12. The Usual Suspects
Fun fact: The film’s director, Bryan Singer, convinced each of the main cast members — Gabriel Byrne, Benicio Del Toro, Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Spacey, and Kevin Pollak — privately that they were actually the mysterious crime boss Keyser Söze. It wasn’t until an early screening of the film that the whole cast found out the true plot twist.
Fun fact: Both Braveheart and Apollo 13 were nominated for Academy Award for Best Picture — which Braveheart would go on to win — and as a gag, Mel Gibson took out an ad which read, “For Your Consideration Best Moon Shot,” and accompanying it was a photo of the scene of Scottish army mooning the English.
26. Batman Forever
Fun fact: Tim Burton was originally supposed to direct Batman Forever — with Michael Keaton reprising his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman — but after the second installment of the franchise, Batman Returns, was deemed too dark for children, he was dropped from the project and replaced with Joel Schumacher.
29. Toy Story
Fun fact: The movie almost didn’t get made. In 1993, Pixar showed Disney early reels and storyboards for the movie. Disney was unimpressed, as they felt that both Woody and Buzz were sarcastic, unlikeable characters and that the movie was not fun. Fearful that Disney would kill the project, the film’s director, John Lasseter, along with the producers and writers, set out to turn the movie around, and they did it in just three months.
