Weird Movie Facts

Unusual events seem commonplace when movie magic is involved…


Anyone who is an avid Star Wars fan knows R2-D2 quite well, who is Luke Skywalker’s animated and quirky robot sidekick. Even though R2-D2 communicates by using computerized bleeding sounds, did you know that originally he was supposed to speak English?!

I don’t know about you, but that would have completely changed the film. It’s fun trying to decipher this robot’s meaning behind all of his communicative bleeping and many times we can understand exactly what he’s saying in the films just by the sound pitches. He also tends to move his machine around quite a bit, because he’s quite animated that way! Star Wars just wouldn’t have been the same if R2-D2 spoke in English.

That’s why you’ll be shocked to find out that the creepy white mask that the villiam Michael Myers wore in the Halloween movies was used before.

That’s right, it’s exactly the same mask that Captain Kirk wore in the popular Star Trek films. There’s one minor detail, however. The mask may be the same in the horror films, except the black mask was simply painted white! Even though that may have worked we have to wonder why a new mask just wasn’t made. It probably took just as much time painting that black mask white!
