2016 is almost over! Hallelujah! With everything that’s happened in the last 12 months, we can’t wait to rip the last page of our 2016 Spider-Man wall calendar and hang up our 2017 Spider-Man wall calendar.
You might know that National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation was written by John Hughes, the guy behind ’80s classics like The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. But did you know that before Hughes became a filmmaker he was a contributor to the National Lampoon magazine? In fact, he based his Christmas Vacation screenplay on one of his old Lampoon pieces, “Christmas ’59.” That’s just one of the cheerful facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
By now, Se7en has become one of the most beloved thrillers of the 1990s. But did you know that in the big chase scene in the rain, Brad Pitt really fell and severely hurt his arm? The injury was so serious Pitt required surgery, and he had to spend the rest of production with his hand in a cast. The broken arm was written into the script, but you might notice that Pitt spends a lot of the film hiding his arm behind various objects — because those scene were shot after Pitt broke his arm, but before his character breaks his arm. That’s just one of the facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Y’know those back to school ads for Staples? The ones that repurpose the Christmas standard “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” to celebrate children going back class? I always hated those ads as a kid. Going back to school was not a time to celebrate. It was a time for grief and mourning.
Okay, so it was one of the worst summer movie seasons in recent memory. Trying to find the good blockbusters amongst the last four months releases sometimes felt like trying to find a needle in a stack of s---. But even this year there were diamonds in the rough. Today we’re celebrating the ten best, the summer movies of 2016 that didn’t make us weep for the future of cinema — and note that this list is just movies that got wide releases in at least 500 theaters. We’ll have a separate piece on under-the-radar summer films you might have missed next week on ScreenCrush. In the meantime, let’s celebrate the highlights from a depressing summer before we clear the decks and get ready for the fall.
The original Deadpool costume was padded with fake muscles. But when Ryan Reynolds showed up to play everyone’s favorite Merc With a Mouth, he had so many actual muscles, that the fake muscles looked ridiculous and made the costume too bulky. So the fake muscles were removed. That Reynolds dude is legitimately jacked. This is just one of the Deadpool facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
An audience of children and their parents out for a day of family fun at a movie theater in California were horrified to watch the red-band trailer of Seth Rogen's Sausage Party film before the airing of Finding Dory.
After a winter that felt like it would never end (we’re still not entirely sure it ever did end), summer is finally here! OK, well the summer movie season is here anyway and with it comes sequels, reboots, remakes, prequels, adaptations, spinoffs and, if you look hard enough, some original movies too...
