We've all seen the movies after Hollywood has had their chance to piece them together, but what about those moments behind-the-scenes that we, the audience, never get to see? In this installment, we'll look at just that, 10 behind-the-scenes photos from BIG MOVIES!
This image shows the late Heath Ledger and actor Christian Bale enjoying some bonding time on the set of "Dark Knight”. Besides seeing Heath enjoying the time he had, this image is great simply for the sake of Joker doing a kickflip over Batman, which, in reality, isn’t really that farfetched of an event to those who know anything about the character.
Come Play With Us
Here's a rare shot of the young actresses Lisa and Louise Burns from their set of Stanley Kubrick's, The Shining. We all remember the scene for what it is... eerie and perfectly creepy. The sad story is the girls were shunned for awhile, due to their roles in the movie, leaving Jack Nicholson to fill in as an unlikely father figure.
With the Muppets being so prominent in the upbringing of many generations, it's truly wonderful to see this powerful image. The late Jim Henson and arguably his most iconic muppet of all time Kermit the Frog. As the saying goes, "it's not easy being green", but we imagine it helps a lot to have a friend like Jim Henson.
Days Of Future Past
No, we aren't talking about the X-Men, but instead of this picture of Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman on the set of 2006's Marie Antoinette, sporting some technology that just doesn't fit the costume. It isn't often times we get to see the two times meshed together so nonchalantly as it seems to have been captured here.
Carrie Fisher may forever be the most cosplayed human being ever, with great things like her skimpy bikini that Jabba the Hut made her wear... and we don't blame him. Here in this picture, it's plain to see why she has been renown as a heartthrob to the Star Wars community... I mean, who can blame them after all?
Arnold As The Little Guy
This behind the scenes photo shows the kind hearted Andre the Giant along with Wilt Chamberlain and Arnold Schwarzenegger on the set of Conan the Destroyer, the 1984 sequel to Conan the Barbarian. It's really a little surreal seeing Wilt and Andre tower over the 6'2" Arnold, let alone seeing him suspended from their arms.
The Many Hats Of Charlie Chaplin
Known for doing the full gambit, Charlie Chaplin was a writer, director and often times movie star for the same films. Here in this picture, you can see a little bit of that reflected. It's good to see a boss willing to get down and dirty with the rest of the crew of course - which is evident as the "The Little Champ" sits slumped in his director's chair.
Good To Be A Goodfella
Director Martin Scorsese seems to be right at home in this picture, sitting between actors Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta on the set of his mobster classic, Goodfellas. We as viewers often times don't get to see the chemistry between director and actor, so a shot like this is always good to have in the archives. Really, though, couldn't you have seen Scorsese acting right along with the others?
Behind the Metal
Legendary robotic characters R2-D2 and C-3PO were always, in fact, more man than machine, as is evident with this behind-the-scenes picture from the original set. It shows both Kenny Baker who played R2 and Anthony Daniels as the fellow droid, C-3PO. As it turns out, this image is slightly misleading, as Kenny had made it known on numerous occasions about his dislike for Anthony, claiming him to be "the rudest person I've ever met." Either way, this is a pretty nice picture for the fans. Oh yeah, and here's a quick picture of C-3PO drinking through a straw for the heck of it.
It's Not All About Terminating
Sometimes it's about the good times to be had with co-workers and friends, as is shown in this picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger and director James Cameron on the set of Terminator. Sometimes in the midst of all the scripted and fake killing, you just have to sit back, talk to a friend and share a laugh to ease the mood.
