When most people watch a movie, they tend to focus mostly on the storyline and not so much on what is happening in the background. If that sounds like you, don’t feel bad – it just means you’re part of the 99% of people who watch movies to relax, not obsess of every tiny detail to see if the director purposefully hid something in the background. We however are like that, and after pouring over some of the most popular films in cinematic history we found some of the most surprising (and in some cases, shocking) hidden messages and easter eggs that the vast majority of the population probably has no idea about. Check out this list, and prepare to never be able to watch a movie the same way again knowing that something is almost always happening in the background!
âThe Familiar Hieroglyphs Hidden In Raiders Of The Lost Ark
Most movie junkies probably know that George Lucas not only created Star Wars but also co-created and co-wrote the Indiana Jones movies. But there’s a very good chance that most people who watched Raiders of the Lost Arc completely missed the hidden message Lucas decided to include in the background, which makes reference to the former franchise.
If you take a closer look at the hieroglyphs spread all over the ancient temple’s walls, you’ll quickly realize that the R2-D2 and C-3PO’s images are beautifully referenced there. This wasn’t the only time that Lucas added a hidden message in a movie, making reference to another movie of his. For instance, in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indie attempts to escape “Club Obi-Wan”.
