It picture

Trivia: Bill SkarsgÄrd was purposely kept separated from the child-actors during filming, and outside of some early publicity photos, the kids never saw him until the first scene they filmed together in order to get their genuine reactions.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 picture

Trivia: Vin Diesel was given a special "Groot" version of the script that contained "translations" of what Groot was actually saying whenever he utters his one and only repeated sentence "I am Groot." This was done to help him deliver his dialog appropriately, since he would know exactly what point Groot was trying to get across with each line. Reportedly, only Diesel was given this version of the script - in everyone else's script, Groot's dialog is merely "I am Groot" over and over again.

Fifty Shades Darker picture

Trivia: When Ana is telling Hannah, her new assistant, what she expects of her in the job, the dialogue is taken from the 1988 film "Working Girl," starring Dakota Johnson's mother, Melanie Griffith. Ana says, "I expect you to call me Ana. I don't expect you to fetch me coffee, unless you're getting some for yourself, and the rest, we'll just make up as we go along." In "Working Girl," Melanie Griffith says, "I expect you to call me Tess. I don't expect you to fetch me coffee unless you're getting some for yourself, and the rest we'll just make up as we go along."

Kingsman: The Golden Circle picture

Trivia: Taron Egerton refused to shoot the scene where he implants the tracking device into Charlie's girlfriend's groin, as he felt uncomfortable touching the actress in that area. The hand we see reaching down into the woman's underwear is actually the hand of the actress' husband, who gladly volunteered to "double" for Egerton's hand in that scene.

Jigsaw picture

Trivia: The film is edited by Kevin Greutert, who edited "Saw" 1-5, and directed the sixth and seventh films. Greutert is one of only a few holdover crewmembers from the original run of the series to return. He said he felt an obligation to be a part of "Jigsaw"- feeling that given his past with the series, he should help usher the franchise into the new direction that the producers and writers wanted to take, while also helping to maintain ties to what came before.

Logan picture

Trivia: It was comedian Jerry Seinfeld of all people that gave Hugh Jackman the idea to retire from the role of Wolverine. Jackman was attending a diner party with Seinfeld and asked him how he knew when it was time to end his legendary sitcom. Seinfeld told him "You need to leave something in the tank. If you feel like, 'OK, I think we might have said everything but there is still a little bit left, ' then that's the time to go." Jackman took it to heart and decided to go out on a high note and make the best film he possibly could to end his tenure as Wolverine, and considers "Logan" to be the most personal of all of his portrayals of the character.

Ghost in the Shell picture

Trivia: The first movie cut version of the score for Ghost In The Shell was done by Clint Mansell, Kevin Riepl and Kiner, and Lorn. However due to test screenings, the majority of the work was dropped due to the audiences negative reaction towards the scenes with philosophical elements and the ending of the film. Thus Lorne Balfe was ask to do the replacement score for the new cut of the movie and the movie score soundtrack by Clint Mansell was canned. Yet in both versions, Kevin Kiner's music was stilled used. However, for legal reasons, the complete score for the film will never be released. Despite that, Lorne Balfe's music work was released of late December 2017 through Facebook by wav download link.
