Decades after his death, Alfred Hitchcock is still considered one of the greatest directors of all time. But did you know that in addition to his reputation as the “Master of Suspense,” Hitchcock was also a notorious (no pun intended) prankster? He once bet someone they couldn’t spend the night in a darkened movie studio, chained to a camera. Once the man agreed to the bet, and got into position, Hitchcock offered him some brandy - laced with a laxative. That’s just one of the shocking facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Okay, so it was one of the worst summer movie seasons in recent memory. Trying to find the good blockbusters amongst the last four months releases sometimes felt like trying to find a needle in a stack of s---. But even this year there were diamonds in the rough. Today we’re celebrating the ten best, the summer movies of 2016 that didn’t make us weep for the future of cinema — and note that this list is just movies that got wide releases in at least 500 theaters. We’ll have a separate piece on under-the-radar summer films you might have missed next week on ScreenCrush. In the meantime, let’s celebrate the highlights from a depressing summer before we clear the decks and get ready for the fall.
Thor doesn’t go anywhere without his famous hammer Mjolnir. But did you know the Mjolnir seen in Thor: The Dark World is different than the ones in Thor and The Avengers? It’s 10 percent larger than the first Mjolnir, and it’s design incorporates elements from Thor’s new costume in The Dark World. That’s just one of the Asgardian facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
After a winter that felt like it would never end (we’re still not entirely sure it ever did end), summer is finally here! OK, well the summer movie season is here anyway and with it comes sequels, reboots, remakes, prequels, adaptations, spinoffs and, if you look hard enough, some original movies too...
The short version: There’s lots of new stuff coming to Netflix this May, including the returns of Netflix Originals Bloodline and Grace and Frankie.

Last October, to commemorate the day Marty McFly traveled to in the future in Back to the Future, Part II, Nike and Michael J.

Well, it’s 2016, where are our self-lacing sneakers?! Today, Nike debuted a new video of their self-lacing shoes in action, plus some more details.

Billy the Puppet has become one of the most recognizable faces in modern horror. But, he’s actually just made up of some scraps that were lying around. Director James Wan made the original Billy puppet himself using papier-mâché, ping-pong balls for eyes and cardboard paper towel tubes for the body.
