We all have our favorite movies, and it’s usually pretty fun to learn even more about a film that means so much to us.
Sometimes, learning more about what happened behind the scenes can even change how you look at a movie entirely.
It’s just always amazing to learn something new about a movie that you know so well!
These 10 behind the scenes facts are about some of your favorite films: Kill Bill, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and more.
1. John Wick had a different name.
The film was originally called Scorn, but Keanu Reeves kept forgetting the name of the movie in interviews, so they changed it for him.
2. Michael B. Jordan was committed.
The actor chose to wear Killmonger’s scars the entire time he filmed Black Panther.
He said he was inspired by Denzel Washington’s decision to wear his scars while filming Glory.
3. Shooting Kill Bill was put on pause.
Uma Thurman got pregnant, and director Quentin Tarantino made the choice to put filming on pause instead of recasting her.
4. Indiana Jones changed ratings.
Seriously: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is the actual reason why the PG-13 rating exists now.
5. Frank Sinatra was almost in Die Hard.
That’s right: the studio wanted Ol’ Blue Eyes for the role of John McClaine, even though he was 73 at the time.
6. Chris Evans was almost in Deadpool 2.
But he wouldn’t have played Captain America! He would have played Human Torch.
7. Daniel Craig was enthusiastic.
The actor cut off part of his finger while filming Quantum of Solace! No, not on purpose. 🙂
8. Michelle Yeoh also got hurt.
She tore her ACL while filming Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but kept doing her own stunts anyway.
9. Independence Day had an agenda.
The team behind this Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum film created the entire story around the name of the movie.
They wanted to beat Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks! and realized their movie would have to be released in July, one month before Burton’s.
10. Sigourney Weaver is really, really good.
She actually made that “impossible” over-the-shoulder basketball shot in Alien Resurrection.
Okay, what do you think? Any of these surprise you?
