That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes you behind the scenes of the first film in the Harry Potter movies!
Before Mike Myers became synonymous with the green ogre named Shrek, his fellow SNL castmate Chris Farley was actually cast in the role and had recorded about 80-90% of his dialogue. Then, in 1997, Farley tragically died of a drug overdose, DreamWorks was forced to recast the role and, in doing so, radically rethink their version of Shrek. Today, the first footage of Farley as Shrek has popped up online and shows a very different character than the one we have come to know and love.
While it took over 10 years to get a fourth Jurassic Park movie made, Chris Pratt somehow knew he’d be the one to star in it. In a 2010 behind the scenes video for Season 2 of Parks and Recreation, Pratt joked about getting a text message from Steven Spielberg asking him to star in Jurassic Park 4. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which checks out some facts a million years in the making with Jurassic World!
Chris Pratt, now potentially Hollywood’s biggest star after Jurassic World became the fastest film ever to gross $400 million, has a history of making kids happy.

Hot off the success of Jurassic World, Pratt was back at it again this weekend, visiting Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and while there he showed off some of his raptor training skills he’s becoming well-known for.
Jurassic World recently set the record for the biggest opening weekend at the box office with $209 million.

Just before filming began on Avengers: Age of Ultron, Scarlett Johansson found out she was pregnant.

Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy meet the fans to kickoff the festival “in a big way.” We’ll be there to report on all the details, but if you can’t wait until then, a new report has been posted online that details what new footage we’ll see when the new Star Wars trailer finally arrives.
There’s a running joke in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that Indy took his nickname from the family dog. That joke has some truth to it though because as George Lucas was developing Raiders of the Lost Ark, he actually named the character after his dog, Jones (the “Indiana” was a riff on Steve McQueen character Nevada Smith). Coincidentally, the same dog was the inspiration for Chewbacca in Star Wars. Need more Raiders of the Lost Ark facts? Throw us the idol and we’ll throw you the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
