The folks over at CineFix are back with another installment of their “Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know“ YouTube video series.
We’ve already seen them dive into director David Fincher‘s Fight Club not just once but a second time as well. Now they’re visiting another one of Fincher’s works, 1995’s Se7en starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Spacey, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The new video offers seven facts, fittingly, that you might not know about the movie. You can give it a watch below.

It’s not always easy being an otaku, a cosplayer, or even just a fan, especially when dealing with friends, neighbors, loved ones, and society in general. Opinions among the ani-muggles can run the gamut from “immature” to “perverted” and everything seemingly negative in between. What are two people to do when they have almost nothing – at least at first glance – in common?
That’s a question that the series I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying, or Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai ken, tackles with self-referencing gusto.
Anyone who has spent some time watching videos on YouTube has more than likely come across one or two unboxing videos. For those who aren’t familiar, the videos basically just show someone opening up a package containing some exciting new product, such as the next big video game console or Apple product, for example, so that others can see how the product looks before they get their own hands on one.
Taking this basic idea, YouTube channel NonRandomNonSense has created a brilliant—albeit very dark—parody of the everyday unboxing video. In their version, it’s Morgan Freeman doing the unboxing as his character in the movie Se7en.
If you’ve seen the movie, you have a pretty good idea of where this is going and can watch the video below…and if you’ve not seen the movie, stop reading this now and go watch it.
Julia Roberts smiles. Tom Cruise runs. Brad Pitt…well he eats.
Movieclips has assembled a brief video montage of Pitt enjoying various foodstuffs and libations in movies like Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy, Johnny Suede, Troy, Burn After Reading, Seven, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Kalifornia, and The Mexican. The most time is given to Meet Joe Black, the movie best known for introducing the Grim Reaper to the joys of peanut butter. Thus a love affair for the ages was set in motion.
Empire Magazine celebrated their 20th anniversary a while back, and they made sure to do it proper. Many big news stories and goodies came from the event, but one of the big plans they hatched, was to attempt to book a bunch of the world’s biggest Hollywood stars for a photo shoot where they would re-create some of their own classic film scenes.
The result: big stars showed up. Lot’s of them. And though they didn’t get completely dressed in costume (the plan was to simply shoot them in nice attire with obvious props used to clarify the film), many fantastic images now exist. The list of names is impressive and includes Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Mel Gibson, Laurence Fishburne, Ben Stiller, Viggo Mortensen, Kevin Spacey, Matt Damon, Anthony Hopkins, and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, naturally! Movies that were re-created include Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Braveheart, The Matrix, Sev7en, Silence of the Lambs, Jurassic Park, and Shaun of the Dead.
