Strange Movie Facts You Probably Didn’t Know Until Now

We asked the BuzzFeed Community for the weirdest movie facts they know. Here are the entertaining results.

 

  1. J. Simpson almost played the Terminator, but James Cameron thought his persona was “too pleasant” to portray such a dark character.
  2. The sound of the velociraptors communicating with each other in Jurassic Park is actually the sound of tortoises mating.
  3. Psycho was released in black and white because Hitchcock kept receiving backlash about the shower scene being too gory.
  4. The big scene in Pulp Fiction where Vincent stabs Mia in the heart with a needle was actually shot in reverse. So really, John Travolta was pulling the needle out of her.
  5. The burning-of-Atlanta scene in Gone With the Wind was created by setting fire to old sets found on the MGM lot.
  6. While filming Poltergeist, Robbie truly got choked during a take by the robot clown doll — it wasn’t until the boy turned purple that Spielberg realized what was actually happening.
  7. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon put a gay sex scene in the original Good Will Hunting script, just to see who’d actually read it. Harvey Weinstein noticed the out-of-place scene, and was thus hired.
  8. In Django Unchained, there’s a scene where Leo DiCaprio smashes a glass in a fit of rage, causing his hand to bleed. This was an accident, but Tarantino kept it in the movie.
  9. Silent Hill’s locale is based on a real place: Centralia, Pennsylvania. It’s mostly abandoned, but anyone who’s ever visited confirms it’s really unsettling.
  10. Gregory Peck took his role in 1976’s The Omen as a way to work out his “personal demons” — his son had killed himself right before he auditioned.
