12 Times Movie Scenes Were Accidentally Created

Every movie has to go through an extensive procedure before its completed. From the idea to production, the process is definitely not easy. But at times there are scenes that are not actually scripted, yet they make the final cut. That’s because they’re simply good enough and do not mess with the overall plot. So, let’s talk about 12 movie scenes that were accidentally created.

1. The Godfather

Francis Ford Coppola found a cat running around the sets of the movie. So, before shooting the opening scene of the movie, he gave the cat to Marlon Brando, leading to the final cut.

2. Midnight Cowboy

Dustin Hoffman shouted “Hey! I’m walking here!” and it wasn’t scripted. While filming in New York, Hoffman and Jon Voight were about to get hit by a taxi which prompted Hoffman to say that.

3. Django Unchained

While filming, DeCaprio cut his hand by the glass. But he didn’t break character and the blood that we see in the movie is actually his.

4. Captain America: The First Avenger

While filming Captain America: The First Avenger, Hayley Atwell saw Evan shirtless for the first time when he became a super-soldier. Atwell’s Peggy Carter touched Steve Roger’s chest and it was an impulse action. Anyway, the shot made it to the final cut.

5. Thor: The Dark World

In Thor: The Dark World, Chris Hemsworth put his Mjolnir on a coat hanger to be funny. But it remained in the final cut and wasn’t removed.

6. Rocky

During the Rocky training montage, none of the people around Sylvester Stallone were aware that he’s actually shooting a movie. So, when a stall owner tossed him an orange, it was real and not scripted.

7. Blade Runner

During a scene in Blade Runner, a major accident happened. In the scene where Pris meets J.F. Sebastian. Daryl Hannah actually slipped and smashed her elbow through a car window. But she didn’t flinch and completed the scene. However, the elbow was split into eight places! 

8. Zoolander

Now, this is one of our most classic bloopers. But it still made the cut. Ben Stiller actually forgot his lane in one of the scenes. So to cover up, he repeated his line and said, “But why male models?” 

9. Mrs. Doubtfire

The ice on Mrs. Sellner’s face was actually melting when she came to inspect Daniel’s apartment. In order to complete the shot, the dialogue was modified in a way to fit the scenario.

10. The Usual Suspects

What happens when everybody in the frame cannot control their laughter? Well, director Bryan Singer certainly got annoyed. But the police lineup scene wasn’t trimmed on the editing floor, making up for a great sequence.

11. Raiders of the Lost Ark

I guess we can all appreciate Freeman’s determination in this one. Paul Freeman didn’t flinch as a fly crawled on his face in the scene where Dr. Jones confronts the villainous Belloq. So, the CGI team later on edited the footage to make it look like the fly went into his mouth. 

12. Camp Rock

Sometimes, the director deliberately adds the bloopers to make the scene look more realistic. In the scene where Joe Jonas is running away from a group of fans, he actually trips over some bushes. But the shot was not removed and was kept as it is.
