Trivia: Daniel Craig only did this film because his agent told him it would help raise his profile in the United States. He later regretted starring in it as he hated the script and called it the worst mistake of his career.

Superman (1978)

Trivia: Goldfinger director Guy Hamilton was originally going the direct this film, which was to be shot in Italy. A combination of financial issues and a warrant being issued for Marlon Brando's arrest due to his role in the highly controversial Last Tango in Paris lead to production relocating to England. Hamilton had become a tax exile from the country and was forced to drop out of Superman.

Other mistake: When Benji kills Wistrum, the bullet hits him square in the back, even though Benji shot him from the side.

Trivia: SPOILERS In the original script, Julia was supposed to have genuinely been killed off between films. The reveal of her survival was only added when the film was halfway through shooting.

Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Question: So does magic exist in this universe or not? We know Blackwood isn't using magic and is just a fraud, but other characters such as Standish act like magic exists; and then there's Holmes having those visions when he performs the ritual. Does magic exist in this world?

MrMovieBuff

Answer: No, there's nothing to indicate that magic actually exists. Characters may be superstitious and believe it exists... but as Holmes displays, it was all cheap parlor tricks. As for his "visions," it's shown throughout the movie that Sherlock is amazing at deduction and prediction, so I assume the visions are a result of that. To me, it seemed like he was doing the ritual more to put himself into the right "mindset" than to actually perform magic.

TedStixon

Answer: Those were not visions, he was calculating the best scenario to use to defeat his opponent. All the other times after examining clues he was recreating the events that best fit the situation.

Trivia: Denise Richards did not have a happy experience making this film. According to her autobiography, the director Michael Apted gave her little direction and as her casting was a studio mandate she felt very lonely and unwanted. The backlash she got for her performance didn't help matters.

Trivia: The robot Santa story came about so that Tim Allen would not have to spend as much time in the Santa makeup for the sequel, due to having a miserable experience wearing it in the first film.

Superman (1978)

Answer: He probably traced the high frequency (that only Superman and dogs could hear) waves Lex spoke to him on when Superman was standing in the street listening to Lex. This guided him to the signal where he was underground.

Superman III (1983)

Plot hole: Webster mentions reading about Kryptonite in an interview with Superman. Why would Superman give away his weakness in an interview?
