You know him as Neo from The Matrix and as Ted from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. But did you know Keanu Reeves has a strange habit of playing guys named John?

If you’ve seen Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins, you probably remember the great scene where Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) and Ducard (Liam Neeson) fight on a frozen lake. But did you know that all throughout the day Bale and Neeson shot this scene, they could hear cracks in the ice beneath their feet?

It’s one of the most famous and important horror movies of all time: Night of the Living Dead. But did you know that wasn’t always the title? The film was originally going to be called Night of the Flesh Eaters, until it was discovered that a movie called The Flesh Eaters already existed. Director George A. Romero preferred the title Night of Anubis, in reference to the Egyptian god of embalming, but with so few people knowing who Anubis was (much less praying to him), the title was eventually changed to the one that became synonymous with movie zombies. That’s just one of the facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

Last week, SNL writer Kate Rich shared a tasteless joke on social media; within hours, the writer was suspended indefinitely (fired).

Rich is a woman, and on SNL (as in many real life circumstances), women are not afforded the opportunity to screw up

You know that James Earl Jones provided the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars films. But did you know when Star Wars was first released in 1977, Jones was not listed in the closing credits? Over the years he’s claimed that the reason for the omission was his belief that he hadn’t done enough work to deserve billing, and later confessed that he worried that if he was credited he would be typecast as a bad guy for the rest of his career. Jones’ name was added to the credits of the film when it was released in 1997 in its “Special Edition.” That’s just one of the Star Wars Special Edition facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
