If you blink, you might miss something

That certainly goes for life in general but you can also apply that old adage to movies…because there are a lot of hidden details in them that usually have to be pointed out to you if you haven’t been tipped off about them.

Check out these examples and see if you noticed them before.

A classic comedy!

In The Naked Gun (1988): The Police Lab door’s label is half-mirrored; "Lab" is reversed to be readable from the inside. from MovieDetails

3. What’s he doing there?

Makes you think…

In LOTR: The Fellowship of The Ring (2001), you can see Pippin playing in the band at Bilbo’s party, before his proper introduction. Confirmed by Billy Boyd on the DVD commentary. from MovieDetails

4. How cool!

I bet you didn’t know that one!

9. A nice scene was added in.

Can’t get enough of his voice!

In the Lego Movie (2014), Vitruvius says “All right, we gotta write all that down ’cause I’m not gonna remember any of it, but here we go.” This was actually an outtake of Morgan Freeman getting frustrated at his lines being changed. The directors added it in as a joke. from MovieDetails
