When You Find Out James Bond Was In The Force Awakens

I love catching little easter eggs in popular movies. I love films which give you a ‘hang on…was that…?’ moment.

There are many films out there dropping hints and flashing one second cameos you may have missed. Often times it’s as fun for the filmmaker dropping those hints as it is for the audience catching them.

It’s when you’re a big fan of Cate Blanchett, and you know her so well you notice a random extra in Hot Fuzz has the same eyes as her… which you then find out it was in fact her and you go crazy and throw a Cate Blanchett party.

Or when your fellow entrepreneur and friend Richard Branson is getting frisked in the background in the airport scene of Casino Royale and you’re like ‘Hey, I know that guy!’ And you give him a call later and you share a laugh together. Good times.

This is a fun little trivia video showing all the random cameos in movie scenes you could have easily missed unless you’re not human and never blink.

Movies are versatile. They have valuable themes and give us inspiration, but sometimes they get even more creative and tell us an inside joke even when no one would get it.
