Before Captain America: The First Avenger hit theaters and helped kickstart the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel had much different ideas for Cap. Namely, a comedy. Before Iron Man became a hit, the original plan was for the Captain America movie to be funny, because they didn't know if audiences could take Cap seriously. The man they wanted to direct? Jon Favreau, the man who would eventually direct the first two Iron Man movies. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads back to WWII with Captain America: The First Avenger!
Before Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, Batman was largely known for the campy Adam West/Burt Ward TV series. In fact, they wanted to make a Batman movie based on that show called Batman in Outer Space. Luckily, two movie producers bought the rights and wanted to make a darker version of Batman's story. In the mid-80s, after the success of Ghostbusters, director Ivan Reitman was attached to direct and he wanted to cast Bill Murray as Batman and Eddie Murphy as Robin. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Gotham with the original Batman!
If you go see Furious 7, there’s a lot to enjoy. From cars parachuting out of airplanes to Vin Diesel and Jason Statham fighting to The Rock walking down a city street shooting a helicopter out of the sky with a giant gatling gun. But, there are some smaller moments you might want to keep your eye out for too. Namely, some fun Furious 7 easter eggs for fans of the franchise and The Rock.
Last weekend, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted SNL and did an amazing job. So, this guy can walk down a street with a giant gatling gun in Furious 7 and also be hilarious? It's almost not fair. But, The Rock's range doesn't stop there. Last night, he appeared on the debut episode of Lip Sync Battle, a spinoff of sorts from the popular segment on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, and of course he won. By lip syncing Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. This you gotta see.
Before Marvel's Thor finally hit theaters in 2011, there were multiple attempts from directors to make a movie based on the popular comic character. Way back in 1991, Sam Raimi (who had just directed Darkman) pitched both Stan Lee and Marvel his take on the Norse god, but the studio “didn’t get it” according to the director. Probably a good thing, because if they did, we might not have the Avengers movies. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Asgard with Thor!
Did you know in The Big Lebowski, the word “dude” is spoken 160 times, The Dude himself says “man” 147 times, he drinks nine White Russians and the F-word is said 292 times. Dude, that's f---ing incredible, man. Don't get caught out of your element with more Big Lebowski facts in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
There’s a running joke in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that Indy took his nickname from the family dog. That joke has some truth to it though because as George Lucas was developing Raiders of the Lost Ark, he actually named the character after his dog, Jones (the “Indiana” was a riff on Steve McQueen character Nevada Smith). Coincidentally, the same dog was the inspiration for Chewbacca in Star Wars. Need more Raiders of the Lost Ark facts? Throw us the idol and we’ll throw you the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
If you're a big Fight Club fan (and, if so, who can blame you), you might have seen a lot of the subliminal messages cut throughout the film like the many split-second Tyler Durden appearances or the occasional flashes of, ahem, the male anatomy. But, here's something you may have missed: director David Fincher says there is a Starbucks coffee cup hidden in every scene of the movie.
Alien is now widely considered to be one of the best sci-fi/horror films ever made, but originally Fox didn't want to make it. In fact, it was only the success of another one of the biggest sci-fi films of all-time — Star Wars — that convinced the studio to give director Ridley Scott the greenlight. So, without Chewbacca, there would be no xenomorphs. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Alien!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 just hit DVD last week, but we've already got a new trailer and poster for Mockingjay — Part 2, which opens in theaters this November. But, if you're expecting to see a lot of Jennifer Lawrence, you're going to be disappointed.
If you thought the movie version of Poltergeist was creepy, that's nothing compared to how it was on set. During the film's finale, the production used actual human skeletons instead of props because it was cheaper to buy the real ones. And they wonder why this movie is cursed? This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on Poltergeist! All are welcome to watch!
In the original comics version of Days of Future Past, the X-Men travel into the distant future of...2013. Which, of course, is actually before the present day of X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014 (the movie instead travels to 2023). This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes back to the future with X-Men: Days of Future Past!
