20 Amazing Movie Secrets That Will Blow Your Mind


For all the action, mistakes, easter eggs
and cameos in blockbuster movies, the drama and comedy behind the scenes can be just as
awesome. We’re changing things up, and giving you a rapid fire dose of movie trivia you
never thought to look for. Screen Rant presents: Know Your Movies: 20 Amazing Movie Secrets
That Will Blow Your Mind! Jurassic World The product placement in the Jurassic Park
sequel stuck out like a sore thumb – but it wasn’t the studio’s work. The director actually
requested the sponsors, claiming that if the park were opened today, every part of it would
be branded. The Avengers: Age of Ultron The final battle is set in Sokovia, but it
was filmed at a London police training college. The statue in the town square was given a
fake beard, since it’s a well-known monument to Robert Peel, the inventor of the modern
police force, and the reason British cops are still called “bobbies.” Furious Seven (NOT “7”) The director James Wan (“Juan”) confused everyone
when he said that the seven in the title was the WORD, not the movie’s place in the series.
Why? Apparently the movie’s title is actually a tribute to the classic Japanese movie Seven
Samurai, with Wan seeing Dominic Toretto and his team as Hollywood’s modern – horsepowered
– Samurai. The Martian The secret NASA mission to save a stranded
astronaut is given the title “Project Elrond,” a reference to a secret meeting in The Lord
of the Rings. When Ridley Scott realized Sean Bean was actually IN that movie scene, and
would also explain the name in this film, he wanted to change it. But the crew demanded
it stay, since the joke was actually a hilarious coincidence. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
Tom Cruise is famous for doing his own massive stunts, climbing skyscrapers or hanging onto
an airplane. But the actor’s training even covers the stunt driving in Rogue Nation.
It wasn’t to meet the star’s demands, either – the stunt coordinator claimed he didn’t
have a stunt driver who was better than Cruise. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Back in 1983, when interviewed about Return
Of The Jedi, Mark Hamill gave an interview to TV-AM in the UK and told reporters George
Lucas spoke of bringing Luke Skywalker back as an Obi-Wan type character training a new
generation of Jedi in Episode VII. He also said Episode VII wouldn’t happen until 2011… Ant-Man Any superhero actor has to hit the gym before
shooting their scenes, but apparently, Paul Rudd was more committed to getting into shape
than Marvel expected. When they started shooting, the Ant-Man costume had to be altered to compensate
for Rudd’s added muscle and lost fat. And an unscripted shirtless scene was added shortly
after. Mad Max: Fury Road The villain of Fury Road is larger than life
in every way – except for the weapon he seems to be praying to. That’s an authentic Australian
waddy, a weapon used as recently as World War I. When the actor’s mother-in-law left
it to him, he asked the director to work it into the movie, and the rest is history. Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel may be churning out blockbusters, but
they don’t spend money if they don’t have to. The massive set constructed for the Kyln
prison in Guardians of the Galaxy was so expensive to build, the studio only agreed to foot the
bill after planning to melt down all the steel after filming, and sell it back to the supplier. Captain America: The Winter Soldier The Nick Fury chase scene through city streets
was a hit with fans because it actually seemed realistic – but they didn’t know just how
realistic it was. The sequence was based on a 2010 Brazilian police chase that looks exactly
the same, and the directors even played the police video as part of their original pitch
to Marvel. The LEGO Movie A major highlight of the movie is Liam Neeson’s
role as both Good Cop and Bad Cop. The directors wanted to record them separately, but Neeson
thought it would be better to rapidly switch from one to the other. The result was a crazed,
manic split-personality filled with improvisation – and fans loved every second. X-Men: Days of Future Past The movie that rebooted the X-Men movie universe
had it all: new mutants, returning favorites… even a romance between Wolverine and Storm.
The future scene was deleted, but it showed the movie versions of the heroes finally gave
in to their attraction like they had multiple times in the comics. Maybe the second time
is the charm. Dawn of the Planet of The Apes The movie’s original ending saw the apes watching
as battleships approached in San Francisco Bay, promising an imminent war. Director Matt
Reeves decided to go with a more emotional ending between the movie’s ape and human leads.
It’s a incredible ending scene, even though it was filmed weeks before release, Reeves
directing via Skype, and a stand-in for Andy Serkis’ actually on set. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 It may have killed Sony’s solo Spider-Man
series, but the original ending would have had fans talking for years. Peter’s father
Richard Parker coming back from the dead is one thing, but showing Venom in OsCorp’s basement
– along with the frozen head of Norman Osborn – leaves every fan with unanswered questions
of what would have come next. Gone Girl In all the suspense and twists and turns of
this story, audiences probably missed some time-consuming CG effects. According to director
David Fincher, with the number and variety of wigs that star Rosamund Pike had to wear,
there isn’t a single shot of her in the movie that didn’t require a special effects team
to retouch her hairline. Who knew to even look? Man of Steel When Henry Cavill showed up for his Superman
screen test, the prototype costume wasn’t available – so they used the classic Christopher
Reeve version instead. When Cavill stepped out of wardrobe in the brightly coloured,
outdated suit with bright red underwear, and everyone on set grew quiet, he knew he had
found the man for the job. Interstellar The sprawling corn field used in just a few
scenes required 500 acres to be planted and grown. It might sound like insanity on Christopher
Nolan’s part, but when shooting wrapped, the corn was sold – for a hefty profit. Frozen Most fans know this Disney hit is based on
“The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen. But the main characters’ names are no coincidence.
Say them out loud fast enough, and “Hans, Kristoff, Anna, Sven” is clearly a play on
the author’s name that few will catch on their own. Jurassic Park Director Steven Spielberg had young actresses
record blood-curdling screams to see how they’d handle the movie’s terrifying twists. When
he played actress Ariana Richards’ tape, and it was the only recorded Scream to raise his
wife from bed in a panic, he realized he had found his Lex. Those are some of our favorite mind blowing
