this list we’re looking at weird or
whacky movie related occurrences that
are almost impossibly coincidental but
as far as we know are true or at least
number 10 a sign from God The Passion of
the Christ The Passion of the Christ was
a daring film that challenged many an
audience member
throughout almost the entire film after
Jim Caviezel brings to life the torture
that Jesus of Nazareth suffered before
being crucified it’s tough to watch
but during shooting the Sermon on the
Mount Caviezel was struck by lightning
on any other film this would have been
reported as an unfortunate accident but
considering the subjects relation to God
it’s difficult not to wonder if director
Mel Gibson was getting a message from
the big guy upstairs
hey hey wound area coma it’s a long mara
davi a cool number 9 magical coat The
Wizard of Oz you’re travelling in the
sky given how iconic the movie is in its
own right it may surprise some to know
that The Wizard of Oz was originally a
book written by L frank Baum who
unfortunately died long before the film
ever went into production when working
on the illustrious production design the
costume department went to second-hand
stores for professor Marvel in order to
achieve a dignified yet worn out look
according to journalist Al Jean Hermits
they managed to snag a coat that would
work but hearts stopped when they
checked the label indicating the jackets
former owner l frank Baum the original
books author this insane coincidence is
almost enough to make you believe in
magic number eight Quicksilver meet
Quicksilver x-men Days of Future past
Avengers age of Ultron and kick-ass how
come nobody’s ever tried to be a
superhero Wow in dire financial straits
during the 90s Marvel sold the film
rights of the x-men franchise to 20th
Century Fox while holding on to the
rights of the Avengers since the
character Quicksilver is both an x-men
and an Avenger both companies
simultaneously owned the film rights to
him fast forward in nearly 20 years and
the Marvel Cinematic Universe and x-men
film franchises are killing it and both
produce movies featuring Quicksilver
played by Aaron taylor-johnson in
Avengers age of Ultron and Evan Peters
in x-men Days of Future past
weirdly these two characters had worked
together in another comic book movie
called kick-ass in which they are close
friends with aspirations of being
superheroes putting on a mask and
helping people how’s that impossible
well that’s not superhero though I
wasn’t super super is like being
stronger than everybody and flying and
shit that’s just hero number 7 fall of
the tale of Achilles and the siege of
Troy are legendary literally there’s a
legend about it and in said legend
Achilles was the son of a goddess who
dipped him in waters that would make him
invincible with his only vulnerable
point being where his mother held him
his ankle while the 2004 film Troy
attempted to bring a more grounded
approach to the Warriors story after
Brad Pitt tore his you guessed it
Achilles tendon while on set because it
was an extremely painful injury
protection of the epic had to shut down
for 10 weeks while Brad Pitt recovered
and yes because we’re mortal number 6 a
bad omen the omen mr. Tollman the son of
the devil
okay it’s fun to joke around but this is
seriously freaking creepy the omen is
the story of a family who find
themselves raising the Antichrist bummer
right but what happened when the cameras
weren’t rolling is even scarier lead
actor Gregory pecks son was found dead
two months before shooting began and he
narrowly missed being on a plane that
crashed and killed all its passengers
then two separate planes carrying two
crew members were struck by lightning
while animal trainers lost control of
some of the animals used in the movie
and the film’s director stayed in a
hotel bombed by the IRA before being hit
by a car more accidents befell the crew
and continued through the film sequels
while shooting the 2006 remake over
13,000 feet of film mysteriously went
missing which is an unheard-of amount
number five double Oscar prediction The
The Godfather Part 2 and Raging Bull
after getting passed up to place Sonny
Corleone in the original Godfather
Robert DeNiro was cast to play a young
Vito Corleone in The Godfather Part 2
for his work De Niro received an Oscar
for Best Supporting Actor Robert De Niro
would later go on to take home his
second Oscar this time for Best Actor in
a leading role for playing Jake LaMotta
in Raging Bull in the original film as
the older Don Vito Corleone buys oranges
a poster advertising a Jake LaMotta
fight can clearly be seen in the
background that means in one shot of the
Godfather both of De Niro’s
oscar-winning roles can be seen issue
number for 911 filming location
nosebleed come on me my rattle you many
have looked at old movies and pointed to
apparent predictions of the September
11th attacks notable examples include
the passport expiry date of neo from the
matrix being 9/11/2001 but this example
is by far the most shocking at the time
Jackie Chan was originally supposed to
start in an action comedy titled
nosebleed but he felt the script was
weak and needed work so they delayed
production thankfully so because the
shoot was supposed to take place in the
World Trade Center on 9/11 and by some
reports even featured a terrorist attack
in the wake of the attacks talks of
rewriting the project were tossed around
but it was eventually scrapped jobs done
and finally I got this script I said yes
for me challenge number three the line
of duty
code of The Secret Service that’s the
gambling joint on the other side of the
line that this mob uses as a front I had
a date to meet him on this side of the
International Bridge he showed up all
right before Ronald Reagan became the
Republican poster boy that he is today
he was an actor this is important
because he was tasked with playing in a
series of movies about the United States
Secret Service
apparently Reagan was not fond of these
movies so it’s ironic enough the years
later he would become president and be
protected by the Secret Service
but hold on this story gets better years
later as a gunman opened fire and
attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan
the man widely credited with saving his
life with Special Agent in Charge Jerry
Parr who stayed
he was inspired to join the Secret
Service after seeing the film Code of
the Secret Service starring you guessed
it Ronald Reagan well that takes care of
me but what about you number two
the book from London the girl from
Petrovka in the early 70s Anthony
Hopkins was cast to play a role in the
adaptation of the girl from Petrovka
like any good actor he decided to read
the source material to prepare for the
role problem is he had a hell of a time
finding a copy of the book just when he
was ready to give up his search though
he found a copy sitting on a park bench
a while later Hopkins met the author of
the book
George Pfeiffer who said that he himself
had lost his personal copy after he lent
it to a friend who had lost it somewhere
in London as it turns out Hopkins had
accidentally found the book of belonging
to the original author number one tragic
family Game of Death
so got in finally this is a story as
tragic as it is coincidental while
shooting the original Game of Death in
the early 70s Bruce Lee died during its
production to justify his character’s
sudden change in appearance as he was
replaced by a different actor the story
of the 1978 version was altered to have
Lee’s character gets shot while on a
movie set years later Bruce Lee’s son
Brandon Lee died on the set of the crow
after he was shot with an improperly
handled gun while this coincidence is as
devastating as it is unpredictable both
actors are remembered fondly for their
work in the industry and martial arts
he’s supposed to be
flounders sometimes do you agree with
