What are the most surprising facts about movies that will blow your mind?

A renowned screenwriter and film director, Martin Scorsese, once said: “Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out”. Indeed, he just solidified that there really is more to movies what meets the eye. And without a scintilla of doubt, we have come to an era where the advancement of technology has made everything practically accessible to anyone. By that, we mean we have become modern 'prophets' in the parlance of entertainment. So much so that even before a movie premieres, certified movie buffs already had everything figured out. By the time a film hits theaters or streaming service for that matter, everyone is on the edge of their seats, eagerly looking out for easter eggs and significant references that the director might have snuck into the sequences of the film. And if the film is lucky to be a blockbuster hit, it now becomes a subject for an interesting-movie-facts article on the web.

On another level, if it's a groundbreaker, or perhaps, if it garners an Academy Award, that's where creating a list of mind-blowing movie facts becomes worthwhile. And for fans, there is nothing more engaging than letting them take a peek at what had happened behind the camera. For instance the 1997 romance and Oscar-winning film Titanic directed by James Cameron. Did you know that before that scene where Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) draws Rose (Kate Winslet) in nude, the actress did some actual flashing to ease the awkwardness that might arise between them? Quite saucy and intriguing, right? If you want to discover more fun movie facts, go through our list below and leave us a comment if you think we are missing out on a lot of more cool movie facts!

    It wasn't Leo but James Cameron who drew Kate in the nude!

    You probably heard about Kate Winslet flashing her nude body to her Titanic co-star Leo DiCaprio to ease the awkwardness between them in the drawing scene of the film. But did you know that it was Director Cameron who drew Kate? Yep! Sorry to burst the bubble but Jack didn't draw Rose. By the way, the painting was auctioned for $16,000 in 2011!

    Toy Story 2 never almost made it!

    Perhaps the mantra 'think before you click' was made for this instance! And yes, you read that right! Pixar's billion-dollar animated film Toy Story 2 was almost gone with the wind when a one-liner command was entered into the 'master machine'. Woody's hat disappeared, followed by his boots, and the next thing they knew, the whole sequence got deleted. Luckily, their supervising technical director, who had just given birth at that time, kept a copy with her for she had been working from home!
