The injuries on Mark Hamill's face during the snow monster attack in The Empire Strikes Back were real injuries. Hamill had gotten into a car accident and severely inured his face. Instead of dealing filming, George Lucas just worked it into the film.

I couldn't find a good picture that showed his injuries, but this one was close enough. The lighting just wasn't so hot.

The Bollywood movie industry produces more movies than Hollywood each year. Bollywood produces upwards of 1,000 movies per year, although they don't receive the same amount of acclaim as Hollywood movies.

2006's Casino Royale was the first James Bond movie that could be watched in China. It was the first of the film franchise to be approved by the Chinese censor board.

Whoa. I mean, that's a lot of other James Bond movies that weren't approved!

The first interracial kiss on television happened in Star Trek. The network originally didn't want to air it, but William Shatner sabotaged all of the other shoots and forced the network to run the kiss!

Ha! That makes me laugh! Shatner basically forced them to air it! Good for him!
