Insidious: Chapter 2 picture

Trivia: During the opening of the film, Lindsay Seim portrays the younger Elise in the flashback sequence. However, Lin Shaye, who plays the older Elise, dubbed over Seim's dialog in post production. Director James Wan stated that this was done because Shaye has such a unique voice, and thus, it allowed her presence to be felt early in the film.

A Good Day to Die Hard picture

Trivia: Early in production, the film was under the working title "Die Hard 24/7", leading many media outlets and fans to speculate that the film was to be a crossover with another popular Fox property- the television series "24." (An unnamed studio insider even told a popular movie-reporting site that Fox had been tinkering with the idea very early in production to try and shake-up and revitalize both franchises.) The title and concept of the film were subsequently changed.

Warm Bodies picture

Trivia: Warm Bodies actually has tons of references to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, it is kind of a modern adaptation. The zombie, R(omeo), falls in love with the human girl Julie(t). An impossible love, as both “species” fight against each other. Julie has an Italian last name, Grigio, has a boyfriend, Perry, who represents Paris from Romeo and Juliet. But there is another similarity that makes it much more obvious: Ever thought about the scene at Julie’s home, where she is standing on her balcony and looking down to R? And suddenly, Nora (who obviously represents the nurse) shows up? We know that scene very well. And finally, their love unites zombies and humans and stops their war. Fortunately, the ending is not inspired by the play .

The Conjuring picture

Trivia: The "Annabelle" doll seen in the opening sequence of the film was actually a regular "Raggedy Ann" doll in the real-life story that inspired the scene. The doll was redesigned to its current, much more grotesque form for several reasons: First, to make it more cinematic. And second, to avoid legal troubles with the copyright holders on Raggedy Ann. The filmmakers and Lorraine Warren also stated that they were interested in re-designing the Annabelle doll because they were afraid if they used a real Raggedy Ann doll, it would frighten children who might own them.
