Predators picture

Trivia: The creature that hunts down the Doctor before being shot down by the Sniper girl is actually the original design of the Predator that was scrapped during Predator 1 due to issues with the costume and the jungle.

Clash of the Titans picture

Trivia: In a shot of Zeus sitting on the throne, Emma Thompson, in costume as Nanny McPhee, is actually hiding behind the throne - they were filming next to each other. The story was related during an interview - she sneaked on set during a break, sat on Liam Neeson's lap and said "I think you've been a very naughty boy". He suggested she stay when filming resumed, as the shot wasn't going to be on him anyway, but she didn't want to throw off Ralph Fiennes, so hid behind the throne to get out of the way, and a shot of it with her hidden behind, unseen, is in the movie.
