This Is How Much These Iconic Movie Cars Cost in Real Life

Think about some of the iconic movies featuring cars: Back to the FutureBullitt, heck, how about Herbie the Love Bug? A lot of times, cars play as big of a role in movies as actors do.

But how much do those bad boys cost in real life? The wait is now over! We have the answers!

Here’s how much 5 iconic movie cars would cost to buy today.

1. 1970 Dodge Charger – The Fast and the Furious

This baby costs a cool $85,000. The Fast and Furious franchise has really catapulted these muscle cars to the forefront. When they came out in 1970, they were only valued at $3,711. My, how times change…

2. 1966 Ford Thunderbird – Thelma & Louise

The actual car from the film sold for $71,500 in 2008. She sure is a beauty, ain’t she?

Just don’t drive it over a cliff, okay?

3. 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 – Back to the Future

Yes! One of the most iconic cars in cinematic history! The DeLorean driven by Marty McFly actually cost $25,000 when it was produced ($69,000 in today’s currency), and today the model is only valued at $32,378, according to recent sales. Kind of surprising, huh?

4. 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 Fastback – Bullitt

The streets and hills of San Francisco have never looked cooler than they did in 1968’s Bullitt with Steve McQueen. The film is famous for its car chase scenes throughout the extremely hilly city.

These models originally sold for $3,500 and now can fetch $80,000. Timeless and TOUGH.

5. 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Special Edition – Smokey and the Bandit

Burt Reynolds’ finest hour? Perhaps…though he was also pretty amazing in Deliverance, you must admit. But many people remember Reynolds for Smokey and the Bandit. And why not – just look at that Firebird!

The car originally cost $5,456, and they go for around $22,000 today. Not bad, not bad at all!

Sir Alec Guiness hated his role…

Sir Alec Guiness hated his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: “Apart from the money, I regret having embarked on the film,” calling the dialog “lamentable.” An autograph seeker told him he’d seen the movie over 100 times; he gave him an autograph on the condition he never see the movie again.

A Bot Wrote a Hilarious ‘John Wick’ Script and People Are Loving It

What if a computer wrote a screenplay? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

More specifically though… have you ever asked: what if a bot wrote John Wick?

You haven’t asked yourself EITHER of those questions? Well, you’re in luck because somebody on the internet did and then made it happen.

Keaton Patti is the genius behind many “bot-written” scripts that he’s posted on Twitter, and to say he’s killing it at the bot-written script game is an understatement.

That title! I’m official in love with this bot.

“You are out of horse, Mr. Dog!” Classic Wick.

So… what do you think? Are we at the point where bots should replace humans?

The answer is a resounding yes! At least from Keaton.

He even has visuals!

What more could you ask for Keanu? Get on that shit!

Get Ready for the New, Live Action ‘Little Mermaid’ Movie with This Amazing Fan Art

The decision to cast Halle Bailey as the next “Little Mermaid” has made some waves. If you haven’t heard of her, Bailey is half of the singing group Chloe x Halle and a star of Grown-ish. Although some fans don’t seem to be able to cope with Bailey’s casting, many more are embracing Disney’s casting choice, and they’re showing their love through some amazing art.

For example, there’s this adorable sketch:

And this outstanding work of digital art:

And this elegant portrait:

And this gorgeous, realistic portrait, complete with tail:

And this one, which celebrates my personal favorite Little Mermaid song:

And this rendering of an iconic scene from the original film, which was tweeted out by Bailey herself:

I love that a new generation of little girls are going to see themselves represented on screen. Here’s to Bailey’s success!

15 Movie Buffs Reveal the Opening Scenes That Lured Them in Best

There’s a theory among writers that if you don’t hook someone by the end of the first page, you might never get another chance – because they’ll stop reading (or watching) and try something else.

According to these movie buffs, though, you’ll be hooked from the very first scene of these 15 movies.

#15. Just perfect.

Kill Bill vol 1. The music as well that went with it ‘bang bang ‘ by nancy sinatra is just perfect

#14. The fight at the rave.

The opening scene of Blade, with the fight at the rave.

#13. Iconic.

The Lion King.

#12. Deliver us.

The opening scene of The Prince of Egypt. “Deliver Us”

#11. The tension and terror.

Scream.

The tension and terror were built up perfectly and the eventual killing of Drew Barrymore’s character was shocking. Not just in its brutality (which was quite graphic for its time), but because such a major name was killed off that soon into a movie. The opening kill is a tried and true horror trope, but it had never been done before with such a big name so early in a film.

For the rest of the film, every time you saw a big name show up (Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courtney Cox), you weren’t sure if they were going to make it to the end of the film or not.

#10. So eerie.

Jaws. So eerie. The bright moonlight shining down on the ocean and a swimming girl. And then the ocean is empty again.

#9. American Psycho.

.. I’m 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial masque which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.

I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.

#8. The Last Alliance.

The Last Alliance of Elves and Men, from “Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring”.

#7. Shoot her!

Because I just saw it last night: Jurassic Park.

“SHOOT HER! SHOOOOOOT HER!”

#6. It set the mood.

A Clockwork Orange.

It set the mood for that entire movie.

#5. It just takes off.

The “Dawn of the Dead” remake was one of my favorite opening scenes. When the little neighbor girl comes in their bedroom and bites the husband, shit just takes off and it is an intense ride. Really got me into the movie.

#4. An overwhelmingly sad story.

It’s going to sound weird, but The Rescuers. I hadn’t seen that movie in about a decade-and-a-half when I picked up the Blu-Ray during a local sale. I… was also rather smashed when I was watching it. Anyway, I’m watching it after a few drinks when the opening comes on.

It’s almost like how, when you’re a kid and you don’t realize that you’ve heard what is an adult joke because you were too pure and innocent? Well… as an adult, it truly hits just how overwhelmingly sad the story is, especially since the opening song, “The Journey” is almost like a lament. This is a young child who was taken against her will, in a situation where she could most certainly die and a note in a bottle is honestly her only real chance of escape.

I admit, I definitely cried the next few times I watched that movie. The same for the scene after Medusa insults Penny, although that was more due to pure rage.

#3. Cool.

Hot Rod.

“Kevin, did you reinforce the takeoff ramp?”

“No, we didn’t have time.”

#2. Super intense.

28 Weeks Later has an amazing longer opening but it is super intense and really sets the tone for an average movie

#1. “As far back as I can remember…”

Goodfellas

“As far back as I could remember, I always wanted to be a gangster…”

You’ll have to give them all a try for yourself!

Charlie Chaplin made…

Charlie Chaplin made the Hitler mocking film, “The Great Dictator”, in 1940 using his own money because none of the Hollywood studios were comfortable irking the Germans as they had financial relations with them. The film is said to be one of the greatest works of Charlie Chaplin.

Although being a giant box office…

Although being a giant box office success, movie theater business was less enthused about the movie “A Quiet Place” because the ambiance of the movie was such that any type of loud eating was shamed leading to people not buying any food. Cinemas normally earn more from food than tickets.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s salary…

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s salary for T2: Judgement day was $15 million and total words spoken by him in the entire film is 700. This attributes to $21,429 per word and the line ”Hasta la vista, baby” amounts to $85,716.

In 2007, the Russian company…

In 2007, the Russian company Rossiya broadcasted television footage showcasing the Russians planting a flag at the bottom of the ocean in the North Pole. A 13 year old boy from Finland noticed some of the footage the station used was from the film Titanic.
