Most Interesting Imdb Trivia
- •Who Framed Roger RabbitWhen Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation for very little viewer benefit. Today, "Bump the Lamp" is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most viewers or guests will never notice it.
- •Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part 2According to Tom Felton, Voldemort awkwardly hugging Draco was not scripted but an improvisation by Ralph Fiennes. Felton's reactions of stopping dead in his tracks not knowing what to do is genuine.
- •Batman BeginsWhile shooting on the streets of Chicago, a person accidentally crashed into the Batmobile. The driver was apparently drunk, and said he hit the car in a state of panic, believing the Dark Knight's vehicle to be an invading alien spacecraft.
- •Napoleon DynamiteJon Heder was paid $1,000 to play Napoleon Dynamite. The movie grossed over $40,000,000 in the United States.
- •Moonrise KingdomThe controversial dance scene on the beach was saved for the very end of filming, so that the two young actors would be comfortable around each other, and was done on a closed set (just the two actors, the director, and the cameraman).
- •Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)Given the unusual style of filming long takes, Edward Norton and Michael Keaton kept a running tally of flubs made by the actors. Emma Stone made the most mistakes; Zach Galifianakis made the fewest. He actually did mess up a few lines during the filming, but played his mistakes off well enough that the shots were included in the film.
- •TarzanThe signature "Tarzan yell" is provided by Brian Blessed, the voice of the film's villain Clayton.
- •Back to the FutureThe parts of the script with references to President Ronald Reagan needed to be reviewed by the White House for approval so as not to offend the President. Producers had some concerns over Reagan's reaction to Doc Brown's famous line mocking the improbability of his being President in 1985, but Reagan was said to get a real kick out of it.
- •Django UnchainedWhen Leonardo DiCaprio's character Calvin Candie smashes the palm of his hand on the dinner table, the actor accidentally struck a chunk of the plaster skull he had just broken and really began to bleed. DiCaprio ignored it, stayed in character, and continued with the scene. Tarantino was so impressed that he used this take in the final print, and when he called cut, the room erupted in a standing ovation.
