Breaking the 4th Wall in Movies Compilation

 

A compilation of scenes and moments from films that all “break the fourth wall” – that is, acknowledge (usually directly to the camera, and therefore the audience) that they’re part of a movie. The term comes from the imaginary “wall” at the front of the stage in a traditional three-walled box set in a proscenium theatre, through which the audience sees the action in the world of the play.

The montage includes 54 different films (some used more than once) from perhaps the very first example of breaking the fourth wall right up to today. Which 4th wall breakers would you include?

(PG-13)

The Mother of All Geeky Blankets

Geek Nerd Blanket SR Geek Picks: Breaking 4th Wall In Movies, Marvel Artwork & More

From Revelry.com user Leilaniac:

I created the square designs in Excel, using a variety of pictures, text art, etc., as sources.

The squares are 40×48 (plus 2 buffer rows/stitches on each side), in sock yarn, on size 3 needles. Most of the yarn is ShiBui sock, with an assist from Lorna’s Laces Zombie BBQ.

I didn’t post the binary name (center) square, on the theory that no one would be interested in knitting a square with my nephew’s name on it.

  1. What … no deadpool in the breaking the 4th wall video?

  2. I really enjoined the Breaking the 4th wall segment. But one thing was missing, the Muppets!! They were really good at that. Except for Muppets take Manhattan, that’s the only film they didn’t break it.

  3. Great video indeed, but where is the end of “Wanted”? It’s a perfect example of breaking the fourth wall.

  4. how is jasmine 15? and why is she a midget, I call bull.
