An early script for the film Gladiator included the gladiators endorsing products in the arena. While historically accurate, it was removed for being unbelievable to audiences.
After filming Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola wanted the film to be a special event, playing in exactly one theater in Kansas – the geographical center of the USA. The theater would be built especially for the film with a unique surround sound system, and would run continuously for 10 years.
Early Russian silent movies often had two endings — a tragic one for the home market and a happy one for export. Conversely, foreign movies at the time often were made with a happy ending for the home audience and a tragic ending, specifically for Russia.
Keanu Reeves was a last choice for the role of “Neo” from The Matrix. Brad Pitt was first to accept before declining. Leonardo DiCaprio later accepted before declining. Others considered were Will Smith, Nicolas Cage, Sandra Bullock, Johnny Depp, Kevin Costner, David Duchovny, and Tom Cruise.
Movies and TV shows are not real, but it’s still pretty darn annoying when we see things in them that are totally unrealistic.
You know you see these kinds of things all the time, right?
A funny Twitter thread saw users speaking out about the things that they consider very annoying when it comes to how real life is inaccurately portrayed on TV and in the movies.
Let’s take a look.
1. Gulpin’ ’em down.
That is kinda weird.
What, if anything, can ruin a tv show/film for you?
Mine is actors unrealistically drinking hot drinks

2. See you later!
Doesn’t work that way.
People getting out of bed and getting dressed, then going straight out without having a wee or a shower or cleaning their teeth. Mad.

3. Get it right!
Chess players don’t like this.
Games of chess where the position on the board is highly implausible, or the board is the wrong way round.

4. Let’s see the drool.
When they brush their teeth and there’s no toothpaste foam or drool. I DEMAND REALISM. https://t.co/Nhq3Lo6G6i

5. Hey, sis!
Never said this in my life.
Brothers and sisters calling each other ‘bro’ and ‘sis’ so that audiences understand their relationship. I’ve never called my brother bro. He’s never called me sis. Two brothers might be more natural as men say ‘bro’ sometimes anyway… other than it PISSES ME OFF.

6. That’s just creepy.
And totally weird.

7. Get it right, designers!
Come on, you have a big budget.
Getting fashion and decor wrong in programmes set between 1940-1990

8. Right into the river!
That doesn’t seem right…
People running up a familiar London St, turning a corner and ending up at the river which should be miles away

9. Ummmm, that’s delicious.
People reacting too quickly to something being delicious after taking a bite. This also pisses me off in real life. Don’t patronise me. https://t.co/R5XeuxPi8i
— Nooruddean (@BeardedGenius) July 20, 2017
10. I’m late!
Gotta go! Out the door!
The people keep cooking THE MOST at breakfast: eggs, bacon, pancakes… And then they take one bite and leave the house??? https://t.co/xHKB78tMXU

11. Where’s the mouse?
Riddle me that!
Any scene involving computers, it’s like the concept of a mouse doesn’t exist in TV/film

12. How do you afford this place?
Especially in New York City.
People with low-income jobs living in tastefully decorated massive loft apartments. https://t.co/0U5lDVIrcZ

13. The bra stays on.
Ladies…let’s hear the truth.
In American tv and films women are always in bed with a bra on, even after sex when they get out of the bed their bra is on
