Little known fact: all of the deaths in that movie were improvised, originally no actors or extras were meant to die.
Spielberg is a convicted man-slaughterer
Classic Steve what a prankster
Lmao what a chad
This is false information. Steven Spielberg could not be present on set that day so be asked Stanley Kubrick to cover for him. It was his decision.
Kubrick then spent the rest of the day torturing the extras to produce more realistic reactions to war.
When the filming was over and it was apparent that nobody had hit Hanks, the German actors were all given a copy of Bachelor Party. By the end of the week 4 of the Germans had killed themselves...
What about Steamboat Willie, he hit Hanks right?
While they shoot him, Steven Spielberg wanted the Germans to shout out "Run Forrest run!" to give a subtle reference to Hanks' other movie Forrest Gump (1994).
and george lucas was there too and he was filming the whole time,
still cant believe they didnt let him put "Nazi Rocks" club/concert scene in the movie
Kurosawa did that on Throne of Blood. He shot real arrows at Mifune.
The opening scene was so brutal and realistic, some war veterans actually walked out of theaters
The Germans were also portrayed so realistically that many French audiences tried to surrender
I don't understand the French reputation? They've retreated far less than the US and have a battle hardened reputation everywhere but the USA. They've also won almost every engagement they go into. Sounds like envy.
Uhh, got'em. Got'em good.
Even for shittymoviedetails this one's kind of really shitty
But that's the whole point right?
To this day doctors claim it was the heart attack that killed Mr. Hanks and not the seventy two bullets that riddled his body.
Another insurance hickey avoided.
This prank backfired obviously and this tragedy is now known as [D-Day](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ)
For real though, in another ww2 film "come and see" live ammunition was actually used
That movie hits different, really difficult to watch sometimes
it's called we do a little trolling
The German actors actually had been storm trooper extras in Star Wars. Spielberg knew Hanks would be safe.
Tom Scott has an amazing pair of tits
Since that day, Tom Hanks has been played irl by his body double.
lmao what an absolute lad
For live action movies/shows, it’s true
For live action movies/shows, it’s TRUMP!
Boys will be boys
The grin + wiggle is a nice touch
It's just a prank bro!
Wish they would have hit the paedo
Seems Steve was just taking a page out of George's book and sinply was "filming the entire time"
It’s just a prank Hank
The first 15 minutes were supposed to be cut, but Spielberg's wife had a baby on the way, and dedicated that scene as their child's gender reveal party.
The real tragedy was knocking over that pile of office chairs in the pic
I actually heard that he developed a real time machine and sent Hanks and the cameraman back in time to real Normandy landing as a prank. Classic Spielberg.
Then he made him go home and run across the country.
It looks like someone buried a bunch of Walmart office chairs in the sand wheels up
QUITE INFACTURATE, MY GOOD SIR
Steven Spielberg = Grand Moff Tarkin confirmed??
This is attempted murder, not a prank
It was a grand crack, mate
Tom Hanks is lucky that i don’t have control over my "Time Manipulation Room" or TMR for short since i’d actually do something like that
“Chill it was just a prank bro!!! See there are cameras right there!!!”
