Nowadays, the movie industry has evolved so much that we rarely question what we see in movies. Whether it’s a flying wizard, a man falling off a cliff and surviving or a talking ape, we rarely question what happens behind-the-scenes as well as the enormous production that these movies go through. So, there is something interesting about seeing how people make the impossible happen. Take a look at the most confusing behind-the-scenes photos that are prone to completely change the way you look at these movies.
Let The Queen Listen To Some iTunes
The movie Marie Antoinette focused on the life of the Queen of France during the 1970s. The role was played by Kirsten Dunst, who did a pretty amazing job with her character. It is said that Marie Antoinette allegedly claimed “let them eat cake”, when she heard about her people starving with no food or bread.
This has never been confirmed though. Yet, there is something hilarious about seeing “The Queen” listening to some music on the computer in this behind-the-scenes photo.
A Not So Vengeful Bride
Quentin Tarantino’s famous Kill Bill was released in 2003, and was taken very well by the public. The film focuses on a pregnant and vengeful bride who has been betrayed. She then goes on a long quest to get revenge while attacking everyone who played a part in her life being destroyed.
Her list of people to get revenge on is full of fellow assassins like she was, including O-Ren Ishii, who was the leader of the deadly group Crazy 88, whose character was played by Lucy Liu. Clearly, the two “enemies” were super friendly to each other behind-the-scenes as this photo shows us.
Breaking The Spell
And because just one behind-the-scenes photo of Harry Potter is not enough, we had to bring this one too! The walls of Hogwarts were full of different spells and little quirks that added that magical feeling whenever we watched Harry Potter.
One of these quirks happened in the library, where Hermione rarely had to worry about placing each book in their right place since the magical shelves did so by themselves. In this picture, we realize that they weren’t so magical after all.
Pan’s Labyrinth was released in 2006, and quickly became one of the most iconic films ever. The horror fantasy movie takes place in the summer of 1944 in Spain, five years after the end of the Spanish Civil War. The whole thing that makes the movie so iconic is that the plot mixes the real world with a mythical situation caused by a mysterious faun creature.
But no matter how much everything looks incredible on screen, a lot happens behind-the-scenes. One of these things is that actors need to eat and cannot skip mealtime as they need to be on their A-game throughout the making of the movie. This picture portrays that moment, but the whole scenario is just hilarious.
A Helping Hand
The Terminator is just one amongst Arnold Schwarznegger’s many great films. But in The Terminator, even though we know that the main character is played by the good old Arnie, looking at this picture makes us a tiny bit sad for some reason.
The idea of Schwarzenegger being a cyborg with metallic body parts cannot be taken away, but this picture ruins it all. It seems like the metallic limbs were never a part of a costume that was then modified with some great CGI. According to this, a member of the crew was actually the one holding the metallic hand while sitting on the floor and adding it to the camera frame.
Just A Cardboard Cutout
Producers from all over the world go to great lengths to create something that looks real for their viewers. While we sit back, relax and binge watch our favorite films and series, a whole production set is put into what we believe is real but is nothing but an illusion created by some pretty great professionals.
As we can see here, in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, instead of the crew investing in some crazy expensive and heavy jewels in a trunk, they simply opted to make use of a cardboard cut that worked perfectly. No matter what we say, none of us realized it when we watched the movie!
