According to Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, 80% of the movie was improvised. “My style of working is I’ll often be behind the camera or right next to the camera yelling words at people, like, ’Say this, say this! Say it this way!’ I’ll straight-up give Anthony Hopkins a line reading. I don’t care,”  Waititi said. Perhaps he intended to create an environment where individuals would feel comfortable sharing any views as if they were speaking with old friends. And the outcomes were stunning.

The actor admitted, “In the first movie, we made mistakes where I did blink,” said the actor. “And then when we got to the second movie, I said to Jim [Cameron], ‘There’s no room for mistakes. There will be no blinking, ever.’”  His decision was right. He actually resembles a walking brick wall, which made the movie rather terrifying.

At first, Francis Ford Coppola had no intention of using a cat to kill Don Corleone. The director claimed, “I saw the cat running around the studio and I took it and put it in his hands without a word.”  Marlon Brando didn't care.

They even wanted the subtitles. This sweet purring is still heard on the original soundtrack.
