Cinephiles Found Curious Details in 10 Movies We Hadn’t Noticed Before
It’s no secret that making a movie is a difficult job. Directors create these stories for us and every single second of a good movie has a certain idea behind it. Some moments have hidden meanings and references to some cryptic things we’re supposed to figure out. But even huge fans and people very familiar with filmmaking often miss interesting and quite important details while watching a movie. Thankfully, there are some folks that have found these quirks in the old ones and shared them with everyone else.
Bright Side suggests that you take a look at these unexpected details we’ve captured from famous movies which are hard to catch if you’re not looking for them. They will make you love these movies even more than before.
10. Batman Begins
At the end of the first part of the trilogy that Christopher Nolan directed, Commissioner Gordon gives Batman a piece of evidence (a Joker card) which has a tag on it. At the bottom, you can see the name J. Kerr which is a reference to one of the Joker’s nicknames — Josef Kerr.
9. Harry Potter movies
The Warner Bros. intro of every next movie becomes darker and darker just like the movies themselves. Looks like a really huge fan noticed this, when he was rewatching all the parts in a row.
In one of the scenes, Hercules puts on a lion skin. Few people notice that, but if you look closely, you’ll see that it’s the skin of Scar from The Lion King.
In the episode where the android David looks at a drop on his finger, you can see the sign of Weyland-Yutani Corp on his fingerprint. Very few people noticed that because almost all viewers were looking at the drop, just like David.
6. Batman Returns
In Tim Burton’s Batman movie, there is an episode where you can see that Selina Kyle’s glasses make a shadow that looks like a mask. This really easy-to-miss moment hints at her transformation into Catwoman.

According to the director’s idea, Lester’s reflection in the monitor of his office computer demonstrates his emotions about his job. The screen, which looks like a prison cell, shows that there is no hope.

In the movie about Kevin McCallister’s adventures, there is one more movie which was filmed especially for Home Alone. Everyone remembers it from the episode where Kevin, enjoying his alone time, watches a noir movie. According to someone with a really keen eye for detail, this movie was specially shot for this scene.
