The movie makers love to put out a few hidden details for viewers to notice. They usually have a deeper connection with the story than we think. It is fascinating to know about the amount of thought that goes behind every minute detail. But how many times do we notice these little changes? We have brought the party to you. Here’s a compilation of 18 movie details you must have missed. Enjoy!
1. Elizabeth’s Cameo in Forrest Gump
Did you know? In the movie Forrest Gump (1994), Tom Hanks’s daughter made a cameo. You probably missed it; let us remind you. The girl that doesn’t let Forrest to sit next to her on a bus is her.
2. Spider-Man: Homecoming
We all loved Zendaya’s cool character, MJ, along with Tom Holland, in the movie. We are pretty sure you missed this one tiny detail. In the scene, she is shown reading a book named Of Human Bondage. The story in the book is about an orphan boy living with his Uncle and Aunt. Sounds familiar?
3. The camera in The Matrix
This one’s actually very clever and awesome. The scene shows Neo and Morpheus in Oracle’s room. The close shot is taken from the doorknob’s reflection, and it was really hard to hide the camera. Hence they put on a black robe on the camera and part of Morpheus’s tie to camouflage the camera.
4. Nick’s reference from the gravestone
In Captain America, we saw Nick Fury’s gravestone. That was, of course, a distraction, but there was a hidden detail planted in the scene. On Nick’s gravestone, there’s a line written under his name “the path of the righteous man…” The line is a reference to Jules from Pulp Fiction, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
5. Ratatouille’s rats
These rats are incredible creatures from the movie. They are the heroes of the story and are made to look so weirdly adorable. Among them all is a fat rat, Git, which is bigger than all. He has a small detail, most likely to be missed, on his ear- which is a tag “A113”. This indicated that he’s indeed a lab rat.
6. Hidden detail in Soul
There is an Easter egg in the movie Soul, which is- there is a poster advertising for “Brang” on the train. This is the same company where, in Inside Out, Riley’s dad works at.
7. White Witch from Narnia
The White Witch, played by Tilda Swinton, is a remarkable character. The filmmakers carefully designed her crown. If you pay attention to the crown’s size in all parts, you’ll know what we mean. As her power decreases, the size of her crown also reduces significantly. They have nailed the symbolism.
8. The book’s reference in James Bond: Die Another Day
In the movie, we see James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) holding a book (field Guide) titled Birds of West Indies. The book is written by the real-life James Bond, who had inspired Ian Fleming.
9. Cars in John Wick 2
The way the cars are parked is sameThe writers paid close attention to the screenplay in both parts of the film. A scene of the hotel is proof of that. The cars are parked in the same way they were parked in the first film. The filming of the second part was done after three years, but the results were satisfactory.
10. Green Suit reference in Deadpool
We all have loved Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool, haven’t we? The movie shows a scene where Deadpool is getting his surgery done and mocks his own character by saying, “don’t make my suit green,” referring to his green suit in Green Lantern.
11. Stephen King’s cameo in It Chapter 2
The author of the novel, Stephen King, made a cameo appearance in It -2. Did you not recognize the guy who is the antique shop owner and sells his bike to Bill? Yup, he’s the one.
12. Appearance of the novel in Watchmen
There is a scene in the movie where Hollis Mason has the same novel on which the movie is based. If you look closely, you’ll see the (half) name of the book written in yellow. You must have definitely missed this movie detail.
13. Time calculation in Fargo
The crime thriller, Fargo (1996), stars William H. Macy and is a brilliant film. But there’s one clever detail, thoughtfully placed. The blackmailer asks William to deliver the money in the next 30 mins. While this happens, there are only 30 mins left for the movie to end. Clever, right?
14. Author reference in Matilda
In the movie adaptation Matilda, there is a cute reference to Charles Dickens. The little Mara Wilson says Darles Chickens and is a reference to The Big Friendly Giant, where the character refers to the author the same way.
15. Translator in Guardians of The Galaxy
The makers gave valid explanation and a brilliant hidden detail. There is an appearance on the screen where there is a list of Peter Quill’s enhancements. And if you look closely on the left side, there is an enhancement that tells about the Translator Implant (in the neck). This explains why the Guardians can speak with the Avengers in English.
16. Hidden three-finger salute in The Hunger Games: The Mockingjay
The movie starts a rebellion against the evil reality show, promoting brutal killing and survival game among fellow villagers. However, the villagers show their opposition by showing a three-finger salute. In the scene where Katniss and Peeta are dancing, only three of Peeta’s fingernails are painted in black, revealing the hidden salute.
17. Cornfield in Interstellar
It may seem normal these days to use CGI to show fields and jungles on the screen. But the director of Interstellar, Christopher Nolan, decided against it. He planted all that corn instead of using CGI. Did you notice the difference?
18 Frank The Pug in Men In Black 3
There is a portrait of Frank the pug in MIB 3. We all saw the cute little Pug in the earlier movies; hence, this one’s a callback to his presence in previous movies.
