8 Widespread Movie “Facts” That Are Totally Untrue

28 Sep

Luke Skywalker Empire Strikes Back

Movie fans will often find themselves exposed to the same pieces of information or trivia over and over again, to the point where things we’ve never actually looked up for ourselves or officially confirmed become fully-fledged facts. You believe them “just ’cause.” This isn’t entirely our fault, because most of the time we just want to believe things because they sound cool, and there’s no real reason to doubt the person telling us: I mean, why would they make it up?

In actuality, there are tons of movie-based “facts” out there that have been circulating for years, none of which are grounded in any truth at all. And who knows how these things start? A misquote somewhere, a piece of information taken out of context, somebody getting something wrong by accident… the possibilities that give rise to such instances are presumably endless. But by the time they’re ingrained into movie culture, it’s near-on impossible to phase them out.

Take the 8 widespread movie facts that I’ve gathered for inclusion on this list, then, all of which you’ve probably heard from somebody or have even passed on a one point (I know I have), on the basis that they’re famous or well-known movie facts. In reality, not a single one of these facts are true at all, and have been exacerbated, fabricated or – in some cases – conjured up out of thin air.

Shawshank Redemption

If it’s possible to watch a movie without thinking about it too much, I don’t wanna know about it. Sure, most movies can be viewed in a daze or drunken stupor and still prove entertaining, but there are lots of motion pictures out there that reward viewers for obsessing over them in ways that probably warrant a trip to the mental health clinic afterwards. Thing is, filmmakers love to include little jokes, references, moments of foreshadowing or plot-based clues for people to discover during a second or third viewing – it’d be rude not to acknowledge them.

And if there’s one thing I hate, it’s rudeness, which is why I’ve assembled 10 amazing hidden clues you probably never noticed in classic movies – clues that directly refer to moments that occur later in the movie, cleverly sum up entire plot points, or secretly explain everything you wanted to know about the ending of a flick in a single sentence. Sometimes they even offer us up extra information. In most cases, these little gems have simply been overlooked by the population at large, given how tricky they are to spot… how many did you already know, then?

Please note, there are spoilers for all the movies included on this list contained within.
