Ever since film was invented, movies have been a huge part of our culture. They can be used to draw out so many emotions in people. There is something about watching other humans that really touches something deep with ourselves. When you get actors and actresses who are very good at what they do, the raw humanity and emotion they can show is truly something to be marveled at. We tend to forget how much goes into the whole movie making process however. Especially in todays cinematic circle where CGI and special effects are becoming more and more common. Actors can only do so much when the creativity of the writers and producers of movies today want to take us to different worlds and places in time and space. Using computers and special effects has become a necessity for most blockbuster movies that hit the big screen today. Check out some pictures from behind the scenes of some of the biggest movies of the past 10 years!
It would be interesting while you were filming this scene to think of how the final product was going to turn out. That you would be dangling from your own hair.
So many Johnny Depp stunt doubles!
Setting up for scenes like this would be exhausting. The end result is however is totally worth it.
Orlando Bloom and Stellan Skarsgård give some big smiles for the camera. How could you not be happy doing this stuff all day?
Imagine being filmed in just grey jumpsuits, and at the premier seeing yourself like this!
This looks like it would be an absolute blast!
So many of the movies that we watch nowadays use a green screen as a background.
What an amazing transformation!
I wonder how long it took these two in makeup to get the hair and beards right.
I may feel a little bit silly riding that green thing and trying to act all aggressive.
I can’t imagine being the guy who did all the movements for Gollum. He is one of the most interesting characters in Lord Of The Rings and the guy who plays him probably never gets any credit.
You have to have fun with each other on set. Otherwise it would be a really tough job.
I would feel weird talking to a green ball like that. You do what you have to as an actor though.
It’s amazing how they go from half of a Hulk suit, to a fully functioning and butt kicking Hulk with just the power of a computer.
Mark Ruffalo has been by far the best Hulk. He doesn’t even need the screen suit to look like him!
Apparently the brotherly hatred is only for on-screen action.
After watching the movies, you would have never thought that you would see something like this. Bellatrix Lestrange giving Harry Potter a big smooch.
Another site you would never have thought you’d see. Professor Snape and Harry actually sharing a laugh with Ron Weasley.
This would be an uncomfortable way to sit for long periods of time.
One of my favorite scenes of the entire series happens right here. The aerial broom battle with the Death Eaters.
Who knew you could defend yourself with a hammer against Voldemort.
This looks like a backyard wrestling match my friends and I would have when we were kids.
Getting paid to do fight choreography and throw your body around would be pretty awesome.
Every single person in this shot looks miserable except Kristen Stewart. Has anyone ever been able to say that before?
Holy crap! Another one where she looks happy! This has gotta be some kind of record.
That’s more like it. Taylor Lautner is there to comfort her though, so it’s not so bad.
It would definitely be hard to take these zombies seriously if I saw them in real life.
Apparently till death do us part wasn’t enough for this guy.
The amount of work that goes into The Walking Dead is insane. Turning so many people into zombies can’t be easy.
Wow, Arya and Bran look so young compared to now!
I would kill for a selfie with a White Walker! Actually I would probably be killed for the selfie with a White Walker.
These two characters together are absolutely hilarious on Game Of Thrones.
Game Of Thrones broaches on some very dark and serious subject matter. You would have to laugh while the cameras weren’t rolling to keep some sanity.
What TV show set would be complete without a big cast selfie!
Actors and actresses really are just regular people. Filming TV shows and movies, while not the most stressful thing in the world, can take its toll on someone. The constant change of travel and change of environment can cause a lot of stress. These behind the scenes photos of movie set secrets show though that while it can be stressful, it can be pretty darn fun too. The casts and crews of these TV shows and movies work hard everyday so we can sit in front of our TV’s and watch some good programming.
