You’ve finally done it! You’ve created a simulator that allows you to copy yourself into the apps on your phone to learn faster. You plug your phone in, open Google, and put on a helmet with goggles to get a 360˚ view. After hooking them up, you call your sister to activate the machine.She’s not answering you, so you head to her bedroom, where you see her doing a TikTok dance challenge. You tease her for it and pester her to activate the machine downstairs. She follows you while still using TikTok. She gets upset and, without you looking, changes the homepage on your phone to TikTok. She then activates the machine.
People make mistakes, and celebrities are no exception. You can’t be 100% sure whether a film will fail or get lots of awards and become a box-office hit. We have found out what iconic roles our favorite actors narrowly missed and why it happened. And at the end of the article, you will find out what film Madonna turned down.
To be an actor, you have to be able to transform into anyone. Still, many stars get stuck playing the same types of characters. But the people from this article are not like that. Throughout their careers, they have changed dramatically and amazed us every single time.

What’s going on? Everything seems to be moving so fast. You’re going through a wormhole of some kind and can’t stop. You’re moving faster and faster until you see the light at the end. Suddenly, it’s all black. You wake up after a few seconds in a pixilated world. You’re in some kinda forest surrounded by giant trees and rocks. You get up and look around you.

Some directors just love adding so-called Easter Eggs to their movies. They are small details for the most attentive viewers.

Now that we know these secrets, we can watch our favorite movies again.
The audience had to wait for the release of the new Avatar movie for a long 13 years. The main characters of the film are the people of Na’vi who live on the planet Pandora. And they look super-realistic thanks to motion capture technology and the famous actors who play them. We decided to compare the photos of real actors and actresses and their characters in the movie Avatar: The Way of Water, and we were struck by how different they look (though some facial features are still recognizable).
Unlike the original Avatar, where actors like Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang, and Sigourney Weaver were prominently featured in their own bodies, Avatar: The Way of Water shows the cast as avatars for the majority of its 3-hour runtime. That’s why we decided to uncover the actors who brought the characters of Pandora to life by finding out who is hiding behind the special effects.
James Cameron’s first science fiction movie about the indigenous people of Pandora was released in 2009 and became a game changer in the movie industry.

We decided to use the potential of AI and see what the avatars of some celebrities would look like.
From one film to another, movie creators continue surprising viewers with their talent. And some of the most amazing people in the industry are makeup artists.

While we mostly know popular actors and directors, makeup artists are often sidelined. So, we decided to find out who’s behind the appearance of our favorite movie characters.
Have you ever thought about Earth itself as an intelligent, well, not creature, but maybe an entity? Like it has a mind and some survival instincts of its own. When said like this, it sounds like you’re about to watch a fantasy movie where the planet we walk and live our daily lives on will suddenly wake up, realize it doesn’t like us that much after all, and just go crazy. Hope not.
James Cameron’s 2009 film Avatar broke several records worldwide, making it one of the most influential films of all time. It is not only the highest-grossing film at the box office, but it is also the highest-grossing science fiction film and the most-watched original film (not sequel) in the world. Despite being an unsurpassed technical achievement, there are some details that the filmmakers overlooked and that the most observant fans have noticed over the years.
Some movie viewers that don’t know a lot about the cinematography might think that any actor is willing to do anything just to get the main role in a film. But this isn’t really true. Quite often, for different reasons, stars decide to refuse to portray roles, even if the directors beg them to take them on.
Some directors love adding the so-called Easter Eggs into their films. They are minor details that only the most attentive viewers will notice. There are entire communities on social media who talk about them.
There are many celebrities who have always had a close relationship with Hollywood thanks to their family.

Some events leave such a deep imprint in history and culture that they become the markers of the era. Some of them seem very recent, and others don’t.

Millions of tourists around the world keep visiting the same places, year after year, taking the same photos of famous landmarks. And this is because most people are simply used to doing so.

Avatar is a movie that many of us remember and enjoy, not only because of its amazing story, but also because of the incredible world that it showed. It was such a successful movie that it even ranked as the highest-grossing film ever. It wasn’t until Avengers: Endgame came along in 2019 that Avatar was surpassed. The second part of this saga is scheduled for release in 2022, so we will finally be able to find out how Jake Sully’s journey continues. In the meantime, we’d like to go down memory lane to remember the faces of the actors that brought these beloved characters to our screens.

Some films and movies are captivating because of their unique characters or visuals. And oftentimes, the last part of a trilogy or the final episode of a series leaves us feeling sad. Fortunately, successful franchises don’t like going away forever and some of them return to the screen to make us happy again.
For many people, knowing they are going to be parents brings them lots of happiness. However, if they later find out that, instead of one, they’ll be bringing 2 babies into this world, everything becomes twice as difficult, since 2 kids demand an enormous amount of time, love, care, and attention. And all of this may be even harder for celebrity parents—not only do they have to take care of 2 babies, but they also have to fulfill their commitments in front of the camera.
There are movies that we are ready to watch over and over again, just because of their high-quality. We empathize with the characters, follow the storyline, and don’t even think about how all the events are staged.

Film production is a tricky business, where plans can be ruined in the blink of an eye. Today we’re used to seeing Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and we could hardly imagine Hugh Jackman taking the lead. However, he was the first choice of the scriptwriter for Pirates of the Caribbean.
The idea of making sequels to popular movies is almost as old as moviemaking itself, but it really took off in the 1970’s when movies got the idea to make numbered sequels, like The Godfather 2 or French Connection II. And Hollywood hasn’t taken a break since then.

Hollywood loves keeping a good story going and it’s not the only movie with a follow-up in the works.

Game of Thrones, The Avengers, Avatar, The Lord of the Rings. All of these blockbusters have some incredible scenery that seems to be pure fantasy, but it’s actually not.

So, if you thought that you could only see them on TV or on a movie screen, now you know that you can actually witness them in real life.
Did you know that Charlie Chaplin once came 3rd in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest? Such is the magic of makeup. It can transform a person completely and give them a brand-new personality.

But there are a few cases where stars decided to shun makeup and give us a glimpse of their beautiful but less glamorous self.

And today we present the coolest and the nicest stuntmen from very popular movies.
