Hands up if you love movies! Both hands up if you love secrets and hidden gems in your favourite films!
It’s these little things that keep the audience on their toes whenever they go in for a cinematic adventure. From cartoons to comedies, and action movies to dramas; movie Easter eggs are everywhere.
We have taken the liberty to list down some of our favourites. Enjoy!
1. Lilo and Stitch (2002)
What a cute & unusual dynamic duo we have here. In the beginning of the movie as Lilo watches the falling star, a little Dumbo toy is featured in the left side of the scene. That’a nice change to the usual hidden Mickey.
2. Aladdin (1992)
As Rajah the tiger transforms back to his usual self once Jafar is defeated, we can catch a brief moment where he resembles the famous Disney mascot, Mickey Mouse. Have you spotted other #HiddenMickeys in Disney’s movies?
3. Fight Club (1999)
Who loves coffee? Director, David Fincher, said that there’s a Starbucks cup in every shot in the movie. Now that’s a caffeine overload!
4. Star Trek (2009)
JJ Abrams is known for his lens flare gimmicks throughout so many of his movies. If you take a look closely at his reboot of Star Trek, we see a familiar little droid. Is the one we’ve been looking for? Could this also have hinted at Abrams’ attempt at the recent Star Wars installments?
5. Big Hero 6 (2014)
Evil Prince Hans from Frozen is featured in the movie during the team superhero montage and gets blown to dust! #Ouch
6. I Am Legend (2007)
Another movie forecast? Comic book enthusiasts are sure got excited when they spotted this movie poster.
7. The Watchmen (2009)
As you can tell, we’re totally excited about the upcoming Batman/Superman movie. During the awesome slow-mo introduction credits of this alternate timeline superhero movie, we get a peak of Bruce Wayne’s parents.
8. King Kong (2005)
In the Jack Black, King Kong movie. In the scene where the ship approaches Skull Island, the crew receives a message in Morse code supposedly announcing a warrant for Mr Black’s arrest. However, it is actually a bunch of beeps translated to “Show me the monkey!”. Nicely done, guys…
9. Tron (1982)
The original Tron was a masterpiece of computer generated graphics. At that point in time, the perfect nod to computers and the gaming world was perfectly composed in a map featuring Pac-Man.
10. Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Yay! Another Star Wars goody! George Lucas nicely strings all of his fictional universes together seamlessly here. Check out the hieroglyphs carefully. You are sure to spot two very familiar and lovable droid sketches.
