There are many unexpected accidents leading to humorous moments in movies!

Casino Royale (james Bond 007) (2006)

Daniel Craig has claimed that the defining moment of his James Bond debut, in which he emerged from the sea in a pair of tight trunks, was an accident. The scene in Casino Royale became the most recognisable image of Craig in his new role as 007 and turned him into an international sex symbol. However, according to Craig, the scene was not in the script and only happened because the actor swam into an awkwardly sited sand bank.

"It was actually by accident," he said. "Where we filmed, off the Bahamas, it's just one of those places where there is a sand shelf and the sand shelf happens to be three feet deep. Because the idea was, I was supposed to swim in and sort of float off, but I swim in and stand up. And it was just one of those things."

Star Wars Rebels - Season 1 (2014)

In Star Wars, Luke Skywalker puts on a stormtrooper's helmet and exclaims, "I can't see anything in this thing!" Indeed, because the helmet genuinely had a poor field of view, Mark Hamill bumps his head against a doorframe in one scene.

It was decided to keep this in the final cut, and the shot of the "clumsy stormtrooper" became one of the most famous of the franchise.

3. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

In The Lord of the Rings there is a scene where a clumsy Gandalf bangs his head against a light fitting in the cramped confines of Bilbo Baggins's home. This one was in the script, but the next blow - against a doorframe - occurred by accident. His gasp and surprised laughter were so good that director Peter Jackson decided to leave this accident in the scene.

4. Rain Man (1988)

One of the most memorable scenes was created by accident. The scene in which two brothers got in a phone booth was blessed with a sudden rainstorm. Bad weather was a highlight for the film.

5.Django Unchained (2012)


There's a scene where DiCaprio's Candie is confronting Django (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. Shultz (Christoph Waltz), the two bounty hunters that are masquerading as prospective buyers for Candie's services. Candie learns of the deception and goes into a hate-filled tirade against the two inposters. During the scene, DiCaprio slams his hand down on the dining table.

It was during one of these takes that DiCaprio brought his hand down on some crystal, smashing it and in the process cut his hand open. Blood began to leak out, but that didn't stop the actor from continuing the take right through to the end.
