top-20-most-memorable-roles-of-brad-pitt

The filmography of Brad Pitt on an excellent half consists of fantastic characters: demigods, heroes of alternative history, or someone inflamed and longing for absolute consciousness. And this, of course, is no accident. We talk about the 20 most memorable roles of Pitt, who tirelessly quenches the audience's longing for the ideal.

 

Brad Pitt movies

 

True Romance, 1993

Not all of Brad Pitt's best roles have been major ones. We open the list with an unexpected film by Tony Scott, in which Pitt has a cameo but underestimated role. The scriptwriter of True Love was Quentin Tarantino, who gave Pitt's hero Floyd the phrases that went to the people. Throughout the film, Floyd lies on the couch and smokes marijuana; in the picture's credits, he is listed as "Dick's neighbor."

Despite being constantly in the background, Pitt manages to vie for audience attention with Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, and Dennis Hopper. Aside from this fun and story-setting performance, True Love is worth watching for the brilliant performances of Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette in the central roles.

 

Legends of the Fall, 1994

In Legends of the Fall, Brad Pitt plays Tristan, one of the three sons of a single father who lived in the Montana desert in the early 1900s. The epic drama based on the novel by Jim Harrison tells about great love and war, about the fate of the brothers, and all the losses and betrayals that have befallen them. The timing of this picture is appropriate for those that seem like a lifetime.

Pitt is young and boasts golden curls, a mathematically symmetrical face, bright blue eyes, and excellent physical shape. But initially, the equally young Johnny Depp claimed the role of Tristan. It's good that the choice fell on Pitt. The film can charm any unprepared viewer, so beautifully he plays the one suffering from pain - these sufferings suit Pitt.

 

Twelve Monkeys, 1995

Science fiction mystery by Terry Gilliam. Convicted James Cole (Bruce Willis) travels back in time to find out who released the virus that wiped out most of the people. Brad Pitt plays Jeffrey Goines, an animal rights activist and the son of a virologist, whom Cole met in a psychiatric hospital in 1990. He becomes the prime suspect, but it will take Cole much more than one time jump to prevent future tragedy.

To get into the role, Pitt consulted with a psychiatrist, trying to grasp the difference in behavior between mentally ill people and those who suffer from conduct disorders but whose mental health is relatively safe. Pitt's efforts were rewarded: he was nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe for this role.

 

Se7en, 1995

It seems like a classic: a young detective works with a veteran investigator who only dreams of an upcoming quiet retirement, but in the performance of David Fincher, such a trite story turns into a dark thriller about the temptation of evil.

Brad Pitt plays Mills, a headstrong rookie who, along with the seasoned Morgan Freeman's Somerset, tracks down a zealot serial killer who puts on a macabre performance about the seven deadly sins. One of Fincher's best and darkest films, and a brilliant performance by Pitt. The final scene with his participation is, without a doubt, one of the most memorable in his entire career, and indeed in the history of cinema at the end of the 20th century.

 

Troy, 2004

Bringing the story of the Trojan War to the screen was not easy, but it certainly proved to be within the power of the talented director Wolfgang Petersen. And the best thing about this timeless epic about love, war, gods, and people is Brad Pitt as the great demigod warrior Achilles.

To appear before the public as a deity, Pitt followed a strict diet for more than six months and attended grueling daily workouts. And after some time, he lived as a hermit in a centuries-old hut in Mexico to understand the character's loneliness. Since he was perfect for this role, it is only natural to see him as a Greek warrior to this day. Another impressive fact from the set: Pitt and his primary opponent in the story Eric Bana (he played the role of Hector) refused stunt doubles for their epic fight but instead agreed to pay each other money for each accidental injury.

 

Fight Club, 1999

The role of Tyler Durden in "Fight Club" became a turning point for Pitt and finally approved him as the hottest guy on the big screen. Chuck Palahniuk, the author of the novel, later recounted how, during filming, Pitt thanked the writer for "the best role of his life." And although critics coldly received the film immediately after the premiere, it has gained a considerable number of fans and cult status over time.

 

 

This story about desperate young people starts with street fights and ends with a world revolution. The conspirators are brought to the boiling point by different but equally hot questions: from social inequality to an existential crisis and a thirst for higher justice. As the movement leader, Pitt delivers one immortal speech after another, attracting an entire army of angry young men under his banner. Brad's performance is charming, nasty, sexy, and intimidating. But most importantly, here, he is disarmingly charismatic; that is, he has everything that is necessary for the role of the ideal alter ego of the downtrodden office clerk played by Edward Norton.

 

Burn After Reading, 2008

With Joel and Ethan Coen, Brad Pitt starred in a small but rare comedic role for him as fitness instructor Chad. He was accompanied by George Clooney, Frances McDormand, and John Malkovich. The film is about two gym employees who try to sell the memoirs of a CIA agent to the Russian embassy under the guise of valuable information.

Ethan and Joel originally wrote the character with an eye on Brad Pitt and did not fail: no one looks as comical in a business suit on a bicycle, does not chew gum, and does not get involved in spy games with the disarming simplicity of an average man who has seen enough Hollywood trash. And even costume designer Mary Zophres, while working on the film, noticed that even cheap suits sit well on Brad. When his character Chad first meets Osborne Cox, he introduces himself as Mr. Black, the same name given to Pitt's character in Meet Joe Black.

 

Inglourious Basterds, 2009

In Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino creates a brilliant alternate history of World War II. A group of Jewish American soldiers infiltrates Nazi-occupied France to destroy fascist leaders. The head of this squad is the brave and arrogant Lieutenant Aldo Rein (Brad Pitt) or Apache Aldo, who teaches his people to be "cruel to the Germans" in Apache, collecting scalps.

Tarantino tries to make the story as ironic as possible, and Pitt helps him greatly in this. Here, with a fake scar on his neck, he jokes in complete rude and harsh jokes with the accent of a former moonshiner from Tennessee. What is the scene in which he pretends to be an Italian film director in front of the SS commander, desperately using all his poor vocabulary! And even if you're not a fan of Tarantino films, Pitt's impressive, darkly hilarious performance as Aldo is hard to underestimate.

 

Ad Astra, 2019

In James Gray's Ad Astronaut, Pitt plays astronaut Roy McBride on an unexpected mission to find his father, Cliff, who disappeared from radar ten years ago in outer space. Cliff searched for extraterrestrial intelligence when Roy was 16 and ultimately lost contact with Earth when Roy was 29. After an agonizing contemplation, McBride Jr. also leaves his family and goes on a commercial flight to the moon, which is the first leg of his journey.

 

Pitt endures almost the entire film on his shoulders. Most of the other characters are just fleeting shadows on the screen. In space, a person is primarily alone, especially if he prefers to be left there. Brad has come to a point where he can't rely on his comedy skills. Ad Astra is a beautiful but severe deadly film that casts Pitt as a man whose blatant depression virtually robs him of his emotions for years to come. So in this long journey, the viewer will have to be content with the tension with which his jaw muscles are tightly compressed and how inevitably and more and more clearly the wrinkles around the eyes appear.

 

Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, 2019

In Quentin Tarantino's best film, Brad Pitt teams up with fellow lead star Leonardo DiCaprio to form the perfect comedy duo. In a world where history meets fiction, two fictional characters, Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and Cliff Booth (Pitt) travel to 1969 to accidentally prevent the worst murder in the Hollywood Hills - the death of Roman Polanski's wife Sharon Tate at the hands of Charles Manson.

Cliff is Rick's double and stuntman in the films and his driver, housekeeper, and handyman when they're not filming together. He wears a denim jacket, does not have sex with minors, and seems to be hiding a dark past. A real brave cowboy in a fictional universe, he rebuffs Bruce Lee himself (which is why the film was never released in China). Playing Cliff, Brad Pitt received an Oscar for his supporting role and a Golden Globe.

 

Thelma and Louise, 1991

It can be considered that this particular role was a turning point in Pitt's career - although his name is not even on the promotional poster and in the opening credits, and the actor himself plays a sexy con man named JD who charms Geena Davis and steals her savings for seven minutes on screen. after a night together. Classic Pitt. This performance in the short program cemented Pitt's status as a Hollywood sex symbol and helped them land much more significant and more serious roles. Many mistakenly believe that Interview with the Vampire and Where the River Runs launched a rocket called Brad Pitt, but make no mistake, Thelma and Louise was Baikonur.

 

The big short, 2015

Pitt plays Ben Rickert, a former Wall Street trader who predicts the 2008 financial crisis. As director Adam McKay described his character, Pitt appears 10kg heavier, with a "Ken Burns haircut" and even a tie tag to make it look like he was just bought at the airport. The film received an Oscar for the best-adapted screenplay; Pitt acted not only as an actor but also as a producer.

 

Snatch, 2000

This was the era when Brad took off his shirt - and either kicked someone's ass or got his ass kicked. A turning point came somewhere between the "Big Jackpot" and "Fight Club" for Pitt. And it is "Snatch" that remains for many of the most beloved roles of Pitt, a boxer, always ready to start a fight or fight back, in Guy Ritchie's stylish and crazy film. If you watch it in the original dub, turn on the subtitles. Otherwise, you will not understand what he is saying. Either he has the best or worst accent in the movie. Either way, it's unforgettable.

 

Interview with the Vampire, 1994

Interview with the Vampire is far from Brad Pitt's best film: his recently bitten vampire, Louis de Pointe du Lac, is either embarrassed or constipated in every scene. He deserved a place on the list for one reason only, but it is the size of a Gothic castle: somehow, Pitt managed to keep a good face, having Tom Cruise as his partner. I'm sure the one who thought he was a rabid vampire Lestat de Lioncourt. During the filming, he fed exclusively on the blood of marsh creatures and rushed around Spanish Louisiana like a super-fast raccoon. I mean, how did Pitt manage to keep his cool when Tom, damn it, Cruz was squeezing rat intestines into a wine bowl with both hands?

 

Killing them softly 2012

Another fascinating story of American criminal enterprise. Few actors have landed a role as stylish as hitman Jackie Coogan. While this character, performed by Pitt, is going to the city, where a new order is waiting for him, Johnny Cash's The Man Comes Around is playing. And although Coogan may not decide, by the text of the composition, who to release and who to blame, he nonetheless appears as a specific biblical force tasked with equalizing the stakes of the underworld. He removes two stupid and low-grade thugs, thereby changing the balance of power in the mafia. With slicked-back hair and a neatly trimmed goatee, Pitt's character is breathtakingly reserved, and only subtle gestures and fleeting facial expressions betray the burden of regret that weighs on his shoulders like mileage weighs on his car's speedometer.

 

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, 2008

Few sex symbols will agree to become great-grandfathers on the screen, albeit aged with the help of special effects. But Brad Pitt is no ordinary sex symbol. The plot of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is taken from a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald and is extremely simple: Benjamin Button ages in reverse, which means he was born old and died young. It's a slow, thoughtful film, a profoundly human but not overly sentimental tale of the torturous relationship between love and time. Pitt, as an actor, is not lost either in special effects or in make-up - he is soft and serious, optimistic and romantic; he literally takes out this picture on his hunched shoulders. He knows it, and he never stumbles.

 

The tree of life, 2010

"The Tree of Life" by Terrence Malick is one of the most controversial, but also one of my favorite films. The complex theme the director addresses is time in its cosmic sense, shown through a microcosm of a suburban Texas family in the circa 1950s. Pitt plays Mr. O'Brien, a strict disciplinarian with infinitely high expectations who teaches his three sons to identify love with fear. The crew cut, pin-tucked trousers, and measured austerity sum up to illustrate the collective image of not only paternal but also mid-century American masculinity. The Tree of Life is a sensual masterpiece with an ambitious vision, at the core of which is Pitt's electrified hero embodies the sublime, tormenting, demanding love that will define both the traumas and victories of his three sons for decades to come.

 

Ocean's Eleven, 2001

Ocean's Eleven has been one of the biggest box office hits since 2001, and it's easy to see why: it stars four of the era's iconic movie stars, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, and Brad Pitt. With Clooney as a slick, seasoned swindler and Damon as a rookie with his first significant commission, Pitt's notoriously minor character, Rusty Ryan, had much more acting freedom. Pitt endows Rusty with the "beguiling but dangerous menace" traits he'll unleash in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Like in some other films, Pitt quite rightly relies on his ability to be charming and handsome, but hey, even if everyone could do it, he would still be that guy from the Pringles commercial.

 

 The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 2007

Perhaps no film more beautiful than this has ever been made in the 21st century (thanks to the incomparable cinematographer Roger Deakins). Maybe none of Pitt's roles is more fascinating than this one. Ford Casey Affleck is obsessed with Pitt's character James; Ford idealizes him, bringing the image to the point of absurdity, a ghost that materializes and disappears without warning. James robs trains and casts plaintive glances across the vast plains; in both cases, he is a mythical celebrity of the American West. Pitt embodies this complex image, balancing on the verge between a hero whose fate could well become a children's fairy tale and an ordinary person who tends to fluctuate between boundless happiness and uncontrollable ruthlessness. On the one hand, Jesse James is the prism through which the film examines all the legendary criminals and, given the media fascination with James, our complex relationship with the "stars" of different spheres. On the other hand, Pitt - equally dreamy and frightening - convincingly tells us the far less glamorous and much more easily categorized truth behind this bedtime story.

 

Moneyball, 2011

A movie about a bunch of old white guys sitting around their pants in conference rooms discussing baseball statistics doesn't sound like a good movie choice for the evening. Moreover, this does not pull on a role of the caliber of an award or even just a nomination for an Oscar. However, thanks to a screenplay from Aaron Sorkin and a genuinely emotional performance by Brad Pitt, The Man Who Changed Everything became a phenomenon much more than the usual “movie about sports”. It retells the true story of Billy Bean, the general manager of the Oakland As baseball team, who used sabermetrics in the 2002 season to build an unbeatable team. This brought Pitt another Oscar nomination. And if you reconsider the final heartbreaking scene in which Billy listens to his daughter's song in tears, it becomes unclear why he lost to Jean Dujardin in that very nomination (the film "The Artist"). In the case of actor Brad Pitt, it often feels like he's playing the part of Brad Pitt, but in this film, he melts into the role of a father trying to deal with all his inner shit. Having listed all his iconic parts - crazy, sexy, funny, active, it's nice to leave the central role of a dad who is trying to save his relationship with his daughter.

20-movie-stars-you-cant-recognize-under-their-makeup-mask-photo-and-video

Applying makeup during filming is not a quick process. Mainly when not only the image of the character depends on it but also on the film's overall success. The Deadpool actors must endure many hours of sitting in the make-up chair and all their manipulations, sometimes reminiscent of “torture.”

 

Changed beyond recognition! What makeup can do to actors

 

Bemorepanda found examples of what actors go through to make their on-screen characters stand out and memorable. For example, make-up for 8-9 hours. And this, it turns out, is not the most challenging thing that they sometimes have to face.

 

1. 8-9 hours, Rebecca Romijn as Mystique in X-Men

 

“It was a nine-hour make-up process. Throughout three films, we managed to cut it down to seven hours, but it was still... a lot. And I realized pretty quickly that this was my job, which was to apply all this makeup! — Rebecca Romijn, Looper

 

2. 8-9 hours, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique in X-Men: First Class

 

In First Class, the filmmakers stayed accurate to Rebecca Romijn's original costume. But for Jennifer Lawrence, the body paint caused such severe skin irritation that she had to call a doctor. For the next film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, they switched to bodysuits. It also helped save all that time on set.

 

“I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a tight suit. It will be from the neck down so that it will cut time and blisters." - Jennifer Lawrence.

 

3. 8.5 hours, Jim Carrey as the Grinch in The Grinch Stole Christmas

 

The process of putting on makeup and costume took so long that the film producer brought in a CIA officer whose job was to help people endure torture.

 

4. 8 hours, Halle Berry as Jocasta Ayres (and five other characters) in Cloud Atlas

 

In addition to her role as Jocasta Ayres, Berry is also known as:

 

- Louise Ray

 

- Ovid

 

- Meronym

 

- Native woman

 

- Indian party guest

 

5. 8 hours, Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in "Power."

 

“In the old days, when we were sculpting foam fixtures, we would reshape the jaw and chin area a bit because it would compress a bit. But now, in silicone, we must accentuate the cheekbones and jawlines because his weight pulls him down. So it isn't easy. It would help if you had to know what you're doing." — Makeup artist Greg Cannom, Vox.

 

6. 7-8 hours, John Hurt as John Merrick in The Elephant Man

 

The make-up for John Hurt, resembling the real-life John Merrick, was created using the casts of Merrick's body in the Royal London Hospital.

 

7. 7 hours, Jamie Campbell Bower as Vecna ​​in Stranger Things 4

 

Take a behind-the-scenes look below for a closer look at the process.

 


 

 

8. 7 hours, Michael Dorn as Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation

 

According to Michael Dorn, over time, the makeup process has become easier:

 

“Now it's not that weird because it used to be quite difficult because they used a lot of glue and makeup. It was just a natural process."

 

9. 7 hours, Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson in Deadpool

 

Seven hours is a very long time, and the makeup artists were uneasy when Ryan Reynolds once pranked them by ripping it all off after they were done.

 

Here's how it was:

 


 

 

10. 6 hours, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze in "Batman and Robin."

 

For some close-up shots, Arnold had to put an LED in his mouth, and at some point, it became quite dangerous:

 

“When you put it in Arnold's mouth, Arnold's saliva seeps into the seams of this thing and attacks the batteries. Batteries begin to disintegrate, and battery acid may begin to enter Arnold's mouth." — Makeup artist Jeff Dawn, THR.

 

11. 6 hours, Gary Oldman as Mason Verger in Hannibal

 

Greg Cannom, who worked with Christian Bale on The Authority, was Hannibal's makeup artist:

 

“I knew we could get away with [Oldman] more than any other actor. He first said, "Can we open my eye?" It's disgusting. I showed people pictures of [Oldman as Verger], and they all just said, “Oh my God!” and left, which made me very happy.” — Cannom, The Guardian.

 

12. 5-6 hours, Doug Bradley as Hellraiser in Hellraiser

 

“The process started with Clive sketching out his ideas that we had to work through together, and then we came up with other ideas based on those sketches. Initially, Pinhead was not at all what he is now. He was much more like Nightbreed's Shunu Sassi character, with only needles sticking out of the top of his head. I looked at it and thought, "Clive [Barker, director], we can't do it with that budget." I knew this makeup would last six days, and we couldn't do it on such a tight budget. He said, "Okay, let's think about it." That's when we came up with this grid pattern on a lifecast to determine where we were going to insert what were originally supposed to be six-inch nails. Clive looked at the mesh and decided he liked its symmetry, so we left it in place." — Makeup artist Bob Keane, DailyDead.

 

13. 5 hours, Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

 

Greg Cannom ("Power," "Hannibal") is back in business:

 

“I had time to get it right, which I don’t usually do in a film. We did intensive tests for two weeks before filming started at every age and did make-up after make-up. The make-up had to work. Otherwise, the film wouldn't have worked." — Kann, Variety.

 

14. 5 hours, John Matuszak as Sloth in The Goonies

 

Back in 2019, 34 years after the release of The Goonies, test shots of the Sloth makeup were finally found.

 

15. 5 hours Dave Bautista as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy 

 

“Drax started with a five-hour make-up, and gradually the time began to decrease, as expected. Such extensive makeup is a real challenge for the team because it is so complex.

 

“Every day, a plastic mold was offered that was the exact shape of David's body, with perforated holes indicating where the prosthesis begins and ends. Through it, a drawing showing a map was applied to rice paper.

 

“All teams had different tasks in this sequence. Some begin the application of paint, while others complete the shading of the dentures. We added subtle layers of browns, reds, and greens to the base gray to break up the tone and spice it up before the final color unwrapping.

 

"The whole body is then sealed with a retainer so that it can withstand daytime shooting." — Makeup artist David White, Business Insider.

 

16. 5 hours, Zoe Saldana as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy 

 

“This time, I was picked up at three in the morning - my dog ​​was not even happy about it. I had to sit for five hours for five months. It was crazy, but it paid off. The film is fantastic." — Zoe Saldana, US Weekly.

 

17. 5 hours, Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle in The Fly

 

“Yes, Chris Wallace got an Oscar for it. And Stéphane Dupuis put me in the dentist's chair for five hours and used this thing. And then another hour after we finished… well, you know, labor, labor, labor… took it off. This suit is a little tight... the rubber suit... so I look so... ugly. And then prosthetics. — Jeff Goldblum, Yahoo.

 

18. 6 hours, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Terminator in Terminator 2: Judgment Day

 

“Maria walked onto the set in the midst of filming Terminator 2. And then she saw me - when half of the face disappeared, and the eye lit up. All this weird makeup... So she started screaming and crying on set because she didn't understand why dad looked like that." - Arnold Schwarzenegger.

 

19. 5 hours, Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose

 

Marion Cotillard didn't mind the five-hour make-up because she's a big fan of Edith Piaf and wanted to give her credit:

 

“It was very stressful, but she was a powerful person. I love tragedy. Not in my life. But I love to play a tragedy. It allows me to express so many things. At the same time, I feel empty and full of emotions; I feel alive." — Marion Cotillard, Under the Radar.

 

20. 5 hours, Tim Curry as Lord of Darkness in "Legend."

 

“We had terrible negotiations about what parts of me would be visible. I fought and begged to have my own eyes… My eyes were solid contact lenses, like wolf or cat eyes, which were very painful to install because they took a cast of your eye and inserted it into your eye. If it hurt, they scratched him a little until he stopped hurting.” — Tim Curry, Legend commentary.

inconspicuous-details-that-the-filmmakers-have-skillfully-hidden-in-the-movies

Almost every film has curious details that are difficult to notice when you first watch it. Sometimes it can be unexpected characters, unobtrusively left by the director. Or inconspicuous moments that reveal the plot of the picture and add a special peppercorn to it.

 

At Bemorepanda, we found 13 hidden movie parts that even seasoned moviegoers might overlook. At the end of the article, you will find an unexpected fact about the cult melodrama, which many watched before the holes in the sunset of the 1990s.

 

1. "Matrix" - the symbol of yin and yang

When Neo and Morpheus attack each other in The Matrix, their clothing and body position form a symbol of the union of yin and yang. In Chinese philosophy, it means the interaction of opposites: light and darkness, day and night, positive and negative.

 

2. "Pirates of the Caribbean" - compass

In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, when Commander James Norrington holds up the compass, he points to Jack, not Elizabeth. This compass does not point north or south, but in the direction of what the person holding it desires most. So the filmmakers wanted to show that the commander values ​​his duty above his feelings: it is more important for him to catch a pirate than to be with his beloved.

 

3. "Casino Royale" "- actress

In the 2006 film Casino Royale, actress Tsai Chin plays one of the poker players. She also appeared in the role of a minor Bond girl in the 1967 film "Live Only Twice".

 

4. "Cabin in the woods" - pupils

In the thriller "Cabin in the Woods" after a van crash and a collision with a zombie, you can see that Dana's pupils have become of different sizes. This is a common symptom of a concussion.

 

5. "The Truman Show" - cameras

In The Truman Show, the cameras appear in very obvious places, but the main character (Jim Carrey) stubbornly does not notice them. Even when a neighbor brings a trash can to Truman's car, he still does not see anything unusual in what is happening, since he has always lived in the conditions of a TV show.

 

6. "Shape of water" - shoes

The Oscar-winning film The Shape of Water features a scene in which Eliza admires a pair of red shoes. Later, when the heroine begins a relationship with Amphibian Man, you can see how she confidently walks through the laboratory in those very shoes. Perhaps this is how the filmmakers wanted to show that Eliza gained confidence and expanded the boundaries of her capabilities.

top-20-scariest-movies-of-all-times

The heyday of horror movies came in the 70s and 80s when censorship was finally abolished, and special effects became more and more realistic. At that time, many horror films appeared on the screens, which later became classics. At the same time, slashers were born, aimed at a younger audience.

 

What are some of the best horror movies?

 

Unfortunately, by the 90s, horror films almost died out, giving way to thrillers. The popularity of The Silence of the Lambs played a significant role. Horror returned to the screens only after the beginning of the 21st century, slightly changing the plots to more social ones.

 

20. The Shining

USA, UK, 1980.

Horror, thriller, drama.

Duration: 144 minutes.

 

Writer Jack Torrance is in a creative crisis. To earn extra money and at the same time to be distracted, he gets a job as a caretaker at the Overlook Hotel, which is closed for the winter and moves there with his family. Jack plans to spend this time writing a new novel. But soon, terrible things begin to happen in the hotel.

 

The author of the original book Stephen King was dissatisfied with the adaptation by Stanley Kubrick. But still, the director managed to perfectly convey the mystical and frightening atmosphere of the hotel, inhabited by ghosts. Well, the fantastic performance of Jack Nicholson makes the picture a must-see.

With the cult film by Ridley Scott, a whole multi-year franchise about xenomorphs began, on which various directors worked. But still, the sequels are more like gloomy action movies. And the first film is a fantastic horror, where a monster hunts for heroes in a confined space.

18. The Thing

USA, 1982.

Horror, fantasy.

Duration: 109 minutes.

 

In the ice of Antarctica, polar explorers find an alien organism. It soon turns out that he attacks people and can take the form and even copy the behavior of any living creature. Now all the station inhabitants suspect each other, trying to figure out the monster.

Duration: 137 minutes.

Director Roman Polanski approached the staging of his debut film in Hollywood very carefully, paying attention to the minor details in the plot. The author wanted no one to doubt the realism of what was happening. As a result, the picture perfectly combines the story of a classic horror film about a satanic cult and a reflection of the natural fear of motherhood.

 

16. The Exorcist

William Friedkin's film is widely regarded as a horror classic. The director set it as his task to scare the viewer in every way, for which shaking scenery, terrible makeup, and many special effects were used. And many considered the scene of the exorcism of the devil even too realistic, although the performer of the role of Merrin's father, Max von Sydow, said that he did not believe in evil spirits.

 

Well, the moment where the girl's arms and legs bend has firmly gone down in history: it was copied in dozens of horror films and then parodied in many comedies.

The film by aspiring director George Romero was the first story in which zombies were shown in their usual form today - before this term was referred only to as voodoo magic. Interestingly, Romero himself did not use it.

 

The film has many sequels and remakes, and the idea of ​​the mindless walking dead, who are primarily dangerous because of their numbers, has gone into popular culture.

 

13. Halloween

Since childhood, Michael Myers has been in a hospital because he killed his sister. But one day, an adult criminal escapes, puts on a white mask, and begins to terrorize a group of teenagers.

 

The author work of John Carpenter launched a whole wave of slasher films - horror films where a maniac in a mask hunts teenagers. Such paintings even became a symbol of the eighties. And Halloween itself has evolved into one of the longest-running horror franchises in history. In 2018, another part was released, which continued the events of the very first film, ignoring the sequels.

 

12. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" became the primary prototype of all slashers, anticipating both "Halloween" and other prominent representatives of the genre. The first part may seem rustic to date, although it has enough dark scenes.

 

But the picture also has many sequels, and in 2017 a prequel about the origin of the main villain, nicknamed Leatherface, was released. By the way, this character has an actual prototype - the maniac Ed Gein.

The child, named Damien, grows up in the family as his own. But in fact, his soul is cursed from birth. After all, Damien is the Antichrist.

 

And another classic horror movie that embodies the idea of ​​fear of children. The contrast between the angelic face of the young actor and his sinister actions hooked the viewer. The picture came out with two more successful sequels, where they talked about Damien's adolescence and his mature years.

 

But the restart of the story of the same name failed, although the film's advertising campaign was built very ingeniously, releasing the picture on 06/06/2006.

And the worst thing is that those he killed in a dream die in reality. The heroes are trying to figure out where this ghost came from. But for this, they need not sleep.

 

One of the most recognizable on-screen maniacs came up with director Wes Craven, and over the years, the image of Freddy Krueger has become firmly established in pop culture. Everyone knows his invariable attributes: a red-green sweater, a hat, a burnt face, and a glove with claws.

 

It is ironic that in the late nineties, when the horror genre was in severe decline, the same Craven made the film Scream, in which he deconstructed the slasher genre and showed all the stereotypes of such movies.

Horror, fantasy, drama.

Duration: 96 minutes.

 

Scientist Seth Brundle creates a teleportation device. After several successful experiments with objects and animals, he decides to try the invention on himself. But at the moment of teleportation, a fly flies into the device. Because of this accident, Set gradually turns into a giant insect.

 

And again, a remake that surpassed the original in quality and popularity. The fact is that the master of the body horror genre David Cronenberg undertook to shoot it.

Duration: 113 minutes.

 

Spouses Ed and Lorraine Warren are experienced exorcists. They exorcise ghosts from houses and also give lectures about otherworldly forces. But one day, they have to face such a potent evil that not only the inhabitants of the damned home are in danger, but also the spouses themselves.

 

This film was directed by James Wan - the creator of another famous horror franchise, "Astral."

Duration: 98 minutes.

 

Quiet and timid schoolgirl Carrie is constantly intimidated by her fanatically religious mother and offended by her peers. Aggression accumulates inside her, which suddenly manifests itself in supernatural abilities. And at this time, classmates want to play it again right at the prom.

 

The film adaptation of Stephen King's debut novel by the famous Brian De Palma cemented the book's popularity and stimulated many other directors to pay attention to the writer's work. The secret to the story's success is simple: King took a familiar story about bullying at school and turned it into supernatural horror. Well, Palma only managed to adapt all this perfectly.

 

The movie's tagline is "If The Exorcist made you flinch, Carrie would make you scream." And this is not an exaggeration: at first, many viewers were seriously frightened by the terrible bloody scene at the school.

 

6. Suspiria

Italy, 1977

Horror, drama.

Duration: 98 minutes.

Dario Argento is a recognized master of the Giallo genre, which combines a crime thriller, explicit scenes, and cruelty. But in Suspiria, he went further, combining dark mysticism with a beautiful musical film.

Duration: 115 minutes.

 

Alien plants appear in an American town. Gradually, they turn into absolutely exact copies of people and take the place of the originals. The only difference is that the aliens are entirely emotionless.

 

The classic film of the same name came out in 1955 when the US went through a hysteria about foreign spies. Then the film set the fashion for the story of the alien invasion.

 

The 1978 remake was even more interesting than the original. The atmosphere of horror and creepy scenes of the appearance of copies from cocoons were added to the unusual plot. And the gloomy ending of the picture went down in history as one of the most sinister scenes.

 

4. Poltergeist

Horror, thriller.

Duration: 114 minutes.

This film gave us a creepy girl with black hair crawling out of the TV. First, she turned into one of the most famous and frightening images and then into the object of many parodies.

 

The popularity of the original film was also noticed in Hollywood, and three years later, they released their version of the picture in the United States. Curiously, later the continuation of the American version was directed by the director of the Japanese original, Hideo Nakata.

Australian actress Jennifer Kent in her directorial debut, was able to talk about the deep feelings of a single mother. Therefore, if you oversee the film, you can see not only cool screamers but also the expression of a woman's grief over her dead husband.

The family blames the eldest daughter Thomasin for all the troubles, who did not keep track of her brother, and this becomes the beginning of even more significant problems.

 

Rookie director Robert Eggers tried to shoot the whole picture as naturalistically as possible: most of the shots here are shown in natural light in rather pale colors. And in fact, the meaning of the picture is not witchcraft. Much more frightening is that each hero hides something even from his loved ones.

And then it begins stupid deaths, absurd situations, go to the people "students have arrived and committed suicide in the fresh air."

23-facts-only-the-cast-and-crew-know-about-black-panther-wakanda-forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is an exciting new chapter in the Black Panther story and a beautiful tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. Indeed, the cast and crew came together to create something truly incredible, both on screen and behind the scenes.

 

Behind-The-Scenes Facts About 'Wakanda Forever' Movie Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman

 

Did they succeed?

 

Our selection of 23 interesting behind-the-scenes facts about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will answer this question.

 

Attention: spoilers!

 

1. The White Wakandans At King T'Challa's Funeral Are Based On Ghanaian Tradition

Costume designer Ruth E. Carter told Vanity Fair, "We spoke to a historian of African culture, especially West African culture, and he told us that Africans in Ghana usually wear white at funerals."

 

2. Designing hundreds of white funeral gowns, costume designer Ruth E. Carter drew inspiration from the various cultures of Africa to create a unique identity for each tribe in Wakanda.

She told InStyle, "The whole warehouse was full of white clothes and we needed to identify the tribes somehow. You see dancers who are more like Zulu - they have white fur and shells, white raffia skirts and white paint on their chests. We had West Africa, with Baaba Maal singing and the drum guy. Queen Ramonda wore her white isikolo representing South Africa and she had many Ndebele symbols (a people of the Nguni group living in South Africa) all over her dress... In fact, all the tribes could be identified, although they were all in white, but white united them in honor of the departure of T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman."

 

3. In versions of the script written before Chadwick Boseman's death in 2020, T'Challa lamented the time he lost between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

Director Ryan Coogler told Inverse, "The character had to mourn the loss of time, you know, coming back after a five-year absence, that's what the movie was about. He mourned the time he could not get back. Grief was a big part of that action."

 

4. There was "literally a list of hundreds" of potential titles before they settled on "Wakanda Forever" which "feels right because it's a story of triumph through adversity"

Producer Nate Moore told Collider: "It's a story about legacy, it's a story about perseverance, and Wakanda Forever tells all of that. It's a story about heritage, it's a story about perseverance." Choosing a title for a sequel is always a difficult task, especially for a film that has run into so many problems like Black Panther 2.

 

5. Toward the end of a long 10-month shoot that was plagued with several production delays, the actors had a witty joke.

The cast joked that "it's Ryan Coogler's (director's) fault because he called this movie 'Wakanda Forever', which means this movie won't just end." Lupita Nyong'o told the Hollywood Reporter, "This is forever and ever."

 

6. When Tenok Huerta first received an invitation to play Namor, he answered the question "Can you swim?" with the phrase "I've never drowned before" (he couldn't swim)

In the end, for the sake of the film, he had to learn how to swim. As he told Jimmy Kimmel, "I took lessons...with an inflatable vest."

 

7. After learning that most of the film would take place underwater, Lupita Nyong'o made it her mission to train by "holding her breath and carrying gigantic weights through the water."

She sent Coogler and Moore videos of her workouts.

 

Moore told The Hollywood Reporter, "By the way, we didn't ask her to do anything. We thought, “What is this lady doing? She was so eager to feel plausibly comfortable in the water. She wanted to be as much of an expert as possible. And it is visible. She was able to do things that other actors couldn't because she was so determined to go further to make sure this character felt real."

 

8. Director Ryan Coogler also learned how to swim for the film.

He told Variety, "Many of us have been raised to be afraid of the water. I needed to figure out how to swim so I could make this film."

 

9. Among the actors, Mabel Cadena (who plays Namora) can hold her breath underwater the longest - six and a half minutes!

 

10. For the underwater city of Talokan, costume designer Ruth E. Carter tested the actors' costumes in a 6-meter tank. She ended up having to weight the costumes to make them look normal while filming.

 

11. Carter also had to completely rethink the types of materials she could use for the characters' costumes to make them waterproof. She ended up replacing a number of materials with silicone.

 

She told Vanity Fair, "What we built in the first movie was no longer available to us because it was made from leather and raffia and other things that break down in water. So we had to start over and… sculpt and recreate things out of silicone.”

 

12. The white Adidas Shuri sneakers were hollow and made with a new 4D technology that the company will be launching soon.

 

At first, they only sent Carter one pair of shoes, but she asked Adidas to make enough shoes for all the tricks.

 

“When you go outside of our industry, they say, 'What do you mean you need two?' Two! We need two. We need ten! Because, you know, you can lose some, some will break. You never know what's going to happen," she told InStyle.

 

13 Makeup Supervisor Joel Harlow came up with the idea to use paint rollers to make it easier to paint the actors playing the Talokans blue.

 

14. There were several versions of Namor's headdress with feathers - one for terrestrial scenes, and others, waterproof, for underwater scenes.

 

15. Tenoch Huerta called his Namor costume "shame shorts" because of how small they are.

 

16. In the post, Namor shares a lot of similarities with DC hero Aquaman, so Coogler focused on building on their differences.

He told Uproxx: “When Aquaman came out and was a success in the marketplace, it was a great guide for us and helped us understand how Namor is different from Aquaman. Just out of respect for the audience, because a lot of people have watched this movie. Many people love this movie. I think if you can give people something different and good, but also unique, that's always great. We wanted to focus on what makes these two characters different because it's obvious that they have a lot in common."

 

17. In the comics, Namor is the ruler of Atlantis, but director Ryan Coogler decided to change him to Talokan "out of respect for the audience, not wanting to give them something like other things that came before."

He told Inverse, "There have been many representations and creative depictions of Atlantis based on Plato's Atlantis, the Greco-Roman concept of a city submerged in the sea. This idea exists in many different forms. We wanted our film to exist alongside these films and be different."

 

18. Casting Rihanna on the soundtrack was originally a "fantastic idea," but composer Ludwig Göransson's previous friendship with the singer - along with an appeal to Jay-Z and Roc Nation's Jay Brown - helped Coogler realize the dream.

 

19. Daniel Kaluuya had to keep his W'Kabi character's absence from the film a secret and protect fans from spoilers because he didn't want to disappoint people.

He told CinemaBlend, "If I said something, people would be very disappointed. That's how I feel about it."

 

20. For Lupita Nyong'o, being able to speak Spanish in the film was "just a gift." She also felt that the film "represents different sides of [her] heritage" because she was born in Mexico to Kenyan parents.

She stated: “I have always wanted to work in Spanish, and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that such an opportunity would appear in Black Panther.

 

21. Before Chadwick Boseman died, he was “inspired by the potential of Native American representation and what it could mean.”

Coogler told Uproxx: "He always had an incredible understanding of how an audience would react to things. I was happy to start working with him."

 

22. Coogler decided to make Shuri the main character because T'Challa's death would affect her the most.

“In character storytelling, she was the only main character who never moved away from T’Challa… Every day in her life, T’Challa was there. He was a constant for her, so it was clear to us that she would probably be the most saddened by his departure, and that would probably be where the narrative should be centered."

 

23. And finally, on set, Letitia Wright dedicated every scene to her late co-star Chadwick Boseman.

She said on The Tonight Show, "I wanted to dedicate this movie to perfection so it can be proud."
