- Titanic 3D (2012)
When James Cameron was asked about any changes in the re-released version of the 1997 Titanic, he said that he had fixed a minor mistake in the 3D version of the movie. He quoted,” Oh, there is one shot that I fixed. It’s because Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is one of the US’ leading astronomers, sent me quite a snarky email saying that, at that time of year, in that position in the Atlantic in 1912, when Rose is lying on the piece of driftwood and staring up at the stars, that is not the star field she would have seen, and with my reputation as a perfectionist, I should have known that and I should have put the right star field in. So I said, ‘All right, you son of a bitch, send me the right stars for the exact time, 4:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, and I’ll put it in the movie.’ So that’s the one shot that has been changed.”

- Fight Club (1999) and Memento (2000)
Marla Singer from “Fight Club” and John Gammel from “Memento” happen to have the same phone number (555 0134). Coincidence? I don’t think so.
- The Dark Knight (2008)
Michael Caine, who played the role of Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred, was so terrified by Heath Ledger’s entrance that he forgot his lines. This was the first time he saw Heath playing “The Joker,” and the reaction that you see in the movie is 100% real.

Will Smith was approached to play Neo in The Matrix. Can you imagine Will Smith playing “The One”? At least, I can’t.
- Inception (2010)
No VFX were used to create the rotating hotel corridor scene. They used Real-life massive sets instead. Joseph Gordon Levitt had to balance himself to stay steady. Nolan, you genius son of a bitch!
