Making a movie is often a labor of love. Directors and filmmakers invest a tremendous amount of effort into ensuring everything on screen helps establish their world or story. However, the sheer amount of action happening at any given moment makes it easy to miss hidden details in your favorite movies.
For most fans, it take multiple viewings to notice a strategically placed Easter egg in a favorite Disney movie or horror film. These difficult-to-notice Easter eggs often hold a special significance within the movie. They may hint at a future event or provide clues into a mystery. These crazy movie details are better than any real-life Easter egg you've come across.

In The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Faramir takes Sam and Frodo to Osgiliath. While pleading for their release so they can continue their quest, Sam tells Faramir the pair of them should not go to Osgiliath.
This plea has more than one meaning: In the novel, Frodo and Sam never go to Osgiliath, so they shouldn’t travel there in the film adaptation, either.
