Cult of Chucky picture

Trivia: There's a rather odd joke in which Chucky comments that he can't believe the television show "Hannibal" was cancelled. While it might seem strange for Chucky to say this, this is actually a bit of an inside joke, as writer/director Don Mancini wrote and produced several episodes of the show "Hannibal."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 picture

Trivia: Vin Diesel was given a special "Groot" version of the script that contained "translations" of what Groot was actually saying whenever he utters his one and only repeated sentence "I am Groot." This was done to help him deliver his dialog appropriately, since he would know exactly what point Groot was trying to get across with each line. Reportedly, only Diesel was given this version of the script - in everyone else's script, Groot's dialog is merely "I am Groot" over and over again.

Jigsaw picture

Trivia: The film is edited by Kevin Greutert, who edited "Saw" 1-5, and directed the sixth and seventh films. Greutert is one of only a few holdover crewmembers from the original run of the series to return. He said he felt an obligation to be a part of "Jigsaw"- feeling that given his past with the series, he should help usher the franchise into the new direction that the producers and writers wanted to take, while also helping to maintain ties to what came before.

It (2017)

It picture

Trivia: Bill Skarsgård was purposely kept separated from the child-actors during filming, and outside of some early publicity photos, the kids never saw him until the first scene they filmed together in order to get their genuine reactions. The kids were both genuinely scared of him, but also incredibly excited after filming their first scene.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets picture

Trivia: Igon Sirruss tells Valerian "I will find you and I will kill you," to which Valerian replies "Good luck." This dialog exchange is taken almost word-for-word from the film "Taken" as a bit of an inside joke, as "Valerian" director Luc Besson was also the producer and co-writer of the "Taken" film trilogy.

The Shape of Water picture

Trivia: There were rumors right up until the release that the film was a prequel to the 2004 superhero movie "Hellboy" - in no small part because both films feature an amphibious man played by actor Doug Jones as one of the lead characters, and both films were also directed by Guillermo del Toro. Despite the widespread speculation, del Toro consistently denied any plot or character associations between "The Shape of Water" and the Hellboy films.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle picture

Trivia: Taron Egerton refused to shoot the scene where he implants the tracking device into Charlie's girlfriend's groin, as he felt uncomfortable touching the actress in that area. The hand we see reaching down into the woman's underwear is actually the hand of the actress' husband, who gladly volunteered to "double" for Egerton's hand in that scene.

Logan picture

Trivia: It was comedian Jerry Seinfeld of all people that gave Hugh Jackman the idea to retire from the role of Wolverine. Jackman was attending a diner party with Seinfeld and asked him how he knew when it was time to end his legendary sitcom. Seinfeld told him "You need to leave something in the tank. If you feel like, 'OK, I think we might have said everything but there is still a little bit left, ' then that's the time to go." Jackman took it to heart and decided to go out on a high note and make the best film he possibly could to end his tenure as Wolverine, and considers "Logan" to be the most personal of all of his portrayals of the character.

The Mummy picture

Trivia: At one point, Jenny grabs a large book and hits a man over the head with it during a scuffle. She actually hits him with a book that is modeled to look similar to the "Book of the Dead" from the 1999 "Mummy" film, and even includes the star-shaped key-hole cover. A cute "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" inside-joke thrown in as a nod to the previous "Mummy" franchise.

Rings picture

Trivia: While the film was mildly financially successful (bringing in over $80 million worldwide on a relatively small $25 million budget), it was seen as a disappointment for the studio, bringing in only about half the gross of its immediate predecessor ("The Ring Two"), and only about 1/3 the total gross of the first film. ("The Ring") Due to the film under-performing, the studio Paramount put an indefinite hold on another planned franchise revival - "Friday the 13th", fearing it would similarly perform below expectations.
