In the world of filmmaking, we often imagine everything as being perfectly planned, rehearsed, choreographed, and perfect. But as most of us should know, there is no such things as perfection. Filmmakers are well acquainted with Murphy’s Law, which basically states that what can go wrong will go wrong. But hey, that’s life. Things don’t always go as planned. Not even in the seemingly perfect world of movie magic. It doesn’t matter how much you rehearse something, things can always take a turn for the worst. And sometimes mistakes can turn out to be a good thing and make scenes in films a lot better. These mistakes, or enhancements, are sometimes left in the final cuts of the films. Such is the case for several movies that we will be discussing today.
In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord tries to hand over the orb that unbeknownst to him contains an Infinity Stone. But he ends up dropping it and without missing a beat grabs it and continues to hand it over to the Collector. This drop was a total mistake but it fits Star Lord’s dorky personality don’t you think?
Did you know that the scene where Aragorn kicks a helmet and drops down screaming in agony was a mistake? No it wasn’t just the anguish of thinking Merry and Pippin were dead, Viggo Mortensen actually broke his toes when he did that take.
