11 Times People Found Little Details in Movies, and We Can’t Believe We Missed Them

year ago

Film producers love sending hidden messages to their audience using little details. They can hide a story in the background of a scene or make the characters say things with other meanings. And here we are, digging deeper to understand that “secret language.”

Bright Side knows how much you enjoy finding hidden details in movies. So let’s scroll through our new findings and see what we have yet to discover.

1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a newspaper states that a witch named Amelia Bones was found murdered at her home. She was the witch that defended the wizard in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

2. Chip ’n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers (2022)

In Chip ’n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers, you can see that Dobby the House Elf became a model for Gucci after the Harry Potter series wrapped.

3. Turning Red (2022)

In Turning Red, these 2 girls have blue patches on their arms. They’re actually “insulin infusion sets” for type-1 diabetes. Susan Fong, the technical supervisor of the movie, was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes as a child.

4. Don’t Look Up (2021)

In Don’t Look Up, just as Kate is telling her boyfriend, “A comet bigger than the one that destroyed the dinosaurs is headed directly at Earth,” right at that moment, a guy wearing a dinosaur outfit is seen in the background.

5. Your Name. (2016)

In Your Name., Mitsuha and Teshi are seen turning a tree into their makeshift café, which is why one of the trees in the town is later missing.

6. Hercules (1997)

In Hercules, Hades says, “Guys, relax. It’s only half-time,” exactly at the 46-minute mark, the halfway point of the 92-minute movie.

7. Home Alone (1990)

In Home Alone, when they’re counting the people for the trip, they say there are 17 people in total. An odd number between 2 vans means they will be split by 8 and 9. Since Kevin was missing, both vans had 8 people instead, making each group assume they were on the 8-person van, not suspecting a thing.

8. Rocky (1976)

Talia Shire was suffering from the flu during filming, and she was worried about getting Sylvester Stallone ill, which is why Adrian hesitated to kiss Rocky in his apartment after their date. It ended up being better than the planned scene, so it was kept in the movie.

9. Knives Out (2019)

In Knives Out, Ransom’s sweater has a ripped collar and several noticeable holes. The costume designer added this detail to show Ransom’s nonchalance toward his wealth and disrespect for his family.

10. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

In Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban, a wizard is reading Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History Of Time.

11. House of the Dragon (2022)

In House of the Dragon, episode 3, King Viserys I Targaryen is wearing a glove with several green fingers instead of being edited to have missing fingers. However, viewers weren’t meant to see the green glove.

What’s the strangest detail you’ve noticed in a film or TV show? Which popular movie surprised you the most?
