    45 Brilliant Beyond Brilliant 2020s Movie Details That'll Change The Way You Watch These Films

    If you watch Adam Sandler's Hubie Halloween (2020) closely, you'll notice Ben Stiller reprised his role as the mean orderly from another Adam Sandler movie: Happy Gilmore (1996).

    Something I honestly never get tired of is rewatching a movie and discovering hidden details and Easter eggs I didn't notice the first time around. Movies from the 2020s are chock-full of them so far, and they've blown me away!

    Like in the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer, fans noticed a heartwarming detail we'll get to view in full context in November 2022. In the movie, it looks as if they'll honor Chadwick Boseman's legacy as T'Challa/Black Panther with a gorgeous mural (and I'm guessing in various other meaningful ways).
