James Earl Jones was offered $5,000 to do the voice of Darth Vader in 1977.

His agent told him to "take the money and run"

I saw an interview before with Legendary Lucasfilm sound designer Ben Burtt.

He struggled to come up with the sound for the big bastard rolling ball scene in Indiana jones, he had ended up dangling a microphone out of his car window on a hill with gravel on , turned the engine off and let it roll down the hill.


The sound he used for a lightsabre is an old cinema projector thingy

When making the film The Lord of the rings the cast often had to fly to remote shoot locations by helicopter. Sean Bean (Boromir) was afraid of flying, and would only do it when absolutely necessary. When they were shooting the scenes of the Fellowship crossing the snowy mountains, he'd spend two hours every morning, climbing from the base of the mountain, to the set near the top, already dressed as Boromir. The crew being flown up, could see him from their helicopters.

Sylvester Stallone wanted to make sure the boxing scenes looked real in Rocky IV, so he instructed Dolph Lundgren to actually hit him. A punch to the chest left Stallone in intensive care for four days.

Tom sellecks mustach grows at a rate of 2mm per week.
If he hadn't had ever trimmed it from 3 men and a little rat, his tash would stretch round the world 14 times

If Doc Brown hadn't slipped , and bumped his head, thus not resulting in the vision of the flux compacitor, then he wouldnt have come up with the time machine.
Meaning we would have been robbed of the greatest movie of all time in back to the future.

However, the clock tower would still be fucked and Biff would still be a c**t.

When Anakin Skywalker built C3P0 , he programmed him to be fluent in "over 6 million forms of communication" , although he never could get the hang of the welsh language.

A sequel was proposed for The Commitments which would have reunited the band in New York City but the idea never materialised.

In Poltergeist (1982) the skeletons used in the pool scene were actual skeletons as it was cheaper to use real ones rather than fakes.

When Seth McFarlane was shooting "A Million Ways To Die In The West" (2014), Ewan McGregor was shooting "Jane Got A Gun" (2015) at the same location. And since he was already in make-up, he was happy to cooperate and made a cameo in Seth's movie.

O.J. Simpson almost played the part of the Terminator but James Cameron thought his persona was "too pleasant" to portray such a dark character.

The cast of this WWII classic - and Christmas Day TV staple - includes one genuine WWII Prisoner of War. During the conflict Donald Pleasence, who plays RAF Flight Lieutenant Colin Blythe, had been shot down at a raid on Agenville and imprisoned for a year in a Stalag Luft, where he produced and acted in plays. That's one way to bring a whole new level of authenticity to a role.
