18 Mind-Boggling Facts about Hollywood Movies You May Not Know

We all are a big fan of Hollywood movies and can watch some movies over and over again. More often than not most of the Hollywood movies carry a subtle message or fun fact that we tend to overlook even after watching the same movie many times. Well here we have some fun facts for you to enjoy and look into:

The total number of “F*” word used in the much famous 2014 movie The Wolf of Wall Street is 569. Apparently, it’s taken from Pi (3.14) number of F* per minute.

For all DiCaprio fan, let’s see if you knew this already – in the movie Django Unchained, DiCaprio broke the glass bowl intentionally making his hands bleed. This scene was never a part of the original script and everyone on the crew was shocked.

We all know this, but for those who don’t – Shirley Henderson or the Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter, was actually 37 years old when she played the character in the Harry Potter series as the ghost of the girl in the bathroom.

Like Stan Lee, Alfred Hitchcock was also known for playing quite a few cameos during his time. He made a total of 39 cameos in 52 movies appearing in photographs, crossing a building etc. This is one of the cameos from a 1963 movie The Birds.

I kind of liked this one since the movie scares me, Hannibal Lector (Anthony Hopkins) does not blink even once throughout the movie Silence of the lambs. Try it!

For all you Die Hard fans, hope this doesn’t dishearten you, but this famous 80s action movie was originally a discarded script of ‘Commando 2’.

If you notice very closely in The Dark Knight, Joker asks Harvey Dent to kill him or join his rank, he actually places his finger in such a way that even if Dent pulled the trigger it would not work. Dent was left with the only option to join his rank. The Dark Knight was the first and the only Batman movie which did not carry the title of “Batman” in it.

I am a true follower of Iron Man and was surprised to see this, in Iron Man (2008), notice the workbench on the left side where Stark is removing his suit and you would a prototype version of Captain America’s shield!

The Pursuit Of Happiness movie is a true story based on the life of Chris Gardner. Chris makes a small cameo at the end of the movie when he walks by Will Smith and his son.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was paid $15 Million for his role in Terminator 2. If you are a true fan then you would know that Arnold only spoke about 700 words in the whole movie including the iconic dialogue “Hasta La Vista Baby”, this alone costs around $85,000.

The nut the following creature in the movie Ice Age is called a ‘scrat’ which is a combination of a squirrel and a rat. Chris Wedge is the voice of the ‘scrat‘ and the director of the movie.

I know of fans who have watched the movie Pulp Fiction countless times, but few have noticed that all the clocks in the movie are stuck on 4:20.

At the start of the movie Fight Club, right after the copyright warning, a second warning flashes for a second which read:

Inception drops a lot of hints that the entire movie may be a dream or entire Cobbs dream to be precise. If you notice in the hotel room where Mal and Cobb spend their anniversary the number 3502 appears. And he keeps seeing the same set of numbers over and over again throughout the movie.

This is really bizarre and I’m sure there must be a logical explanation to this – Marla Singer from Fight Club and Teddy aka John Gammel from ‘Memento‘ share the same phone number.

Avenger star Jemmy Renner was specially trained by the Olympic archers for his role as Clint Barton in the movie The Avengers.

Finding Nemo was a very adorable movie I should say, but did you know that the character Nemo from appeared in the movie Monster’s Inc., two years before Finding Nemo was released.

When James Cameron re-released the 3D version of Titanic in 2012, he made a minor change to one of the scenes in the movie. Cameron quoted on scene revision – “Oh, there is one shot that I fixed. It’s because Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is one of the US’ leading astronomers, sent me quite a snarky email saying that, at that time of year, in that position in the Atlantic in 1912, when Rose is lying on the piece of driftwood and staring up at the stars, that is not the star field she would have seen, and with my reputation as a perfectionist, I should have known that and I should have put the right star field in. So I said, ‘All right, you son of a bitch, send me the right stars for the exact time, 4:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, and I’ll put it in the movie.‘ Here’s the shot that has been changed.”
