Movies take a long time to create and directors try to make the process more fun for themselves by introducing hidden Easter eggs, spoilers and even tributes to other movies. You probably know about popular movie inside jokes such as Stan Lee’s cameos which can be seen in every Marvel movie but there are some clues which are so well hidden that not even hawk-eyed movie fans noticed them.
What’s interesting about hidden movie clues is that some of them are so outrageous that they actually give away the movie’s ending! This shows how confident some directors are in their skills and the actors’ ability to make fans keep their eyes focused on them. Nonetheless, here are 25 famous movie clues that you probably missed when you watched them for the first time.

As you can clearly see, Tron’s director is probably a huge Pac Man fan.
