With Easter just around the corner, lots of kids are gearing up to rummage in their backyards for small plastic eggs. As their furious excitement proves, there’s nothing quite like a treasure hunt.
Some movie directors tend to agree, infusing their films with precious hidden Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans to discover. The eggs in question, though, aren’t pastel-colored toys with Hershey kisses inside. Instead, they’re small inside jokes, references, and winks for the hyper-vigilant viewer.
We bet you probably waltzed past some of these in your movie-watching stupor. Once you become aware of the magic of movie Easter eggs, though, you’ll be searching for them everywhere.
