  1. Film producer Jeffrey Katzenberg revived The Walt Disney Studios by producing some of their biggest hits: The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin . After these he requested a promotion, and was then abruptly fired by them. He then swore revenge against Disney and founded Dream Works Studios.
  2. While shooting the snow mountain scene for Lord Of The Rings The Fellowship of the Ring, Sean Bean climbed the mountain to reach the sets. In order to shoot the scene, the crew had to be helicoptered to the sets. But Sean Bean, succumbing to his fear of flying, chose the difficult path and took whole two hours to climb the mountain.
  3. In The Dark Knight, the part where the Joker is fidgeting with the remote was a natural reaction. The hospital set was timed to get blown off with some other technology and of course not by Joker’s remote. What had happened was that due to perhaps some technical fault the hospital set did not suffer the blast by the pre-decided time. However, Joker being in his character fully, made it appear as though it was due to the faulty remote in his hand that was causing the delay in the blast.
  4. Thor in order to conceive that absolutely real remote town look, they rebuilt almost an entire town in Galisteo, New Mexico.

  9. In one of the iconic Pulp Fiction scenes, the plot of Kill Bill is indirectly revealed.
