Movie Set And Prop Details That Demand A Rewatch

List Rules
Vote up the details you missed the first time around.

Movies are the product of thousands of hours of work from hundreds of different people, often spread all over the world. It's far more than a writer, director, and a bunch of actors. Some of the most important people on a movie set are the ones who put those sets together. Whether they construct massive objects, paint backdrops, or place items in specific spots, someone worked hard to make sure everything looks just right. This is often true of animated films as well because someone had to take the time to draw an important detail into the background whenever necessary.

Because of this, there are often clues or Easter eggs sitting there in plain sight for any viewer to see. Because these items (and some great details) tend to blend in with the background, not everyone notices them. When someone does see one of these well-placed movie set and prop details, they occasionally post them on the MovieDetails subreddit. This list takes a look at the best examples of movie set and prop details that most people missed and demand a rewatch. Take a look at them down below, and before you head out to rewatch some of these great films, be sure to upvote your favorites to see which one rises to the top!
