The "Movies" section is a tribute to this art form, offering a comprehensive look into various facets of cinema, from behind-the-scenes trivia to the magic that unfolds on screen.
One of the most intriguing aspects of movies is the myths they perpetuate. How many times have we been captivated by scenes that defy logic, yet seem so believable?

This section delves into these cinematic myths, dissecting the reality behind the reel, offering insights into what's pure fiction and what might have a semblance of truth.
Casting is another cinematic marvel. The process of finding the perfect face for a character is no less than a treasure hunt.

Movies also serve as a reflection of society, often challenging norms, breaking barriers, and setting trends. They have the power to influence fashion, dictate styles, and even alter perceptions. From iconic costumes to memorable dialogues, movies leave an indelible mark on popular culture.
Behind every movie lies a plethora of stories, anecdotes, and trivia. Did you know that some of the most iconic roles were almost played by different actors?

The 90s marked the childhood and youth of many of us. Therefore, we remember that time with special fondness and love.

Today, we decided to take a look at how they have changed over three decades.
So far, only one movie remake has ever won the Oscar for Best Picture — The Departed (2006), an American version of the Hong Kong film, Infernal Affairs (2002). Since then, remakes have become increasingly popular in Hollywood. The public, however, sometimes shows apprehension towards their favorite movies being re-done. So perhaps the key would be if beloved films were remade by the exact same cast this day. We thought that spin would be amusing, so our team of Photoshop specialists created a few examples of how it could look.
Hollywood and the entertainment industry are way smaller than people think and that often shows when celebrities wear the same outfits. And we’re not talking about red carpet clothes, but about clothes the characters of famous movies and TV series wear. The same clothes circulate between productions and especially when the stylists are the same in different productions.
The final episode of Modern Family aired in April 2020. Although not too long has passed since then, it has been 13 years since the hit sitcom premiered.

So we decided to check up on them and see just how this loving cast has changed.
Celebrities sure are lucky people, and so are their children. Those little guys often have charming mothers and instant popularity. And in many cases, you’d expect them to be the spitting image of their parents, but, actually, it often happens that they’re so different, it’s impossible to guess they’re even remotely related.
Hollywood is constantly introducing new actors to the world. However, only a few of them get to have decades-long careers.

Actors are often required to physically transform in order to portray certain characters. However, one thing they can’t actually change themselves is their height.

But we found out a few times when we were tricked by the magic of cinema.
Filming always goes together with normal life. And sometimes, actresses find out about their pregnancies, but the characters they’re playing can’t be.

We’ve collected several examples of actresses who worked on set while pregnant, and it was hard to notice in most of these movies and TV shows.
It’s a harsh reality in Hollywood that one bad role can completely derail an actor’s career.

The magic of cinema depends on elements. A substantial one is the actors’ ability to make their characters feel real to the audience.

When we watch our favorite movies and TV shows for a second time, we might notice that there are small mistakes in these elaborate productions. Although this certainly does not mean that they are worse than the rest, the question arises: how many mistakes made it to the screens unnoticed?
Certain actors and actresses have delivered such exceptional performances in specific roles that it becomes challenging to envision anyone else embodying those same characters.

This isn’t always the result of rigid scheduling or a simple aversion to a particular project. We sought to uncover which renowned actors turned down roles that later achieved iconic status.

It’s been 13 years since its premiere in 2008, and that’s why we decided to learn about the lives of the actors who appeared in it and how they look today after putting aside their vampire costumes.
No one spoils Cupid’s plans. Not even actors and actresses who work hours together and swear they don’t feel anything for each other. Or who explain that those flirtatious glances they give each other are just part of the plot, and they don’t really feel them at all (of course not...). Several pairs of actors have taken their fictional bond to reality. Some have even been pretend siblings and something more off set.
The entire franchise of Twilight has made well over $1 billion worldwide from movie tickets. So, it has created and maintained a massive fan base that, even after all these years, are still obsessing over the movies’ stars. And we can’t help but imagine just how different the movies would have been if different actors had been cast. And if the actors that were cast were closer to how the books described them.
In fact, the female stars often get pregnant during filming. In many instances, scriptwriters find a way to incorporate the real pregnancy into the script. But in other cases, they just use close-ups and items to hide the actresses’ bellies.
Almost every movie has at least 1 fault, either it’s a continuity issue or a problem with the items used in the movie. For example, it could be a cup of coffee that has changed places from one shot to the other. Or it could be a piece of clothing that hadn’t been invented just yet. Luckily, some viewers are such hawkeyes that notice even the smallest mistake.
Although filmmakers have a lot at their disposal to know what historical eras were really like and recreate them on film, they sometimes deliberately sacrifice credibility to create a fascinating or eye-catching plot. As a result, misconceptions about certain events and personalities take root in viewers’ minds.
