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.

Insidious picture

Trivia: The "Bride in Black" is played by a man wearing women's clothing. This was done so that something would feel "off" about the image of the ghost. At the time, the character was intended to be female. However, when the creators later reused the character for the sequel and added in a backstory, they worked the fact that the character was played by a male as part of his backstory - it actually is a man who masqueraded as a woman as a disguise to lure in victims.

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.
