Even killers need to grab a bite to eat or have something to drink, and when the cameras aren’t rolling the mask has to come off so the actor – Nick Castle, for most of the films – could get something inside his stomach.
While seeing Myers enjoying a Dr. Pepper does kind of kill the mood, he still made for a killer villain in all of the movies he appeared in, no matter what he enjoys snacking on. We all know that film characters are actors, but horror movies rely on a certain feeling, and that feeling can be broken by just one image.
If you're a "Lord of the Rings" fan then you'll certainly recognize where this behind the scene picture is from...Arwen and Frodo's infamous horse chase of course!
To try to keep live horses out of harm's way, director Peter Jackson opted to use a horse replica when possible.
Another Horror Icon Unmasked
Alongside Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers is one of the enduring horror icons from the eighties, and he's even the main face of the 'Halloween' franchise, the perfect films to watch if you want some scares in October. This character stalked babysitters, leaving everyone in the movie theater looking over their shoulder.
You probably know that the famous mask Myers wears is a Captain Kirk mask that has been mangled and bleached, but have you ever looked behind the mask to see what Myers really looks like? Get ready to have some movie magic disappear.
They Can't Always be Guarding the Galaxy
'Guardians of the Galaxy' is one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that really grabbed people's attention, and some think the sequel is even better. The movies have clever dialogue, a great soundtrack straight from the eighties, and an amazing cast of characters that continues to grow.
Of course, the actors have to sometimes take a break – acting can be hard – which gives us plenty of behind the scenes images to peruse. This famous movie series had plenty of press buzzing around it while filming, so we're sure to see something interesting.
Naps and Smartphones
While Kurt Russel, who played Star-Lord's father Ego, is in need of a good nap. Gamora and Star-Lord himself have taken out their phones to check their space Instagram accounts or check their messages. Or play solitaire, who knows. The huge blue screen behind them helped the filmmakers create the amazing starscapes we see throughout the movies, and there are plenty of crew members working hard setting up the next shot.
We see a strange generational divide here, as Kurt Russel shuts his eyes to keep his strength, while Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana take to the internet and a little bit of eye strain.
