To show you how scrupulously some famous movies were made, Bored Panda has collected an eye-opening list of incredible movie details and behind the scenes shots. Scroll down to check out these unique movie facts and let us know in the comments which popular movie surprised you the most!

Deadpool 2

In Deadpool 2, one of the rednecks talking about toilet paper is actually Matt Damon in four hours worth of prosthetic makeup. Most people think being a movie star is easy work, but when you have to play roles like this and sit in a chair for 4 hours just for make up than your real work starts. It makes for very long days by the time you get all of the make up removed after the shoot.


For Interstellar, Christopher Nolan did not want to CGI the farm scenes. So, he purchased a plot of land and planted 500 acres of corn just for the film. After filming, he sold the corn and made back a profit on the land purchase. This was one of the smartest financial decisions from a director or producer for a movie.

Pulp Fiction

Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction (1994) tells Vincent Vega a story. Her acting career, in a story. She was one of five women. After describing the other four…it culminates with a description of Thurman’s character in Kill Bill. What a neat little egg. As she went on to describe the other 4 women you can definitely get a better understand of why she fit these roles soo well.

Terminator 2

Robert Patrick trained to fire a gun without blinking in Terminator 2 in order to appear like a humanoid robot. Although, this was unique to Terminator 2 – Schwarzenegger never did that. It takes a lot of training and time to master a skill like this. The dedication of Robert Patrick for this role is extremely commendable and part of the reason that made this movie such a great movie.


The water planet in Interstellar is a pivotal point in the movie in terms of forcing the audience to understand the duality of timelines across planets; the soundtrack in the background has a prominent ticking noise. These ticks happen every 1.25 seconds. Each tick you hear is a whole day passing on Earth. If 1 day was the same as 1.25 seconds, we would be able to live for thousands of years.

The Incredibles

In the movie “The Incredibles” there is a clearly referenced scene to Die Hard 3, the scene of the phone with Samuel L. Jackson, who also plays Frozono, and the policeman engage in a stand-off of sorts. And the Samuel l. Jackson tentatively picks up the phone/water cup. And you know what happens after that. The resemblance in the scenes is undeniable.

Star Wars: A New Hope

Before technology could alter scenes; producers had to get creative. In Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), all the wide shots of Luke flying across Tatooine in his speeder were achieved by placing a mirror underneath a version of the prop with a motor and wheels. That is one very creative way to hide the wheels and tires from the camera.
