The priests then open the gold book's hiding place and get burned all up by the salt acid. You can even see when Rick grabs the TNT that there is smoke rising from the hole.

The World is Not Enough picture

Trivia: In the opening sequence with the speed boat jetting through the boat house and over the road was filmed in Wapping, East London. It took a week to film that one sequence as I saw them doing it. Also, for the matter of continuity, when the boat goes across the road, it goes into some sort of alley with an arch above it; in reality it's actually a Group 4 building on the other side of that road.

Galaxy Quest picture

Trivia: The scene near the end of the film where the bad guy kills all of the Galaxy Quest crew is very similar to a scene in the '70s British sci-fi TV show Blake's 7. In that scene, the crew are shot one by one in the same fashion as in this scene.

Trivia: The ancient legend in the tablet is very different in both versions. In the English version, it says that the Titans of Ice, Lightning, and Fire must be stopped by collecting the three treasures and awakening the beast of the sea, and the world will turn to Ash. In the Japanese version, it says that the God of the Sea will battle the Gods of Fire, Ice, and Lightning, and will fail, thus a superior master will rise up and save the world. The last line "and the world will turn to Ash." is not in the Japanese version, as Ash's Japanese name is Satoshi, named after the creator of Pokémon, Satoshi Tajiri.

The 13th Warrior picture

Trivia: The story of this film is basically a retelling of the story of Beowulf and Grendel. Buliwyf is Beowulf, the Wendol are Grendel, King Hrothgar is of course himself. Ahmed Ibn Fahalan was added to lend the story historical credence as Ahmen Ibn Fahalan really did travel north from Baghdad and encountered Viking men.

Muppets From Space picture

Trivia: This movie is based on a scene from the original Muppet Movie, where, while sitting around a campfire, Gonzo sings "I'm Going Back There Someday," and looks up at the night sky (though nowhere in any other Muppet show or movie does it say he's an alien).

Bravo Two Zero picture

Trivia: "Mark" in the film is in reality Mike Coburn, who wrote his own account of Bravo Two Zero. Another writer and ex-SAS, Michael Asher (in "The real Bravo Two Zero") travelled to the area of events and found a different truth than in "McNab's" book. For example that Andy McNab is not his real name, that the cab was not a New York cab but a Toyota Crown and that there is actually no evidence that the patrol ever got into any big fire fights at all. Names and cars are minor discrepancies but the fights are way off what could be called "real events". The film is rather true to the book by "McNab" but not all true to the real events as told by other members and fact finders.
