Similarities between #Inception and #Paprika (2006)! 
Both films revolve around a similar premise about dreams. They also share similar characters, costumes, physics-defying hallways, “dream-elevators” and the visual effect of the dream world shattering like glass!

#RobertDeNiro and #QuentinTarantino reportedly did not get along on the set of #JackieBrown. Tarantino was annoyed by De Niro’s diva-like behavior during the making of the film. De Niro’s main gripe seemed to be that he thought he should have been paid more for the role of Louis, an ex-con.

The stunt where the wall falls on #BusterKeaton was performed with an actual full-weight wall. Half the crew walked off the set rather than participate in a stunt that would have killed Keaton if he had been slightly off position. Keaton himself, told the previous day that his studio was being shut down, was so devastated that he didn't care if the wall crushed him or not.

In episode seven of #StrangerThings3, Dustin hides a drugged Steve & Robin in a theater playing #BacktotheFuture (1985); this subtly ties to the main theme of Season 3, of how you can't rewrite the past but learn from mistakes to make a better future, which is a similar theme in the Back to the Future trilogy.

#JoaquinPhoenix revealed that he studied victims of PLC (Pathological Laughter or Crying), to craft his take on #TheJoker’s evil laugh. “I saw videos showing people suffering from pathological laughter, a mental illness that makes mimicry uncontrollable,” the actor explained. The incredibly unfunny disease causes involuntary laughter or crying, usually separate from any kind of conventional trigger. 🃏

For the more raunchy sex scenes between #BradPitt and #GeenaDavis in “Thelma & Louise” (1991), #RidleyScott had assumed that a body double would be needed for Geena. Shortly after he'd begun auditioning prospective doubles, Davis learned of Scott's intentions, and insisted that no doubles were needed in those steamy scenes. Geena was the one who picked Brad to do the part, which turned out to be his breakthrough role. 🤠

In #BruceAlmighty, the role of Evan Baxter was given to Steve Carell as he was the only actor who, during auditions, could adequately do the anchor breakdown scene where #JimCarrey forces him to say gibberish. It was his first major movie role that helped launch his career. 🥴

Like on many of his other films, #Interstellar director #ChristopherNolan has focused on as many real environments as possible. We have spatial interiors. We built closed sets and shot it like a documentary, like the actors were really there, he said. Nolan had the visual effects created in advance, and projected onto screens placed outside the spacecraft set, so when the actors and actresses looked out the windows of their vessel they would be able to see and react to a real environment, and not a greenscreen. ‍
