Predators picture

Trivia: The creature that hunts down the Doctor before being shot down by the Sniper girl is actually the original design of the Predator that was scrapped during Predator 1 due to issues with the costume and the jungle. The original Predator was supposed to be very slender with backwards knees and long arms, but because of the jungle setting, it was scrapped because the director was unable to make the costume work properly.

Trivia: In the scene after Hiccup finally gets Toothless' new tail fin to work, and the two are relaxing after they fly through the fire ball, the two are greeted by a group of tiny dragons.

Clash of the Titans picture

Trivia: In a shot of Zeus sitting on the throne, Emma Thompson, in costume as Nanny McPhee, is actually hiding behind the throne - they were filming next to each other. The story was related during an interview - she sneaked on set during a break, sat on Liam Neeson's lap and said "I think you've been a very naughty boy". He suggested she stay when filming resumed, as the shot wasn't going to be on him anyway, but she didn't want to throw off Ralph Fiennes, so hid behind the throne to get out of the way, and a shot of it with her hidden behind, unseen, is in the movie.

Jedd Jong
Alice in Wonderland picture

Trivia: Alice's impending battle on the "frabjous day" with a creature referred to as a "Jabberwocky" is a central plot point, and refers to Lewis Carroll's famous poem "Jabberwocky," from which other characters in the film, such as the Jubjub bird and Bandersnatch, are derived. However, the titular creature of the poem "Jabberwocky" was NOT a Jabberwocky, but a Jabberwock. For whatever reason, the writers of the film chose to call it by the [admittedly similar] title of the poem instead of the actual name of the creature. (For the full text of the poem, see http://www.jabberwocky.com/carroll/jabber/jabberwocky.html).

Piranha 3D picture

Trivia: In the opening scene with Richard Dreyfuss fishing on the lake he is singing to himself "show me the way to go home". This is a nod to the movie Jaws because it is the song that he sang along with the rest of the crew as they waited for the tagged shark to be re-sighted.

Hot Tub Time Machine picture

Trivia: When the foursome ski down the mountain and are looking around at the oddly dressed people, someone behind John Cusack says, "Hey Lane, you owe me two dollars".

Shutter Island picture

Trivia: During the ferry approach at the start, we are shown Shutter Island. In actuality this is a combination of Peddocks Island (the decaying brick buildings), Maine's Acadia National Park, Massachusetts' Medfield State Hospital, and Turner Hill Country Club's Rice Estate (located in Ipswich, MA), which were combined via CGI. Additionally, the mountainous region of the island (shown as the ferry approaches) was also CGI, and added in post-production.
