The movies we all know and love have hidden secrets that make the movie that much more strange and interesting. Whether the cause is through the cast or later figured out after the movie is over, these facts may have you changing your opinion on it in a good or bad way.
1. Titanic (2012)
Though one of the most historic movies ever, on the re-release, James Cameron was approached by a famous astronomer, Neil deGrasse Tyson, who pointed out that the stars did not align the way they should have on the night the Titanic sank. James Cameron, a stickler for authenticity, tweaked the sky in the re-release to be accurate to the night of the disaster.
2. V for Vendetta (2006)
In this classic film, fans pointed out that the letter “V” had been hidden throughout the movie. Fans claim that you can freeze-frame at almost any point in the film and find a V that was intentionally placed there.
3. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008)
This sad story is based on a boy placed in a concentration camp during the Holocaust, and an innocent boy on the outside who has no idea what truly goes on inside the prison camp. The director thought that the acting would be better if the kids had very little knowledge of the Holocaust so they could act more authentically in their scenes.
4. Toy Story (1995)
The Toy Story directors thought it would be a good idea to include Easter eggs throughout the rest of the Pixar movies. One of those items is a pizza truck that is then shown in every Pixar movie ever created from that point on.
5. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Believe it or not, for the most part, many things in this movie are entirely accurate. Not only are many of these outrageous events true — including swallowing a goldfish, sinking a yacht in the middle of the ocean, and scamming millions of people — but the real Jordan Belfort is the one who welcomes Leonardo DiCaprio onto the stage at the end of the movie.
6. The Dark Knight Rises (2008)
Towards the end of this movie, there is a gathering for the inauguration of the statue of Batman. During this scene, if you look closely enough, you can see the Joker’s smile and the rest of his face within the staircase and the group of people. This was an intentional tribute to the previous film’s Joker, played by Health Ledger, who had passed away.
7. John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)
The John Wick movies are action-packed films with incredible amounts of combat. The fighting is intense, and Keanu Reeves, who plays John Wick, does about 95% of the stunts and fight scenes by himself; he even suffered injuries during the filming.
8. The Shining (1980)
This Stephen King book-turned-horror movie revolves around a writer who becomes insane and violent towards his family. To get Jack Nicholson in the right mood for his agitated character, the directors only fed Nicholson cheese sandwiches, his least favorite food.
9. Inception (2010)
This brilliant film is about a thief who can enter people’s dreams to steal secrets from their subconscious. The script took the writer, Christopher Nolan, ten years to complete due to his fascination and studies into the nature of dreaming.
10. Goodfellas (1990)
A beautifully directed film by Martin Scorsese, this movie centers around Italian mobsters. In one of the scenes where Robert De Niro’s character needed to count fake money, he could not get a feel for the fake money’s texture. To solve this, the prop manager withdrew a few thousand dollars that De Niro used during filming.
