Gone are the days when all you needed to do to enjoy a movie was turn up at your local multiplex or sit down at your home and simply watch the film in question. Now, you have to press pause every five minutes to make sure that there isn’t a subtle reference to one of your favorite pictures hidden in the background somewhere. Here are five movie Easter eggs that you probably missed the first time around.
Bob Kane is the creator of the caped-crusader so it’s good to see Tim Burton pay the talented S.O.B his dues. When Alexander Know walks into his office at the beginning of the movie a crude sketch of the Batman is handed to him and the signature on the page reads Bob Kane.
"Monty Pyton’s Life Of Brian"
George Harrison basically funded Monty Python’s foray into cinema with the Handmade Films production company. Thank god he was such a huge fan of theirs otherwise it would have been really awkward. So the least he deserved was a cameo in the film as Brian is escorted through the market.
"Kill Bill: Vol. 1"
Parental guidance is needed for this Easter egg when The Bride walks through the Zen Garden, in Quentin Tarantino’s
"Tron" has always been regarded as the definitive video-game movie. So much so that on the Sark’s battlecruiser, whilst Flynn checks out a map of the area, a small Pac-man can be seen munching his way through the ship.
Tony Stark’s workbench looks like a normal everyday area to build and repair tools, such as his firearms, suit, and Captain America’s shield. Of course now that Joss Whedon’s "Avengers" film has been released the series is cross-referencing all over the place.
"Raiders of the Lost Ark"
It’s not like "Star Wars" needed any more promotion but for some reason George Lucas still thought it would be a good idea to hide R2-D2 and C-3PO in an ancient chamber that Dr. Jones has fallen into.
