In the film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Shailene Woodley was cast as Mary-Jane Watson, and even filmed scenes. But her role was cut from the film because the filmmakers felt there were too many characters and wanted to streamline the series, and have Gwen Stacy be the only love interest for the rest of the series.
In the film Chicago, during the song “Cell Block Tango” the character Hunyak speaks in Hungarian, but the actress is Russian. Her accent makes the speech difficult to understand, even for native Hungarian speakers.
One year ago today I created the Film Junkie blog. My very first film review I wrote was of a movie I discovered on Netflix called Grave Encounters. Here is the review: https://filmjunkie13.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/grave-encounters/
I would like to thank all of my followers on here; I love that you all seem to enjoy reading all of Film Junkie’s posts. And as long as you guys keep coming back, Film Junkie will be here!
To help celebrate, leave a comment of a film you would like me to review. Or if you don’t have a movie you want reviewed, just comment with the name of your favorite film.

Uma Thurman originally turned down the role of Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino was so desperate to have her as Mia, he ended up reading her the script over the phone, finally convincing her to take on the role.
Hey there, fellow cinephiles!
After a somewhat long hiatus, Film Junkie is back! I personally have been very busy with school (who knew junior year of college could be so time consuming?), and it has killed me a little on the inside that I haven’t updated this site in such a long time. I love talking about movies, and with Film Junkie’s ONE YEAR birthday coming up soon (April 29!), I decided it’s time to add more room in my schedule and continue updating Film Junkie. I also decided it was time to change Film Junkie’s appearance a bit. I gotta say, I’m really liking the new layout/theme!
Expect more reviews, more trivia, more pictures, more randomness, and more of what we movie buffs love and adore!
Today the Kings of Leon music video I was an extra in last month was released today. I was really excited to watch it and it did not disappoint. Also, I’m pretty excited that I actually showed up on camera! As I mentioned in my “The Day I Was An Extra” post, I was a rodeo spectator. I appear in the video towards the end. Look for me–I’m wearing sunglasses and a brown jacket and I’m on the left side of the screen.
So, here it is, the Beautiful War music video:
Were you or someone you know an extra that day? What was your favorite memory from the video shoot?
Comment on what you think of the video! Yay or nay?
