Eternals picture

Trivia: After 13 years and 26 films, this is the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to receive a "rotten" rating from Rotten Tomatoes upon release. This is somewhat ironic given that there were reports that Marvel considered it the best film they had made yet, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige felt it could be a nominee for Best Picture at the Oscars, particularly as its director ChloƩ Zhao had recently won the Best Director Oscar for Nomadland, which also won Best Picture.

Zack Snyder's Justice League picture

Trivia: Despite his directorial credits, Zack Snyder never actually watched Justice League (2017). Christopher Nolan and Snyder's wife, producer Deborah Snyder, told him not to go and see Joss Whedon's finished production of the movie, because, according to a new report in Vanity Fair, the pair told him that the final result would "break his heart."

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City picture

Trivia: The scene with Jill eating Wesker's sandwich and saying "It's Jill's sandwich now!" (although saying it quickly in such a way that you can't hear the "s" and it sounds more like "It's Jill sandwich now!") is a reference to an infamous moment in the original video game. In the game, Jill is almost crushed by a booby-trap, and the character Barry says she was "almost a Jill sandwich!" The poor dialogue and terrible delivery by the voice actor ended up making the moment a meme many years later.

Naked Singularity picture

Trivia: "Singularities" are infinitely dense points. When something is compressed to the point of having a volume of ZERO, its density is thought of as being infinite - in other words, a "singularity." A typical example is the inside (center) of a black hole. A huge star - that once had a large mass - was reduced to nothing, but that "nothing" has a density that is infinite. It is at a point of "no return" (an event horizon), so is not visible. BUT "naked singularities" could exist - and be visible.

Trivia: The reflective yellow/gold at the top of New Jersey plates enables police to quickly identify the vehicle as in-state. Yellow/gold is used because NJ's state bird is the American Goldfinch.
