Question: How come King Kong is on the ad smoking a cigar? He wasn't in the movie or anything.

Chosen answer: Ads are often made months before the final editing of any movie. Therefore, it's not unsual for something to be in an ad but not in the final movie (or to happen differently, or a different shot, or different music, etc.).

Question: This has been lingering on my mind since I saw "Conspiracy." What happens if a "Captain-eyes-only" message comes in and the captain is off the ship and not easily accessible? Is the message transfered, or does the captain give his first officer permission to view the message?

Chosen answer: It would depend on just how innaccesible the Captain was. If possible the message would be transferred. Otherwise, in the Captain's absence, the first officer would be the acting Captain and would be permitted to view the message.

Question: Does Cyclops sleep with his visor on?

Chosen answer: He has various other sets of glasses made of the same material - he would wear one of those rather than his bulkier visor.

Question: In the full Theatrical Trailer, does anyone know what song is playing from where Davy Jones says, "...and it's time to pay up." until the end of the trailer? Thanks.

Chosen answer: It's a bit more complex than a single track, I'm afraid, as it consists of several bits of music merged together. First up is a piece called "Choral Swell 3", by a group called "Music Junkies". Other pieces represented are a pair from a group called "Immediate Music", who do a lot of trailers, entitled "Def Con" & "Epicon", then, from Pfeifer Broz Music, bits entitled "Evil Island", "Falling Comatose" and "Tortured Souls".

Question: Are all the cars around the house from people Leatherface has killed in the past?

Chosen answer: The audience is meant to assume this, although it is never stated explicitly.

Question: I haven't seen this movie but I've seen the adverts. Is the woman who plays Sandler's wife the same woman who plays Kate in Lost? She sure does look like her.

Chosen answer: No Sandler's wife in the movie is played by Kate Beckinsale. Kate on Lost is played by Evangeline Lilly.

Question: In the episode where Homer and Bart go to the Superbowl, why does Marge write down Jody Price's name on a pad when calling the toy company about missing feet for their egg painting game?

Question: If Mrs Fackler is married to Mr Fackler, the nerdy cop, why does she want to share rooms with Kirkland?

Chosen answer: The way I see it is that Kirkland and her are cadets, Mr. Fackler is not a cadet and wouldn't sleep in same dorm.

Question: When Professor X starts killing everyone, he and Jason remain unharmed. Does Cerebro protect them from it?

Chosen answer: Anyone inside the Cerebro chamber would have to be immune to its effects. Otherwise, the professor wouldn't be able to use the machine.

Question: I was reading one of the first transcripts of Scream on the internet and at the end of the movie just before Sidney kills Billy, she says something along the lines of "and this, Billy Studbucket, is for having an incredibly small weenie." Does anyone know why this was cut out of the final film?

Chosen answer: Who knows. Almost every movie made has gone through a myriad of script rewrites before ending up with the finished movie and changes are made on all levels of production; from the initial scriptwriting, to on the set changes, to changes made in post production.

Question: Why did Michael's secretary keep asking him if she could go to the toilet?

Chosen answer: She felt that she had to ask permission to do everything. She feared that she would make Michael angry if he needed her and she wasn't there.

Question: Originally, the character Detective Mathews was written to be in the movie. Then the actor (Donnie Wahlberg) supposedly left due to creative differences. But nevertheless, he is in Saw III. Does anyone know the details of the matter?

Chosen answer: Simply put the creators of Saw III did not want you to know that Donnie was going to be in the movie, so they put that up there so you could be suprised when you saw him.

Question: I have seen a different ending to this film. Every now and then when it airs on TV the movie ends with Doc in 1955, standing at the site where Marty just went back to 1985, and then Marty comes running up to him and says "I'm back" (or something similar). I seem to remember that this is the standard ending to the second film. Why is it occasionally used to end the first one?

Chosen answer: That's actually the beginning scene in Back to the Future 3. It would make no sense to end the first film with that sequence, as at that point Marty hasn't returned to 1955 after getting home the first time.

Question: A whole lot of questions are answered is this movie, but there's one thing not explained. What happened to Dr. Gordon?

Chosen answer: After crawling out of the bathroom, Dr. Gordon cauterizes his leg on a hot steam pipe in the tunnels outside. He then passes out and Jigsaw finds him and nurses him back to health, giving him a new foot. Gordon then becomes Jigsaw's helper, helping him in many of his traps.

Question: Who is Jedidiah? Where did he come from and Why isn't he in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning?

Chosen answer: Jebidiah was the grandson of the sheriff. Since TCM:TB was a prequel, telling about Leatherface's upbringing, he would not have been born yet.

Question: Just after Mystique takes the bullet for Magneto, he does acknowledge that she saved him, but walks away. It was very obvious that she did save him so the line wasn't put there for explanation, so why have Magneto say that she saved him if he didn't care?

Chosen answer: As you said yourself, he's acknowledging to her that she saved him. Whether he now cares about her or not, an acknowledgement is hardly unreasonable.

Question: It's mentioned in a correction that Izzy is killed in the crash. Why is this said when he can be seen crawling away from the crash just before Double D has the showdown with the Creeper.

Chosen answer: The car explodes a while after it crashed, too fast for Izzy to get away.

Question: During the La Vie Boheme song Angel looks at Roger over the top of Mark and says something. Anyone know what it is?

Chosen answer: Angel says "I can feel his balls".

Question: In one scene, the Prime Minister asks his assistant to "redistribute" Natalie. What does this mean?

Chosen answer: He wants her assigned to a different job so he won't see her anymore.
