Movies are magic, whether you look at them on or off-screen. Sometimes even looking at the process of making your favorite scenes in films is magical. Without further ado, here’s a look behind the scenes at some of the moments behind some of your favorite franchises of all time.
The Boy Who Lived. The Chosen One. The vanquisher of the Dark Lord Voldemort. This is what kids in the 1990s grew up with. JK Rowling’s books were a major box office draw as 12 movies based on her properties have grossed over USD 9 billion today. Audiences and children grew up on the screen with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint and one of the greatest ensemble casts in history.

Back to The Future
Directed by Robert Zemeckis, this 80s staple has become one of the most beloved trilogies of all time.

This role became Michael J Fox’s most iconic role to date. Here are some behind the scenes moments on the sets of Back to the Future.
Lord of The Rings
The greatest epic high fantasy franchise of all time. There is no comparison. When J.R.R. Tolkien’s vision of Middle Earth was Realized by Peter Jackson, magic happened on screen. We watched Hobbits, Wizards, Humans, Dwarves, and Trolls fight over a piece of jewelry that could control an entire kingdom. The entire franchise including the Hobbit trilogy is worth over USD 5 billion today. Here are some photos that captured a fraction of the magic of middle earth.

Men in Black
When Men in Black released in 1997, it was a surprise hit. Audiences were taken aback by the smart storytelling and cool gadgets and aliens.

“In space, no one can hear you scream”. This was the tagline of the 1979 space-monster-horror movie, Alien. With a concept by H.R. Giger and directed by Ridley Scott, this movie, to this day remains a beloved cult classic. It also made a star out of Sigourney Weaver.

When Tim Burton signed on to direct Batman and was asked to work with Michael Keaton, audiences were very vocal about their displeasure of a short, skinny Batman. Jack Nicholson was cast as the Dark Knight’s greatest foe- the joker. The movie, however, left audiences stunned. It brought in USD 411 Billion, globally in 1989. The movie faced rejections from several studios, alternate castings, fan disapproval, and so on but it managed to exceed everyone’s expectations stunningly. Burton was even called in to direct the sequel, Batman Returns. He was ultimately replaced by Joel Schumacher who passed away recently. For now, here’s a look at the making of Batman.
