Bloopers That Snuck Their Way Into Sci-Fi Movies
By LIAM GAUGHAN
Bangs His Head
While some fans believed the stormtrooper hitting his head on the "Death Star" door during the chase scene in "Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope" was intentional, actor Laurie Goode actually hit his head because he was overwhelmingly sick with stomach issues. Later, Goode claimed he was shocked that George Lucas kept the take.
Dropping the Orb
In "Guardians of the Galaxy," Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) delivers the orb to the Collector (Benicio del Toro) but accidentally drops it. In a director's commentary, Pratt says to James Gunn that he dropped the prop on purpose, but Gunn said he only believes him "about 90%."
Donald Glover Trips
In "The Martian," Donald Glover's character Rich gets so excited about his plan that he leaps out of his chair and accidentally falls over; Glover later revealed on "Conan" that he needed an ice pack after he tripped. Director Ridley Scott kept the take in the movie because he felt it was important to capture authentic moments of human error.
Naked Skrull
In "Captain Marvel," after a Skrull, an alien with the ability to impersonate others, who was passing for Agent Coulson is killed, Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) examines the corpse and lifts the sheet covering the alien to see what its body looks like naked. According to the directors, Jackson improvised the scene, which was kept in the final cut because they thought it was hilarious.
Touching Steve's Chest
In "Captain America: The First Avenger," Peggy Carter (Haley Atwell) is so shocked by Steve Rogers’ (Chris Evans) transformation that she instinctively reaches out to touch his chest. Atwell said that it had been instinctive, but "they kept it in the film."
