Behind-the-Scenes Photos from Famous Movie Sets


 ‘The Shining’ (1980)

It wasn’t all redrum and axes on the set of this terrifying thriller — remember what Jack Torrance said about “all work and no play”? Director Stanley Kubrick snapped this early “selfie” of him and his daughter Vivian (with the film’s iconic star, Jack Nicholson, blurred out), who’s posted a plethora of great pics from her father’s productions on her Twitter account.


 ‘Conan the Detroyer’ (1984)

This is the definition of a Big Three: Wilt Chamberlain, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Andre the Giant, seen here goofing around on the set of this sequel to “Conan the Barbarian.” You know the guys flanking him are large when the Governator is the small guy in the photo. [via Bigfoot Evidence]


 ‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994)

Hey Bruce, you’ve got a little bit of a stain there on your shirt. A bloodied Bruce Willis poses for a perfectly linear shot with writer-director Quentin Tarantino, costar Maria de Medeiros, and producer Lawrence Bender on the set of this cinematic favorite. [via Awesomenator]


 ‘The Fantastic Mr. Fox’ (2009)

For those of us who consider Bill Murray a giant (or god) amongst men, this image of him napping (pretending to nap?) on the miniature set of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animation film makes all the sense in the world. [via imgur]


 ‘Star Wars’ (Episode Unknown)

Shield your eyes if you don’t want to know what R2-D2 and C-3PO look like undressed. Here’s your chance to see Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels – smiling in this frame, but in real life not the best of friends – with their tops down, so to speak. [viaThis Is Not Porn]


 ‘Superman’ (1978)

Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder were photographed as they prepared to take flight (in front of a green screen) on Richard Donner’s seminal superhero movie. Awfully nice of the stars to also work the film slate. [via This Is Not Porn]


 ‘Gold Rush’ (1925)

Charlie Chaplin did it all. He wrote, he starred, and he directed — which the Tramp seems to be doing here. (Yes, it’s a silent film: the bullhorn was for him to shout instructions to cast and crew). [via The Criteron Collection]


 ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ (2012)

Even superheroes need to relieve themselves. Lifelong Spidey fan Andrew Garfield has made the most of his time playing the web crawler, showing up at Comic-Con in costume — and having a photographer shadow him to take photos of a ‘A Day in the Life of Spider-Man,’ which he shared with“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”


 ‘Goodfellas’ (1990)

Martin Scorsese looks right at home in between Ray Liotta and Robert De Niro on set of his modern mobster classic. We’re guessing that they’re prepping for one of the card-game scenes here (and not actually playing cards). [via Empire]
