.The fight scene in Skyfall was shot on a real moving train.
Daniel Craig really didn’t want a stunt to shoot this scene, so he did it all by himself on the roof of a moving train. A real James Bond!
6. One more interesting fact about James Bond…
The most famous scene in all Bond movies was shot through a gun barrel, and more than that, Maurice Binder (the title designer) made it up at the very last moment, 20 minutes before meeting with producers. Believe it or not, the last minutes before a deadline are often very productive in cinema.
7.The made-up language in The Fifth Element
The strange language that Leeloo spoke was made up by Luc Besson. But Mila Jovovich didn’t just make her language more diverse, she was also able to speak it with the director.
8.Real squirrels were used in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Tim Burton decided to take 40 real squirrels and teach them to do tricks on their own.
9.In The Departed, Jack Nicholson scared Leo DiCaprio with a real gun.
When the characters finally met in one of the film’s key scenes, Nicholson took a gun which neither DiCaprio nor Martin Scorsese expected. So Leo’s reaction in the scene wasn’t fake. Jack Nicholson himself explained that he felt the scene didn’t feel dynamic enough.
10.In Pulp Fiction, the adrenaline shot was filmed in reverse.
It’s not that easy to hit the right spot with a needle. So, Quentin Tarantino decided to shoot the famous episode this way: first, John Travolta stuck the needle in Uma Thurman’s chest, and then he took it out as if he was taking a swing. This is how one of the most famous moments in this masterpiece was made.
