The Book of Life picture

Question: When Manolo and Joaquin start fighting the wild boar, General Posada only sees Joaquin confronting the boar before he is knocked unconscious. Thus, he never sees Manolo fighting the boar like a matador. When the general recovers, he believes Joaquin defeated the boar and not Manolo. Despite the townsfolk being impressed by Manolo's action, why does no one, including the nun who thanks Manolo for saving her life, speak up and tell the general what actually happened? Why don't they confirm to the general that Manolo fought and defeated the boar?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: There was probably too much panic from the rampaging animals.

Question: In the beginning, Thomas wakes up in the Box which is moving up. He discovers an animal in the cage. It looks like a black pig. The pig apparently isn't shown anymore in the rest of the movie. Why the hell is the black pig in the Box?

Bunch

Chosen answer: It is just part of the supplies that is sent up each month, along with a new boy. Everything the maze residents have has been supplied to them. That includes rudimentary tools, vegetable seeds, food, and various other supplies and equipment. The pig is just livestock that will likely be butchered for meat.

Justice League: War picture

Question: Now that JL: War has been released, what is the meaning of the teaser at the end of Flashpoint? It hints at the invasion by Darkseid, however, in JL: War none of the superheroes have met and Cyborg had only just been created. Did the events of JL: War happen before Flashpoint, therefore, rendering the teaser moot? This is concerning over future animated DC film teasers (i.e. JL: War teasing Throne of Atlantis) and how much should be considered accurate, time-wise.

Chosen answer: Flashpoint Paradox is supposed to be the story of why the New 52 universe came to be. The Flash did fix what he changed, but that did cause other changes and still created a new time line. Flashpoint Paradox and JL War are not in the same continuity. But one does INDIRECTLY cause the other. Though that is more the case with the comics, and not so much for the movies, as there are differences in the adaptations. The teaser at the end of Flashpoint was more or less just teasing DC's next film to come and not necessarily a sequel. Throne of Atlantis is a direct sequel to War though.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman picture

Question: How exactly did Peabody and Sherman fix time by going into the future?

Chosen answer: By travelling to the future, as it approached the speed of light, the WABAC machine generated a gravitational field equal and opposite to the rip in the space-time continuum and cancelled the rip out - a combination of the suggestions of Sherman, Da Vinci, Einstein and Newton.

Annie picture

Question: What happened to Annie's parents?

Chosen answer: In earlier versions of the "Annie" story, she is orphaned when her parents are killed in a car accident. In the musical, they died in a fire. In the 2014 re-imagining, Annie lives in foster care after being abandoned by her family. Early on, she hopes to one day be reunited with them. We, the audience, never learn their whereabouts, nor whether they are alive or dead.

Question: When Chris and co are having dinner with an Iraqi family, why does Chris react the way he does when he sees the mark on the Iraqi father's left elbow? What does Chris think it is?

kh1616

Chosen answer: Chris has "shooter's strawberries" on his elbows, which are red callouses caused by lying in the sniper's position for long periods. He notices the same marks on the elbows of the father, and realizes that he too is a military sniper.

Interstellar picture

Question: Why type of propulsion system does the Endurance use? It took 2 years for them to reach Saturn from Earth. Once they're in the other galaxy, the ship appears to travel between planets in mere hours/days. Also, it appears that the smaller shuttle craft was launched from Earth on a Saturn V type rocket, but later when leaving the surface of other planets, they have no such system.

Chosen answer: I am not exactly sure what kind of propulsion system is used, however; you must consider that although in our galaxy even the closest planets to Earth take years to travel to, in this alternate universe, the planets may be arranged in a closer formation.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies picture

Question: Just wondering what finally became of Alfrid, the Master's clerk and Bejorn, the skinchanger.

Answer: The Extended Edition of this film shows Alfrid being inadvertently catapulted into the mouth of a troll during the eponymous battle, and it is heavily implied that he dies from the ordeal, as he Is shown to be motionless when the troll collapses to the ground.

Phaneron Premium member

Chosen answer: In both the novel and the movie, Alfrid's (who is not named in the book) fate is unknown. Beorn, in the book, stopped his reclusiveness and became a leader of the local woodmen and protected the area from orcs and goblins. He died sometime before the War of the Ring and was succeeded by his son Grimbeorn.

Greg Dwyer

Answer: We don't know what happenned to Alfrid and the Master, but in the book we know that the Master took his bit of the gold and ran off somewhere, leaving Bard to bring Lake-Town into the re-established Kingdom of Dale. Beorn continued to guard the High Pass, eventually had children and grandchildren called the Beornings, who still charge tolls for Dwarves to cross the bridge across the river.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes picture

Question: Although it's shown in the beginning that due to the leakage and worldwide spread of the experimental drug at the "Gen-Sys" lab the human race was about to end. Yet a few did survive. How exactly then the creator of the drug, James Franco die? Caesar was somehow taken to the very same home James lived and operated there itself, was there any reason to bring Caesar back to his childhood home again?

dhavami

Chosen answer: The circumstances of Will's death are not revealed in the movie, but presumably he either died from the virus or was killed in the violence that erupted after the breakdown of society. Caesar was taken back to his childhood home because he guided them there, presumably wishing to return to a location that he associated with good times while he recovered from his injuries.

Guardians of the Galaxy picture

Question: Why is Ronan able to hold the Infinity Stone? Isn't he a mortal like Peter?

Chosen answer: As a Kree, he has superior physical and mental strength that allows him to briefly hold the Infinity Stone, just as Peter held it briefly. But if he had held it longer he would have been destroyed, although he would be able to hold it longer than most. This is why he was trying to embed the stone into his Cosmi-Rod.

Transformers: Age of Extinction picture

Question: Megatron was brought back through the body of Galvatron because his head was recovered, although Optimus Prime previously stated that Transformers' memories are stored in their Spark in their chest. Wouldn't this mean Megatron would not have any of his memories from before?

Chosen answer: Optimus was being dramatic when he said it contained their memories. Transformers don't carry their memories in their spark any more than humans carry theirs in their soul.

Edge of Tomorrow picture

Question: When Cage enters the dam building something past the plant moves. What is it? Looks like a mop head.

Chosen answer: It must be either a piece of equipment that someone noticed was in the shot, and tried to move out of the way in time. Or some sort of reference marker for Tom Cruise to take a cue from and point his gun at.
