9 Movie Facts That Will Astound Even the Most Die-Hard Fans

It’s always exciting to find out what pure magic lies under the surface. And, in fact, certain performers may have made a significant contribution to the overall film. Some people can completely alter the storyline just by improvising. In other occasions, filmmakers show us some of their additional skills in a shot or two. 

Bright Side has discovered some amusing statistics that enable us to see behind the curtain and see what goes into making a fantastic film. 

1. Michael Jackson wanted to purchase Marvel so that he could play Spider-Man in the film. 

Michael Jackson was ecstatic to be cast in Spider-Man. For that reason, he was truly interested in purchasing Marvel. Owning the firm, on the other hand, would never allow him to play the role. He’d have to be the director as well to do this. Anyway, he was unable to get the rights to Marvel, and we all watched Tobey Maguire portray the famed superhero. 

2. There is a rigorous no-blinking rule in the Terminator  

While filming the first Terminator movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger adopted a rigorous no-blinking policy. Machines, he believed, would never blink. It was, nevertheless, quite difficult to avoid blinking. “We made blunders in the first movie when I did blink,” the actor said. “And then, when we came to the second film, I told Jim [Cameron], ‘There’s no space for errors.'” There will never be any blinking.'” It was the proper decision. In fact, the fact that he resembles a walking brick wall added to the film’s scary atmosphere. 

3. In The Mask, Jim Carrey paid respect to his mother. 

Jim Carrey’s portrayal of The Mask has become one of his most famous roles. However, few people are aware that the bright yellow outfit was created at the actor’s request by costume designers. Carrey received both of his parents’ backing when he began stand-up at the age of 16. His mother made him a yellow polyester suit with tails, but the performance he wore it to was a flop. Carrey, on the other hand, was happy for the chance and subsequently thanked his mother for all of her help in pursuing his aspirations. 

4. The cat of the Godfather almost destroyed the moment. 

Francis Ford Coppola had no intention of shooting Don Corleone with a cat at first. “I noticed the cat racing around the studio and grabbed it and handed it to him without saying anything,” the director said. Marlon Brando was unconcerned. Because he seemed to like animals, the cat became a part of the scenario, nearly ruining it! The sound team couldn’t comprehend a word of Brando’s lines because it was so loud. They were even considering using subtitles. On the original soundtrack, you can still hear this wonderful purring. 

5. James Cameron personally created Kate Winslet’s naked picture in Titanic.

Despite his numerous abilities, Leonardo DiCaprio was not the artist who created the movie’s naked Kate Winslet drawing. The artist who did it was director James Cameron. Since then, the actress has been tormented by the photograph. One admirer even gave Winslet a copy of the nude photo and requested her to sign it at the Divergent premiere in Los Angeles. In 2011, the original portrait was auctioned for $16,000. 

6. Prior to filming The Fast and the Furious, Michelle Rodriguez did not have her driver’s license. 

Prior to the creation of the first film, Michelle Rodriguez did not have her license. So she had to learn how to do it on stage and acquire her Fast and Furious license officially. When she started shooting the series, she was 22 years old. 

7. Thor: Ragnarok was 80 percent improvised. 

Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, said that 80 percent of the film was improvised. “My working approach is that I’ll frequently be behind the camera or very close to it, barking commands like, ‘Say this, say this!’ ‘Say it like this!’ I’m going to give Anthony Hopkins a direct line reading. “I don’t give a damn,” Waititi stated. Perhaps he wanted to create an environment in which individuals felt free to share their thoughts as if they were among old friends. And the end product was spectacular. 

8. During the production of Into the Woods, Emily Blunt rescued Meryl Streep. 

Emily Blunt prevented Meryl Streep from collapsing on stage during an Into the Woods practice. On The Late Show, Blunt stated, “Meryl Streep’s foot got hooked in her cloak, and we just began to watch her slowly drop head-first into the concrete floor.” The actress, who was pregnant at the moment, sprang and grabbed Streep without hesitation. 

9. Throughout the Harry Potter films, Daniel Radcliffe wore through hundreds of wands and spectacles. 

Daniel Radcliffe wore out 60-70 wands on his own while filming the Harry Potter movie. In fact, there are no two wands or glasses in any movie that are similar. During the shooting, he went through 160 pairs of them. As a result, they’ve all altered much more often than we could have imagined. 

What notable movie facts did we overlook? Do you have any interesting nuggets that only diehard fans would know about? Please post them in the comments section below. We’d like to hear some more intriguing tales.

Sigourney Weaver is coming back for Avatar 2 CRAZY!

In the first Avatar, Weaver’s scientist character died, but now she’s back as the protagonists’ adopted Na’vi daughter.

We were all surprised when we heard about 17 billion years ago that Sigourney Weaver would be back for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels (even more so than with the idea of there being multiple Avatar sequels). But now that we know how Weaver is going to come back, we’re even more confused.

AVATAR

Empire magazine has said that Weaver will play a completely different character in Avatar: The Way of Water. In the first movie, she played Dr. Grace Augustine, the creator of the Human-Na’vi switcheroo Avatar Program, who died at the end. And no, it’s not a human. It’s Jake and Neytiri’s daughter, who is about to turn 16.

Weaver will play Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted daughter. It looks like we’ll meet a lot of Jake and Neytiri’s family in The Way of Water. Weaver told Empire what it was like to play a digitized blue teenager, “I think we all pretty much remember how we felt when we were that age.” “Oh, yes, I do. When I was 11, I was 5’10” or 5’11” tall. I was sure Kiri would feel uncomfortable a lot of the time. She wants to find out who she is. When Jim gave me that task, I was thrilled.

Now, adults play children all the time, especially in the world of voice acting, and at least one of the photos Empire released of Kiri makes it look like Weaver will also show up as Dr. Augustine again in some way, probably through old footage. But knowing that the Na’vi are mostly brought to life by fancy mocap rigs, it will be strange to see Weaver’s physical performance put on a teenager. Even though he is a blue alien teen with long arms and legs, he is still a teen.

The movie Avatar: The Way of Water will come out in December 2022.

Disney will show new scenes from “Avatar: The Way of Water” 

Disney started its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona today with 12 minutes of footage from July’s Marvel fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder. Throughout the show, Disney showed trailers and looks at its other upcoming movies, including four never-before-seen scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.

Before the Thor footage, Disney’s Head of Global Theatrical Distribution Tony Chambers talked about the importance of immersive storytelling and the studio’s “robust, diverse slate.” This was followed by about 60 minutes of footage that was introduced by EMEA Head of Theatrical Distribution Nick Rush and EMEA Head of Studio Marketing Lee Jury.

There were prerecorded messages from people like Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who said, “It feels like we’re just getting started, even after 14 years.” As he introduced the Love And Thunder scenes, Thor star Chris Hemsworth said he wished he was in Barcelona, where the sangria “always tastes better.”

Harrison Ford sent a video for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5, saying that it had been 13 years since the last movie and that it was “time to put on the fedora and crack the whip.”

We also saw parts of Haunted Mansion, Pixar’s Elemental and Strange World, and the ensemble Amsterdam, which was directed by David O. Russell for New Regency.

Sam Mendes sent a video about Empire Of Light by Searchlight. The director of 1917 said that after making that movie, he wrote this one during lockdown. He said it was a “extremely personal story” about music, movies, and finding love in strange places.

Rebecca Kearey, the international head of Searchlight, showed a trailer for See How They Run, which stars Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan, and a teaser for The Banshees of Inisherin, which stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, directed by Martin McDonagh. Searchlight also showed the first scene of Chevalier, which is about the son of an African slave and a French plantation owner who grows up to be a famous composer in France.

The next movie by Thor director Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, got an eight-minute sneak peek. The movie is about the American Samoa soccer team. In 2001, they lost to Australia 31-0, which was the worst loss in World Cup history. Michael Fassbender takes over as their new coach.

Disney’s show ended with a visit from Avatar producer Jon Landau, who flew from New Zealand to Barcelona to talk about the next movie in the series. He said that Avatar: The Way of Water was in the final stages of post-production and that it was important to be in Barcelona “to show our support for the exhibition community.”

Landau said that the strength of James Cameron’s scripts is that they have universal themes. “There is nothing more relatable than family,” he said before showing a message from Cameron.

Cameron from New Zealand said that the people working on Avatar were “pushing the limits even further… Every shot is made for the biggest screen and best resolution that can be achieved… I think this is what people want.” He also said, “Our business is not going away.”

Sigourney Weaver Reveals Her Unconventional Role in ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Weaver will portray Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive child.

Many pondered what type of role Sigourney Weaver would have in the sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar after the death of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, who was the leader of the Avatar Program in the previous film. Finally, in an Empire Magazine exclusive, Weaver shared insights about the role she will portray in Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as a new photograph from the film.

Weaver announced to Empire Magazine that she would play Kiri, the adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa), in the film. “I believe we all remember what we were experiencing as teens,” Weaver told Empire Magazine exclusively. “I most definitely do. When I was 11, I was 5′ 10″ or 5′ 11″. I had a strong feeling Kiri would be uncomfortable a lot of the time. She’s trying to figure out who she is. Jim’s assignment of that task excited me.”

A fresh picture, which adds to the character’s mystery, has also been unveiled, hinting at some type of link that Kiri would have with Grace. Kiri is seen inside a lab, staring at a monitor with a recording of Grace on it. Despite not being biologically connected to Jake and Neytiri, Kiri seems to have human traits that other Na’vi do not have, such as five digits and eyebrows, adding to the character’s mystery.

Empire exclusive

With an obvious link between the two, as well as both characters being performed by the same actor, viewers can only guess on how significant Kiri’s involvement will be in the plot. The character will also appear on a subscriber-exclusive cover of Empire Magazine, which depicts her swimming underwater appreciating Pandora’s aquatic life, as shown in the first teaser.

Weaver and Cameron will work together again for Avatar: The Way of Water, having previously played Ellen Ripley in Aliens and Grace in the first Avatar film. Along with Weaver, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the man responsible for Grace’s death, in the sequel. Quaritch, like Weaver’s character, perished in the first film, fueling curiosity regarding his participation in Avatar: The Way of Water. While the roles of both actors remain unknown, fan speculation may continue until the highly anticipated film is released later this year.

On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively in cinemas.
