The Top Five Worst Extras in Movie History
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies, You Think You Know TV, and Post Credits comes a brand new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
Our fifth episode looks past the movie stars and special effects to the folks in the background of the frame, the men and women known as extras. When they do their job right, extras are invisible. When they don’t ... well, then you’ve got a problem, and you wind up with the five men, women, and children who make up our latest video list. Our picks run the gamut from massive flops to enormous blockbusters, and feature dudes trying to get rid of dogs and ladies wandering around with their pants down. Yep, it’s a weird bunch.
Top Five is a new ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our fifth episode, but we’re just getting started! Check out our past episodes below, and enjoy some of the best installments of our sister series, You Think You Know Movies. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes!
