This past year has been a wild ride of both entertainingly excellent box-office hits, along with some not-so great, mindless movie duds. Despite the misses, there’s no denying that 2017 has given us quite the number of memorable releases – ranging from ’90s revivals to the latest superhero adaptations.
While we’ve all enjoyed the action on the big screen, one wonders what sorts of shenanigans go on behind the scenes – when the actors aren’t pummeling down New York’s criminals or terrorizing young children in a creepy, ’50s clown get-up.
Thankfully, in this day and age of social media, even the on-screen talents themselves can frequently update fans on exclusive backstage happenings, whether it’s a selfie with the film crew or a sneaky on-set photo – posted on Instagram for their devoted followers to keep tabs on.
Because who doesn’t want to see the gorgeous, Vietnam sunsets of Kong: Skull Island? Or perhaps how the Power Rangers performed their stomach-dropping stunts? Thanks to these photos, we’ve gotten a generous sneak peek at some of the most interesting – or just simply amusing – cast and crew incidents behind the curtain.
Without further ado, here are the 15 Behind-The-Scenes Movie Photos of 2017 That We Can’t Unsee.
15. Pennywise Taking A Selfie
Andres Muschietti’s 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s It was undeniably one of the best films of the year (and one of the best horror films in recent years), wherein adult audiences were able to relive their childhood nightmares of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
Performed spectacularly by Swedish actor, Bill Skarsgard, 2017’s Pennywise continuously ignited screams of terror throughout the film’s 2-hour runtime, both among viewers and the movie’s protagonists, themselves.
This is probably why it’s a rather goofy sight to see the ever-frightening Pennywise pose for a cheerful selfie – and being the one taking it, at that.
Despite being all smiles for the camera, we still can’t help but feel those creeping chills as Skarsgard sports a complete, full-face of movie make-up and smears of “blood” all over his ruffled collar.
14. Wonder Woman Boot-Making
The DC Cinematic Universe has finally blessed fans with what was probably its only critically acclaimed movie yet – Patty Jenkins’ magnificent take on the Amazonian demi-goddess, Wonder Woman.
The movie was filled to the brim with non-stop battle sequences, with Diana Prince plowing through walls and completely demolishing her opponents out of existence. (Rest in peace, that tank sniper.)
Of course, her outfit wouldn’t be complete without Wonder Woman’s signature armoured boots. To go through the process of creating this part of her costume, Gal Gadot had her legs covered with white plaster to create an accurate mold of them, as seen in this interesting “work-in-progress” shot posted on her Instagram. Cosplayers, take notes.
